2018 High 45 No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 45 Noisy setup, early deep load, pinches front hip, tight coil; noisy hand load, abrupt hitch, rotational swing, flat path, shows contact ability, quality hand-eye; lots of moving parts, falls out of his mechanics for stretches, hefty swing-and-miss in and out of zone; fringe-average potential, needs to grow into better consistency
Power 30 Bottom-scale, lacks present strength or plane to drive pitches with carry; physical projection and speed for 30 game down the line, very limited over-the-fence, will produce extra bases with his legs
Baserunning/Speed 60 Plus runner, 4.06 home-to-first, gets out of the box quickly, efficient running motion; tentative reads, raw speed to steal bases with solid efficiency
Glove 50 Relatively even reps in three spots, only saw in left; couple rough reads, speed to make up for slow start-up, fluid fielding motion, speed plays, shows some track-and-close ability; average projection in a corner
Arm 55 Above-average velocity with excellent carry, accurate, could play up to a plus utility in left, plenty of arm strength to acquit in right

Signed out of Venezuela in 2012, Carrizales is an athletic, versatile outfielder with a solid speed-and-defense skill set. There's a lot of noise and movement to the swing, with a malleable barrel delivery that combines with hand-eye coordination to produce decent bat-to-ball skills in spite of some swing-and-miss. He demonstrates enough feel for contact to threaten a starting role down the line if the hit tool maxes out, with fourth-outfielder utility a more likely outcome.
