Drafted in the 3rd round (99th overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2019 (signed for $472,500)
The top 2019 draft prospect from Hawaii, Sasaki is a 6-foot, 160-pound center fielder with a solid all-around package and good instincts on the field. Sasaki’s best tool at the moment might be his running ability, which is a 55-grade tool that allows him to cover expansive ground in the outfield when paired with excellent jumps off the bat. He has solid-average arm strength. Offensively, Sasaki has sneaky pop for how small he is, and scouts think he could get to average power and be an average hitter at the next level. He has a big, aggressive swing that could lead to more whiffs in the future, but it works just fine for him at the moment. While there’s no obvious plus tool with Sasaki, there’s no real hole in his game either, and that could be enough for a team to try and buy him out of his Cal Poly commitment on Day 2.
