Organization Prospect Rankings
Track Record: After going homer-less in 2017, Lantigua proved to be one of the better power hitters in the Rookie-level Arizona League in 2018, when he finished with a league-best 26 extra-base hits and was third in the league with eight home runs.
Scouting Report: Lantigua is an athletic switch-hitter who has plus raw power. The raw power should translate to above-average productive power from both sides of the plate. His swing gets long from time to time, making it difficult to generate consistent contact. His above-average speed gives him a chance to stay in center field. His plus arm would also fit in right, with some scouts believing he'll end up outgrowing center field and sliding over.
The Future: Playing more games at the rookie level would be beneficial, as more consistent contact is needed before making the next jump. His defensive tools and intriguing power give him a chance to be an everyday corner outfielder on a second-division team.
