Organization Prospect Rankings
The Diamondbacks scout Mexico heavier than most teams and feel they've found a sleeper in Murillo. Like fellow infielders Alberto Gonzales and Emilio Bonifacio, Murillo took a step forward in most aspects of his game while repeating low Class A last year. Athletic and strong, he's a good hitter with some pop in his bat. The key to his 2005 success was that he made great strides in his pitch recognition, consistently putting himself in hitter's counts. He can become a little too enamored with his power at times. Murillo is no more than an average runner, and he could lose some speed as he fills out. He's an average defender with enough arm for third base. He's already 23, so the pressure of time is upon him. Murillo will join Gonzales and Bonifacio in high Class A this year.
