The top prospect in a relatively light Puerto Rican class, Arroyo transferred to Central Pointe Christian Academy in Kissimmee, Fla. this spring. One of the youngest players in the class, Arroyo won’t turn 18 until a month after the draft and was also the youngest player at Perfect Game’s All-American classic, where he doubled and singled against 92 mph velocity. Arroyo stands out more for his glovework at shortstop than his offensive ability. He’s one of the best defenders in the class and has gotten plus defensive evaluations from scouts. Arroyo has impressive actions in the field and quick reactions off the bat, with reliable hands and easy plus arm strength. He has thrown 96 mph across the diamond on the showcase circuit and is a unique athlete who is ambidextrous and can throw with both hands. He’ll turn in plus run times underway, but evaluators haven’t gotten those run times out of the box given how his swing works. He’s a switch-hitter who has shown some barrel control and gap power, but his bat can also get in and out of the zone quickly and at times he’s looked overmatched against the best arms in the class. He could grow into more power as he fills out a lean, 6-foot, 170-pound frame, but is presently a contact-oriented hitter who has good instincts on the bases. Arroyo is committed to Florida State but could go in the top several rounds to a team willing to be patient with his offensive development.
