Organization Prospect Rankings
Guaimaro is one of five Venezuelan prospects removed from the Red Sox in 2016 after the organization, according to the office of the commissioner, engaged in circumvention of the international bonus pools by signing several Venezuelan players in "package deals." The Marlins signed Guaimaro in July. He has a compact frame and a short stroke from the right side with good bat speed. He's an aggressive hitter with a line-drive approach, he hits to all fields and the ball already jumps off his bat well. Guaimaro is a good athlete who had been playing center field for the Red Sox, though with his body type, he projects to slow down from his tick above-average speed and would likely end up in right field if he stayed in the outfield. The Marlins had discussed converting Guaimaro to catcher, as he has an above-average throwing arm. Guaimaro has a high baseball IQ and gets high marks for makeup and his love for the game. He should make his U.S. debut in 2017 in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League.
