Organization Prospect Rankings
Beltre is a late-blooming but very intriguing switch-hitting outfielder who blossomed in part because he avoided the leg injuries that had slowed his development. He isn't as tooled-up as Rookie-level Billings teammate Jose Siri, but he has superior plate discipline that allows him to get better pitches to hit. Beltre is a plus runner who explodes out of the lefthanded batter's box, making any chopper a potential infield hit. He has some strength in his swing that gives him potentially average power. Both of Beltre's swings work best when he focuses on driving the ball to center field, something he did a better job of executing in 2016. Defensively, his arm plays a tick below-average because of a long arm action, but he has the arm strength to eventually become at least average. His speed plays in center field, where his routes and reads are raw. Beltre will attempt to handle a jump to low Class A Dayton in 2017.
