SS Christian Arroyo
the 20-year old shortstop Arroyo was drafted in the first round of the 2013 draft, and he chose to take his $1,866,500 signing bonus to go pro instead of accepting one of his many college scholarship offers. Arroyo is noted to have great discipline at the plate, while also being a line drive hitter.
After being promoted to high Single-A ball in San Jose this year, Arroyo has hit with confidence and it is paying off as he is slashing .311/.352/.473 with 41 RBIs. To add, Arroyo has been solid at shortstop with a .965 fielding percentage.
Scouts describe Arroyo as a smart player with good tools. The 20-year old may have to wait a while for a promotion to the Giants as Joe Panik and Brandon Crawford are expected to be in a San Francisco uniform for a long time.
