28. RHP Prelander Berroa

Age: 19
Acquired: Trade (2019, via MIN)
Future Value: 35+
Stock: -1 spot

Prelander Berroa was acquired from the Minnesota Twins in the Sam Dyson trade this summer.

A high-variance righty, Berroa has a potential plus fastball, average slider, and above-average changeup. His command is still a work in progress and there is definite reliever risk. That said, the 5’11” Berroa has been called a dead-ringer for Fernando Rodney and that wouldn’t be a bad outcome either.

The 19-year old Berroa is unlikely to see full-season ball in 2020 and he’ll likely to get another crack at short-season Salem-Keizer to begin the year.
