RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A legend at the age of 16 known simply as "Lazarito," the Cuban outfielder played with the imagination of prospect fiends before he signed, and certainly before he did anything of substance in a competitive baseball environment. While he came with a cool one-word nickname that was reminiscent of those that adorned the great Brazilian soccer players of past decades, the hype surrounding Armenteros did not match his value in dynasty leagues, so a bit of a backlash has started. Reports from instructs were not positive, and it is clear that this is one international free agent signing who is not going to cruise through the rookie leagues. Players don't get nicknames like that without having some talent, and Armenteros certainly has exciting raw tools, but there is an emphasis on "raw." He is worth monitoring if he gets a taste of the Dominican Summer League this year, but there are at least a half dozen better players to stash from last year's international signing class.
