Marco Luciano
18-Year-Old ShortstopSS
2019 Fantasy Outlook
According to Baseball America, the top international prospects from the last four July 2 signing classes were: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (2015), Kevin Maitan (2016), Wander Franco (2017) and Luciano (2018). Guerrero is the top prospect in baseball, Franco is the odds-on favorite to enter 2020 as the game's top prospect, and Maitan is droppable in most dynasty leagues, so there are extreme examples on both ends of the spectrum. A very athletic 6-foot-2, 178 pounds, Luciano is a different type of prospect than those aforementioned top J-2 signees. There will be some swing and miss in his game, but the hope is that as he matures, he will settle in as a .270 or .280 hitter with huge power and enough speed to steal double-digit bases. He could end up at shortstop, third base or the outfield. Luciano is expected to be aggressively assigned to the AZL at the outset of his age-17 season. Read Past Outlooks
