Allan Cerda possesses one of the best toolsets in the Reds’ farm system. His hit tool is below-average, but the rest of his tool belt is exceptional. And some of those tools are already quite useful.
The hit tool, on the other hand, maybe the deciding element in where Allan Cerda falls in the wide range of possibilities for his future.
He decreased his strikeout rate in Daytona this season from what it was in Greeneville in 2019, but he still struck out 31% of the time, which is significantly more than you want to see a hitter strikeout.
The upside is an above-average defensive centerfielder capable of hitting 25+ home runs, stealing double digit bases, and getting on base at a high rate.
If he reaches his ceiling, you’re talking about an All-Star player.
However, his strikeout percentage in the last two seasons has been high, and it’s come in rookie and A-ball, implying that his ceiling is a bit low as a pitcher who could struggle in the upper minors unless he makes some significant changes.
In this scenario, he’s always had a high walk rate, which is both positive and worrying. It does indicate that he has a strong grasp of the strike zone, which is a positive indicator.
However, that fact, combined with the fact that he still has a high strikeout rate, may indicate that he has a restricted upside in terms of contact due to a flaw in his swing.
In three of the five months of the season, he hit .214 or less (only played 9 games in June). However, he hit.299 in 41 games in July and August.
