Peguero batted last season.

With a .338 wOBA and 108 wRC+, he hit 270/.332/.444. I understand that the figures won’t pop off the paper at first glance. There are a few things to keep in mind.

For starters, he was around three years younger than the typical High-A pitcher. This was his age-20 season, and he had less than 100 plate appearances above Rookie-Ball entering 2021.

In the second part of the season, he was also on fire. Peguero batted .302/.359/.509 with a .374 wOBA and a 130 wRC+ from July 25th to the end of the season.

Peguero’s power improved during the season, with a .209 ISO. He also walked 8.2% of the time, despite striking out 25.3 percent of the time.

The best tool in Peguero’s arsenal is his hit tool. It’s a 60-grade weapon, according to FanGraphs. Meanwhile, his run, fielding, and arm are all projected to receive 55s.

Peguero’s primary flaw is his lack of power, but it isn’t a major worry. He’s demonstrated a great deal of raw strength. He was hitting the ball with authority in 2019, his age-18 season.
