2016

At first glance, Urena is a classic light-hitting, defensive shortstop. However, the 19-year-old has shown a profile thatís far more rounded than that. Signed in 2012 at just 16, Urena has quickly developed into an all-around player that has a chance to crack the majors sooner rather than later. After hitting three home runs in his first two minor league seasons, Urena hit 15 in 91 games with Single-A Lansing. In 121 games across Single-A Lansing and High-A Dunedin, Urena hit for a .262/.284/.407 slash line. While the increased pop in his bat is a huge development, he seemed to do so at the expensive of his eye, as his OBP dropped 70 points from 2014 to 2015. Defensively, Urena is excellent; using his rangy frame to track down everything in the hole and make all the necessary throws. With Troy Tulowitzki occupying his position and plenty of levels still to go, look for Urena to start back in High-A Dunedin and crack the MLB in 2018 or so.
