Cedrola's 2017 season was cut short due to ankle surgery, Baseball America's Alex Speier reports. He hit .285/.322/.387 with four home runs and 19 steals on 26 attempts in 92 games as a 19-year-old at Low-A prior to the injury. This should not sideline him this spring, but prospective dynasty-league owners need to be aware of the fact that his stolen-base totals at High-A could be affected, at least early on. He is a plus runner and quality defender in center field. It will be on him to prove he can hit enough in the upper levels to profile as more than a bench outfielder.
Cedrola is slashing .270/.315/.375 with 12 stolen bases (15 attempts) in 200 at-bats with Low-A Greenville this season. The 19-year-old outfielder is in the midst of a 3-for-30 slump, but he preceded that with an 11-game hitting streak in which he hit .381. Cedrola has struggled mightily against right-handed pitching with a .221/.271/.275 slash line and is still adjusting after his last two seasons in rookie ball.
