Diamondbacks' Deyvison De Los Santos: Bumped to Double-A at 19
De Los Santos was promoted to Double-A Amarillo on Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
It's pretty remarkable that De Los Santos opened the year at Single-A as an 18-year-old and is now poised to finish the year at Double-A as a 19-year-old. The slugging phenom's plate skills have been a little suspect, particularly at High-A (4.2 BB%, 32.5 K%), but he still managed to be incredibly productive relative to age and level, slashing .278/.307/.506 with nine home runs and a .228 ISO in 38 games. He will likely open 2023 back at Double-A, as he doesn't turn 20 until June 21.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Deyvison De Los Santos: Hot start in High-A
De Los Santos has hit .329/.345/.565 with five homers and a steal in 20 games since being promoted to High-A Hillsboro.
Those are impressive numbers, but they come with two major asterisks: a .418 BABIP and a 2:25 BB:K. However, he's also a 19-year-old in a league where he's 3.5 years younger than the average player, so the fact that he's been able to put up gaudy numbers early on in High-A despite facing more advanced pitching has to weigh in his favor. He won't be rushed to the big leagues and he may not stick at third base, where he's been an absolute butcher this season (15 errors), but there are precious few minor leaguers who can match his power....

Diamondbacks' Deyvison De Los Santos: Has himself a week
De Los Santos recorded three hits in five separate games for Single-A Visalia last week, earning a spot on the Pipeline Prospect Team of the Week, Tylor Maun of MLB.com reports.
De Los Santos went 15-for-26 with two home runs, one triple, six RBI and six runs scored over six games against Inland Empire. Overall, the corner infielder is slashing .315/.355/.508 with 11 homers and 56 RBI over 61 games for the Rawhide. Standing at 6-foot-1 and 185-pounds, the 19-year-old has the body for power. The Diamondbacks hope his body lets him stick at third base, but there remains a chance he outgrows the position and has to move across the diamond to first base.... See More ... See Less
