Juan Brito has performed well in the minors, but Nolan Jones' performance for the Rockies in the second half of last season has made that November 2022 swap look like one of the more lopsided prospect for prospect trades in recent memory. For his part, Brito is trending like a bat-first infielder who could hit for a decent average with a strong OBP and 20-homer pop. He spent most of his age-21 season at Double-A while also seeing time at High-A and Triple-A en route to a .271/.377/.434 season line with 14 home runs, a 15.9 percent strikeout rate and a 14.1 percent walk rate in 127 games. Unlike many young Guardians infielders, Brito won't add much defensive value, either at second or third base, so he needs to reach his potential as an offensive player. He is already on the 40-man roster and could debut in 2024 if there is a need.
