Player Outlook
The Astros farm system is as weak as it has been in recent memory, and Luis Baez is arguably the most appealing player in the system for dynasty leagues. A righty-hitting slugger who received $1.3 million out of the Dominican Republic, the 6-foot-1 Baez slashed .248/.357/.481 with 11 home runs, a 24.3 percent strikeout rate and a 12.9 percent walk rate in 58 games across complex ball and Single-A. His exit velocities were extreme for a 19-year-old, and he projects to be a classic power-over-hit right fielder with a plus arm. Baez isn't a great athlete, so he'll need to be a quality run producer to garner everyday playing time in a corner. He should spend the bulk of his age-20 season at High-A Asheville, where the cozy home park at high altitude should allow him to put up cartoonish numbers.

  • Astros' Luis Baez: Enjoying cozy home park

    Baez is slashing .291/.335/.473 with nine home runs and a 25 percent strikeout rate for High-A Asheville. Baez has a high ceiling as a power hitter, but it's worth noting he is slashing .232/.291/.326 away from the extreme hitter's park in Asheville (.952 home OPS). At 20 years old, he is younger than many High-A prospects, but not so young that he shouldn't be excelling at this level, especially given his favorable home conditions. He is probably a couple years away from reaching the majors.

  • Astros' Luis Baez: Climbing quickly through minors

    Baez is slashing .296/.426/.592 with seven home runs and a 20:22 K:BB in 27 games between the Florida Complex League and Carolina League The 19-year-old right fielder also had a strong showing last year in the Dominican Summer League with a .305/.351/.552 slash line, and this year he has shown an improved eye at the plate. Baez was old for his class when he signed just after his 18th birthday on Jan. 15, 2022, which is why his exploits in the DSL didn't stand out, but the fact he has quickly ascended to Single-A is a big mark in his favor. He has a chance to develop into a middle-of-the-order run producer and could continue to earn rapid promotions if his keen eye holds against more advanced pitching.
