Pedro Leon

23-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Houston Astros AAA
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Leon landed a $4 million bonus from Houston on Jan. 15, 2021, and unlike most of the other top players from this international signing class, he turns 23 in May and could begin his career in the upper levels of the minors. He is a high-contact masher who already has at least plus power to the pull side. Leon has been an impatient hitter at times, so there could be a transition period as he balances making contact with waiting for a pitch he can drive. He hasn't played in competitive games in a while, but he most recently hit .383/.467/.789 with 15 home runs and seven steals (on 12 attempts) in 152 PA in the Cuban National Series in 2018-19. He was 10 years younger than the average player in the league that year. There are inconsistent reports on his run times, and at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, we shouldn't expect him to be a major threat on the bases. However, his bat should play at the highest level.
