2023 Fantasy Outlook
Amador is an extremely advanced hitter for his age (19), showcasing an excellent combination of patience and in-zone contact. Most scouts agree he projects as a plus hitter. Beyond the hit tool, there are some undetermined aspects of his scouting report. Five of his 15 homers came in the extremely homer-friendly park in Stockton (a road park in the Cal League), and his 15.9 Hard% is quite poor for a top-100 prospect. He was 26-for-38 (68.4%) on stolen-base attempts, which is a pretty poor success rate for an above-average runner against Single-A batterymen. Another knock on Amador is that he will probably move from shortstop to second base. Sometimes players with this profile can turn into Vaughn Grissom, and sometimes they turn into utility players. The Rockies have favorable affiliate parks at High-A and Triple-A with a neutral Double-A park, so Amador will have chances to keep raising his perceived dynasty stock before reaching the majors.

Amador got a little dinged up during spring training and will be held back in extended camp before being assigned to High-A Spokane, Jonathan Mayo of reports.
Mayo didn't provide an official injury for Amador, but it sounds like it should be a short-term absence. Amador, who has one of the best hit tools in the minors, could split the year between Spokane and Double-A Hartford in his age-20 season.
