2024 Fantasy Outlook
A better real-life prospect than a fantasy one, Arroyo should be at least an above-average defender at shortstop, and he should hit enough to stay in the lineup for some team, although things are crowded in Cincinnati. The 20-year-old switch hitter slashed .252/.324/.433 with 13 home runs and 29 steals in 123 games, primarily at High-A. He got a brief taste of Double-A to close 2023. Arroyo could potentially turn into an Andres Gimenez type of fantasy contributor, but that's his ceiling. He won't turn 21 until August, and it's possible he spends almost the whole season at Double-A. There's a chance he could tap into 20-homer power if he adds some muscle to his slender 6-foot frame, but his plus speed and potential for everyday playing time are the main drivers of his dynasty appeal.

Shoulder
March 20, 2024
Arroyo underwent surgery to repair his torn left labrum Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Arroyo hurt his shoulder diving back to first base during a Cactus League game last week, and his injury will ultimately cost him the entire 2024 campaign. The 20-year-old prospect went 6-for-17 with three RBI during spring training and was expected to begin the season with Double-A Chattanooga, but he will instead spend the year recovering from surgery and aim to return in 2025.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Arroyo's dynasty value peaked last season right when the Mariners cashed him out in the Luis Castillo trade with the Reds. The switch-hitting shortstop slashed .316/.385/.514 with 13 home runs, 21 steals and a 22.0 K% in his first 87 games at Single-A - numbers that are even more impressive when considering Arroyo was the second-youngest qualified hitter at that level. However, he went on to hit .227 with one home run and a 28.4 K% in 27 games at Single-A with the Reds. His season line of .296/.368/.488 is still excellent, given his age and level, and Arroyo's 32.1 Hard% was a fantastic mark for a quick-twitch shortstop. Arroyo has the type of all-around skill set that could translate to five-category fantasy production, and it's always notable when an 18-year-old dominates at Single-A. He could re-establish himself as a top-50 dynasty prospect if he has success at High-A with his new organization.
