Gabriel Gonzalez

19-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Seattle Mariners A
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Gonzalez has been on a rampage since debuting in the Dominican Summer League in 2021, compiling a career .307/.393/.491 slash line with 14 home runs and 18 steals in 121 games across the DSL, Arizona Complex League and Single-A. He was young for all of those levels and turned 19 in January, and he could open the year with an aggressive assignment to High-A. A right fielder who projects for above-average to plus game power, Gonzalez has excellent bat-to-ball skills and probably swings a bit too much at this stage. Additionally, he probably uses the opposite field too much (40.6 Oppo% at Single-A, 38.1 Oppo% in the ACL), although it shows how in control he is at the dish. Gonzalez's 53.6 GB% at Single-A was too high, but he has been adept at getting the ball in the air at previous stops, so that could just be a small-sample blip. Gonzalez is built kind of like Wander Franco, and projects to be a bit more compact than typical power/speed outfielders, so the expectation should be that his bat will drive his value, not his legs.

Solid following promotion
OFSeattle Mariners  A
September 22, 2022
Gonzalez hit .286/.400/.389 with two home runs and four steals in 32 games to close out the season after being promoted to Single-A Modesto.
ANALYSIS
It's a bit of an empty batting line, as his pop didn't translate in this initial exposure to Single-A ball, but Gonzalez showed terrific on-base skills nonetheless. Just 18 years old, he's a long way from the big leagues, but he'll be able to accelerate his timeline if he can show more power next year. He'll presumably open 2023 back in Single-A.
