2023 Fantasy Outlook
For the first time as a pro, Amaya flashed a bit of power at Double-A in 2021, swatting 12 homers across 476 plate appearances. It was encouraging to see him follow that up with 17 long balls over 567 plate appearances between Double-A and Triple-A last season, boosting his big-league outlook considerably. The 24-year-old is already more than capable with the glove, as he possesses quick hands and a strong, accurate arm that make him arguably the best defensive infield prospect in the system. Despite the recent gains, it's unlikely that Amaya will ever be more than an average power hitter, and he isn't projected to be a big base stealer in the majors. He could debut in 2023, and his chance to evolve long-term into an everyday player rather than be relegated to a utility role will likely hinge on how well he can sustain the power gains without too heavily sacrificing the consistent-contact approach that kept him afloat during his early seasons in the minors.
