Tyler Gentry

24-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Kansas City Royals AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Gentry had one of the most productive seasons of any minor-league hitter last season, slashing .326/.422/.542 with 21 home runs in 108 games at High-A and Double-A. Given that he was old for those levels and had a .447 BABIP and High-A and a .362 BABIP at Double-A, Gentry's overall numbers greatly oversell his prospect value. Scouts still don't see a plus hitter or plus power, but the right-handed corner outfielder could be an average hitter with above-average power, which might still be enough for him to get a chance to play everyday for this second-division team. He is not yet on the 40-man roster, so Kansas City could leave him at Triple-A for most of the season. That said, Gentry will be in his age-24 season, so if he dominates at the plate, he should get a chance sometime this summer. Read Past Outlooks

Enjoys breakout 2022

September 22, 2022
Gentry hit .326/.422/.542 with 21 homers, 10 steals, 86 RBI, 79 runs and a 60:105 BB:K over 108 games split between High-A Quad Cities and Double-A Northwest Arkansas this season.
The 23-year-old outfielder was a little old for High-A, so it made sense to take his .950 OPS there with a grain of salt, but he was even better against more age-appropriate competition in Double-A, putting up a .972 figure. A third-round pick out of the University of Alabama in 2020, Gentry followed up a decent but injury-abbreviated 2021 campaign with a breakout this season. A big, strong hitter who probably fits best in right field, Gentry may force his way into the Royals' outfield conversation as soon as the middle of next season. Sleep on him at your own risk.
