2020 Fantasy Outlook
Arozarena made his big-league debut at age 24, performing well in a small sample. He spent the bulk of the season in the high minors, hitting .344/.431/.571 with 15 homers and 17 steals in 92 games at the Double-A and Triple-A levels. All told, Arozarena had a 1.174 OPS in 84 PA against southpaws across the three levels (he had a 1.000 OPS in 96 PA vs. LHP in 2018), which was part of the appeal when the platoon-happy Rays acquired him from St. Louis in a multi-player offseason deal. His 12 home runs in 64 games at Triple-A were at least partially the product of the juiced ball at that level, but his sprint speed is in the 96th percentile. As one of their outfielders with minor-league options remaining, Arozarena is a long shot to break camp with the Rays. However, his ability to handle all three outfield spots and crush lefties could lead to opportunities at some point this summer. Read Past Outlooks

Arozarena, Jose Martinez and a Compensation A draft pick were traded from the Cardinals to the Rays in exchange for Matt Liberatore, Edgardo Rodriguez and a Compensation B pick Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Arozarena fared well in his first big-league action a season ago with St. Louis, going 6-for-20 at the dish with a homer, two RBI and two stolen bases in 19 games. The 24-year-old earned his promotion to the majors by putting together a .358/.435/.593 slash line at Triple-A Memphis, where he also hit 12 homers and drove in 38 runs across 64 contests. Arozarena is a possibility to make the 26-man roster to begin the 2020 campaign as a fourth outfielder, though if not he'll certainly be a strong candidate to come up later on in the season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Arozarena, who has been labeled as one of the top young Cuban prospects, inked a deal with the Cardinals in July of 2016. The 21-year-old's skill set is highlighted by his advanced plate discipline, plus contact skills and impressive speed on the basepaths. He operates more as a contact hitter, but has the tools to develop into a modest home run hitter in the future. During his last full season in the Cuban Serie Nacional, Arozarena batted .291/.412/.419 with 15 steals (21 attempts). He spent the 2015-2016 season playing in the Mexican Northern League, where he led all players in batting average and stolen bases. It is yet to be seen what position he will play for the Cardinals, as he has seen extended time at second base and the outfield in the past. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him start the season in full-season ball.
