Abraham Toro
23-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
2020 Fantasy Outlook
An assault on Double-A (153 wRC+) and Triple-A (179 wRC+) pitching combined with defensive competency at third base led to Toro making his big-league debut in August while the Astros were short-handed in the infield. He simplified his swing in 2018 while playing in the Arizona Fall League and those adjustments led to him being the best hitter in the Texas League after being a below-average hitter (89 wRC+) in 50 games there in 2018. A switch hitter who turned 23 this offseason, Toro excels at making contact and walked over 10% of the time at all three stops. His groundball rate was elite in the minors (under 40% at Double-A and Triple-A), but a 50.0 GB% contributed to his struggles in a small sample in the majors. He could be a plus hitter with above-average power, but is blocked at his three positions (third base, second base and designated hitter) to begin the season. Read Past Outlooks
Favored for 26th man
3BHouston Astros
March 19, 2020
Toro has the edge over Garrett Stubbs to become Houston's 26th man, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Toro brings more versatility to the final roster spot than Stubbs. He's a switch hitter that can play both corner infield spots, whereas Stubbs is primarily a catcher with limited outfield experience. Toro batted .125 (3-for-24) with one RBI over 24 spring at-bats.
