Scouting Report: Young Dominican who was one of the top prospects available in the 2013 international free agent class. Very solid build with a large lower half, reminiscent of Adrian Beltre. On offense, Devers has outstanding bat speed and an advanced approach for his age. Solid swing mechanics. He currently has above-average power, with plus-to-better power potential. Ball pops off his bat. Makes decent contact, but has yet to be really tested against high velocities and advanced off-speed stuff. Below-average speed.Confident at the plate, carries himself with a lot of swagger. Defense is adequate for his age, might be able to stick at the position. Decent arm, makes routine plays. Additional growth may diminish his lateral quickness, in which case he's a candidate for first base or left field.
