WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Espinal’s primary asset is raw power, which impressed observers at showcase events and in fall instructionals.  His speed is below-average and will keep him in an outfield corner, although he has a good arm.

2021
DSL:  155/347/276, 116 AB, 5 2B, 3 3B, 1 HR, 30 BB, 60 K, 2-2 SB

Espinal struggled badly in his first season.  He showed a lot of patience, but obviously had severe problems making contact.  Espinal played exclusively in right.

The Pirates brought Espinal to extended spring training in 2022, so he figures to be in the Gulf Coast League.
