WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
The Pirates signed Armas as an outfielder with good hitting ability who has a chance to develop power.  His speed is about average, so he could end up in an outfield corner.  His arm is good.

2021
DSL:  231/378/265, 147 AB, 3 2B, 1 3B, 34 BB, 52 K, 7-12 SB

Armas hit respectably in his first season, although he didn’t show much power.  He drew a lot of walks, but struggled to make contact.  He played mostly in center.

2022
DSL:  157/364/222, 108 AB, 5 2B, 1 3B, 29 BB, 46 K, 7-8 SB

The Pirates sent Armas back to the DSL and he did very little at the plate other than draw lots more walks.  He didn’t start any games in center, which probably shows some loss of prospect status.

Armas should be in the Florida Complex League in 2023.
