WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Zapata has the defensive ability to stay at short.  He’s been adding bulk to his frame and hopefully will continue to get stronger.

2021
DSL:  186/342/196, 97 AB, 1 2B, 22 BB, 21 K, 3-7 SB

Zapata showed very good strike zone judgment, but otherwise didn’t hit much, with no power.  He split his time between short and third, with a little time at second.

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