The Outfield Fly Ruling
Reports have suggested Centeno has a strong arm. DSL pitchers report Centeno doesn’t have a strong bat. (-B. Blackwell, 4/17)
The OFR Scouting Report
Hit Tool – 20
It’s too early to really tell, but .227/.312/.265 over your first couple hundred plate appearances isn’t great.
Power – 30 ↑
Listen, I won’t pretend to know Centeno’s power for real, but he’s a squatty catcher, so I have to imagine there’s some power potential in there.
Baserunning – 45
(This is based on nothing but the fact that he’s a 5-9 catcher)
Defense – 40
20-80 scale, where 20 will prevent you from reaching the bigs, 30 is terrible, 40 is below average, 50 is MLB average, 60 is plus, 70 is plus-plus, and 80 is HOF-level. The OFR Scouting Report is based mostly on statistical forecasting models such as ZiPs, PECOTA, etc. Arrows indicate projected room for growth or decline, with each representing a 5 point movement on the 20-80 scale.
