GUSTAVO ARMAS, CENTER FIELDER
|Born: December 12, 2003
Signed: Int’l Free Agent, 2021, Pittsburgh Pirates
How Acquired: International Free Agent
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.
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.
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.
