Emilio Guerrero 23-yrs-old

A 2011 international free-agent signing, Emilio spent the fall playing in the Arizona Fall League for the Salt River Rafters. He played 19 games and hit .254 with some good games. Guerrero is Rule V eligible.

Guerrero played 80 games between Double-A and Advanced-A Dunedin, with 46 games at 3rd. Throughout his career, Emilio has split time between SS and 3rd, but has started to play some CF in recent years.

Guerrero committed 7 errors in 344.2 innings, putting up .243 RangeFactor and .941Fld% at 3rd. With the bat, he produced above average in Dunedin with .317 wOBA and 103 wRC+, but looked over matched in Double-A with an awful .272 wOBA and 69 wRC+.

Overall, the 6’4″ native of Dominican Republic hit .235/.278/.343 with .621 OPS, 16 doubles, 3 triples, 3HR, 21 RBI,  5.5BB%, 23.1K%, and .304 BABIP.

Emilio has a solid build, 6’4″ 190lbs to hit for power; unfortunately, he lacks the strike zone control to use his frame effectively. He swings at bad pitches too often and hit below .200 when behind in the count which occurred 69 times, compared to being ahead of the count 44 times in 289 at-bats.
