2017

Maitan came along at just the right time to be hyped beyond what some may see as reasonable expectations. Is he the next Miguel Cabrera? The best international prospect since Miguel Sano? That's what some evaluators hint at, and given the lack of a Bryce Harper or Stephen Strasburg level prospect in the 2016 draft, some prospect hounds may see Maitan as the best player available in dynasty league drafts this spring. He was the clear prize of the July 2 international signing period, and Atlanta seemed to have him wrapped up long before players could officially sign. A switch-hitting shortstop who figures to move to third base as his 6-foot-2 frame fills out, Maitan offers electric bat speed and a knack for putting barrel to ball that could lead to plus or even plus-plus grades on his hit and power tools in time. A brief run in the Gulf Coast League followed by an assignment to the Appalachian League is a conservative projection of how his age-17 season will play out.
