Luis Silverio Scouting Report & Game Video
Dates Observed: May 20-24, 2018
Team/Organization: Visalia Rawhide (Arizona Diamondbacks)
League/Level: California League (High-A)
Scouting Notes: Long and lean with quick-twitch athleticism at the plate and in the field. Great runner, both defensively and on the bases; had him 4.09 up the line from the RHH box, 4.47 on the turn at first in my look here; legitimate 70-grade speed there with exceptional ability to track down balls off the bat in the outfield. Covers a ton of ground on D; arm strength OK, but speed by far his best tool, and ought to give him a shot to provide value even at the end of the bench should he land there … Raw, less-refined project at the plate; quick-twitch athleticism with the bat, too, with above-average bat speed and some ability to create leverage to his pull side, though Silverio gets hampered by over-aggressive tendencies once in the box. Even with good bat speed, his swing can get long, and he’ll get too pull happy even when down in the count and being pitched away. Looking to hack and wants to get out of the box in a hurry; needs to take pitches and work deeper counts/be more discerning, or else higher levels will prove too difficult an adjustment. Over his first 193 at-bats (54 games) in 2018, Luis Silverio walked only seven times to go along with 68 strikeouts at two levels; not good enough for a speedster who should be getting on base at a better clip … Athleticism and broad tool package give Silverio a 50 FV ceiling in an everyday outfielder role moving forward, but I don’t think he’s going to hit enough to make that happen; for me, Luis Silverio should wind up a 40 FV bench bat who can provide value as a pinch runner/defensive replacement.
