WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Jauregui was the first position player whom the Pirates signed out of Cuba in over a decade.  He has good speed and a plus arm, and could be a strong defender, more likely in a corner than in center.    He’s a line-drive hitter at this point, but has some power potential.  Originally a switch-hitter, Jauregui was better batting left-handed and so decided to stay that way.
