WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Nadal was a lower-six-figure signing at the start of the 2018-19 signing period.  He’s slightly built at this stage.

2019
DSL:  294/394/397, 194 AB, 7 2B, 2 3B, 3 HR, 26 BB, 41 K, 10-16 SB

Nadal got off to a great start before slumping in July and then rebounding in August.  He hit for decent power despite his slight build.  He played about a third of his games in the field at short, the rest at second.  He had 16 errors at short, leading to a fielding percentage of .893, but that’s hardly unusual for a player so young.

Nadal was at fall instructionals and likely will be in the GCL in 2020.
