Signed as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2012. Canelo displayed fluidity and consistency in all phases of the game during my viewing. The glove is his carrying tool, but the bat has enough juice to play as an everyday regular in the majors. The risk is high due to him being at the Low-A level.
