Number 19 on my prospect countdown is OF #TrentDeveaux...
.Deveaux was signed by the Angels in July of last year for $1.2 million from the Bahamas. Deveaux did not play last year since he signed in July...
.Deveaux has tools to dream on according to MLB.com. He is a plus plus runner that some would grade as an 80 on a 20-80 scale. He needs to add strength, but given his frame he should have no problem with that and grow into some power. He has a very good approach at the plate for his age and he knows the strike zone well. Once a shortstop, he moved to centerfield to utilize his speed which could make him and outstanding defender with an average arm. Deveaux has an extremely high ceiling with outstanding personality and plus makeup. The Angels hope he can one day reach his potential. Only 17, way to far for a big league comp. Has the potential to be an all star centerfielder if he reaches his potential.
