Abreu opened some eyes this year as a tall, rangy shortstop. He has the potential to hit for power as demonstrated by his performance in the Fall Instructional League (FIL) where he showed power to all fields and a quick bat that allowed him to drive the ball to his pull side when FIL pitchers tried to bust him inside. He may eventually move off shortstop as he fills out and play only third base. Abreu most likely remains in extended spring training and plays next year with the rookie level team in the Gulf Coast League.
