Total professional at-bats: .



A fourth round high school draft pick and late sign for the Astros, Rio Ruiz took only 152 at-bats in rookie ball last year, but that was enough to impress scouts. He's uniformly rated as a plus defensive third baseman, but reviews are mixed on the quality of his bat. He shows a quick, smooth swing and ability to reach all fields, but also a propensity to chase bad pitches and strike out a very great deal. We really need to see a full season of minor league ball before we know what we have, here.
