Cleveland Guardians: 7 prospects on 40-man roster who could make big impact in 2022
4 of 7
Arias has to eventually get his shot in the Guardians infield, right? The 21-year-old was a key piece in the Mike Clevinger trade with the Padres, and put up a very solid .284/.348/.454 line with 13 home runs, 29 doubles and 55 RBIs at Triple-A Columbus last season. Defensively, he’s a dynamo, and if he’s willing to start out at second base, there’s likely an immediate role for him on this team.
Barring any blockbuster trades that might occur once the work stoppage is over, Arias might have the best chance of anyone on this list to make an immediate impact.
