Baseball America: Major League Baseball 40-Man Roster Additions Ahead Of Roster Deadline ($)

Geoff Pontes with short write-up of every player added to a 40-Man.

Juan Brito, 2B: The infielder was acquired by the Guardians from the Rockies in exchange for Nolan Jones in the hours leading up to the deadline. Brito fits an archetype the Guardians have had success with in recent years—a switch-hitter with advanced plate discipline and strong bat-to-ball skills. This style of player is so synonymous with the Guardians that a longtime scout texted me in the aftermath of the trade saying “Brito was always a Guardians prospect, they just needed to make it official.” In this way Brito fits the Guardians style of play—a high-contact hitter with developed skills as a hitter looking to add impact as he ages. If Brito is able to grow into more strength and power he could develop into an above-average hitter in the major leagues at peak.
