Notes 
 Terry Francona compared Arráez' bat-to-ball skill and mature plate approach to that of Tony Gwynn and Rod Carew. What else do you need to know?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If any player will go the Marcus Semien route this year, it's Willy Adames. Wander Franco is waiting in the wings.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Arraez came to the majors and did exactly what he has done throughout his minor-league career. He hit for a high average (.334), rarely struck out (7.9%), and offered nearly no power or speed. Even though his expected batting average was nearly 45 points lower than his actual average, he still should be a major contributor in the category. Is that worth the complete lack of production he offers in three other categories? All depends on your team construction.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Former top prospect finished strong in 2019
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Arraez is one of a kind. He does not strike out which is great, but he also does not hit the ball hard at all. He also has very meh speed. He is a one category contributor (average), albeit, a very succesful one.
