2023 Player Outlook
Ruiz was acquired in the three-team trade between the Athletics, Braves, and Brewers in the offseason and he'll turn 24 right around the time pitchers and catchers start reporting to camp. If there's one thing he greatly excels at, it's speed. Over his last five seasons in the minor leagues, he stole 181 bases. He'll need to vastly improve his plate discipline at the big league level to get on base and showcase that speed. Most projections have him stealing between 20-25 bases in 2023, but Steamer did go bold with a 30-steal projection.
