Dominguez turned on the power in the second half after shaking off the aftereffects of mono. The third baseman slugged .513 after the All-Star break, hitting 16 homers and driving in 63 runs in 265 at-bats.
Scouting report: Outstanding defensively, Dominguez also has a polished and advanced approach at the plate. He has plenty of ceiling and should hit for average and power. He's extremely coachable and has worked hard on establishing a better hitting base.
Upside potential: All-Star-caliber third baseman who is a run-producer and Gold Glover; a Scott Rolen type.
They said it: "He's a complete player, other than not running. He's a baseball player who's very far along. He's been in the baseball eye for a long time. There's no question his bat was underrated. He does everything well and he's just a real smart player. He understands the game well." -- Jim Fleming, Marlins VP of Player Development and Scouting
