WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Bastardo is a big guy with good bat speed and a power-first profile. He signed as an outfielder, but by 2021 appeared to have shifted to first base.
Bastardo showed some power in his debut. He didn’t hit for average, but his plate discipline was fine. He played exclusively in right.
The pandemic wiped out most players’ season.
Bastardo will be in the Florida Complex League in 2021.
