As you can see from the Tweet above, Deyvison is a power threat, through and through. His Raw Power is tied for the highest on this list, and Game Power is the highest on this list. He's been an extra-base hit machine in the minors, with 37.5% of his hits in 2021 being for extra bases. His isolated power in 2021 was an uncharacteristic .145, compared to his complex ISO of .280. 2022 has been different for him thus far, where he's slashing .263 / .282 / .474, good for an ISO of .211 in AA Amarillo at the time of writing. This is a bit of a slow start for him, but I'd expect him to pick up more rather quickly. Oh, and did I mention Deyvison is 18? Yeah, he's a super young player who's expected to arrive in his age 21 season! Definitely keep your eyes on him as he progresses.
