Prospect Profile: Everson Pereira

This young, toolsy outfielder was another big international signing for the Yankees, after being penalized for their spending in 2014-2015. They dropped $1.5 million on Everson Pereira in 2017, picking up one of the best available players. Coming from Venezuela, Pereira made his U.S. debut at only 17, playing 41 games for Pulaski in 2018. Overall, he is a very exciting young player whose trip through the minors I look forward to watching.

Name: Everson Pereira Birthdate: April 10, 2001 Position: Outfield Bats/Throws: R/R Height: 6’0” Weight: 191

Pereira’s all-around skills and his advanced instincts gave him a good start to his professional career last season. He had a slash line of .263/.322/.389. He had three homers, two triples and eight doubles, along with 26 RBIs and 21 runs scored. He struck out 60 times to only fifteen walks.

Pereira has the potential to be a leadoff hitter and should stick at center field. He has plus speed and has shown good instincts on the base paths and in the outfield. He has a strong arm, also contributing to his prospects of staying in center.

On offense, Pereira is expected to hit for average. He has a quick, short swing that garners some impressive bat speed. He is getting better at off speed pitches and hits fastballs well. He will need to work on his strikeouts, having struck out 32.8% of the time, while walking only 8.2% in his first season. He has earned recognition for his pitch recognition in the past, along with impressive hand-eye coordination. He isn’t projected to have a lot of power, but it should build as he matures.

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
