Is there a more baller way to slug your first big-league home run? I mean, De La Cruz nearly left Great American Ball Park completely. And, this kid is just 21 years old. He’s in the majors at such a young age because he’s been flashing elite power for a while now.

He slugged one in 43 games in 2019 during the Dominican Summer League. After not playing at all in 2020 because of the pandemic, De La Cruz hit eight in 61 games as a 19-year-old between Rookie Ball and Single-A. But then last season, the left-handed slugger split his time between High-A and Double-A, leading to 28 homers, 86 RBI, and a .945 OPS.

It was more of the same to start 2023 in Triple-A. Despite spending just 186 plate appearances at that level and being nearly six years younger than the league-average age, De La Cruz slashed .298/.398/.633. This line was powered by 26 extra-base hits (11 doubles, three triples, 12 homers), 36 RBI, 38 runs scored, and 11 steals.
