Minor League Update

International Winter League Games of December 3

by Jeff Moore


Prospect of the Day: Rymer Liriano, RF, Padres (Tigres del Licey, DWL): 1-4, R, HR. You may have forgotten about Liriano because he missed the entire 2013 season after having Tommy John surgery in Feburary. The time off was a big blow for the super-toolsy but raw Liriano, who needed all the minor-league at-bats he could get. TJ for position players is different than it is for pitchers, so there’s not too much concern about his plus arm coming back, but the missed at-bats could hurt his hit tool, which was his weak link anyway. He just joined the Tigres to help make up for lost time and should return to Double-A where he struggled in 2012.

  • Joey Terdoslavich, RF, Braves (Toros del Este, DWL): 1-3, 2 R, HR, BB, 2 K.- There’s the power the Braves need out of Terdoslavich is he’s going to make their roster this spring. His ability to play first base and left field will only take him so far, but some right-handed pop off the bench will get him the rest of the way.
  • Maikel Franco, 3B, Phillies (Gigantes del Cibao, DWL): 1-3, 2B, K. Remember when Franco was hitting well over .300 at the start of the DWL season? Yeah, me neither. A 3-for-36 skid will do that to one’s memory. His Tuesday double was just his second extra-base hit in his last 11 games.
  • Lisalverto Bonilla, RHP, Rangers (Leones del Escogido, DWL): 2
