Prospects

  • Eddie Rosario, CF, Twins (Puerto Rico): 1-3, R, HR, BB. Rosario ha been a fixture in the MLU this winter, appearing frequently in both the good and bad portions of our daily list. His time in the Caribbean has been largely disastrous, but just when we think he’s down, he pops another home run, much like he did on Tuesday night for his first Caribbean Series hit. It brings his average to .100, but it did give his team a 1-0 lead that they would ultimately relinquish.
  • Vicyohandrys Odelin, RHP, Cuba (Cuba): 9 IP, 2 H, R, 3 BB, 5 K. Odelin isn’t a name you’re going to need to know as an eventual Cuban defector to make a big splash in America, especially give that he turns 34 this month, but a two-hit shutout in the Caribbean Series can’t go without mention.
  • Elvis Araujo, LHP, Indians (Venezuela): 2 IP, K. Araujo has been used in relief this winter but not situationally. He has shown better control in the short stints than he has in minor-league ball, but he still doesn’t miss bats the way you’d hope a pitcher his size (6-foot-6) would.

Blast from the Past

  • Joel Pineiro, RHP, Free Agent (Puerto Rico): 6 2/3 IP, 7 H, 2 R (0 ER), K. Pineiro hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2011 and has been out of affiliated ball since 2012, but that wasn’t stopping the former 16-game winner on Tuesday night. His defense did, however, making three errors behind him that resulted in two unearned runs and saddled him with the loss.
