Minor League Update

Caribbean Series Game of February 6

by Jeff Moore


We’re down to the semifinals of the Caribbean Series, which means only one game per night. Thursday night’s game involved the Dominican Republic falling to a not-exactly-prospect-laden Mexican team. For the MLU, that means you’re getting an update on every borderline prospect in action, no matter how many times you’ve heard their names in the past two months. We’ve made it through the whole winter together. Don’t jump off the ship now.

The Good

  • Zelous Wheeler, 3B, Yankees (Mexico): 0-2, 2 BB, K. Wheeler’s prospect days are behind him, but he’ll enter spring training coming off of a strong winter, and the Yankees’ infield situation isn’t exactly carved in stone.
  • Sebastian Valle, C, Phillies (Mexico): 1-3, R, BB, K. After a rough minor-league season, Valle hit .304 this winter and was the hero on Thursday with a walk-off bloop single to win it. He’ll return to the Phillies this spring with a lot to prove, but the real news here has to be that he drew a walk.

The Bad

  • Leury Garcia, 3B, White Sox (D.R.): 0-3, R, K. Not naturally a third baseman, but he played there on Thursday. It’s that versatility that will keep Garcia in the majors.
  • Francisco Peguero, CF, Orioles (D.R.): 0-3. It was a strong winter for Peguero, who will look to impress a new organization this spring.
