2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on Houston's Mexican League pickups, Leonardo Heras and Japhet Amador?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
Heras has a chance; can square velocity. Amador is a fat DH only type that I think profiles best as a quad A type than a ML regular. I can see him going back to Mexico and crushing it for the Red Devils. (Jason Parks)
