Notes on prospects and big leaguers playing abroad, including Brewers shortstop Yadiel Rivera and Indians catcher Carlos Santana.

Prospects

Yadiel Rivera, SS, Brewers (Criollos de Caguas, PRWL): 1-1. It was a slow night in the Caribbean with only two games between the three leagues, so coming in as a defensive replacement and getting a hit gets you on the list today. Plus, the Brewers system needs all the love it can get. Rivera is a plus defender at shortstop, which gives him a chance to emerge as a legitimate prospect if he can improve his bat even a little bit.

Notes from around the Caribbean Winter Leagues

As free agent pitcher Edwin Jackson closes in on a decision on which team gets to pay him about $13 million per season for the next four years, I'll remind you once again that Javier Vazquez, who decided not to play in 2012, is pitching in Puerto Rico and could announce his return before the season starts. The 36 year-old, who was still a very effective pitcher for the Marlins in 2011, has a 3.71 ERA, 3 walks, and 23 strikeouts (11 on Wednesday) over his first 17 innings for Ponce. Vazquez made about $100 million in his major league career, so I'm not saying the ridiculous amount of money being spent on free agent pitchers this offseason is going to sway him back to the majors. Actually, I am saying that. Since when is $100 million enough money for anyone?

A look at the best prospect in the Angels system and notes from around the day in the minors.

Kaleb Cowart, 3B, Angels (High-A Inland Empire): 3-for-4, 2 HR (3), 2 R, 3 RBI, BB, K.

There have been a lot of young breakouts in the minors this year, and it's almost like Cowart has gotten lost in the shuffle. Promoted to High-A in June just weeks after his 20th birthday, Cowart is hitting .290/.432/.551in his first 20 California League games, and the scouting reports nearly match the numbers.

Kevin took in the Midwest League All-Star game, and has some random thoughts on who did well, and who did not.

I spent my Tuesday in Geneva, Illinois for the 2012 Midwest League All-Star game. I took a lot of notes, but instead of cramming everything into an awkward narrative, here's what I saw:

How D.J. Mitchell might be the first Yankee pitcher to get called up this year and notes on 28 more prospects.

D.J. Mitchell, RHP, Yankees (Triple-A Empire State): 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K.

Mitchell is not the best prospect on the Yankees Triple-A staff, but don't be surprised if he's the first to the majors. Scouts think he could be effective as either a back-end starter or middle reliever, as while he's on the small side, he's ultra-athletic and features a fastball that has slightly above-average velocity and plenty of movement. He's not going to be a star, but he should have big league value, even on a championship-level roster.
