I had to double check to make sure Rod Barajas wasn’t catching that game for the Yanks. We have all stared at thousands of boxes in our lives and this one stood out right away because of the SB section and how massive it was. Not a confidence building day for the Yankees catcher.

Sometimes a few kids in the DSL will end up in America after the Short Season leagues start if they are showing they are ready. It takes a lot of prospects 2-3 years to make it over to the states…like any minor leagues most never make it…but some players come to America right away. The Bucs had 2 17 year olds Ramirez and Escobar in the GCL last year and Luis Heredia was here at 15 or 16. A lot of things factor into this: Talent of the player, are they physically ready, and are they ready to handle the rigors of speaking English and living in another culture at a young age.

So, in an ideal scenario could all these players mentioned get promoted to West Virginia, Bradenton, Altoona, Indianapolis and probably even Pittsburgh one day ?

I really like the stats of this Pablo Reyes kid at SS.
