WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Vega signed out of Colombia at age 18. He throws 90-91 with a curve.
Vega started in nine games and relieved in six, showing good control but not missing many bats. He held left-handed hitters to a .614 OPS. Vega struggled increasingly as the season went on; his monthly opponents’ OPS from June to August was .505, .659 and .825.
Vega filled in briefly at Bristol and West Virginia early in the season, then pitched out of the bullpen in the GCL. He had a rough time there, with opponents batting .321 against him.
Vega likely will be in the GCL or at Bristol in 2020.
