 Luis Domoromo stats
*Sucess Rate=have they been moderatley sucessful.
**None of these players have debutted in MLB since they are not ready yet.
***I would not expect these players in MLB at all ever.
****They could potentially bust.
Looking at all this data, we have been pretty sucessful with about 50% of our signees looking like solid prospects. Rymer Liriano is for sure the best of the bunch, who knows with Belen.
Here is a nice profile on Belèn for you:
Belèn is a power hitting 3B out of the Dominican Republic. He was the number 8 international prospect out of the world. Albert Pujols started out as a 3B, I wonder...
-The Padres signed RHP Corey Kimber who was drafted in the 25th round to a 120k deal, 20k over slot.
-We also signed RHP's Andrew Lockett (4th) and Walker Weikel (1A) to over slot deals.
-The Padres have one four games in a row and are 13 GB for the wild card. Remember there are two! Who knows if we can get some SP back?
-Huston Street was selected to the all star game.
-Jeremy Hermida is rehabbing in AZL.
-Cole Hamels and Zach Greinke to be traded? Pirates interested?? I would not have expected this.
-Latos/Volquez match up tomorrow! Should be fun, the fact is Volquez alone has out performed Latos, and Grandal and Alonso have just been bonuses! We came out well in that deal!
