Dominican Summer League

Recommended Posts

Two Dominican teams. Both over .500 record after 15 games.  Multiple 17 yo players doing decently and even one 16 yo.  All of that is unprecedented to the best of my knowledge in Orioles history.  We are turning a corner.  I believe good things are ahead.

BOX SCORE

17-year-old Hector Lopez now has a 0.38 ERA and 0.85 WHIP with 20/6 K/BB ratio over 23 and 2/3rds innings. Pretty impressive numbers, especially at 17.

He is officially on my radar screen as of today.    K rate could be a little higher, but that’s very promising.  

Lopez was signed 3 weeks after Elias arrived, and before Koby Perez was here.    I’d love to know if Elias prompted his signing, or merely approved something that was in the works before he arrived.

I originally had a question that I think Elias answered in a recent interview but I'll still ask it:

The guys we will sign on July 2nd  are not currently on a DSL team but we are anticipating all of them to be signed and then immediately placed on a DSL team? Do we have enough open roster spots for these guys? Will the July 2nd signing group push some of the top preformers currently on DSL teams to the GCL team?

It appears that many of the highly ranked guys from last year did not play in the DSL last year. They started in the Arizona Fall League at the earliest, and many joined DSL teams this year. Names I looked at were the top 11 here that actually signed during the last season http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2018?list=int

Players that sign during the year they turn 16 are not allowed to play in the league during that year and sign deals starting the next year.

This is from MiLB.com concerning roster sizes:

Rookie: Venezuelan Summer, Dominican Summer - 35 active. No player on the Active List may have four or more years of prior Minor League Service. No Draft-eligible player from the U.S. or Canada (not including players from Puerto Rico) may participate in the DSL or VSL.

This is the answer. Also I might have been confused, but Arizona Fall League is only for A and above. Mostly AA and AAA

The first you might see of the top players in this J2 class would be reports/video out of instructs. There are Dominican instructs and it's possible the top players will get the call for instructs in Sarasota.
