I just noticed that Contreras, a 20 year old outfielder from Venezuela, was moved from the Venezuelan Summer league to the Dominican Summer League team after tearing the cover off of the ball in Venezuela.
He hit .315 with 11 HR, 35 K, 30 BB in 241 ABs for a .924 OPS. He also had 25 SB with only 5 CS.
I'm assuming the Dominican league is a step up from the Venezuelan league, but how does the process of bringing these players over to the States work out?
Also, IF we were to get Contreras over to the states for next year, would he start in Billings or Dayton?
This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......
