He stayed in Venezuela the next year and wasn't quite as good, then for some reason missed all of 2012. Between the decline and the disappearance, I have to assume there was an injury involved. Then he bounced back spectacularly in 2013. So, yes, I sure hope we see him stateside this year.
Ah, so maybe there was an injury and the Reds wanted to see if he was recovered and left him in the DSL. Could explain why he wasn't stateside yet.
No - I am not from State Farm!
