Thrylos, I asked this in the other thread, too but do you know why he wasn't signed until he was 20 (or almost 20)? Is there a Dominican league that he was playing in?

I am still working to find more details. I know that he signed for just a $10,000 bonus last year

See ya Danny. I wonder if the Sox use him as a backup 1B/3B, essentially Youk-very-lite. I know he was sent to Pawtucket, but the Sox roster almost certainly will get quite a changeover in the next three weeks in a row.

On Pineda, most of us would assume that 21 is too old for GCL & still old for ELIZ....BUT 21 yr olds do play there & a promotion there would be good for him. What more can he do in GCL??
WHOM would you promote & to where out of the current ELIZ OF??
Personally, it would be Romy Jimmenez to Beloit for me.
Rene Tosoni was the last player I remember goin straight from ELIZ to Ft Myers & skipping Low A (played 2 end of season gms there). He was 20 in ELIZ & I think as a 20 yr old college guy, Adam Walker 'could' jump over a league with a strong finish, giving 2012 Beloit.....Buxton, Jimmenez, Pineda & Keplar in the OF.
