Domincan Republic native? Add 2+ years to his Nov. bday
Not if he signed as a 20 year old like Pineda did... the 16 year olds might be a different story

I see him as a backup 1b/3b/DH to hit vs lefties. Fulltime starter out of question if a team is healthy.
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.
