I've been watching the DSL for a number of years and I've noticed that talent level varies from month to month and year to year. Often you will see better talent (competition) early in their season until some of the better players get promoted to Rookie Ball or Short Season in the states. Other years some of the best Dominican talent signed is advanced enough to come right to the states so the talent level in the DSL is low across the board.
Essentially, what I'm saying is that DSL stats are subjective, at best; and that its primary purpose is as a development league. Veloz hit less than .230 there last year but was hitting better in the GCL until he was suspended.

Several of the players were signed this past offseason after DD took over, such as Moreno from Brazil and Marrugo from Colombia. The guy with the Italian sounding name is actually from Guatemala. I started following the box scores to keep up with what the new signings did.
