#31 Prospect - Luis Noel

#31 Prospect - Luis Noel

After making a name for himself in 2008, visa issues kept Luis Noel in the Dominican Republic for all of 2009, limiting him to the Dominican Summer League. He returned to the U.S. in 2010 where he posted some impressive numbers at Delmarva, earning him a mid-season promotion to Frederick. His play tailed off a bit with the Keys, but he still struck out batters at a good clip and posted solid ground ball numbers.

Like to see the walks per 9 improve. Glad to see him make a comeback last season after the visa issue. I thnk that guys like him and Bernardo are proof why we need to get more involved in signing young players from the Dominican. Just 22 and already has so many years under his belt. You hit on one or two of these and you've got kids who can be at AAA by 22. Long reliever would seem to be the right place for him.

Now that Bluefield's gone they won't be able to take as many chances though, but still a good point. Would love to see more Schoops and Leonoras.
