I just do not know the foundation for success with international ranks. I am more on the boat in finding guys from other parts of the world, but to me the DR is still the wild, wild west. Even with the new sanctions, there are always questions about age, background, legality, etc...
Schoop is from Curacao, Cleofa is from the Antillies, Roderick Bernadina
is from Curacao, Eduardo Rodriguez
is from Valencia Venezula. Veloz and Juan Guzman
are the only two promising players from the Dominican Rep.
The Orioles are making in roads, but maybe last season was the start of something in trust. If they took a chance on Veloz, maybe they start to take bigger risks with higher profile players from the Dominican. I would like to see a better effort in Venezula as well.
