Matt Duran, Jorge Posada, Pedro Feliciano, and Kruml are among the players on Puerto Rican League rosters. That doesn’t necessarily mean they will play though, and in Feliciano’s case, we’re certain he’s not going to play because he’s recovering from September shoulder surgery.

  • Paul from Boston

    Nice job from Noesi. Why was he in the pen all season?

    • Now Batting

      Who was he going to replace?

  • Soriano Is A Liar

    Just curious, why would posada be on a roster? Is that just some sort of technicality, since I assume as a non-prospect he isn’t going to play (same for Feliciano, but I was guessing maybe that had something to do with his rehab?)?

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      The PRL team drafted Posada in their draft before the season, the Yankees didn’t put him there.

  • Richard Leo

    anyone knows anything about Mustelier? He is a little old,but has a great year and can handle several positions.Is there any scouting report?

  • Realist

    Neosi definitely the 6th starter this upcoming season. Hope he has the same Nova success
