Dr B's 2014 Giants Top 50 Prospects: Dominican Dandies Part II

We'll wrap up the Dominican Dandies and the entire Top 50 Prospect series with 6 RHP's from last year's DSL squad.  I don't have any scouting reports on any of these guys.  Remember that age vs level is a big deal here so Raffi Vizcaino may be the best prospect of the bunch even if he did not have the most impressive numbers.

Eusebio Encarnacion, RHP.  5'11", 170 lbs.  DOB:  8/6/1994.
DSL:  5-1, 1.72, 68 IP, 12 BB, 49 K.

Jose Morel, RHP.  6'2", 190 lbs.  DOB:  9/6/1993.
6-0, 1.22, 59 IP, 6 BB, 55 K, 6 Saves.

Raffi Vizcaino, RHP.  6'1", 195 lbs.  DOB:  12/2/1995.
0-3, 3.80, 47.1 IP, 17 BB, 41 K.

Cesar Yanez, RHP.  6'5", 175 lbs.  DOB:  9/30/1994.
1-2, 2.23, 32.1 IP, 15 BB, 32 K.

Luis Castillo, RHP.  6''2", 170 lbs.  12/2/1992.
0-1, 0.64, 28.2 IP, 3 BB, 34 K, 20 Saves.

Michael Santos, RHP.  6'4", 170 lbs.  DOB:  5/29/1995.
1-2, 2.75, 19.2 IP, 6 BB, 18 K.  Santos has an intriguing combination of age and size.  His season came to an abrupt end after his 4'th start on June 18.  Gotta assume an injury, most likely UCL/TJ.


  1. Nice list, and excellent work all around!

    Luis Castillo apparently throws bullets, big big arm. We'll see what's what in AZ hopefully. Santos is the guy to watch, big long limbed skinny guy, I agree we have to assume TJ. And hopefully we'll see Jose Morel, big body who was part of the Dominican Prospect League.

    The Giants had a guy named Argenis Rodriguez almost signed, but the Rangers, those hyperactive dudes, swooped in on him. MLB's rules got Simon Mercedes sent back to the pool, the Red Sox signed him for 800K, double what the Giants had him for, and he had confessed to age/name games before the Giants signed! Foul I says! Foul!

    Giants have a good pipeline of DD arms with Mejia, Flores, Mella and Ysla. Can't wait to see the next one. Maybe its Deiyerbert Bolivar.

  2. garrett broshuis, a man of his word

    he is taking on the powers that be...and i wish him and the players the best of luck


  3. Simon Mercedes signed with his real name and age for the Giants , the MLB Office Suspended cause back in the days he was using another name Jeffry Tapia but he never signed with that name , instead that the Giants cancel that contract for 400K , after one year and tryouts in DR Red Sox notice that Mercedes was 92-95 with a square change ball of 82 and above average curveball of 72-74 and give to him 800K the problem here was the Giants never appeal the suspension , for me a big mistake
