Good summary of the talent at G'ville. If I may add a few others that caught my eye.

Luis Alvarez (C)19 year old catcher from Ven. Season ended early due to knee injury while backing up first. Hit .271 in 48 AB.

Juri Perez (RHP) just turned 19 and also left his last start with an arm injury. Since being moved from the pen into the rotation, he was 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA, needs to keep the ball down better but 60 Ks in 51 2/3 IP isn't shabby.
