On a recent episode of MLB.com’s Pipeline Podcast, international baseball writer Jesse Sanchez talked about Oscar Luis Colas, who is connected to the White Sox for next year’s signing period starting on Jan. 15.
Starting around the 8:30 mark, Sanchez says of Colas:
One thing I was informed of this year — he’s probably not going to pitch anymore. Maybe he’ll do some mop-up duty, maybe something for fun, but that’s not part of his package anymore. Obviously it’s a skill set he has, but he’s going to be a hitter. He’s going to be an outfielder. He’s actually supposed to play in Dominican Winter League with Estrellas Orientales, which is managed by Fernando Tatis Sr. in the Dominican Republic. So that’s something else to watch: Colas in the Dominican Republic, how he does in winter league.
Colas ranks fifth on MLB.com’s Top 50 international prospects board, I’m almost more intrigued by Erick Hernandez, a fellow left-handed outfielder who ranks 28th and is expected to sign with the White Sox, just because the White Sox aren’t in on many 16-year-olds from the Dominican Republic with such a high profile. Then again, he does turn 17 on signing day.
