The Outfield Fly Ruling

Signed in January of 2016 from the JDB Baseball Academy in the Dominican Republic. Abreu got very little ink in ’16, his professional debut, but his stats indicate a potentially electric but wild arm (31 innings, 31 K’s, 27 BBs). Unfortunately, his development could stall for a bit, as he was suspended in August for 72 games after testing positive for Stanozolol, a banned substance. If you squint hard enough, you can see a potentially useful reliever down the road. (- B. Blackwell, ’16-’17 offseason)
