Mexicans in the Minors - National League

These are players not highlighted in out top ten Mexican prospects and does not include Julio Arias, who made his professional debut for the Dodgers a couple days ago.  You can see the American League players under the country of Mexico, as well as the top ten prospects from Mexico.  Antonio was good enough to provide these names.

Juan Noriega (RHP) Los Angeles Dodgers - He is only listed at 5′7″ 145 pounds.  That usually does not spell success for a righthander in the major leagues.  After pitching in nine relief outings with a 1.64 ERA Juan was loaned out to the Mexican League.  In seven appearances there he is 1-1, 2.45.

Javier Solano (RHP) Los Angeles Dodgers - Signed by the Dodgers in 2008, he got his first and only start this year, giving up six runs in only three plus innings.  That is more than half of the homeruns he gave up while in the bullpen.  In 17 appearances Javier is 1-1, 4.13.  Take away the one start and his ERA drops to 2.18.

Joey Meneses (OF) Atlanta Braves - He hasn’t really shown the power to play left field, hitting his only homerun this year in his three years of minor league experience.   He is also 2 for 5 in stolen bases.  Without power or speed there does not appear to be a major league career on the horizon.

Marcus Camarena (RHP) New York Mets - He struggled in the pitcher friendly Florida State League with a 8.83 ERA in six appearances, three of them for starts.  His one appearance in the South Atlantic League he went four innings, giving up only one run.

Carlos Vazquez (LHP) New York Mets - The Mets signed him in 2008.  He is pitching in the South Atlantic League where he has made 4 relief appearances and has yet to give up a run.  He gave up his only three hits in his last three inning relief outing.  Carlos was signed by the Mets in July 2008.

Luis Cessa (RHP) New York Mets - Another pitcher from Mexico signed by the Mets in 2008.  Luis has eight starts with a 4.30 ERA.  He has had three poor starts where he has given up five or more runs in less than six innings.
