Ramon Nivar - OF - Rangers
Ramon Nivar had two hits yesterday to raise his Dominican Winter League average to .353.
Nivar looked like a borderline choice to make the Rangers' 40-man roster after a disappointing season, but he was kept over prospects like Drew Meyer and Marshall McDougall. Though he Rangers are no longer convinced he's a future regular, he'll probably be useful as a utilityman. Nov. 22 - 2:27 pm et
What's the deal??? Kid hit close to .400 last year in winter ball (I believe he led the league, not sure though). Hitting .353 this year in winter ball to lead the league. Has great speed and would play OF and make a good, solid leadoff hitter.
Seems he's getting overlooked in my eyes.
