  1. You're missing the new guy. Drew Anderson, who just came over in the trade with the Reds

  2. Was waiting for him to arrive in camp.

  3. Has Jairo de la rosa been converted to Pitcher?

  4. He's listed under 'Pitchers' as: uniform #1, P, De La Rosa, Jairo, 6'1" 177lbs, B/T-R/R, DOB: 9/8/1985, hometown: La Victoria, DR.

  5. Anderson has been at camp for a week now...

  6. Five days actually, was wearing #19 last I saw.

  7. Does anybody have current info on Jairo De La Rosa? Where is he currently playing (city, team, etc)? At what level (A,AA)? I'm a friend of his from the Dominican Republic. thanks!

  8. Hi Aaron, he's at extended spring training, which ends on the 13th, so he's listed on Hudson Valley's roster, not sure why, has player above that level before. Click on their link in the sidebar and you can follow him.

  9. Doug- thanks for the response. I forgot to check back until now. Do you have another update? I can't seem to find him on Hudson Valley's roster anymore. thanks!

  10. Jairo De La Rosa is with Princeton currently, he's made 13 appearances there. You can view his milb.com player page here: http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?pos=P&sid=t455&t=p_pbp&pid=471858
