It's time for another edition of our Baltimore Orioles minor league spotlight. This week, we focus on the O's farmhands that are playing winter ball in Mexico as part of the Mexican Pacific League.
By our count, there are four Orioles' prospects/farmhands currently playing in the Mexican Pacific League for the Mayos de Navojoa: OF Quincy Latimore, OF Glynn Davis, and pitchers Gene Escat and Eddie Gamboa.
First, it needs to be mentioned that Gamboa is currently a minor league free agent, so he is not technically an O's farmhand at the moment.
First, we will start with the duo of O’s outfielders in Latimore and Davis.
Latimore was one of the biggest contributors to the AA Bowie Baysox this season and helped lead them to their first ever Eastern League Championship. He has picked up right where he left off. Latimore is hitting .276 with five home runs, 28 RBI, 12 doubles and has scored 18 runs in 41 games played. In addition, Latimore has also walked 18 times to help him boast a .356 on base percentage. He currently leads the team with 156 at bats and has also committed just one error in the field.Read more... Join the Conversation...
