I thought about creating a write-up on Rondon after his time in the DSL, but didn't think he warranted it after hitting just .171 there. He did show good patience though and was singled out by Eddie Romero Jr as a guy to watch. Rondon's defensive potential apparently is closer to being realized than his hitting, but so far in the DSL he is exhibiting both.

Though he has yet to walk a single time after drawing 43 free passes in the DSL, Rondon has hit .308/.308/.500, clubbing 8 XBHs so far this ear in just 52 PAs. He's played exclusively at SS to date.

The names of some of these kids in the Caribbean are just awesome. I think that's half the reason I like following them!

Don't let that stop you. If Drew Hedman gets a thread, anyone can.

Through 125 PAs, Rondon is now hitting .258/.286/.400. The slugging figure is encouraging, but the complete lack of walks is quite disturbing. A 5/28 BB/K ratio won't get you very far. After a good start out of the gate in June, Rondon struggled to a line of .241/.282/.354 in July. He is playing pretty much every day though at SS, and has good tools there, so I'm sure he'll get a continued look in 2013 somewhere (perhaps repeating in the GCL, given he's only 18).

Rondon is now down to .230/.271/.354 through 187 PAs. Looks like the hot start was just that - merely a hot start.

Despite just middling success at the plate last year, even for a SS, Rondon is now up in Lowell and showing some flashes of usefulness.  He's learning to take a walk a bit more often than last year and his average is back up to a more respectable .275.  Hopefully he continues to progress on that side, because he looks like he's more than capable of sticking at SS defensively.  We've got tons of org depth at SS, but a bit more never hurts!

Rondon's career as a Red Sox minor league comes to an end, as he is packaged with three other players to acquire Jake Peavy.  Best of luck to the only Cleuluis the Sox are ever likely to have in their system.
