Cuban import Hector Olivera, who went 2 for 4 (while being robbed of a third hit) in a nationally televised game Thursday at Double-A Tulsa, has been promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

In six games with the Drillers, the 30-year-old Olivera went 7 for 22 with a grand slam and three walks, for an .855 OPS. He also had a slick defensive play at third base in Thursday’s game, charging a ball hit down the line.

The transaction puts Olivera alongside the Dodgers’ top young prospect, Corey Seager, who went 2 for 4 with a double Thursday in Oklahoma City’s 3-1 victory over Barry Zito and Nashville. Seager now has a .356 on-base percentage and .419 slugging percentage in Triple-A, despite playing home games in the most run-depressing environment in the Pacific Coast League.

  1. Hi Jon,
    Any way you can give us an update on Brandon Beachy? I am very hopeful that he will be pitching for us soon, and if he can get back his form from a few yeas ago, he would be a tremendous #3……..and we wouldn’t need to make a big trade for another starter.
    We have not heard much, except he may start a rehab, also that he has been trying out different delivery styles, and that scares me a bit, unless it’s a good thing….:-)

      Not much to say until he starts the rehab assignment.
