The Dominican Winter League had their annual prospect draft last night and it was no surprise to see Fernando Tatis Jr. of the San Diego Padres organization go first overall to the Estrellas Orientales.
In total, 119 players were selected by the six Dominican teams with two of them coming from the New York Mets organization.
Right-handed reliever Adonis Uceta was taken in the eighth round by the Leones del Escogido.
Uceta, 23, went 6-0 this year with 14 saves, 1.51 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 59.2 combined innings between the Columbia Fireflies, St. Lucie Mets and the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
Right-handed starter Harol Gonzalez was drafted in the eleventh round by the Gigantes del Cibao.
Gonzalez, 22, went 9-9 with a 3.53 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 100 strikeouts in 137.2 combined innings between the Columbia Fireflies and the St. Lucie Mets this year.
