Name- ALVIS ENRIQUE OJEDA
Position- Relief Pitcher
Residence- Maracaibo, Ven.
DOB- Sept. 23, 1983
04 Club(s) - Vero Beach (High A), Columbus (Low A)
A middle reliever is probably one of the more unnoticed performers but in minor league ball where pitch counts often take the starter out relatively early, he can be vital. For a couple of seasons now, Ojeda has been demonstrating that he's one to watch carefully. A starter with Santo Domingo in 2002, he was 7-4, 1.79 but was sent to the bullpen the next season in the Gulf Coast League where he sparkled with a 4-0, 1.81 record.
This past season, he was briefly with Vero Beach and did well (0-0, 2.25) but was sent down a half-step to Columbus where once more he came in games relatively early and mostly dominated (8-2, 3.59). Not overly impressive physically, he depends upon a fast ball that bores in to right-handed hitters and a sharp curve with allowed him to strike out 86 batters in 85 innings at Columbus.
