Wendell Rijo: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Rijo, an international free agent signed in 2012, spent most of the 2013 season with Boston's team in the Gulf Coast League before a brief stint with Short Season Lowell. Only 17 at the time, Rijo displayed good contact skills and held his own against the competition, performing better as the season progressed. More impressive is that Rijo was recovering from ACL surgery in 2012 and wore a bulky knee brace for much of the season. Further removed from the surgery, Rijo has regained his speed. He has the skills to be a plus defender, though he can get lazy in the field. Now 18, he may be pushed to a full-season assignment at Low-A Greenville.
