 Biographical Information
Pedro Báez has twice been picked for the Futures Game.
Báez was signed by Los Angeles Dodgers scout Elvio Jimenez for $200,000 in 2007. He debuted that year in pro ball, hitting .274/.341/.408 for the GCL Dodgers. He had 39 RBI in 53 games, the second-highest RBI total in the Gulf Coast League after Alfredo Silverio. Pedro was rated the league's #6 prospect by Baseball America, trailing only Michael Burgess, Jesus Montero, Ben Revere, Che-Hsuan Lin and John Tolisano.
The 20-year-old split 2008 between the Great Lakes Loons (.178/.244/.259 in 59 G) and the Ogden Raptors (.267/.317/.502, 12 HR, 50 RBI in 61 G). He was 6th in the Pioneer League in RBI and tied for 6th in homers. He also led in putouts (47), assists (129), errors (20) and double plays (16) at third base. Baseball America ranked him as the loop's 11th-best prospect, right behind teammate Kyle Russell.
In 2009, Báez hit .286/.326/.445 for the Inland Empire 66ers, missing the last couple months due to left knee surgery. He played for the World team in the 2009 Futures Game. Pinch-hitting for Luis Durango in the 7th, he grounded out against Trevor Reckling. He stayed in the game at first, replacing Alex Liddi.
