NEW YORK — Raul Mondesi became the first player ever to make his major league

Napisany przez seestyle

NEW YORK Raul Mondesi became the first player <a href="">Jose Fernandez Jersey</a> ever to make his major league debut in the World Series on Friday night, pinch-hitting for the Royals in the fifth inning of Game 3.Stepping to the plate to replace Danny Duffy, who had relieved starter Yordano Ventura in the bottom of the fourth, Mondesi had the treat of facing Noah Syndergaards <a href="">Jarlin Garcia Jersey</a> heat as his first taste of the major leagues.MORE:|He took a 97 mph sinker for a ball, fouled off a fastball, took another fastball for a called strike, then swung <a href="">Trevor Richards Jersey</a> and mi sed at a 98 mph offering.Mondesi, whose father Raul was the 1994 National League Rookie of the Year and played 1,525 games in the majors without making it to the World Series, did not even play in Triple-A before stepping into the World Series spotlight. Mondesi hit .243/. <a href="">Justin Bour Jersey</a> 279/.372 for Double-A Northwest Arkansas this season.A highly-rated prospect, the 20-year-old Mondesi is on the World Series roster for his speed and as an emergency infielder. With <a href="">Starlin Castro Jersey</a> the Royals down by two runs in the middle innings and needing a pinch-hitter with the bases empty, it made sense for Ned Yost to give his <a href="">Brian Anderson Jersey</a> youngest player a chance to get into a game so that he might have the jitters shaken off if he is called upon in a more important situation later in the series.
