ABSF-MEX AAA News: Draft Pool Revealed
Friday, July 2nd, 2027
The 2027 amateur draft pool was published today with barely a mention on BNN. But then, fans rarely get drawn into amateur drafts. The players are not known commodities and they're not tangible, recognizable names. They might be five years down the road, but casual fans don't get sucked in by "might be," they get excited about what is happening in the here and now. Over the next 30 days, scouts will assess their possibilities, run mock drafts and formulate their plans.
To help them, Alianza Beisbol Al Sur de la Frontera has posted an interactive draft section on its Transactions page, which will be available for 30 days before draft day.
The top players available (in no particular order) seem to be:
1. Javier Márquez, 16 year-old LHP out of college.
2. José Martínez, 16 year-old LHP out of college.
3. Jesús Díaz, 16 year-old C out of college.
4. António Morín, 16 year-old CF out of high-school.
5. José Guerra, 16 year-old SS out of high-school.
6. Ramón Días, 16 year-old RHP out of high-school.
7. Domingo Flores, 16 year-old 3B out of college.
8. Javier Rea, 16 year-old CF out of college.
9. Mario Ortega, 16 year-old RF out of college.
10. Rafael Peña, 15 year-old CF out of college.
You can find the draft pool in the league transactions screen (league menu).
Skipper Flores Let Go by Guadalupe
Wednesday, June 30th, 2027
Weeks of speculation were officially ended today when it was announced that Emílio Flores has been dismissed as the manager of the Guadalupe Frijoles de Dios.
"I can't really say I'm surprised. I saw this coming for a while, but I guess there was nothing much I could really do to prevent it," Emílio Flores told BNN. "It's not easy to manage when every decision you make is closely scrutinized and criticized, but that's what I dealt with."
A team official said the firing was the end result of "major and irreconcilable differences of opinion" between Flores and the front office. When pressed for more information, Guadalupe general manager Hiroaki Ikeda skirted the issue.
"We're not going to get into that right now. It's not really important why he was fired -- we're just going in a different direction," he said.
BNN originally reported Flores's tenure with the club was in jeopardy three weeks ago, which team officials at the time dismissed as "just a rumor."
