SF Giants pitching prospect Melvin Adon debuted for the Toros Del Este in the Dominican Winter League today but had to leave the game with an apparent arm injury.
Many SF Giants players and prospects are trying to make some extra money and stay in shape for the season by playing in various winter leagues around the world. Pitcher Melvin Adon made his debut with the Toros Del Este of the Dominican Winter League on Friday and hit 101 mph on the radar gun. However, he had to leave the game with an apparent injury that appeared to be focused on his upper arm near the shoulder.
Adon has been one of the most tantalizing pitching prospects with the Giants since he signed with the organization in 2015. While the 26-year old’s development has yet to reach the level many hoped, he was expected to compete for a spot in the team’s bullpen in Spring Training.
