Eddie Lora former Minor League Red Sox and New York Mets First Baseman Goes BIG

Eddie-Lora

Eddie Lora – Former Latin Program Player of the year and former Red Sox and New York Mets First Baseman goes BIG

Eddie Lora is working out again and on the comeback trail. At the young age of 24 years old and with a few years of minor league experience on his resume the new and improved Eddie Lora will be working out for teams in the coming weeks to re-start his once promising Baseball career.  Better known for being a key player in the trade that sent Billy Wagner from the Mets to the Red Sox, Eddie left so much potential on the table the first time around.  Back to work in Baseball Eddie will draw interest from a number of leagues and organizations. This time around Eddie is ready to prove he can go all the way.

Eddie is serious about playing ball and taking it as far it goes this time, states his player representative Jimmy Goldsmith of BIG.  He is a beast of a man at 6’ 3” and having filled out to 235 lbs and he punishes the ball. He is smooth in the infield and he has matured mentally. This kid is ready to make an impact and be an asset to any roster.

Traded to the NY Mets with Chris Carter for Billy Wagner (August 2009)Scouting Report

: Dominican 1B with a great frame, has really filled out nicely for his age.   High power potential with good present pop.  Strikes out far too much.  In 2008, Lora impressed all around in the DSL, but fell flat during a mid-season promotion to the GCL.
