WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Cerda is a catcher who signed at age 17 out of the Dominican.  He hasn’t shown much at the plate and appears to be an organizational player at this point.

2012
DSL:  260/302/320, 50 AB, 1 2B, 1 3B, 3 BB, 3 K

Cerda caught 19 games, throwing out 26% of base stealers.  He showed little at the plate other than an ability to put the ball in play.

2013
DSL:  230/275/270, 100 AB, 4 2B, 5 BB, 13 K, 0-1 SB

Cerda caught in 28 games and again threw out 26%, but he had significant problems with errors, committing ten.  He didn’t make any progress at the plate.

2014
R:  178/269/178, 45 AB, 6 BB, 9 K

Cerda backed up Yoel Gonzalez in the GCL.  He hit very little in limited chances and threw out 15% of base stealers.

Cerda will probably back up somewhere in short season ball in 2015.
