Miggie has landed

Everyone's favorite lefthander, Miggie de los Santos, has finally landed after a year's delay due to a kafkaesque visa paperwork nightmore, reports Jason Cole. He closed last year in the DSL after appearing to profile as a starter (coming back from TJ surgery) in 2008. Cole reports that his FB was in the mid-90s in that role and given the time he has missed stateside (1yr missed due to surgery, 1 year missed due to the visa) you would think that TX sticks him in a late inning bullpen role in Hickory for 09 to try to fast track him. The one warning sign that puts his prospect ceiling in doubt is that his command was abhorrent in his capacity as a closer last year, _worse_ than it was during his first year back from TJ.
