Eddy Morrobel

BA has some interesting notes on the Rangers' newest converted infielder piitching prospect, Eddy Morrobel:

Texas Rangers
RHP Eddy Morrobel (released by Rockies, March 21, 2012)
Northeast area scout Takeshi Sakurayama discovered 20-year-old righty Eddy Morrobel after watching him throw bullpens with head coach Scott Dulin at Fisher College in Boston. Born in the U.S., Morrobel moved to the Dominican Republic as a youth and originally signed as an international free agent with the Rockies in 2010, spending two years as an infielder in the Dominican Summer League. He moved back to the Northeast to live with his cousin after being released in March 2012, and he first began pitching in the wood-bat Yawkey League that summer while taking classes at Bunker Hill (Mass.) CC. The Rangers sent Morrobel to instructional league in the D.R. to continue learning to pitch.
