Lester Oliveros Is The 'Player To Be Named Later'

Yesterday, it was announced that the Twins had traded Delmon Young to the Tigers for Cole Nelson and the dreaded ‘player to be named later’, a phrase that generally connotates something along the lines of ‘look, we’ll send over a guy we really don’t think has much of a future and we’ll call it good’.

Lester Oliveros is the player to be named later.

Signed by the Tigers and assigned to their minior league system in 2006, Oliveros has steadily progressed from the Rookie League up through the Tigers farm system, making his major league debut this year.

In his minor league career he is 13-14 with 57 saves, and in his brief stint with the Tigers, he appeared in 3 games. He had a total of 8 innings pitched, and went 0-0 with no saves and a 5.63 ERA, giving up 8 hits, 4 walks, and he struck out 4.
