2012 MLB Free Agents: Eugenio Velez Among 23 Los Angeles Dodgers Minor League Free Agents

Major League Baseball is firmly entrenched in the hot stove season, now that the World Series is over. Major league players filed for free agency on October 29, and a few days later 537 minor league players did, too. Matt Eddy at Baseball America broke down the entire list, which includes 23 Los Angeles Dodgers.

Infielder Eugenio Velez, one of the 23 Dodgers free agents, made MLB history this season by going hitless in 37 at-bats, the most ever by a position player without a hit in one season. In addition, Velez is hitless in his last 46 major league at-bats, the longest streak of futility ever by a non-pitcher. But the 29-year old did hit .339/.371/.463 in 55 games in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. That seems like a destination in the future for Velez, who was outrighted by the Dodgers on October 4, removing him from the 40-man roster.

Other Dodgers minor league free agents who saw time in the majors with the club in the last few seasons are pitchers Jon Link and Travis Schlichting, and first baseman John Lindsey.
