Since his arrival from Rookie-level to Class-A Advanced Myrtle Beach in 2017, Carlos Sepulveda has not been one to turn heads. The luck seems to be changing, however, as he is starting to find his bat at the perfect time.
Reigning as part of the 2014 international free agent class for the Chicago Cubs, Carlos Sepulveda has yet to put together a quality season for the Pelicans. It is not entirely his fault as Sepulveda has dealt with injuries in each of the past two seasons, which had derailed his production. He missed all of 2018 due to injury.
Now in 2019, fully healthy, Sepulveda has been one of the better players for the Pelicans over the past few weeks. If he continues to stay healthy and keep on his current track, Sepulveda could turn into an underrated prospect in the pipeline.
A left-handed second baseman, it would be great if Sepulveda morphed into what the Cubs had hoped when they signed him out of Mexico. When healthy, Sepulveda has shown glimpses of high production. Let us hope he can continue putting it all together.
