On June 26, 2017, Cuban-born prospects Norge Ruiz and Miguel Romero made their pitching debuts in the US. Both signed during the off-season by the Oakland Athletics, Ruiz and Romero made their A’s organization debuts earlier this month in the Dominican Summer League. Both were added to the AZL A’s roster at the start of Arizona Rookie League season.

Ruiz, 23, allowed five runs on five hits and two walks in four innings in his AZL debut. All five runs he allowed came in his third of four innings pitched. He struck-out four. Romero, 23, came on in relief of Ruiz and he allowed a run on three hits in two innings pitched. Romero struck-out three.

A’s top pick in the 2017 draft, Austin Beck, made his second pro start on Monday. Beck went 0-5 with two strike-outs.
