Royals' Mendoza Named MVP of Caribbean Series
HERMOSILLO, Mexico -- Kansas City Royals pitcher Luis Mendoza has been named MVP of the Caribbean Series.
The 29-year-old right hander-posted impressive numbers in two starts for Mexico's Yaquis de Obregon, pitching 13 1/3 scoreless innings. On Wednesday he gave up just two hits in 7 1/3 and carried a no-hitter into the seventh frame.
Mendoza appeared in 30 games for the Royals last season, starting 25. He finished the year with an 8-10 record and a 4.23 ERA.
There is speculation Mendoza may be in contention for the fifth starting spot in the Royals rotation.
