Edwin Rios is one of those baseball players trying to make it to the majors by working at his skills at multiple positions.
Rios, an infielder with the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers, played a game at both first base and third base in Thursday’s doubleheader against the San Antonio Missions at Wolff Stadium. Rios played first base in the first game. He walked and scored a run in the second inning. He played third base in the second game.
The 25-year-old from Puerto Rico hit .304 with 10 home runs last season in 88 games with Oklahoma City.
Baseball America lists Rios as one of the top 30 prospects in the Dodgers’ organization. He is listed as a third baseball, hitting left-handed and throwing right-handed.
OKC continues a five-game series with the Missions on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
