The real Juan Dominguez...

Thank you Mr. Santos for letting me share this story with everyone.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Juan Dominguez was made out to be a immature player that was a major head case.  The truth is that Juan was put into a situation to fail, he was put into a place where he knew nothing about.  Juan doesn't speak English, which made him an outcast in the locker room, he had no one to communicate to.

It was publicly noted when Juan missed the team meeting, Juan felt like he wasn't part of the team in a way, he had a language barrier that kept him from building any relationships.  He was late to a flight, yet no one was there to help him understand when it was time for the flight to leave.

Juan was on his own, he had to find his own way everywhere without any help from others.  The one relationship he did have was with Brad Fullmer who was nice enough to drive him around.  Juan suffered from depression that he dealt with by drinking heavily.   That has changed now, he has seen help and is on medication.

Juan was set up to fail since he was born when his mother abandoned him to his grandfather. 

His way of dealing with a bad day in Texas was buying a box of bears and coping with his problems.  His agents and some family members took advantage of him.  When he started making money, his family magically appeared along with various agents and took his money away.  He was left in Texas with noone to bond with and to let out his problems.

Juan had to carry all of these problems on his back at his young age, while everyone was making him out to be a bad guy.  He was misunderstood.

Pitching was the least of his problems.

Juan went from 240 pounds to 205 pounds where he is at right now.

 

The Marlins have been scouting him in the DR
