November 8, 2022 – Texas League (TL)San Antonio Missions News Release

SAN ANTONIO – After seeing 77 Missions alumni receive big league action in 2021, the 2022 season was no different. Throughout the illustrious history of the San Antonio Missions, legendary names like Mike Piazza, Joe Morgan and Brooks Robinson once called the Alamo City home. In recent years, players like Trea Turner, Corbin Burnes and Corey Kluber have demonstrated that Wolff Stadium is still helping to produce legendary talent.

During the 2022 season, 75 former Missions players made appearances in The Show across 28 teams. Only the Texas Rangers and Chicago White Sox made it through the season without a Missions player on their rosters. Five Missions players from the 2022 season made appearances in the big leagues while the other 70 can be traced back to the 2009 season.

Those five players from the 2022 Missions are: Michel Baez, Brandon Dixon, Dinelson Lamet, Adrian Morejon and Esteury Ruiz. Baez began his second stint in San Antonio on a rehab assignment and ended up making 13 appearances with the club. Dixon was added to San Diego’s roster in September and joined the club for the National League Wild Card Series. Lamet was optioned from San Diego down to Triple-A and eventually to San Antonio. He was later acquired by Colorado and pitched in 19 games for the Rockies. Morejon appeared in five games during a rehab appearance before returning to the San Diego Padres. Lastly, Ruiz made his Major League debut with the Padres following his performance with the Missions and Triple-A El Paso. He also appeared in games for the Brewers after being dealt to Milwaukee at the Trade Deadline.

The Milwaukee Brewers had the most Missions alumni with a total of 14 players. The San Diego Padres, the parent club for the Missions, had 13 former Missions players make an appearance for the club this season.
