Shortstop – Jorge Mateo

No players of the year list of the Charleston RiverDogs would not be complete with out mentioning shortstop Jorge Mateo.  Mateo can be considered one of the top prospects in not just the organization but all of baseball.  Mateo hit .268 for the RiverDogs but also stole 71 bases before being promoted to the Tampa Yankees.
