Biography

Below is a partial list of minor league baseball players of the minor league affiliates of the Arizona Diamondbacks:

Luis Alejandro Basabe

Luis Alejandro Basabe (bah-sah'vay) (born August 26, 1996) is a Venezuelan professional baseball second baseman in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization.

In 2012, the Boston Red Sox made a pair of international signings that were unusual. The organization signed identical twins from Venezuela, both named Luis Basabe, both switch-hitters who throw right-handed, both were around the same size and weight, and each of whom signed for a $450,000 bonus when they turned 16 on August 26. Relatively new to baseball, the Basabe twins started to play the game a short time before signing, as they spent most of their childhood playing soccer. Luis Alejandro is a middle infielder with plus speed, an advanced glove and limited power but outstanding feel to reach first base without the benefit of a base hit. He also has shown better ability to manipulate the bat head than his brother, Luis Alexander, a speedy center fielder with a strong arm who has raw power and potential to add strength. They debuted with the Dominican Summer League Red Sox in its 2013 season.

In his season debut, Luis Alejandro appeared in 58 of the team's 70 games. He hit just .192 with one home run and 14 RBI, but compiled a .332 on-base percentage with 25 runs scored and nine stolen bases in 11 attempts. He then was limited to 29 games in 2014 because of injury, and finished with a .222/.403/.273 slash line, 19 runs and nine stolen bases.

Once recovered from his injury, Basabe joined the Gulf Coast League Red Sox in 2015, where he divided his playing time between second base and shortstop in only 28 games, as he was sidelined by another injury. Even so, he improved his average to .260 and recorded a .387 OBP, while scoring 22 runs with six RBIs and eight steals.

In 2016, Basabe was moved up two levels and rejoined his sibling twin with the Greenville Drive, where he had his breakthrough season. Luis Alejandro was unstoppable out of the leadoff spot since the beginning, reaching base safely in 46 of his first 50 games, including 17 multi-hit contests, 38 runs, 18 RBI and a club-high 13 stolen bases, all while posting a .311/.414/.463 line. He was selected as utility infielder for the Southern Division team at the South Atlantic League All-Star Game.

On July 9, 2016, the Arizona Diamonbacks acquired Basabe and starting pitcher Jose Almonte from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for relief pitcher Brad Ziegler. Basabe was assigned to the Kane County Cougars. Arizona assigned him to the Kane County Cougars and he finished the season there. In 109 total games between Greenville and Kane County, he batted .272 with seven home runs and 38 RBIs. He returned to Kane County in 2017 and played in 53 games, batting .229 with two home runs and seven RBIs. He missed the last three months of the season due to a knee injury that ultimately required surgery.

In 2018, Basabe split time between Kane County and the Visalia Rawhide, batting .249 with two home runs and 22 RBIs in 90 games between the two clubs. He spent 2019 with Visalia, slashing .293/.402/.390 with four home runs, 51 RBIs, and 16 stolen bases over 117 games.
