Winter Leagues: Playoff Preview From Puerto Rico

Winter Leagues: Playoff Preview From Puerto Rico

From Australia on Thursday, Danny Arribas was the only Pirates player in action and he went 0-for-4 with a run scored in his team's 5-4 win. Arribas was the designated hitter. He is batting .172 this season through 25 games and .129 in his last ten games. It's a more advanced league than Arribas is used to seeing in his young career, but he has batted over .300 in each of his last two seasons. He hit .308 in the Dominican Summer League in 2012 and he hit .307 in the GCL this past year.

The boxscores from Monday night in Colombia took awhile to upload to their site, so all we knew yesterday was that Harold Ramirez had homered in game one of a doubleheader. He ended up going 2-for-2 that game with a single, homer, walk, stolen base and two RBIs. Tito Polo batted lead-off and played center field, going 0-for-4 at the plate. In game two, Ramirez went 1-for-3 with a single. Polo pinch-ran and scored the walk-off run in the bottom of the seventh.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
