In Venezuela on Thursday night, Jose Osuna went 1-for-3 with a three-run double in game one of a doubleheader. In game two, Osuna went 1-for-2 with a single, before leaving the game early when the score got out of hand. He committed his third error of the winter in game one, misplaying one of two grounders hit his way. He handled one grounder cleanly and another one to him ended up as an infield single in the second game. All three of his errors in 11 games at third base have occurred while fielding grounders, so he hasn't had any issues with his limited amount of throws. He has 21 total chances, 15 being grounders.
Danny Ortiz went 0-for-3 with an RBI in game one of a doubleheader. He went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in the second game. He is 2-for-24 through seven games.

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.
