In the Dominican on Wednesday night, Eric Wood went 0-for-3 with a strikeout, as he waited to hear what the Rule 5 draft would hold for his future. Wood didn’t get picked, but Cesilio Pimentel did get selected. While he isn’t considered a prospect, Pimentel was playing winter ball in the Dominican this year, so that’s takes away one player from our coverage.
Pablo Reyes followed up his four-hit game with a 1-for-4 night.
Willy Garcia grounded out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning, then finished the game in center field. He is hitting .225/.289/.250 through 17 games.
Kelvin Marte allowed two runs on six hits and one walk in five innings. He had three strikeouts and an 8:2 GO/AO ratio. Marte has a 1.45 ERA through 43.1 innings. He remains a free agent.
In Venezuela, Jose Osuna went 1-for-3 with a walk, a strikeout and a run scored.
In Mexico, Luis Heredia pitched the final two innings of his team’s 5-4 win in 14 innings. He allowed one run on one hit and three walks (one intentional), with one strikeout. Heredia has a 5.04 ERA through 30.1 innings, with 18 walks and 26 strikeouts. Mexico is a high offense league, so perhaps his most impressive stat is zero home runs allowed. Heredia has a 1.44 GO/AO ratio.
Carlos Munoz went 1-for-4 with a run scored, before leaving for a pinch-runner in the eighth inning.
In Puerto Rico, Danny Ortiz went 2-for-5 with a run scored. He leads the league with a .375 average.
In Venezuela on Thursday night, Elias Diaz made a quick return from an injury that caused him to leave Tuesday night in the sixth inning while he was batting. Diaz sat out Wednesday with a strained intercostal muscle on his right side, then returned to the lineup on Thursday and went 0-for-1 before leaving for a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning. Before anyone panics though, he left because the score was 8-0 at the time.
Jose Osuna went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk. He is hitting .259/.333/.374 through 47 games.
Julio Vivas was traded to a new team in Venezuela nearly two weeks ago, but he made his first appearance with them on Thursday night. He recorded the final two outs of the sixth inning and stranded a runner, though he did issue two walks to load the bases.
In the Dominican, Eric Wood went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts. He’s hitting .222/.352/.311 through 14 games. Wood started this game in left field, then moved to first base for the final inning. He has not played third base since the second game of his winter season.
Pablo Reyes had a rare off night, going 0-for-4. He is batting .355 through 19 games.
In Mexico, Carlos Munoz went 1-for-2 with a single, sacrifice bunt and a hit-by-pitch. He also scored a run, which is noteworthy because he went 33 games to start the season without scoring a run, yet he has now scored in three straight games.
In Australia, Sam Kennelly went 1-for-4 with a single. He is hitting .158 through 13 games.
In Nicaragua, Anderson Feliz is batting .349/.425/.550 through 29 games.
In Colombia, Henrry Rosario is hitting .247/.376/.325 through 95 plate appearances.
