In the Dominican, Eric Wood played left field and went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer (shown below). This was his first home run of the winter and 20th since April, with 16 coming during the regular season in Altoona and three in the Arizona Fall League. Wood is batting .250 through nine games, with a double, homer and six walks. He hasn’t started at third base since the second game of the winter. While his defense there is considered slightly above average, he did commit an error in each of those two games.
Willy Garcia went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning. He dropped down to a .194 average.
Pablo Reyes came into Friday’s game as a pinch-runner in the seventh inning. He flew out to Mel Rojas Jr. in center field in his only at-bat. Reyes is hitting .326 through 15 games.
Kelvin Marte had his worst start of the winter, but that’s not saying much considering he had an 0.81 ERA coming into the game. He allowed two runs on six hits and one walk in five innings. He now has a 1.17 ERA through 38.1 innings. Marte is still a free agent.
In Venezuela, Jose Osuna went 2-for-4 with his 11th double and a two-run single in his team’s 3-2 loss. He is 7-for-15 in his last four games.
Elvis Escobar has been out the last few days due to inflammation in his left foot. He was originally in Wednesday’s lineup before being removed a couple hours before game time. No word from his team on when he is expected to return.
In Australia, Sam Kennelly played third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. He is hitting .160/.300/.160 through nine games.
In Nicaragua, Anderson Feliz is batting .330/.411/.541 through 25 games.
In Colombia, Henrry Rosario is hitting .276/.425/.345 through 75 plate appearances.
