In the Dominican on Thursday night, Eric Wood went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and two walks. The home run was his second of the winter.
On Friday, the Pirates announced that they signed outfielder Eury Perez to a minor league contract and invited him to Spring Training. He is playing for Leones del Escogido this winter and went 1-for-3 with three walks and a stolen base during Thursday night’s doubleheader. That gave him a .200/.351/.267 slash line through 28 games, mostly seeing time off the bench.
Jason Rogers went 1-for-4 with a single, RBI and run scored.
In Venezuela, Elvis Escobar returned to the lineup for the first time since November 27th. He was out with a lower left leg injury. He came off the bench in the sixth inning as a pinch-runner, scored a run, and then stayed in the game in left field. Escobar popped out to shortstop in his only at-bat.
In Mexico, Luis Heredia allowed one run on four hits and two walks in 2.1 innings. He had one strikeout and a 3:1 GO/AO ratio. The line is somewhat deceiving for Heredia, who allowed all three inherited runners to score in the fifth inning, after coming in with no outs and a 5-4 lead. In 16 appearances this winter, he has a 4.96 ERA in 32.2 innings.
Carlos Munoz flew out to left field as a pinch-hitter.
