With a few players seeing their season end last weekend, and Jose Osuna attending the Pirates mini-camp in Bradenton, the action in winter ball has been very light this week. There won’t be much going on unless some players of note return to action, so there might only be a couple more winter articles left. Here is all of the action from the last six days.
In the Dominican, Jason Rogers went 3-for-5 with his second double of the playoffs.
Eury Perez went 2-for-4 with a run scored.
In Puerto Rico, Danny Ortiz went 0-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout. He re-signed with the Pirates over the weekend and was invited to Spring Training as a non-roster player.
In the Dominican, Jason Rogers went 2-for-4 with two singles and a run scored.
Eury Perez went 1-for-4 with a single.
Miguel Rosario recorded two outs, while allowing one run on one hit. He struck out Jason Rogers and allowed a triple to Mel Rojas Jr.
