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.

Sunday

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.

Monday

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.

In Venezuela, Elvis Escobar played the last two innings on defense in left field without getting a plate appearance. He has appeared in each of the last five playoff games, though he has only batted three times.

Tuesday

In the Dominican, Eury Perez went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored.

Jason Rogers went 0-for-4 with his first error of the winter in left field.

In Venezuela, Elvis Escobar played the ninth inning in left field and didn’t bat. His team won their first round series over Jose Osuna’s club. Osuna missed the last two games while he was at Pirate City for mini-camp.

In Puerto Rico, Danny Ortiz went 0-for-4 in his team’s 2-1 loss.

Wednesday

In the Dominican, Eury Perez went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in his team’s 4-2 victory. You can view the home run at the bottom of the article. Some of you might recognize the pitcher as long-time MLB closer Jose Valverde.

Jason Rogers went 1-for-4 with a single in his team’s 6-0 loss.

In Puerto Rico, Danny Ortiz went 1-for-3 with a double. His team was eliminated from the playoffs in seven games and Ortiz hit .125 during the series, after leading the league in average and OPS during the regular season this winter.

Through four playoff games in Nicaragua, Anderson Feliz went 2-for-13, with a single, a walk and a sacrifice bunt. His team won their first round series and now move on to the finals.

Thursday

Jason Rogers went 2-for-4 with two singles and drove in two runs in his team’s 4-1 win.

In Venezuela, Elvis Escobar pinch-ran in the seventh and scored a run, then stayed in the game in left field. He grounded out to second base in his only plate appearance.

Friday

In the Dominican, Eury Perez went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice bunt and a run scored. He is hitting .356 through 14 playoff games.

Jason Rogers went 0-for-4 and now has a .333 average through 14 playoff games.

In Venezuela, Elvis Escobar pinch-ran in the seventh inning and scored a run, then stayed in the game in left field. To switch things up from the previous day, he popped out to shortstop in his only plate appearance. In eight playoff games, he is 1-for-5 with four runs scored.

  1. Man, LLOYD sees that there haven’t been many comments on here over the last few days. Well LLOYD is gonna make a big comment……as in a trade proposal that is kinda off the wall.

    What about trading Marte and Harrison to the Dodgers for:
    1. Yasiel Puig RF – Marte’s replacement in RF for the next 2 years
    2. Cody Bellinger 1B – Bell’s replacement in 2018 making him a major trade candidate next year or this season for Q
    3. Jose DeLeon SP – Possible #5 starter in 2017 or trade chip for Q (replacement for Glasnow)
    4. Alex Verdugo RF – With Meadow’s, replace Puig and Cutch at the very latest after 2018

    This gives NH the ability to trade Glasnow and Bell for Q

    So with both trades, for 2017 we have:

    1. Frazier/Hanson 2B (L/S)
    2. Jaso/Freese 1B (L/R)
    3. Cutch LF
    4. Kang 3B
    5. Polanco CF (L)
    6. Puig RF
    7. Cervelli C
    8. Mercer SS

    1. Cole
    2. Quintana (L)
    3. Tallion
    4. Nova
    5. Kuhl

    2018:
    * Same as 2017 but with Bellinger as the 1B. Cutch and/or Puig could be traded and replaced by Meadows and/or Verdugo
    * DeLeon replaces Kuhl or whoever may be traded

    2019:

    1. Newman SS
    2. Meadows LF (L)
    3. Polanco CF (L)
    4. Kang 3B
    5. Bellinger 1B (L)
    6. Verdugo RF (L)
    7. Frazier/Hanson 2B (L/S)
    8. Cervelli C

    Rotation – Same as 2018

    Men, this two playoff squads………

      • He has trade value. He’s a 1.5 to 2.0 WAR player with a contract at $7.5M, $10M then $10.5M and $11M options. Easily $15 M in excess value there. Not sure why people act like he’s on some overpaid contract. If he was waived he’d be picked up instantly.

        Now does Marte have enough excess value to cover the rest of the deal? He’s a little harder to value because playing center where he should be would probably give him a boost in value. He has about $110 M excess value in his contract as a 4.5 WAR player. When I first saw LBF’s post it seemed pretty silly but I’m not sure it’s too bad.

        • $15m in *excess* value? Not a chance.

          Think of it this way, if Harrison were a free agent this winter, would he have any shot at getting a 2 yr, $33m contract? Not even close.

          Hell, would he even beat the contract Sean Rodriguez signed this winter?

    • I think technically he could head back through a draft but there’s like no chance that it will happen, I think there was a article here earlier that explained it
