In the Dominican on Sunday, Starling Marte went 2-for-3 with two singles and a sacrifice bunt. We mentioned yesterday that he left in the sixth inning for a pinch-hitter in close game and it appears it was just a managerial decision. Marte is hitting .196/.236/.373 through 14 games.
Jung-Ho Kang went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored in his team’s one-side victory. He also struck out twice, increasing his league lead to 29 strikeouts. Kang has shaken off early rust on the defensive side, with no errors in his last 13 games. He committed four errors in his first ten games. On offense, he is hitting .138/.217/.200 through 23 games
Pablo Reyes went 3-for-4 with a triple and an RBI. We mentioned in yesterday’s article that he reached base three times, so he might be breaking out of his season-long slump in winter ball. Reyes is now hitting .254/.329/.328 in 22 games.
In Venezuela, Jose Osuna was once again in the DH spot, where he went 1-for-3 with a two-run double and an intentional walk. He went 1-for-4 in his debut on Saturday. Once he does play defense, Osuna will see some time at third base, along with taking turns at first base and in the outfield.
In Mexico, Carlos Munoz went 0-for-4, dropping him to a .252 average. He’s currently in a 5-for-34 slump, which is a tough spot to be in for someone looking to sign a free agent minor league deal this winter.
