In Australia, there’s a significant prospect that I whiffed on in the league because I skimmed over his name on the roster the other night. Luckily, it was pointed out to me by someone from the Australian Baseball League last night, so I only missed the first game. Ji-Hwan Bae is playing for Geelong-Korea. He started at shortstop in the season opener and went 0-for-3 with two walks, two runs scored and a stolen base. He did not play on Friday (yes, today’s games are already over). Bae won the South Atlantic League batting title this year, but the ABL is a nice step up in competition over Low-A ball, so this winter will be a nice test for him.

Robbie Glendinning started at shortstop and went 0-for-2 with a sacrifice bunt in his team’s 1-0 win. He doubled and hit a three-run homer in the opener.

Jerrick Suiter started in right field for Canberra and went 0-for-3 with a walk. He went 0-for-4 in the season opener.

In Mexico, Randy Romero played for the first time since October 30th. He came on as a pinch-runner late and then played the last inning in center field. He’s 4-for-20 with a walk and a stolen base in 13 games this winter.

In Puerto Rico, Dylan Busby went 1-for-2 with a single, walk and an RBI. He played first base in his team’s 5-0 win, which was shortened to 5 1/2 innings due to rain. Busby was 0-for-4 with a HBP in his first two games.
