It may have been Thanksgiving on Thursday in the United States, but for most of the rest of the world it was just like any other day. The winter ball action continued in Australia and the Venezuela and the highlight of the night came from lefty Elvis Araujo who put forth his best outing of his winter campaign so far.

Both Carlos Moncrief and Jesus Aguilar extended their hitting streaks on Wednesday, but their lack of stringing together multiple hits as of late continues to be a mild concern this off-season. In the Dominican, Erik Gonzalez appears to be coming back to earth after swinging a hot bat for most of the off-season thus far. And meanwhile, Roberto Perez is still looking for his first winter ball hit. Join the IBI's Michael Goodman as he takes a trip around the farm.
