Jerad Head - RF, Gigantes de Carolina: 1-for-5, BB, 2 K. Head was back in action in Puerto Rico on Tuesday night after a week's absence from the lineup. He showed some rust at the plate going 0-for-4 in the first game of the doubleheader, but came...

A lot of players struggle with maintaining consistency throughout a pro baseball season.
Some players will go through stretches in a season where they seemingly can’t buy a hit and their approach at the plate is awful. Some are streaky where they will immediately follow a hot streak with a severe cold...

Yohan Pino - RP, Tigres de Aragua: 2.1 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. What an ugly pitching line for Pino, though he never yielded a run. He came on to start the 6th inning and gave up two hits and a walk to load the bases but worked his way out of the inning...

Luis Valbuena - 2B, Cardenales de Lara: 0-for-2, 4 R, 3 BB. Maybe it is a bit over-stated, but it is hard not to like what Valbuena is doing out in Venezuela from an on-base perspective. Yes, he is only hitting .222 in 51 games, but he also has a...

Dischler, 21, was selected by the Indians in the 23rd round of the 2010 Draft out of Louisiana State University-Eunice Junior College. As a draft eligible...
