ATF: December 18
December 19, 2011
- Giovanny Urshela (3B, Cartagena Tigres): 1-for-5, R, 2B, BB, K. Urshela continues to not do much with the bat, but the glovework has always been his specialty. He was a busy man on the hot corner on Sunday as he had 2 putouts, 4 assists, and was involved in one double play.
- Felix Pie (CF, Estellles de Oriente): 1-for-4, 2 RBI, K, SB. Pie has now played in 42 games this offseason and racked up over 170 plate appearances all in the hopes of helping nudge his once promising career back on track. Maybe for once the Indians catch a break and he does that next year….or then again, maybe not.
- Robert Perez (C, Indios de Mayaguez): 0-for-2, BB, K. Perez’s trend continues where he does a nice job drawing walks, but once again it is at the expense of being way too passive and not being aggressive enough with the good pitches he gets. He has 17 walks in 20 games this offseason (good), but he is just 14-for-64 (.219) at the plate (bad).
- Jose Lopez (3B, Cardenales de Lara): 0-for-2, R, 2 BB. Lopez went hitless on the night, but it was actually a productive night for him as he typically does not draw walks and even without a hit he was able to reach base 2 out of 4 times at the plate.
- Asdrubal Cabrera (DH, Leones del Caracas): 1-for-4, 2 K. Well, Cabrera got a hit, which was good. But he is still mired in a 3-for-29 slump his last 9 games and has 7 strikeouts in his last 7 games.
- Jesus Aguilar (PH, Leones del Caracas): 1-for-1, 2B, RBI. Even though he did not start and was a late game pinch hitting option Aguilar came in and had another productive game in his one at bat by coming up with a clutch 2-out game tying double in the 9th inning.
