ATF: December 9
December 10, 2011
- Mitch Nilsson (C, Brisbane Bandits): 1-for-3, 2 R, 2B, BB, K. Even though he has been with the team for over a month, Nilsson has only played in 4 games in the ABL. As an inexperienced 20-year old low level prospect, that is what happens. He is now 2-for-12 at the plate this offseason.
- Asdrubal Cabrera (DH, Leones del Caracas): 0-for-2, R, BB. After a hot start in his first game piling up 3 hits, Cabrera is now 0-for-6 in his last 2 games. He is 3-for-10 overall in 3 games with 1 walks and has yet to strike out.
- Jesus Aguilar (PH, Leones del Caracas): 1-for-1, RBI. Asdrubal Cabrera is getting a firsthand look at the potential future first baseman of the Indians, Jesus Aguilar. Aguilar has a ways to go still before he is big league ready, but he’s just having a dandy of an offseason so far.
- Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-3, BB. A nice job by Carrera as the leadoff guy getting on base 2 times. He is having a solid showing in Venezuela as he leads the league in triples (5) and is second in stolen bases (10).
- Rob Bryson (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. Bryson pitched for the first time in 10 days and had a good outing. In 13 appearances this fall in Venezuela he has a nice 2.79 ERA, though in 9.2 innings he has allowed 10 hits, 2 homers and 8 walks.
