- Giovanni Soto (RP, Gigantes de Carolina): 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Soto is making up for lost time this fall after missing a big chunk of the regular season because of elbow soreness. He has been very impressive in 8 appearances this fall allowing just 1 run in 9.0 innings and has allowed 6 hits, 3 walks and has 9 strikeouts. For a young 20-year old kid like him, you can’t perform much better than that.
- Eric Berger (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Berger made his Venezuela debut going a perfect inning of relief and got the win. He is expected to remain out in Venezuela until the league wraps up play, and could really use the extra time to get some extra innings in for more experience and also to refine his pitches.
