Padres' players emerging in winter leagues

I saw this little nugget in an mlb.com story:

He currently has a 0.96 ERA in the Dominican Winter League.

"He" is Luis Perdomo, a Rule 5 pick of the San Francisco Giants last year who was cut at the end of spring training and ended up with the Padres. Perhaps he'll also end up being a bigger steal than Everth Cabrera.

But he's not the only Padres' gem polishing his game in Latin America this winter.

If any of you saw an earlier post I did this week, you'll remember me taking a shot at Radhames Liz, and getting his name transposed. I apologize on both counts. In a tiny sample of four games and 13.2 innings in the Dominican Winter League, Liz has struck out 13, walked four and compiled an ERA of 0.66.

And for those of you who inferred that the Padres know more about what they're doing than I do, well, you were surely right. Liz is playing for Estrellas de Oriente, the same team Eulogio de la Cruz is playing for. The Padres, who picked Liz off waivers, just put de la Cruz on waivers. He has an ERA of 27.00, though in the tiniest of sample sizes -- 2.1 innings over three games. He has walked three and struck out one.

And as Corey Brock noted a few weeks ago, Luis Durango is also in the Dominican league. He has his OBP at .409, though his avg has dropped precipitously over the past couple weeks, down to .315. He has also stolen 10 bases and been caught thrice. He has had 127 at-bats in 37 games.

Those are the Padres in the Dominican league, at least. I don't have time to check the rosters of the Mexican, Puerto Rican or Venezuelan leagues. Perhaps I'll do that tomorrow.
