November Dominican Winterball Update

See what progress the Friars, Missions, TinCaps, Storm, and Chihuahuas have made so far.

The Padres organization has been keeping very busy this offseason. Preller is putting the roster into motion, and players from the 40-man and beyond are seeing plenty of practice and rehabilitation.

DOMINICAN WINTER BALL: Liriano, Grandal, Maybin, progress

Cameron Maybin OF - Toros del Este

New .324 AVG, 34 AB, 5 R, 11 H, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 4 BB, 10 SO, 1 SB, .807 OPS

Prev .350 AVG, 20 AB, 1 R, 7 H, 3 2B, 6 SO, .850 OPS

Maybin has only played about 5 games since the last posting. He has done a little bit for the Toros in his limited play time. Three of his four starts in November have seen hits, his best recent game coming off November 10th along with Grandal against the Leones del Escogido. Cam went 1-2 drawing two walks and scoring twice. The night before, Maybin went 1-4 but with a 2-run RBI. Cam has only played 9 games, fewer than any of his Friar-Toros teammates.

Yasmani Grandal C - Toros del Este

New .406 AVG, 32 AB, 3 R, 13 H, 3 2B, 8 RBI, 9 BB, 8 SO, 2 SB 1.024 OPS

Prev .273 AVG, 33 AB, 3 R, 9 H, 5 2B, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 10 BB, 10 SO, 947 OPS

Yasmani's last ten games have been productive and well-rounded. His best game was a week and a half ago against the Leones del Escogido. Yaz went 1-3 drawing 2 walks and smacking an RBI-double, only striking out once. He has been very active and a consistent starting catcher for the Toros, and currently has a 7 game hitting streak. He is currently in the top 10 batting leaders for the winter league.

Tommy Medica 1B - Toros del Este

.148 AVG, 29 AB, 6 R, 3 H, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 5 BB, 13 SO, .442 OPS

Playing his 10th game since being brought onto the Toros on November 5th, Medica hasn't had a very friendly time at the plate in the Dominican League. His best game, along with Grandal and Maybin, was on the 10th where Tommy went 1-3 with his first home run, 4 RBIs, and two walks.

Rymer Liriano OF - Tigres del Licey

New .321 AVG, 28 AB, 4 R, 9 H, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 3 BB, 4 SO, 1 CS

Prev .235 AVG, 34 AB, 2 R, 8 H, 3 RBI, 8 SO, 1 SB, .533 OPS

Liriano has been active for the Tigres in November. He had a big game after the first week of the month against his teammates on the Toros, going 2-4, hitting his first home run of the season, and notching 3 RBIs. On the 19th against the Gigantes he was red hot, going 3-4. The lone Friar-Tiger is seeing plenty of productive playing time, despite going hitless through the second week of November.

Frank Garces LHP -  Toros del Este

Garces has seen 6 appearances in November thus far, and on average he's facing about two batters per appearance. In November he has only given up one walk, and collected 7 strikeouts. He pitched a full inning at the beginning of the month; conceding nothing.

Donn Roach RHP - Gigantes del Cibao

Picked-up-off-waivers as heck, now a Cubbie.

Luis De La Cruz RHP - Estrellas de Oriente

Currently active with his previous appearance on October 25th where he faced 2 batters giving up a run and a hit.

Chris Rearick LHP - Estrellas de Oriente

The Chihuahuan has seen consistant play through the month. His current inning count is up to 6.2, and has collected 7 strikeouts so far (6 this month) and has yet to give up a hit or a walk in November.

Genison Reyes RHP - Estrellas de Oriente

Still hasn't seen play since his last appearance November 2nd where he struck out a guy, but is still listed as active.

Yeison Asencio OF - Estrellas de Oriente

Made one plate appearance on the 8th where he went 0-3 against the Tigres.

Jerry Sullivan RHP  - Aguilas Cibaenas

Activated and seeing a good amount of playing time. In November he has thrown about an inning and a half worth of stuff, striking out five, walking two, and giving up two runs on two hits (one being a home run on his latest game last Sunday where he went 1.1 innings.)

Diego Goris 3B - Aguilas Cibaenas

Hasn't done much with 7 at-bats, going hitless and striking out twice.

Stephen Kohlscheen RHP - Leones del Escogido

This Chihuahua is seeing a lot of play. Averaging at just about an inning a game, this season Kohlscheen is up to 14 strikeouts posting a 3.00 ERA. He has only given up 4 walks and 4 runs on 5 hits, 3 of them earned, collecting 3 saves as well. Definitely the most active arm representing the San Diego organizations.

Jeudy Valdez 2B  - Leones del Escogido

Also gone to the Cubs.
