Winter League Update for 12/31/2008

In Mexico: Jason Bourgeois went 1-for-3 with a walk and was caught stealing. He finished the Mexican regular season on a seven game hitting streak, hitting .342/.404/.429 with 11 steals in 15 attempts.

In Venezuela:
  • Anderson de la Rosa made his VWL debut yesterday, going 0-for-2 for Lara.
  • Hernan Iribarren went 2-for-3 but did not detonate any indisputables. He went 12-for-34 after coming back from injury, and finished the season hitting .306/.388/.451.
  • Brendan Katin went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. He closed out the season with one walk and 16 strikeouts in his final nine games on his way to a .257/.335/.550 batting line.
  • Freddy Parejo went 1-for-3 with a walk for Lara. Lara must have cleared out the bench yesterday, as Parejo only had one PA on the season before yesterday.
  • Luis Pena pitched a scoreless inning for La Guaira, giving up a walk and nothing else. He finished VWL play with 6.2 innings accumulated over three months and a 8.10 ERA.
In the Dominican Republic: Rafael Lluberes gave up a hit to the only batter he faced Monday, and that runner scored later.

In Puerto Rico:
  • Carlos Corporan went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.
  • Richie Gardner retired the only batter he faced Tuesday.
  • Efrain Nieves pitched a scoreless inning with a hit, a walk and a strikeout. He's allowed three earned runs in 11.1 innings despite allowing 18 baserunners.
