In Arizona: Taylor Green busted out of his slump, going 2-for-3 with a couple of RBI, but it was not enough as the Javelinas lost to Surprise, 6-4. Josh Butler started for the Javelinas and got rocked again, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks in 1.2 innings of work. Omar Aguilar followed him to the mound and allowed one run on a hit and two walks in 1.1 innings. Zach Braddock pitched the final inning and allowed two hits, but kept his scoreless streak alive (six innings), striking out one.
In the Dominican Republic:
- Carlos Gomez made his debut Sunday for Escogito, going 2-for-3 with an HBP and getting caught stealing.
Erick Almonte went 2-for-3 with a walk and three RBI for Cibao Sunday. His .429 OBP is now the fifth highest in the DWL*.
- Juan Sandoval retired the only batter he faced on Sunday for Oriente.
* - Former Brewer Kevin Barker, who is also spending the winter in the DR, is third at .439. Conor Jackson leads all batters at .561.
In Mexico: David Welch, pitching on eight days rest, started for Guasave on Saturday and allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk in six innings. He did strike out three.
Several Brewer farmhands in the winter leagues have become minor league free agents, so they will no longer appear in these reports. Ryan Houston and Sam Narron are the two I noticed this morning, but there's probably more.
