PLAYERS: Matt Dominguez
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
MIAMI — Matt Dominguez received a scare on Friday when he was struck on the right thumb during fielding drills. For precautionary reasons, the Marlins initially were planning on holding third base prospect out of Saturday’s Arizona Fall League Rising Stars Game. Dominguez, however, was eager to play. And he saw some action for the AFL West squad in their 11-2 win over the East in the Rising Stars Game. The third baseman entered as a defensive replacement in the sixth inning, and he had one at-bat, striking out. On Friday, Dominguez took a ground ball off his finger, and an X-ray was taken. It revealed no fracture or ligament damage. Nursing a bruised thumb, Dominguez took batting practice on Saturday, and felt fine. In BP, he drove a couple of balls out of the park, an encouraging sign. In 64 AFL at-bats, Dominguez is batting .203 with three home runs and 13 RBIs. – Joe Frisaro
