In Winter League action yesterday, Starling Marte went 0-for-2 before leaving the game for a defensive replacement during the top of the sixth inning. The score at the time was 1-1 and Marte had previously struck out in the fourth inning, then played CF in the fifth without a play in the field. In other action in the Dominican, Anderson Hernandez went 1-for-5, while Oscar Tejada had a pinch-hit single in his only AB, before he finished the game at first base. Hernandez is hitting .260 with a .697 OPS in 73 AB’s. In Venezuela, Elevys Gonzalez had a ninth inning pinch-hit single in his only plate appearance. It was just his second AB of the VWL season, and his third game played. Darren Ford broke out of a slump with a big day at the plate. He went 4-for-5, with a double and two stolen bases. He was 2-for-13, with five strikeouts in his previous three games. In the Mexican League, Jovany Lopez retired the only hitter he faced, throwing three pitches before retiring the batter with a pop out to the catcher. Catcher Ali Solis went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts and a walk. He was picked off first base, but also picked off a runner himself and threw out the only attempted base stealer. Ali is hitting .186 in 18 games, with a .482 OPS. The Australian Baseball League is off until November 22nd. It was announced that Nate Baker(link is in Spanish) will join Caribes de Anzoategui of the Venezuelan League. The team already had three Pirates players from the DSL on their roster, as well as Jose Tabata, who will likely join the team at a later date. None of the DSL players, pitchers Jesus Paredes and Carlos Ruiz and catcher Carlos Marquez, have played yet.
