Around the Farm: October 21
|Kelvin De La Cruz|
- Chad Huffman (1B): 0-for-4. Aguilar got the day off so it allowed Huffman to get some time in live game action at first base. Still off to a slow start with the bat going 4-for-24 in 6 games.
- Tyler Sturdevant (RP): 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. Sturdevant’s best outing so far in his first three appearances. It was 4 up and 4 down on 11 pitches (9 strikes).
- Kelvin De La Cruz (RP, Aguilas Cibaenas): 0.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. De La Cruz faced just one batter and hit him and then was promptly removed. His usage so far this fall has been interesting and almost like he is being used strictly as a loogy.
- Jerad Head (LF, Tigres del Licey): 1-for-4, 2 K. Head has played six games so far in the DR and has struck out in 6 of his 23 at bats.
- Juan Diaz (2B, Estrelles de Oriente): 0-for-4. Diaz gets some time at second base, a position he did not play all year. He has yet to record a hit in 15 at bats this fall.
- Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 1-for-3, R, 2B, BB, K. Valbuena is getting a lot of playing time and is off to a productive start with a .276/.400/.483 batting line in 9 games.
