Arizona Fall League

AFL East Fall-Stars 6, AFL West Fall Stars 5

Richie Palacios (CF, AFL East Fall-Stars): 0-2, K – Palacios didn’t start the game but ended up with two at-bats thanks to the fact that the game still played the bottom of the ninth inning despite the East Fall Stars being up 6-5 as the home team after the top of the ninth. Palacios struck out in that final at bat on four pitches. In his first at bat he went down 0-2 on a foul ball to left that only missed the line by a little bit and a swing and miss, but grounded out. In all, he had three putouts in centerfield and saw 10 pitches in two at bats in the game.

Jose Tena (2B, AFL East Fall-Stars): 0-1, K – Tena didn’t get the start either but came in to replace Brett Batty in the lineup and moved to second base. He made one play in the field that was pretty sharp and struck out on five pitches in his only at bat against a lefty.


Tiburones de La Guaira 5, Tigres de Aragua 0

Brayan Rocchio (SS, Tiburones de La Guaira): 3-5, 2B, R, SB – After a couple of tough days following his brilliant winter start, Rocchio flashed his major upside again here contributing in all facets of the game including this brilliant twist/throw as the shortstop in a double play turn.


Tigres del Licey 8, Gigantes del Cibao 5

Jose Fermin (PR – Gigantes del Cibao): No PA, R – Fermin pinch ran for Edwin Espinal in the eighth inning and scored a run but didn’t play a position after.

Liga Profesional de Beisbol de Colombia

Vaqueros de Monteria 3, Tigres de Cartagena 2

Dayan Frias (2B, Vaqueros de Monteria): 0-3, K – Frias made his Colombian league debut at second and went hitless. When I went to look up the box score it immediately translated to English and it was Dayan COLD in the box score, which was funny.

Caimanes de Barranquilla 3, Gigantes de Barranquilla 2

Harold Ramirez (DH, Caimanes de Barranquilla): 1-2, 2B, R, BB – Ramirez also made his Colombian debut and it went better than Frias’. How many more of these winter league AFL updates will include Ramirez? We’ll see next week on the 40 man roster deadline on November 19.
