Around the Farm: November 18
- Andrew Campbell (DH, Brisbane Bandits): 0-for-3, BB, K. The ABL has an interesting schedule in that they only play games Thursday through Sunday and are off every Monday through Wednesday. As a result, a young player like Campbell has had limited playing time so far in the ABL where in 3 games he is just 1-for-8 at the plate.
- Giovanni Soto (RP, Gigantes de Carolina): 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K. Soto bent but did not break as he allowed two baserunners in his two innings or work. He has pitched well overall in 5 outings so far in Puerto Rico allowing 1 run in 5.0 innings.
- Joseph Colon (RP, Leones de Ponce): 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K. Colon’s second appearance in Puerto Rico and his first since November 6th. That’s the life of a young prospect playing winter ball as the opportunities can often be few and bar in between.
- Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 1-for-4, R, K. It was a tough day for Valbuena to play as he learned he had been dropped from the big league roster. But as disappointing as it was, he has the opportunity to be picked up off waivers by another team so he needs to continue to showcase his abilities.
- Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-4. Carrera’s bat is still stalled and needs a jumpstart as he is now just 5-for-29 in his last 7 games.
