ATF: December 14
- Steven Wright (SP, Chiriqui Roneros): 6.0 IP, 8 H, 2 R/ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 0 HR. Wright and his Roneros teammates went out in style winning Game 6 of the Panama Winter League Finals Series by a final score of 4-2. It was a fitting end to have Wright on the mound for the final game of the league’s season as he was arguably the best pitcher in the league after pitching well during the regular season (3-0, 1.39 ERA, 32.1 IP) and playoffs (1-0, 0.71 ERA, 12.2 IP). A nice finish to Wright’s 2011, and hopefully a stepping stone to a good 2012.
- Eric Berger (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 0 HR. Berger bounced back from his first blemish on December 10th with a shutout inning of relief on Wednesday night. The most impressive thing so far has been the one walk allowed in 5.0 innings over 5 outings. Walks have gotten him into trouble the past two seasons, so hopefully he can keep up what he is doing in limiting the walks.
- Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-4, R, BB, K. Carrera has a hit in each of his last two games, but even still he is just 2-for-17 at the plate in his last 5 games. He is playing every day and is going to rack up over 200 plate appearances in winter ball this offseason. Good for him (wish some other roster tweeners would follow suit).
- Asdrubal Cabrera (DH, Leones del Caracas): 1-for-3, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K. Cabrera broke out of his 4 game hitless streak and 0-for-11 stretch in a big way by getting on base in 2 of his 5 plate appearances and rapping a 2-run homer to dead center in the 6th inning to tie the game at 4-4.
