Since being injured in a car accident on December 1st, Jimmy Paredes has only appeared in one game for the Gigantes team. On December 8th, he played four innings before leaving the game with what the team twitter feed characterized as back problems. He hasn't been back in the line-up since (including Tuesday's All-Star Game) and I haven't seen any further news.
Escogido over Gigantes 6-5
RHP Rhiner Cruz pitched a perfect 7th inning for the Gigantes with one strikeout. *RHP Enerio del Rosario did not fare quite so well. After having his only two batters reach base via a walk and a force attempt/error, del Rosario was lifted from the game without recording an out. Both of his runners scored on a grand slam later in the inning.
