Arizona Fall and Winter League Recaps - 10/27


Salt River over Mesa 12-6
3B Bobby Borchering was 1-for-4 with a walk, a strikeout and (thank goodness) a two-run home run. Borchering has been struggling mightily, hitting only .121 in nine games. 1B Jon Singleton went 2-for-5 with a strikeout and scored a run. Jio Mier got the start for Mesa at second base and then switched to short in a late game defensive move. Mier was 1-for-4 with a two-RBI double and a strikeout.

No game today.


La Guaira over Caribes 8-2
Jake Goebbert showed up on the Caribes roster last night. He went 0-for-4 as the DH in his first Venezuelan winter league appearance.

Lara over Caracas 4-2
Brandon Barnes got another start in left field for Caracas and went 2-for-5 with two strikeouts and he scored both of Caracas' runs.

Magallanes over Aragua 6-5
2B Jose Martinez went 2-for-4 for Aragua and scored two runs.


Gigantes over Licey 6-1
DH Jimmy Paredes was 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a strikeout, and he scored a run for the Gigantes.

Aguilas over Toros 3-2
Jonathan Villar was 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter for Aguilas. RHP Aneury Rodriguez got the start (and the loss) for the Toros as he allowed two runs on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts in three innings pitched.


  1. What was the score between Leones & Estrellas?

  2. Estrellas won 8-7. I don't normally cover the games unless there's an Astros major or minor league player playing in the game so that's why that wasn't included.

  3. Jorge de Leon plays with Jethawks & is in 40 man roster

  4. Plays for the Leones

  5. Jorge de Leon may be on the roster, but he hasn't played for them yet this season. Some who are on the roster may not play at all and some may play later in the season. If he pitches, I will cover it in a recap.
