Astros Playing Winter Ball in Puerto Rico

Regular season play in Puerto Rico ended on Tuesday with Wednesday's makeup game cancelled. Here is how your Astros fared:

C Carlos Corporan
Corporan hit .228/.257/.359 with TWELVE DOUBLES in 27 games for Carolina. He walked three times and struck out 20 times.

C Jobduan Morales
Also playing for Carolina, Morales hit .179/.281/.214 with two doubles in 23 games. He walked eight times and struck out 14 times.

2B Nolan Fontana
Fontana, whose 2014 season ended early due to a broken finger, played for the San Juan team, last playing on November 28th. In 11 games, he hit .129/.243/.194 with one triple. He walked four times, struck out seven times and stole two bases.

OF Edwin Medina
Also playing for San Juan was Edwin Medina (33rd round draft pick in 2014). Medina got very limited playing time. In eight games (eight at-bats), he hit .125/.125/.125, struck out twice and stole one base.

C Roberto Pena
Pena appeared for the Caguas team, hitting .167/.219/.183 with one double in 20 games. He walked three times and struck out nine times.

LHP Luis Cruz
Cruz started five games for Caguas, going 0-2 with a 5.48 ERA and a 1.453 WHIP in 21.1 innings. He walked six batters and struck out 20.

OF Ruben Sosa
After finishing his season playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic, Sosa scurried on over to Puerto Rico to get in three more games for Santurce in which he hit .300/.364/.300 with two stolen bases, one walk and three strikeouts.

RHP Travis Ballew
Travis Ballew was headed to play in Panama and somehow ended up in Puerto Rico instead. Ballew appeared out of the bullpen for Santurce in four games and was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.846 WHIP in 4.1 innings. He walked three batters and struck out four.

RHP Juan Santos
Santos (the Astros 39th draft pick in 2013) appeared in one game (0.1IP) for Santurce on November 9th and let's just say that it did not go well and leave it at that.

We still have Astros playing in Australia and Panama.
