Minor League Update

International Winter League Games of December 10

by Jeff Moore


Prospect of the Day: Jesus Aguilar, 1B, Indians (Leones del Caracas, VWL): 3-4, 3 R, 2 HR, K. Well, it’s officially in Venezuela this winter. Aguilar was already putting on an impressive power performance, then he went off and hit his 15th and 16th home runs on Tuesday. As we’ve seen this winter, right-handed power is at a premium in baseball right now, so if his hit tool can play at all, the Indians will find a spot for him.

The Good

  • Francisco Peguero, CF, Orioles (Gigantes del Cibao, DWL): 3-5, 2 R, HR. The Orioles are excited about their newest outfielder, signed just this offseason after being DFA’d by the Giants. The O’s shouldn’t expect a ton of power like this from him, however, as he’s been more tools and athleticism to this point than actual production and doesn’t project to have much power anyway.
  • Rudy Owens, LHP, Astros (Gigantes del Cibao, DWL): 5 IP, H, 3 BB, 4 K. The Astros left-hander added another chapter to his strong winter, as he continues to limit hard-hit balls. Owens has historically limited hits well in his career despite less-than-premium velocity, but still profiles as a back-end starter. On the Astros, however, that’s enough to get a shot.
