Minor League Update

International Winter League Games of January 6

by Jeff Moore


Hitter of the Night

Joey Terdoslavich, 1B, Braves (Aguilas Cibaenas, DWL): 4-5, K. Terdoslavich continues a solid winter with a great showing in the Dominican playoffs. He’s not a high-end prospect, but I believe in the bat if used properly, and he should be on a veteran-laden Braves team that doesn’t need him to start.

The Good

  • Francisco Peguero, CF, Orioles (Gigantes del Cibao, DWL): 1-4, R, HR. Peguero now has six home runs this winter in an uncharacteristic show of power.
  • Engel Beltre, CF, Rangers (Tigres del Licey, DWL): 3-4, 2 R, 2B, 3B. Beltre is in the mix for playing time in the Rangers outfield this spring and will get his share of it because of his defensive abilities. If he hits at all, he could steal a decent portion.
  • Eduardo Escobar, SS, Twins (Caribes de Anzoategui, VWL): 3-4, R, HR, BB. As an all-glove infielder, Escobar should fit in well with the Twins. It’s his defensive versatility, not his bat, however, that will keep him in the majors.
  • Ender Inciarte, CF, Diamondbacks (Aguilas del Zuila, VWL): 3-5, R, 2B. Inciarte has controlled the strike zone well this winter, which is exactly what he needs to do to be successful on offense. Balls in play are his friend, and that coupled with plus defense and base running could make for a useful player.

Still Tickin’
