Minor League Update

International Winter League Games of January 10-12

by Jeff Moore


Friday, January 10th

  • Francisco Peguero, CF, Orioles (Gigantes del Cibao, DWL): 2-4, 2B, 2 K. Strong hand-eye coordination and an aggressive approach can lead to days like this, when Peguero puts together strong at-bats followed by poor ones. Inconsistency has been a character trait from the start with Peguero.
