In Venezuela, Jose Osuna appealed his six game suspension and was able to play on Wednesday night. He went 1-for-4 with his 13th double. It sounds like he is the favorite to win the Rookie of the Year with just a short time left in the regular season. He is hitting .328/.390/.503 in 54 games.
Elias Diaz went 2-for-4 with a run scored. He is hitting .247 through 22 games, with a .737 OPS.

In the Dominican, Mel Rojas Jr. went 1-for-4 with a run scored. He showed off some tools, stealing his fifth base and picking up a huge outfield assist.
