Winter Leagues: Playoff Action from Four Countries Over the Last Three Days

Three days worth of winter league action, though not much happened on Monday and Wednesday. We start with the only two players to see action on Monday night.

In Venezuela, Jose Osuna (pictured above) went 0-for-4.

In Colombia, Edgar Barrios went 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored in his team’s 15-5 loss.


In Venezuela, Jose Osuna was the DH and went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts. Through five playoff games, he is 5-for-20 at the plate. Three of those hits came during the playoff opener.

In Puerto Rico, Rodolfo Castro was the DH and he went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. His team had just two hits in a 4-0 shutout loss. Castro is 1-for-6 through three playoff games.

Jordan Jess pitched in relief a week after starting the playoff opener. He faced two batters, allowing a single and a walk. Neither run scored. Jess threw three shutout innings in his start last week.

In Colombia, Carlos Arroyo went 1-for-3 with a run scored in his team’s 4-3 win.

Edgar Barrios was on the losing side of the lone playoff game in Colombia. He started at shortstop and went 1-for-2 with a single before leaving for a pinch-hitter. He is 3-for-16 through five playoff games.


In Colombia, Carlos Arroyo was the only player of note to see action, as three of the other leagues were off. He went 0-for-3 in his team’s 2-0 loss. Arroyo is now 3-for-17 through five games.
