Winter Leagues: Liover Peguero Homers

We posted a preview of the winter leagues for the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday. Here’s a recap of Sunday’s action.

Liover Peguero homered on Sunday, which can be seen below. He went 2-for-5 with a single, walk, run scored and two RBIs. He was 0-for-4 in the opener, with a stolen base.

Here’s the video:

Endy Rodriguez went 1-for-2 with a walk in the season opener on Saturday. On Sunday, he went 1-for-3 and scored the lone run of the game in his team’s 1-0 victory.

In Mexico, Jared Oliva had his second three-hit game of the winter, going 3-for-4 with a run. He’s 8-for-18 in five games.

Fabricio Macias went 2-for-4 with a run scored, walk and a stolen base. He’s hitting .409 with a 1.071 OPS through five games.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.

Endy has also caught all 17 innings his team has played in the first 2 games. 0 E/PB, 1 CS. I think his team is the youngest in the DWL and have a few other very young prospects playing.
