- Jordany Valdespin played two games this week, going a combined 0-for-6 to drop his winter line to .308/.419/.577 with three extra-base hits, and five walks against four strikeouts in eight games. He's played two games at second base and four in rightfield and his last three games at DH for the Tigres del Licey in the Domincan Winter League. The DWL is hitting .265/.339/.408.
Low Playing Time Position Guys in the DWLThe following guys are on rosters, but are not playing very much at all.
- Francisco Pena - Aguilas Cibaenas – This week: 2-7. Overall: 5-for-18, (.278/.381/.611), 2 HR, 2 BB, 0 K, 1 SB (!)
For completeness, I will point out that Rafael Fernandez (Gigantes del Cibao - DWL), Juan Carlos Gamboa (Caneros de los Mochis - Mexican Pacific League), Oswaldo Navarro (Cardenales de Lara - VWL), Raul Reyes (Gigantes del Cibao - DWL) and Pedro Zapata (Leones del Escogido - DWL) are all playing a little bit for their respective teams. However, I do not regard any of these players as prospects whose future will impact the Mets. I don't write about them much during the season, I'm not going to start in October and November.
PitchersThe Mets still have relatively few pitchers in the Caribbean leagues at the moment.
- Armando Rodriguez – Leones del Escogido - DWL - Allowed one unearned run, his first, in 3.2 innings of relief this week. He's fanned seven and walked two in 5.1 innings overall.
