Winter League Action: Fmart, Padilla, Casanova

An article by posted on January 4, 2009

The Mexico League, Venezuela League, PR League and the DR League all have playoffs going on right now which mean there are plenty of Mets, former Mets and minor League Mets that remain in action and several Mets had big nights last night. The first one is Fmart, who had an excellent Regular Winter Season this year in the DR continued to hit his stride with the Venenzuela League (for Caracas). Last night he went 2-4, scored 3 runs, hit a double, a home run, and an RBI. I can’t wait to see what he does with the rest of the Winter Season.

Padilla picked up a win last night for Ponce in the PR league pitching an inning, 2 hits, one run, no earned runs and a strike out. I never know how to view Padilla. He has always seemed to be a “4A” player to me, but if a Met has a good performance it is worthy of note. Also in the PR league, Casanova had a huge night for Caguas. Casanova spent a lot of time in the system last year as an aging catcher, but he had a good spring and he came up to the majors for a bit when it seemed that every catcher on the Mets roster couldn’t stay healthy to save their lives. Last night he went 2-3 with 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, and 2 BB. Thats about as good of a night as one can have. Casanova right now is currently a Free Agent.
