All statistics are for the week ending Friday.

Cesar Puello finally got some playing this week and he did not disappoint, in fact he broke out. He went 11-25 with 4 home runs, 8 RBI and also had 3 stolen bases. Puello has all the tools to be successful, he just needs consistent playing time.

Wilmer Flores isn’t letting all the Tulo talk affect him and continued his strong winter going 8-26 with a HR and 4 RBI. His overall winter line is now at .309/.356/.456.

*** This just in: Flores is already off to a big follow-up week, hitting two homers on Saturday and another one tonight. In the two games he had five hits, five runs, and six RBI. Hat tip to John Dreker.

 

Xorge Carrillo just will not stopping crushing the baseball, the supposedly defensive minded backstop went 7-16 with 3 doubles and 3 RBI. Boosting his winter league line to .283/.350/.522.

T.J. Rivera had another quiet week going 2-14 with only one RBI, however he is still hitting over .300 this winter.

Johnny Monell had a solid week going 4-11 with a double and 2 runs scored.

Jon Velasquez made two appearances, throwing 1.1 innings of scoreless ball and picking up a save.
