The San Diego Padres winter league report for December 21.
There are a few men in action throughout the globe on Saturday night for the Padres.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.
Dominican Winter League
Franchy Cordero– (1-2) 2 Runs, BB
San Diego Padres’ outfielder Franchy Cordero scored two runs and singled in a 1-for-2 day at the plate for Escogido in the Dominican Republic. Health is a big concern for the left-handed hitter, but he has been able to play consistently for the Leones. The Padres will hope that continues in 2020.
Manuel Margot– (0-5) 2 K
Margot played center field and batted leadoff for the Toros on Saturday. He went 0-for-5 in the game and has not hit well in the D.R. this season. The Padres desire that his offensive issues resolve themself as Margot plays a terrific defensive center field.
Puerto Rican Winter League
No players in action
Mexican Winter League
Esteban Quiroz– (2-4) Run, RBI, BB
The short infielder is hitting .254 on the year for Los Mochis. He played second base on Saturday and went 2-for-4 with a run scored. Quiroz has been batting in the cleanup spot for his team in Mexico as “Pony” displays power potential. The Mexican ball player will likely get an invite to major league camp this spring.
Australian Baseball League
Jonny Homza– (2-2) 2 BB, 2 Runs
The converted infielder has been catching mostly for the Tuatara. He has also played third base in Australia this season. Homza has recorded a .263 batting average this year for Auckland and went 2-for-2 on Saturday night. He should start the 2020 season in Fort Wayne and is an interesting prospect.
Jarryd Dale– (2-4) Run
Dale is swinging a better bat in Australia. He went 2-for-4 on Saturday while playing second base for the Melbourne Aces. The right-handed hitting infielder now has a .140 batting average on the season in his return back to his homeland.
Taylor Kohlwey– (1-4) 2B
Kohlwey has been very impressive for the Cavalry, and he went 1-for-4 in a doubleheader on Saturday. He now has a .317 batting average for Canberra. The left-handed bat is starting to progress, and he could be a viable prospect in the coming season. Kohlwey has played all over the outfield in the ABL this season.
