The San Diego Padres had several players in action throughout the globe on Thursday.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.
Dominican Winter League
Manuel Margot– (1-5) 2B, Run, 2 K
Batting leadoff and playing centerfield, Margot went 1-for-5 with a double. He is hitting .143 on the year for the Toros de Este.
Ivan Castillo– (0-4)
Castillo went 0-for-4 on Thursday and is hitting .261 on the season. He played third base in the game and has performed all over the diamond for the Leones.
Franchy Cordero– (2-4) 2B, Run, RBI, K
Cordero doubled in four at-bats in the Dominican Republic. He recorded an outfield assist in the game. The left-handed hitter played centerfield and was batting cleanup for the Leones de Esgogido. He needs to stay healthy, and a positive showing in the D.R. would go a long way towards providing the outfielder with some confidence.
Webster Rivas– (0-3) RBI, K
The catcher went 0-for-3 and is hitting .152 on the season now in the Dominican Republic.
Puerto Rican Winter League
Michael Gettys– (0-4) 3 K
Gettys has been in a slump and is down to .194 on the season in Puerto Rico. He struck out three times in the game and played rightfield for the Indios de Mayaguez. He is still struggling bad with making contact and will need to get better to have any chance of a major league career.
Mexican Winter League
Esteban Quiroz– (1-4) BB, Run, K
