Franmil Reyes underwent successful knee surgery in San Diego on Thursday and everything went well. He will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks, but should be at full strength when the spring season starts in late February.

There were several players in action on Thursday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events:

Dominican winter league

Franchy Cordero– (1-2) 2 BB, K

The athletic outfielder hit a double on Thursday and walked twice. His average is up to .321 on the season for the Leones.

Fernando Tatis Jr.– (1-4) 2B, K

Tatis hit in the leadoff spot on Thursday and doubled in four at-bats. His average is at .262 for the season for the Estrellas.

Francisco Mejia– (0-4)

Tatis’ teammate in the D.R. is Mejia. He was starting behind the dish on Thursday, but went hitless. His average is at .231 so far this season.

Mexican winter league

Gerardo Reyes– 1 IP, K

The right-handed pitcher remained perfect with another scoreless inning on Thursday. He has had a very strong year in Mexico.

Puerto Rican winter league
