The Peoria Javelinas are 10-6 now on the season after an 11-5 victory over the Salt Rivers Rafters on Saturday.
There were several other players in action on the day throughout the globe.
Here is a recap:
Arizona Fall League
Austin Allen– (1-4) 2B, Run, BB
The catcher is hitting .258 on the year now in Arizona. He was batting in the cleanup position for the Javelinas and has displayed some improved defense behind the plate so far. Allen should be protected in the upcoming Rule 5 draft.
Blake Rogers– 1.1 IP, 3 H, 2 K (31 pitches/21 strikes)
The right-handed pitcher remains perfect in his first two appearances in the AFL. He looks to maintain his 0.00 ERA for at least the next few showings in the desert. Rogers will be in the bullpen in Double-A or Triple-A this season and is only a phone call away.
Dauris Valdez– 1 IP, 1 BB, 3 K (18 pitches/10 strikes)
Valdez throws some serious gas and he lowered his ERA to 3.00 on the year in Peoria. If he can be more consistent with his offspeed pitch, he could be a key contributor down the road for the Padres.
Mexican winter league
Gerardo Reyes– 1 IP
The hard-throwing right-hander still has 0.00 ERA for the Yaquis de Obregon in Mexico. He is throwing well in Mexico and is nearly ready for major league action. 2019 could be a huge year for this pitcher.
Chris Huffman– 4.1 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K (93 pitches- 50 strikes)
The right-handed pitcher has a 4.32 ERA so far for the Caneros de los Mochis. Huffman has an outside chance for a major league appearance at some point in 2019 with the Padres.
Venezuelan winter league
Edward Olivares– (0-3) K
The outfielder has played on most days for the Tigres and is hitting .263 on the year. Olivares will be Rule 5 eligible in December and is on the cusp of needing protection.
Dominican winter league
Diego Goris– (3-4) 2 Runs
The veteran minor leaguer is hitting .333 so far for the Aguilas Cibaenas in the D.R. Goris will probably start the 2019 season in El Paso and provide some corner infield depth for the Chihuahuas.
Eric Yardley– 1 IP, 2 H, Run, BB
I jinxed the sidearm pitcher yesterday, as I congratulated Eric on his solid performance so far in the Dominican. He tells me that he loves playing there, and especially under the coaching of Storm manager Edwin Rodriguez. He has 1.59 ERA so far this season after allowing his first run of the season on Saturday.
