In all, Perez went 1.1 innings, giving up six runs on six hits. He walked one and fanned one. The southpaw worked a scoreless first inning and retired the first hitter he faced in the second. But Perez’s outing ended after he surrendered three consecutive doubles, a walk, and two straight singles.
The Tiburones de La Guaira (La Guaira Sharks) are always filled with a handful of Rangers farmhands. This winter is no different. Shortstop

The 20-year-old Ortiz had an excellent season at Single-A Hickory this year, posting a 1.50 ERA while striking out 59 versus only five walks in 42 innings. Ortiz misses bats and dominates lefties with a sharp slider that he commands extremely well.
