Venezuelan Winter League


Caribes leadoff hitter Endy Chavez, who is batting .281, was 1-for-4 with a single and a base on balls.



Dominican Winter League

The Toros earned yet another victory on Tuesday, winning in walkoff fashion this time. Designated hitter Esteban German had one single and one walk in four trips, raising his postseason average to .259.



Puerto Rican Winter League

No Rangers played on Tuesday.



Mexican Pacific League


The league began its second round on Tuesday, but no Rangers appeared in the games.

A number of former Rangers farmhands did play in the two games, including Jason Botts, Jason Bourgeois, Victor Diaz, Marshall McDougall, Nick Bierbrodt, and Luis Mendoza.



Liga Paralela (Venezuela Minor League)

The Bravos took home the 2010 Liga Paralela title with a best-of-three series victory over Caracas. The season concluded on December 22.

That Caracas club featured 19-year-old shortstop Edwin Garcia, who appeared in 23 games and went 15-for-66 (.227) with four doubles and a home run. He had 13 walks against only nine strikeouts.

Anzoategui hurler Jonathan Rojas shined over three starts, tossing 10 scoreless innings. The 22-year-old allowed three hits while walking two and striking out seven. Rojas doesn't have any state-side experience above the rookie level, but his strong performance earned him two appearances with the LVBP Caribes team.

David Paisano and Renny Osuna turned in impressive performances with the big La Guaira club in '09, but both were largely relegated to Liga Paralela this year after early season slumps.

Paisano played 25 games in Liga Paralela and hit .283 (30-for-106) with nine doubles, six walks, and five stolen bases in eight attempts.

The versatile Osuna played just about all over the diamond––appearing in 21 contests––and posted a .280/.314/.512 slash line with nine doubles, two triples, and two round-trippers in 87 plate appearances.

Lefty reliever Joe Ortiz pitched most of the campaign with the LVBP team but hurled three scoreless innings in three minor league relief appearances.
