New minor league signees Yangervis Solarte and Luis Hernandez both appeared for Aragua in the Venezuelan Winter League on Wednesday. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of the day's winterball action in the Texas Rangers' system.

Venezuelan Winter League

Yangervis Solarte got the start at second base for the Tigres de Aragua and went 0-for-3 with a strikeout, as his team was limited to just a single run on four hits. Solarte is now batting .294 with six walks and three strikeouts in 17 winterball games.

Aragua’s Luis Hernandez, who was also recently signed to a minor league deal by the Rangers, was 0-for-1 with two walks. He also committed two errors at shortstop.

Dominican Winter League

Julio Borbon (.156/.257/.281) got his second start in as many days, batting leadoff for Escogido and playing in left field. He had a single and an RBI in three at-bats before exiting for a pinch hitter in the sixth inning. He was also caught stealing for the first time this winterball season.

After going without a hit in his previous nine contests, Borbon has now hit safely in each of his last three games.

Although left-handed reliever Corey Young signed with the Leones del Escogido and is listed on the roster, he has yet to appear in a game with the club.
