Venezuelan Winter League Update

The Venezuelan Winter League is still going on, despite the lack of participation by many players in the major leagues and minor leagues because of the economic chaos that exists there. Below is the list of players myworld has noticed.

Zulia Aguilas (9-3)

The lack of pitching in the Venezuelan League appears apparent with Olmo Rosario (.476) and Yosmany Guerra (.410) hitting like Ted Williams. Angel Reyes (.395) falls just short of .400. All three players have an OPS of over 1.000.

Ramon Garcia is on another level (1.10 ERA) in the pitching department. In three starts he has given up just five hits in 16.1 innings. The opposition is hitting him at a .094 clip. Despite this dominance he has yet to strike out more than one hitter in each of his three outings.

Lara Cardnales (8-4)

Yojhan Quevedo is hitting .486. That leads the league in hitting.

Margarita Bravos (6-6)

No one myworld could get excited about.

Aragua Tigres (6-6)

Tiago Da Silva has pitched in six games of relief and gotten two wins and three saves. He has yet to give up a run in his 6.2 innings.

Anzo√°tegui Caribes (5-7)

Denis Phipps is mashing the ball with five homeruns and 15 RBIs, both numbers tops in the league. He is hitting .350 with a 13/12 walk to whiff ratio, putting his OBA at .509. Niuman Romero makes for a good one/two punch in the order with his .367 average. His .612 slugging percentage is third in the league.

Magallanes Navegantes (5-7)

Anthony Pereira is hitting .467, which is third in the league. None of his 14 hits have gone for extra bases.

La Guair√° Tiburones (5-7)

Gregory Infante has saved five games, which means he has salvaged all of their wins.

Caracas Leones (4-8)

Despite the last place standing Francisco Carillo (0.77 ERA) and Enrique de los Rios (1.08 ERA) have pitched well in four starts, combining to go 2-0.
