In the Dominican on Friday night, Gregory Polanco started at DH for the third straight game and he went 1-for-3 with a single, RBI and a hit-by-pitch. Polanco was the DH again on Saturday and he went 0-for-4. Through five games, he is 2-for-20 with a HBP, no walks and three strikeouts.

Stephen Alemais was injured the other day making a highlight reel play. He suffered a dislocated right shoulder. His team announced on Friday that he can’t throw for 7-10 days, then he should resume baseball activities if all goes well.
We finally have a date for Gigantes del Cibao to play their first game since last Thursday. They are tentatively scheduled to play on Monday night. I say tentative because this is the third restart date for them.
In Mexico on Friday, Fabricio Macias went 1-for-5 with his fifth double and two RBIs. He also picked up an outfield assist. On Saturday he had a rough night, going 0-for-5. He is now hitting .247/.287/.342 in 26 games, with five doubles, two triples, one homer, 4-for-4 in steals and a 3:23 BB/SO ratio.
Action began in Colombia on Saturday night. The roster for Caimanes de Barranquilla, which is managed by DSL Pirates manager Jose Mosquera, has Francisco Acuna and Santiago Florez, along with a ton of former Pirates, including Harold Ramirez and Tito Polo. The league website isn’t up, but I should be able to get stats for the Pirates there on a regular basis. Acuna went 2-for-4 in the opener, with a double, two runs scored, an RBI and a walk.
That’s all for now, other leagues start in December.
