I hope to provide a summary every couple of weeks of how Twins players are doing in the fall/winter leagues. This is a hope, not a promise. It's all small sample sizes, so I wouldn't recommend making too much of any of it.
Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. shows he's too good to be playing in the AFL. The Venezuelan League gets underway and Willians Astudillo celebrates by drawing a walk. The Mexican League also gets underway.
A listing of how our Twins lads fared in winter leagues. I'm listing batters with at least thirty at-bats and pitchers with at least ten innings. Batters are listed in order of OPS and pitchers are listed in order of ERA.
Kennys Vargas (Aguilas, Dominican and Mayaguez, Puerto RIcan): .245/.394/.480 in 102 at-bats.
Logan Wade (Brisbane, Australian): .282/.333/.523 in 149 at-bats.
