While Major League Baseball has been over for more than a month at this point, there are still plenty of guys playing baseball. The Arizona Fall League is completed, but that still leaves five leagues going strong around the world. Let’s take a look at the guys from the organization that are playing still.
Who’s playing well
Felix Perez was someone that many fans wanted to see the team call up early in the season to help out with the bench after getting off to a strong start in Louisville. He cooled off as the season went along though and finished by hitting .280 for the Bats. Now in the Venezuelan Winter League the Cuban outfielder has been raking, hitting .356/.377/.568 for Caracas. He’s been very productive though it’s come with pretty poor plate discipline as he has just five walks and 34 strikeouts.
Sebastion Elizalde is playing at home in the Mexican Winter League. The outfielder is hitting .310/.363/.475 in 158 at-bats and is 7th in the league in OPS. That only places him third among Reds players in the league though. Donald Lutz is in 6th place on the OPS list in the league with a line of .278/.365/.479 on the season in 169 at-bats. Marquez Smith is 2nd in the league with a .270/.357/.553 line over 159 at-bats. He’s leading the league in extra-base hits as well.
Dylan Axelrod is pitching in the Dominican Winter League this offseason and has a 3.23 ERA in 30.2 innings. He has seven walks and 23 strikeouts in that time and has allowed just two home runs. The league ERA in 3.89.
The rest of the Reds
Here is how everyone else has performed thus far in winter league play.
