The Undercards: Hak-Ju Lee Hot, Everyone Else... Not

Short version of the Undercards today because 1) there were very many games played by Rays prospects on Monday 2) every Rays prospect other than Hak-Ju Lee had a terrible day Monday and 3) I’m writing with my power out in a Hurricane Sandy-affected area and who knows when my wifi is going to go out. Here we go.

Arizona Fall League: Salt River Rafters 9, Phoenix Desert Dogs 2

The Desert Dogs got killed. Hak-Ju Lee did go 2 for 4 with a run scored, but Tim Beckham went 0 for 4 and Chris Rearick allowed 2 runs on 5 hits in just 1.1 innings of work. The Nationals’ Ryan Perry (the former reliever for the Tigers) went 5 innings of 1-hit ball, striking out 3 while walking none, to earn the win for Salt River.

Dominican Winter League: Estrellas de Oriente 9, Gigantes del Cibao 6

Rhyne Hughes went 0 for 3 with a walk for Cibao in this one, which was highlighted by two home runs by ex-Giants outfielder Todd Linden and another one the Reds’ Denis Phipps for Oriente and one 2-run homer each the Brewers’ Jean Segura along with Marlins prospect Marcell Ozuna for the Gigantes.

Aguilas Cibaenas 2, Leones Del Escogido 0

As you can see in this one, pitching dominated as free right-hander Miguel Batista and ex-Royals right-hander Tony Pena Jr. combined on 6 shutout innings for Cibaenas to outduel 5 innings of 1-run ball by Edward Valdez, a former Reds prospect. Omar Luna went 0 for 4 for Cibaenas while ex-Rays infielder Julio Lugo went 1 for 1 as a pinch-hitter for Escogido.
