Catching up on some Winter League stats

A few winter league observations:

Ian Kennedy is back home after pitching 34.2 innings over six starts in Puerto Rico. He went 2-2 with a 1.56 ERA. He allowed 19 hits, struck out 31, walked 12 and allowed one home run.

Guess who has a .408 OBP in the Dominican Winter League and has struck out only eight times in 83 at-bats? Melky Cabrera, that’s who. He and Brett Gardner would be an interesting competition in spring training if it comes to that.

Robinson Cano has driven in 15 runs in 17 games in the Dominican and has nine extra-base hits. He actually has more walks (seven) than strikeouts (five). Considering he walked 26 times in 634 plate appearances all last season, that’s a good sign.

Jonathan Albaladejo hasn’t allowed a run in 16 innings in Puerto Rico. His line: 16 11 0 0 2 11.
