Carlos Peguero Profile
Mariners outfielder Carlos Peguero continued his hot swinging with a 3-5 day at the plate on 10/30 including a double, a home run and 3 RBI. The 24-year-old is now hitting .354/.415/.792 with 6 doubles, 5 HR and 11 RBI through 12 games for Gigantes del Cibao. The only downside of that is the fact that Peguero has also struck out 15 times--his big handicap as a hitter. If he continues to mash at this pace, the strikeouts won't matter, but in reality, this type of production likely can't continue with his strikeout rate well over 30%.
