Rangers Winterball Roundup – 11/27

Navegantes del Magallanes outfielder Joey Butler socked his first home run in Venezuela of the winterball season on Sunday. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of the day's winterball action in the Texas Rangers' system.

Venezuelan Winter League


Right fielder Joey Butler (.306/.432/.528) continues to heat up near the top of the Navegantes del Magallanes batting order. Hitting second on Sunday, Butler went 2-for-4 with a big three-run homer––his first in 11 contests. He also walked.

Through those 11 games, Butler is 11-for-36 (.306) with three doubles, a triple, a homer, seven walks, and seven strikeouts.

Lara's Guilder Rodriguez saw action as a pinch runner in the top of the ninth inning.



Dominican Winter League


Engel Beltre went 0-for-2 with a walk and a sacrifice bunt, batting ninth and playing center field for Licey. The 22-year-old Beltre has now drawn five walks with 46 official at-bats thus far.



Mexican Pacific League


No Rangers appeared on Sunday.



Puerto Rican Winter League


Ponce catcher Kevin Torres entered as a defensive substitution in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he didn't get a plate appearance. It was Torres' first game action since November 6, when he struck out in his lone plate appearance.

The 21-year-old Torres is coming off a strong season with the rookie-level Surprise Rangers in which he posted a .345/.433/.500 slash line in 51 games.



Liga Paralela (Venezuela Minor League)


There were no games on Sunday.
