Arizona Fall League: Surprise - SEASON OVER
16-16, 2.0 GB

The Rafters finished with a .500 mark, two games behind the division-winning Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League's West Division.

Mexican Pacific League

No Rangers appeared on Thursday.

Venezuelan Winter League

Magallanes shortstop Elvis Andrus was 0-for-2 with a base on balls on Thursday evening.

Dominican Winter League

Left fielder Julio Borbon (.262/.311/.345) had a pair of singles in four at-bats.

Esteban German singled once and walked once in five trips. He also stole his ninth base of the winter.

Alexi Ogando pitched for the second consecutive day, tossing two scoreless innings.

The 26-year-old Ogando is one of the two pitchers [along with Omar Beltre] that has been relegated to the Dominican Republic for the last few years because of a marriage fraud scandal. Both pitchers seem unlikely to ever make it back to the U.S.

Ogando, a 6-foot-4 righty, has a fastball that reaches the upper-90s. He is having success against upper-minors and big league competition in the Dominican this winter, as he has yielded just three runs in eight innings of work.

Puerto Rican Winter League

No Rangers appeared on Thursday.

Australian Claxton Shield

Five Australian teams are competing for the Claxton Shield. Two Rangers are represented in Aaron Thompson (Queensland) and Tim Stanford (New South Wales).

In two appearances with the Queensland Rams, the right-hander Thompson has allowed two runs on three hits in one inning, walking zero and striking out one.

Stanford has not yet begun playing for NSW.
