Max Ramirez remains a Rangers prospect for the time being, and he continued hitting for power in Venezuela on Monday night.

The first baseman was 1-for-2 with a solo home run and three walks. The round-tripper was his 13th of the winter, and he once again tied Zuila's Ernesto Mejia for the league lead.

Ramirez also ranks first in the league in strikeouts (60) by a longshot. He is fifth in the circuit with 34 free passes.

Renny Osuna entered the game as a pinch runner for Ramirez, but he didn't get a plate appearance.

Dominican Winter League

There were no games on Monday.

Puerto Rican Winter League

No Rangers appeared on Monday.

Stanford has not yet begun playing for NSW.
