Detroit Tigers Winter Ball: Winding Down

After three months of offseason action, the winter leagues are finally winding down. Pitchers and catchers report to MLB camp in about a month, but there’s still business to be done, and there are still a handful of Tigers minor leaguers playing in meaningful games.

Dominican Republic Professional Baseball League (LIDOM) - The LIDOM championship series went the distance, with the Tigres del Licey winning 6-2 on Saturday night to take the series five games to four over Juan Perez’s Aguilas Cibaenas. Perez had a bit of a disappointing final week, going 4-for-19 with a triple, two RBIs, and four strikeouts. He finishes the LIDOM playoffs ranked second in batting average at .367, and fifth in OPS at .865.

Australian Baseball League - The ABL regular season came to a close this weekend, with only Jack O’Loughlin’s Adelaide Bite getting a chance to move on into the playoffs. O’Loughlin returned to his team after a brief stint with Australia’s U18 squad, giving up nine hits and two earned runs over 4 2/3 innings last week. Fellow pitcher Warwick Saupold shook off a disastrous week to finish his season on a high note, needing just 13 pitches to complete two perfect innings and record his fourth save of the season. Meanwhile, outfielder Ulrich Bojarski concluded his first season of pro action with a steady week, going 3-for-12 with an RBI, a walk, and three strikeouts.
