FCL G2 L 0-1

Eduardo Vaughan, CF: 1-3, 1 K, 1 E

Freddy Valdez, RF: 0-2, 1 K

Ryan Zeferjahn (SP): 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K

It was a tough day for the FCL squad, who dropped both ends of their doubleheader, though the starting pitchers came through. For Zeferjahn, it was his second start at the complex after being taken off Salem’s roster in mid-July. The righty had struggled early in the year in full-season ball, giving up too much contact and watching his ERA get up above 6.00. He’s been better in his two starts with the FCL squad, but he’s still probably someone who should be converted to the bullpen for next season. Meanwhile, De La Rosa, who came over from the Royals as a player to be named later in the Andrew Benintendi trade, has a 3.57 ERA over 22 23 innings, but with a slightly less encouraging 15 to eight K/BB.

DSL Red L 4-5

Luis Ravelo, SS: 1-3

Miguel Bleis, CF: 0-3

Enderso Lira, C: 1-3, 1 R

Kelvin Diaz, RF: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 K

Francis Hernandez (SP; L): 3.1 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

DSL Blue W 4-3

Juan Chacon, RF: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 R

Alex Zapete, DH: 0-2, 2 BB, 1 RBI, 2 K

Ronny Ramirez, LF: 3-4, 1 R, 1 K

Jedixson Paez (SP; W): 5 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Railin Perez (SV): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Not a super eventful game down in the DSL on Monday, with a couple of close games but without standout performances. For the Blue squad, it was a nice day on the mound for Paez, who did allow some hits but limited the damage. Five of the seven hits were singles, with the other two being a double and a triple. After getting a $450,000 signing bonus back in January, he’s pitched to a 3.00 ERA this season over 39 innings, striking out 38 and walking eight. Meanwhile, more negatively, Bleis is struggling for the Red squad. The most highly-touted prospect on either of these teams, he has just two hits in his last five games.
