Shaun Doyle provided fansided readers with a great update on how a couple of our guys did in a recent game this week in the Arizona Fall League, but those aren’t the only guys playing Fall/Winter ball. Let’s take a look at how the rest of the Jays down south are progressing.
Liga Mexicana del Pacifico
Venados de Mazatlan
2B Ryan Schimpf is en llamas in the Mexicana League. He has even been able to takes some walks over the past couple games and now has 7 in 13 games. He has hit .351/.457/.514 with a HR and 4 RBI in his past 10 games. Could Ryan’s strong Fall be enough to erase his poor 2014?
Naranjeros de Hermosillo
SS Jorge Flores has cooled off a little, hitting .258/.343/.323 with 3 walks and 9 strike outs in his past 10 games. He is striking out too much for a guy that doesn’t hit for much poor. Let’s hope that it’s just a bead week.
Liga Venezuela Beisbol Professional
Bravos de Margarita
3B Andy Burns started off really well, but has gone hitless in his past 6 games and is hitting .167/.286/.167 in his past 10 games. He has not appeared in a game since October 22nd.
RHP Casey Lawrence in his only start this week, Lawrence pitched 4.0 innings, gave up 6 runs, issued one walk, and struck out one. He now has a record of 0-1, 3.77ERA in 3 starts.
Tiburones de La Guaira
RP Gregory Infante collected 2 saves and pitched 3.2 scoreless innings this week. In October 23rd game Infante pitched 1.2 innings, allowing one hit, a walk and struck out 4 of the 7 batters he faced. Gregory now has a record of 0-1, 3.68 ERA and 7K in 7.1IP.
Liga de Beisbol Dominicano
Toros del Este
1B Matt Hague the doubles machine hasn’t been getting too much work so far this Fall and has yet to hit a double. In 7GP, Hague is hitting .250/.292/.250 with no extra base hits and 7 RBI.
Gigantes del Cibao
INF Jonathan Diaz is really known for his offence, but has been on tear in his first 6 games. He has 8 singles and is hitting .364/.440/.364 with 2 RBI so far.
3B Andy Fermin just seem to land himself full-time reps. He has only appeared in one game, where he went 1 for 4. Hope he can get some regular AB’s moving forward.
Tigres del Licey
INF Emilio Guerrero is hitting .500 in 2GP. Would love to see the 6’4″ shortstop impress this Fall and get a chance to start the year in New Hampshire.
Leones del Escogido
RP Ryan Tepera has had two good outings and one bad one. In his last outing he allowing a run on two hits in one inning of work. Prior to that he had worked 1.2IP allowing one hit and walked one and struck out one. He now owns a 0-0, 3.38ERA this fall.
LHP Richard Bleier has started a game and made one very poor appearance out of the bullpen. In his start, Bleier went 5.0 innings, allowed one run on 6 hits and walked one while striking out 3. In his poor bullpen appearance he allowed 5 runs on 5 hits.
Arizona Fall League

LF/2B Dwight Smith Jr. playing as one of the reserves, Smith only plays twice a week. He is starting to take reps as at second. He has been hitting well in his limited time. In 2 games this week he went 4-for-9 with 3RBI and a triple. He’s hitting .300/.364/.450 in 5 GP.
