The Dominican Winter League was the first of the Caribbean offseason leagues to finish its regular season.
UTIL Leury Garcia finished up with a .260/.338/.339 line for Gigantes del Cibao in 33 games. He stole 12 bases in 13 attempts. Those numbers are pretty much the major league upside for the switch-hitter, which should be more than adequate for a player with his defensive value and versatility.
1B Dan Black made his last appearance for Aguilas Cibaenas on December 2, finishing up at .270/.372/.484 in 33 games. The 25-year-old is an org player.
Recently signed MiLB free agent OF Denis Phipps didn't do much to impress his new employers .086/.195/.171 in 15 games for Estrellas de Oriente. The Dominican is simply org depth.
RHP Euclides Leyer pitched a single inning for Tigres del Licey in the final regular season game, throwing a clean frame with no hits, no walks, no strikeouts. The 21-year-old is a pitcher to watch as he moves up to High-A in 2014.
RHP Tony Pena Jr. threw 24.1 innings in 23 games for Aguilas, giving up 22 hits and 7 walks while striking out 27. The 32-year-old converted infielder still hasn't given up the ghost.
