Go, I'm curious where you dug those up, I've been trying to find a decent source and have failed miserably.


Care to share?



'03 you can also check out the Venezuelan Winter League site. Although it's in spanish, the "Estadistacas" (stats) section on the left pane has .pdf files that show stats for all batters & pitchers in the league, & seems to be updated pretty well. You can usually deduce what is runs, hits, average, wins/losses, etc...

Young arms thriving in winter ball

Garcia, Petit among club's prospects enjoying solid seasons

By Joe Frisaro / MLB.com



It may be a few more seasons before Harvey Garcia blossoms into an impact reliever with the Marlins, but for now, the right-hander is making an impact pitching for Caracas in the Venezuelan Winter League.

"He's a bullpen guy with a really good arm," said Jim Fleming, the Marlins' vice president of player development and scouting. "We see him as a back-end-of-the-bullpen guy."


Garcia was obtained by the Marlins from the Red Sox in a blockbuster Thanksgiving deal. Florida sent Josh Beckett, Mike Lowell and Guillermo Mota to Boston for shortstop Hanley Ramirez, pitcher Anibal Sanchez, Garcia and pitcher Jesus Delgado.


In 15 relief appearances with Caracas, Garcia has given up four runs in 17 innings. To go along with his 2.12 ERA, he is 1-0. The right-hander has struggled a bit with control, however, walking 11 to go along with 13 strikeouts.


Garcia still is relatively young, and he probably will open the season at Class A Jupiter.


In 2005, he pitched for low Class A Greenville in the Red Sox system. He appeared in 32 games and was 3-5 with a 2.01 ERA, throwing 44 2/3 innings, striking out 54 while walking 18.



With so much turnover on their roster, the Marlins are providing plenty of opportunities for young players to develop and move rapidly through the system.


A number of other prospects are also refining their skills playing in various Winter Leagues.


Yusmeiro Petit: A promising starter, Petit will get a shot at cracking the Marlins' rotation in Spring Training. The right-hander is excelling for Magallanes in Venezuela.


In nine games, Petit is 5-1 with a 2.01 ERA. He's thrown 49 1/3 innings, striking out 43 while walking just eight.


"What we hear about Petit is he throws strikes and makes them put the ball in play," Fleming said. "In close to 50 innings, he's walked eight. His fastball is deceptive and he's a really good pitcher."


Petit's fastball doesn't dazzle, but he has a knack for getting outs and winning at whatever level he has pitched.


Sanchez: A teammate of Petit with Magallanes, Sanchez has been used mostly in relief this winter. The right-hander has not been involved in any decisions, and he has a 4.91 ERA in 18 1/3 innings. His strikeout totals are high (18) while he's walked six.


Miguel Cabrera: The Marlins' two-time All-Star typically joins his native Aragua Tigers about this time of year. Seeking to get some action in the offseason, Cabrera has thus far appeared in 12 games, batting .293 (12-for-41) with two doubles, one home run and 10 RBIs. He's struck out eight times and drawn 12 walks.


Renyel Pinto: Another Marlins newcomer, Pinto was acquired in December from the Cubs as part of the Juan Pierre trade. The left-hander is 1-2 with a 7.90 ERA for Caribes.


Pinto has struggled with his control, walking 14 in 13 2/3 innings while striking out 10.
