HWB Waikiki was off today, like the rest of the league.
Loyal reader Angel provided a list of the Yankees’ players in the Dominican Winter League, here’s what we got:
- Tigres del Licey: Jon Ortiz, Jairo Heredia, Edwar Ramirez, Damaso Marte, Oneli Perez, Juan Miranda, Jhonny Nunez
- Aguilas de Cibao: Bernie Castro, Melky Cabrera, Dellin Betances, Wilkins Arias, Matt Carson
- Estrellas Orientales: Robbie Cano, Noel Castillo, Wady Rufino, Prilys Cuello, Eduardo Nunez
- Leones del Escogido: Wilson Betemit, Jose Veras, Ivan Nova, Alex Rodriguez, Wilkins DeLaRosa, Abe Almonte, Andres Perez
- Toros del Este: Jose Valdez, Josue Calzado, Humberto Sanchez
These players aren’t necessarily on the team’s active roster, nor are they guaranteed any playing time, but these are the teams that hold their rights. A-Rod won’t even do so much as put a uniform on for Escogido.
