Fall/Winter League Roundup: Duran and Wilson homer in Arizona


With the other countries starting their leagues in October or November, the Arizona Fall League is still the only league with game action so far. Coverage of the fall/winter leagues will continue every Monday into January. For the full list of Red Sox prospects participating in these leagues, check out our Fall & Winter Leagues page, which will be updated continuously through January. This week's roundup covers the period of September 23-29.

Arizona Fall League
CJ Chatham cooled off a bit after a strong opening week, going 3 for 13 with a walk and a stolen base, though he is still hitting .310/.394/.414 over his first seven games. Both Marcus Wilson and Jarren Duran homered this week, as Wilson went 1 for 11 and Duran went 5 for 15. Duran also added two steals and walked three times as part of a very impressive week.

It was a bit of a rough week on the mound for the four Red Sox pitchers in Arizona, with only one pitcher not allowing a run. Yoan Aybar tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings but also walked three and struck out two. Tanner Houck got the start on Wednesday and allowed four runs in only 3 1/3 innings as he was taken deep twice and gave up five hits. Bryan Mata tossed two scoreless innings on Tuesday but he followed that up by giving up three runs in two innings on Sunday. Jhonathan Diaz made two relief appearances, giving up a run in both of those games.
