Fall/Winter League Roundup: Houck leads strong pitching performances

While the Dominican Winter League and Mexican Pacific League are set to kick off later this week, the Arizona Fall League remains the lone Fall/Winter League currently in action. It was a quiet week for Red Sox position players as both Jarren Duran and CJ Chatham cooled off from their red hot starts to the campaign, and Marcus Wilson remained absent from the Javelinas lineup. It was an entirely different story on the mound however as Tanner Houck's dominant start headlined a strong week of performances from the Red Sox representatives on the Peoria staff.

Heading into the week with a sterling .348 batting average, Jarren Duran cooled off significantly this week. the speedy outfielder went just 3 for 19, striking out twice and adding just a single walk across five games. It wasn't all negative for Duran, who managed to collect two extra-base hits with a pair of doubles. It was an up and down week at the plate for CJ Chatham, who notched all three of his hits in Peoria's shootout victory over Salt River on October 5th. Chatham ended the week 3 for 11 with no walks and three strikeouts but did manage to notch his fourth double of the season.
