Fall/Winter League Roundup: Yorke has big week, Scott belts two home runs


The Arizona Fall League and Dominican Professional League both continued into another week while the Venezuelan Professional League has gotten underway. The Scorpions had a nice week, winning three of their six games while also tying one.

Arizona Fall League 

Scottsdale scored a bunch of runs this past week, and Sox prospects were a big part of it. Nick Yorke (pictured) led the way by going 7 for 17 this past week, roping three doubles with three RBI. He also drew a couple walks and scored three times. In 66 plate appearances this fall, Yorke is batting .340 with a .911 OPS. 

Stephen Scott had yet another big week at the dish as well. The catcher made three starts and went 4 for 11 with a couple home runs, a walk, and four RBI. In nine games this fall, he is batting .400 with a 1.232 OPS. Among qualified hitters, he is leading the AFL in slugging percentage at .800. 

Wilyer Abreu turned in a strong week, going 4 for 14 with a double, three RBI, and a stolen base. Niko Kavadas added three hits in nine at-bats, including a double. The first baseman also walked for the 10th time this fall, raising his OBP to .546, which would be second in the league, but he doesn't quite qualify for league leaders. 

On the mound, Jacob Webb had a really nice week, tossing three innings without allowing a run. He gave up just three hits with one walk and three strikeouts. He also saved a game, his second save of the fall. Ryan Zeferjahn also had a decent outing, as he did not allow a hit over two innings. He did give up three runs, but just one of them was earned. He struck out three and walked a pair. Aaron Perry struggled mightily in his first appearance of last week, allowing six runs on seven hits while getting just one out. His next appearance went much better, tossing a shutout frame with two strikeouts.

Dominican Professional Baseball League 

Triston Casas is having some issues with a knee injury, as he headed back to Boston to get it checked out after just three plate appearances this past week. He went 0 for 1 with a pair of walks. 

Victor Santos tossed a couple innings and allowed just one unearned run. The right-hander struck out three, giving him six punchouts so far this fall in four innings. Chase Shugart made his fall debut and struggled a bit, surrendering two earned runs in 1 1/3 frames. He had one strikeout and one walk. 

Enmanuel Valdez also made his fall debut and had a great week. He went 5 for 16 (.313) with a double, an RBI, and a couple runs scored.
