11/24/23 : Phillies Winter League Roundup

Here’s a catchup on Phillies players or former players participating in the Winter Leagues.  It’s cumbersome to find the results for some of the leagues but we persevere 🤓.   Rafael Marchan is having a really good season for Tigres de Aragua in the Venezuelan League.  The twenty four year old catcher is slashing .373/.463/.597 with an OPS of 1.060 in 19 games (80 plate appearances) with 5 doubles, 2 triples, 2 home runs and 15 RBIs. He’s walked 8 times.  If interested in reading my notes on Rafael here’s a link to the annual minor league players notes article in which I discuss him - https://www.philliesbaseballfan.com/post/11-20-23-annual-phillies-minor-league-player-notes-catchers-part-three


Australian Baseball League :


The league plays games Thursday thru Saturday, they call each weekly series a “round”.  The Phillies contingent plays for the Adelaide Giants.  This week’s games are round two.


11/23/23 :  Adelaide 10 Perth 5


First baseman Rixon Wingrove was 3 for 4 with a single, two doubles, a walk and two RBIs, he also scored a run.  Rixon was playing for Team Australia during round one in the Asia Professional Baseball Championships in Tokyo so this game was his season debut for Adelaide.  Catcher Andrik Nava went 1 for 5 with a home run and two RBIs.  Center fielder Cade Fergus was 1 for 4 with a double and three RBIs.  Second baseman Kendall Simmons was 1 for 5 with a single and run scored.  Leadoff hitter and third baseman Nick Ward was 1 for 4 with a single and walk, he scored two runs.
