Rattler Alumni Update: End of Winter Leagues

I really just wanted to type the phrase “End of Winter” in the title because it’s -8 this morning.


The Perth Heat swept the Canberra Cavalry 2 games to none in the Australian Baseball League’s Championship Series with a 14th inning walkoff win in game one and a 2-1 win in game two.

No Timber Rattlers were involved, but former Brewers reliever Graeme Lloyd is the pitching coach for the Heat.

The Caribbean Series wrapped up with Mexico defeating Puerto Rico 7-1 in the Championship Game.  Three ex-Rattlers were on the team from Puerto Rico that made it through the Round Robin part of the tournament with a 2-2 record and beat Venezuela 2-0 in the Semifinal Game before losing to Mexico in the Final.

Joel Pineiro ('98) made his Winter League debut for the season with Ponce in Puerto Rico.

Joel Pineiro (’98) lost to Cuba in the round robin without allowing an earned run.

Puerto Rico (3-3):
Jeff Dominguez: 6 games; .143/.294/.214; 0HR, 0RBI
Martin Maldonado: 6 games; .174/.174/.217; 0HR, 2RBI
Joel Pineiro: 2 games, 2 games started; 0-1, 0.00ERA; 11.2IP, BB, 4K, 0.94WHIP
