LIDOM (the Dominican winter league) starts play today.
Chas McCormick and Francis Martes are on the Leones del Escogido roster. McCormick is in left field and batting leadoff in today’s opener vs Licey. QC pitching coach Erick Abreu is the pitching coach for the Leones.
Jeremy Pena is with Estrellas de Oriente. Pena starts at short and hits 8th today against the Toros del Este.
In another thread, Rogelio Armenteros was reported to be with Gigantes del Cibao. He is currently listed at tomorrow’s starting pitcher for them versus Escogido.
And in case you were wondering, no fans allowed in stadiums.
So in opening day action…
- McCormick had a pair of doubles in 5 trips
- Martes in his first game action in over a year (after his second steroids-related suspension) walked 2 and surrendered a single in 2/3 of an inning of work
- Pena and his Estrellas club were rained out
