Random Notes: Altuve, Parraz, Abad & Trinidad

Jose Altuve continues to get good press in Venezuela. He has mastered the art of the baseball cliche' it is even coming across vial Google translator.

I try to learn everything you can to a team as important as this, where there are professional baseball players of this quality and a level playing unbelievable....

I am very young, just 20 years old I have, my career is starting and baseball is a game of details. Every day you see something new. That's it....

A good experience and went to play hard,
This article also addresses the fact that his playing time hasn't dipped despite the arrival of some big leaguers to the roster.

Jordan Parraz was removed from the Royals 40 man roster yesterday. But he is still in the Royals plan as they hope to sign him to a minor league deal.
“Jordan Parraz, you just hope gets back on track to what he did in 2009. We know it’s in there.” said assistant general manager J.J. Picollo

Fernando Abad had an impressive outing in relief Friday. He went 4 2/3, scattering 7 hits but only 1 run. His ERA in the Dominican Winter League is 2.25 in 5 outings (15 1/3 IP).

Polin Trinidad has his strongest outing of the Dominican Winter League tonight. He finally got the start after relieving for 8 appearances. He went 5 innings tonight, giving up 3 hits and 1 run while striking out 2. That dropped his ERA for the winter to 4.11.
