Rays prospects and winter leagues: Fox continues hitting streak

Lucius Fox will likely be ending his 2018 on a high note.

MLB: All Star Game-Futures Game Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Next week’s update will include players in Australia and Puerto Rico, so that should be it for player additions, unless there are any late arrivals.

Hitters

2B Jonathan Aranda, Liga Mexicana del Pacífico

This week: 0 AB
Offseason: 2 AB, .000 BA/.000 OBP/.000 SLG

Aranda hasn’t played since Oct. 21 and is now listed on his club’s reserve list.

OF Ryan Boldt, Arizona Fall League

This week: 0 AB
Offseason: 18 AB, .278 BA/.350 OBP/.278 SLG

Boldt is no longer listed on Peoria’s roster, so I’d assume his major offseason activity is over.

2B Vidal Brujan, Liga de Béisbol Profesional de la República Dominicana

This week: 0 AB
Offseason: 13 AB, .077 BA/.077 OBP/.077 SLG

Brujan last batted on Oct. 24.

This week: 16 AB, 2 R, 3 H, 1 2B, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 3 K
Offseason: 54 AB, .259 BA/.271 OBP/.500 SLG

After a hot start, Gomez has cooled down a bit, but he’s still playing regularly.

OF Emilio Gustave, LIDOM

This week: 8 AB, 1 R, 3 H, 1 RBI, 3 K, 1/1 SB

C Ronaldo Hernandez, AFL

This week: 3 AB, 1 R, 2 BB
Offseason: 7 AB, .143 BA/.333 OBP/.143 SLG

Unfortunately for Rays fans, it appears that Hernandez is not going to be receiving regular ABs in the AFL.

OF Joe McCarthy, AFL

This week: 7 AB, 2 R, 2 H, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K
Offseason: 46 AB, .239 BA/.375 OBP/.370 SLG

All four of McCarthy’s extra-base hits this offseason came in two games, including Wednesday’s game with a double and home run.
