Juan Francisco plays well, Jhon Floerntino and Eugenio Velez debut

10/28/09 Game
The Gigantes lost again tonight 12-3 to Estrellas from San Pedro de Macoris.

Juan Francisco had 2 RBI as the DH. The dominican baseball guy is going to go ahead and tap him as the preseason MVP of the Gigantes. We'll see if this holds up.  Jhon Florentino got his first playing time of the year starting at 2nd base. He was with the Corpus Christi Hooks last year (my hometown team), so the dominican baseball guy saw him play a lot. This is the Astros AA affiliate. He can play 2nd or 3rd and had a decent year as a spot starter at both positions last year.

Evan MacLane, another import, got the win for Estrellas and improved to 2-0, with a 2.25 ERA in 3 starts. He is in the Cardinals organization and pitched at AAA last year.  Eugenio Velez debuted last night for the Estrellas, and had a triple, double, and 3 RBI. He was with the Giants AAA team last year and played well as a center fielder.
