Dominicans on Playoff Rosters

Before the first round of the playoffs ends, the Dominican Baseball Guy wants to get up a list of all the Dominicans on playoff rosters for the 2010 MLB playoffs.  So here it is:

Rangers: Neftali Feliz, Alexi Ogando, Nelson Cruz, Vladimir Guerrero, Esteban German, Julio Borbon
Rays: Rafael Soriano, Joaquin Benoit, Carlos Pena
Reds: Edinson Volquez, Johnny Cueto, Francisco Cordero, Juan Francisco
Phillies: Antonio Bastardo, Placido Polanco, Wilson Valdez
Yankees: Robinson Cano
Twins: Francisco Liriano, Alexi Casilla
Giants: Santiago Casilla, Guillermo Mota, Ramon Ramirez, Juan Uribe
Braves: Cristhian Martinez, Diory Hernandez, Melky Cabrerra

So, that comes out to 26 Dominicans on the eight playoff teams.  The Rangers lead the way with six, and the Yankees, surprisingly only have Robinson Cano (nice recent article on Cano in the New York Times).  That's a little more than a whole team of Dominicans.  Comes out to 17% of the 150 players on playoff rosters.
