Like soldiers in the winter's night

As announced today, the Indians will have 18 players, including Jordan Brown, Hector Rondon, Andy Marte and Luis Valbuena, taking part in winter ball this offseason.

Fausto Carmona had indicated to the Tribe that he would like to pitch in the Dominican Republic, but the Indians decided not to go that route.

Here are the participants, by league:

Venezuela: INF Cristo Arnal, INF/OF Jordan Brown, INF Carlos Rivero, RHP Hector Rondon and INF Karexon Sanchez (Caracas), INF Niuman Romero and RHP Steven Wright (Caribes de Oriente), INF Luis Valbuena (Cardenales de Lara), RHP Johan Pino (Tigres de Aragua).

Also, Minor League field coordinator Dave Hudgens will manage Caracas and Triple-A hitting coach Jon Nunnally will serve on Hudgens’ staff.

Dominican Republic: OF Jose Constanza and INF Andy Marte (Azucareros del Este), RHP Frank Herrmann (Aguilas), LHP Juan Lara (Las Estrellas Orientales), OF Lucas Montero (Gigantes de San Francisco).

Puerto Rico: C Roberto Perez and RHP Neil Wagner (Mayaguez).

Colombia: 3B Giovanny Urshela (Cartagena).

Mexico: OF Roman Pena.

Glad to see Andy Marte and Jordan Brown getting some more reps this winter. Hopefully, they’ve both got a chip on their shoulders’ and will come into camp ready to take a position.

Also, very glad to see that the Tribe did not allow Fausto to participate. He needs some definite time off away from baseball. He’s trying too hard and its not working.

Something that will be interesting to see, based upon his 2009 season, is if Frank Herrmann will be able to claim a bullpen spot this next season. Liked what I saw from him this year…and Lord knows we could use the bullpen help.

LGT!
