In the Arizona Fall League yesterday Yorman Rodriguez had a big day at the plate as he smacked not one, but two home runs in a Glendale Desert Dogs loss. He pulled one down the line and hit the other one to the right-center gap. With his big day he is now hitting.281 and slugging .500, though he has struggled with his walk and strikeout rates so far.
You can watch some video of Rodriguez from this past August below.

We talked for about an hour if you want to give it a listen you can give it a go below. If you want to download it for later listening, right click here and save the file.

The Australian Winter Baseball League is also just getting underway. So far only one Red has appeared in a game, right handed pitcher Jason Kilby. He was on the Arizona League Reds roster this year but never appeared in a game. He threw 0.2 innings in his lone appearance so far with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. Brothers Matt and Josh Kennelly who were both in the Reds system this year are on the Perth Heat roster but have yet to play.
