Five players in action on Saturday around the globe.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.
Australian Baseball League
Jarryd Dale– (1-2)
The young Australian infielder is hitting .193 on the year after a 1-for-2 game on Friday morning. He has played sporadically the last few weeks as he has struggled with the bat for most of his time in the ABL.
Michael Gettys– (0-4) Error
The outfielder is hitting .297 so far after a 0-for-4 game in the ABL. He is winding down his year in Australia and could be in store for a productive 2019 season for the Padres. He will likely start the season in Amarillo or El Paso.
Dominican winter league
Fernando Tatis Jr.– (1-2) 2 Runs, RBI, BB, 2 SB, K
The all-world prospect was batting second and playing shortstop for the Estrellas on Friday. He was just named MVP and looks to be poising himself as a star player in the league. He cannot arrive in San Diego soon enough.

Puerto Rican winter league
Aldemar Burgos– (1-3) SB, K
The outfielder stole his second base of the playoff series and was in right field for his Puerto Rican team. Burgos has an excellent chance to develop into a viable prospect in the coming years.
Venezuelan winter league
No games scheduled
Mexican winter league
Esteban Quiroz– (1-4) 2 RBI, BB
The young infielder was batting third and playing second base in Mexico on Friday. He is hitting .435 this series and has shown a plus bat. The Padres plan to utilize Quiroz all over the infield initially during the spring.
