Wilfredo Boscan Leads Venezula Winter League In ERA


While Padres fans have no idea who the Padres have in Wilfredo Boscan, it appears the Padres do. The Texas Rangers sent Boscan to San Diego on Dec.6 to complete the Cory Burns trade.

Boscan,23, is showing his talents in the Venezuela Winter League where he continues to lead the league in earned run average, the U-T’s Padres beat writer Bill Center reports.

The right-handed Boscan is pitching for the Aguilias del Zulia where he has posted a 3-1 record with a 1.80 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 55 innings pitched.

What I find interesting is Boscan has made 12 starts for the Aguilias del Zulia. If Boscan makes the Padres roster, he would probably come out of the bullpen  though it appears he can start in an emergency.

I know, I know the competition for Winter League games is no where near Major League Baseball’s competition level but it is still good to see Boscan succeeding in the Winter League. Hope this kid keeps it up.
