We are a week in down in the Dominican Republic, and several Yankees prospects have already made their Winter League debuts, including Anyelo Gomez, Abiatal Avelino, and Mike Ford.

Gomez, pitched on Sunday, October 15 with a shutout inning of relief for Gigantes del Cibao against the Toros del Este.  He came into the game in the sixth inning and struck out the first batter he faced before getting two quick first pitch outs on the next two batters to complete his outing.
