Spring Training might be weeks away, but several Baby Bombers are still getting their reps in as part of the Caribbean Leagues. One of them, infielder Donovan Solano, will be heading to the final round of the 2017 Dominican Winter League playoffs with Tigres Del Licey.
Solano went 2-for-3 in the game, driving in a run in the ninth inning to cement the lead for Licey.
Licey will face off against Aguilas Cibaenas, a team that does not have any current Yankees players but does feature former Yankees OF Zolio Almonte.
Aguilas Cibaenas defeated Gigantes del Cibao to advance to the finals. In that game Yankees prospect, Adonis Rosa was impressive, throwing 25 pitches in a three-inning performance, striking out five batters allowing a walk and two hits.
The finals start tomorrow, and the winner will go on to represent the Dominican Winter League in the annual Caribbean Series which features teams from the Mexican Winter League, Venezuelan Winter League, the Puerto Rican League and Cuba.
