Jose Siri is coming to Cincinnati for Redsfest on Friday and Saturday. That makes it incredibly likely that his game on Wednesday night was the last for at least a few days in the Dominican Winter League. I wrote about how he was taking advantage of playing time in November earlier this week, and last night he kept that going in a big way.

Playing in center field and leading off the bottom of the 1st inning, Jose Siri belted a home run to the opposite field. It was his second home run in the last two games. Two innings later he doubled down the left field line. In the 6th inning he would add another double on a line drive to left field. He grounded into a force out in his final at-bat, but stole his 9th base of the winter league season.

Update:

The Gigantes posted a video this morning of the home run hit by Jose Siri last night and it was an absolute shot that left the stadium.

As noted above, on Tuesday he crushed a curveball for his first of the winter league season. The Gigantes posted a video of that home run (but as of this typing they haven’t posted the one from Wednesday night). Here’s the video from Tuesday:

With his production in November, Jose Siri has quickly been putting together a big time performance for Gigantes del Cibao. In 20 games played thus far he’s hitting .292/.333/.563 with five doubles, a triple and two home runs. He’s also stolen nine bases in ten attempts. It’s been a big 2017 year for the now 22-year-old Dominican Republic native. After beating up the Midwest League he’s now doing the same thing in the winter league, helping further establish himself on the prospect landscape in Minor League Baseball..
