Thus far, the Kansas City Royals have had a few players get action in the Dominican Winter League, although none have seen a great deal of action. Raul Mondesi has made one appearance without an at bat, and Cheslor Cuthbert was 1-2 with two walks in his only outing.
Jorge Bonifacio is hitless in his three at bats with two strikeouts, but has managed to score two runs. Interestingly enough, both runs were scored after Bonifacio reached base after striking out. This is certainly one of those times where baseball is an interesting game statistically.
Francisco Pena has served as the fourth catcher for Aguilas, and has only received 19 at bats thus far. He has not exactly done much to give the team an incentive to play him much more, with only four hits and two walks. Pena has scored twice, but does not have any extra base hits and has not driven in any runs at this point.
Of the five members of the Royals organization to see action thus far in the Dominican Winter League, Orlando Calixte has had the most playing time. He has also had a rough go thus far, with six hits in 33 at bats. He has walked three times, scoring four runs and has driven in two. However, like Pena, Calixte has yet to generate an extra base hit.
