Daily Winter Baseball results - Part the Vth

Who knew that the winter leagues lasted this long or would take so many posts? Time for another re-up to keep this thread in plain sight. Several Giants that had been playing in leagues that are still active have shut it down and gone home for the rest of the year or gone back to Scottsdale to train at the Giants year-round camp. Those players include Brandon Belt, Francisco Peguero, Justin Christian, Tyler Graham, David Quinowski (and there's some question on whether or not he is still property of the Giants), and Edwin Escobar. In addition, Max Ramirez (who we had been following) just signed a minor league deal for the 2012 season with the Royals That leaves Venezuela as the main league to follow and La Guaria as the team hot spot. The Sharks are clinging to first place in the league thanks mostly to the play of 3 Giant prospects: Hector Sanchez, Gregor Blanco and Ehire Adrianza (to a lesser extent).

UPDATE: The Giants signed middle-infielder Joaquin Arias to a minor league contract on Dec. 17th. He's been a pro since 2001 (signed as a IFA by the Yankees) and started his minor league career way back in 2002, but he signed at such a young age that he's still only 27 years old and won't turn 28 until next September. He's played in 113 games in the majors since the 2006 season, but he seems to have been stuck in the minors because he hasn't been a good enough defensive SS or a good enough hitter to win a permanent spot on a major league roster as a UT infielder.
