The Dominican Republic swept through the first round of pool play and opens the second round back at the top of its rotation with Carlos Martinez.
Puerto Rico will be quite a different matchup for Martinez than Canada was. It has a more powerful lineup with a certain someone in the middle who knows Martinez better than anybody else.
Martinez has thrown to Yadier Molina since he debuted for the Cardinals in May of 2013. Now the guy he works with every fifth day for more than six months a year will brief his Puerto Rican teammates with information about how to hit him.
But Martinez has the kind of stuff that’s tough for someone who knows that’s coming. And the DR’s bullpen has been steady, even after blowing a late lead to Colombia in its last game.
Let’s recap the first round for that seductive Puerto Rican infield:
Yadi Molina is hitting .333 with a 1.000 OPS that includes a homer. It was also nice that he got the day off in Puerto Rico’s last game against Italy.
TJ Rivera only has one hit in two starts at first base but it was a home run.
Javy Baez has homered and is hitting .357.
Francisco Lindor (1.500 OPS) and Carlos Correa (1.274 OPS) each have a pair of home runs.
It’s not as if the other guys haven’t been good either. Carlos Beltran and Angel Pagan have also been productive. Mike Aviles even got into the action with a couple of hits in his first start of the tournament against Italy.
Puerto Rico carries a lot of talent on its roster and has found a way to maximize it thus far.
Free Dominican Republic vs. Puerto Rico WBC Prediction: it’s a coin flip.
The starting pitching matchup looks to favor the DR but there’s still a good chance the bullpens decide this one.
