11/12 AFL & winter ball update

Josh Vitters returned to action in the Arizona Fall League on Wednesday. Vitters was the DH in the Mesa Solar Sox’s 9-8 win over Surprise, and went 2-for-5 with a RBI. He had been sidelined with a strained pectoral muscle. Andrew Cashner, the Cubs’ No. 1 Draft pick in 2008, started the game for the AFL team and gave up four runs on seven hits over three innings. He struck out five.

In Mexican League play, Thomas Diamond picked up his first win Wednesday in his second start. The right-hander threw five shutout innings, giving up four hits and striking out six in Mexicali’s 3-1 win over Mochis.
