It seems Alex Liddi isn’t meant to play in the Venezuelan Winter League. After a slow start into the 2011/2012 season the Italian third baseman was sent home by Lara Cardenales, ending his otherwise stellar year on a bittersweet note. The 22-year-old only was 6-for-44 with one homerun and two doubles in 14 games. He struck out 18 times. He batted .259/.332/.488 with 30 homeruns, 3 triples, 32 doubles, 121 runs and 104 RBI in 138 games in the Pacific Coast League. In September he was called up to the Major Leagues by the Seattle Mariners, where he went 9-for-40 with three homeruns in 15 games.
