Phillies catcher Ronny Paulino could be in action tonight when the Dominican Rebublic's Tigres de Licey take on Venezuela's Tigres de Aragua 5 p.m. on the MLB Network. Then, Mexico's Mazatlan Venados host Puerto Rico's Leones de Ponce at 10 p.m.
Beerleaguer: Paulino has seen action for Licey as both catcher and designated hitter and represents the main Phillies-related attraction during the round-robin tournament. Tonight's game could also feature Phillies non-roster invitee Yorman Bazardo pitching from Venezuela's bullpen. Paulino and Bazardo appear to be the only participants with a current connection to the Phillies, although it's just a guess; several players, like Terry Tiffee, suited up earlier this offseason for Mexico's team, but appear to be inactive. There will be plenty of ex-Phils peppered throughout the rosters, however, so be on the lookout.
