Brian McTaggart kindly tells us that Tommy Manzella will be playing in the Dominican this winter for Aguilas Cibaenas, beginning October 22.
"My main thing is that I missed some at-bats during the injury, and I'm looking forward to getting those 150 at-bats back and giving myself enough time to rest up and get stronger for next season."
And it wasn't exactly his idea:
"As a player, you like your offseason, because the whole season is a mental and physical grind. That's important to me, but I wasn't able to get as many at-bats as I would have liked, so it was the kind of thing the Astros brought up and asked me if I would be interested."
