Caribbean Winter Leagues underway


Three of the four Caribbean Winter Leagues started up in the past week. The primary recognized Caribbean Winter Leagues are the Dominican Winter League, the Venezuelan Winter League, the Mexican Pacific League, and the Puerto Rican Winter League. Generally, younger prospects from those respective areas participate in those leagues, but a number of major leaguers and ex-major leaguers play as well. There are also a few other under-the-radar leagues, including the Colombian Winter League and the Nicaraguan Winter League. Here are the Sox players who will be participating during the 2008-09 off-season:
