Caribbean Roundup: October 11-16


Each off-season, several Red Sox prospects compete in the Caribbean Winter Leagues, made up of teams from the Dominican Winter League (Liga Dominicana de Béisbol Invernal), Mexican Pacific League (Liga Mexicana del Pacífico), Puerto Rican Professional Baseball League (Liga de Béisbol Profesional de Puerto Rico) and the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League (Liga Venezolana de Béisbol Profesional). The teams in these leagues typically play into late December or early January, with each league sending its top team to the Caribbean Series. To follow the Caribbean Winter League Red Sox player stats this off-season, visit our Fall-Winter League page, which is updated on a daily basis. In addition, this is the first in our series of weekly roundups of the Caribbean Winter Leagues - look for coverage to continue every Monday morning into January. This week's Caribbean Roundup covers the period of October 11-16, 2011. Look for expanded coverage when the Colombian Winter League gets underway later this month and the Puerto Rican League starts up on November 4.
