Here are how Red Sox prospects fared over the past week in the Caribbean and around the world:

Venezuelan Professional Baseball League

Justin Thomas (Leones del Caracas): Thomas made his debut on December 9. Hurled 1.1 innings of relief across two appearances this week, allowing just 1 walk. 

Ryan Lavarnway (Bravos de Margarita): Hit .357/.550/.429 in 14 at-bats over five games before leaving Venezuela due to sickness. His last game was on October 23.

Ronald Bermudez (Leones del Caracas): Has not played since November 6. Line sits at .154/.185/.192 in 26 at-bats over 13 games.

Oscar Perez (Tiburones de La Guaira): Perez appeared in two games for La Guaira earlier in the season, but has primarily played for the Red Sox team in La Liga Paralela (see below).

Mexican Pacific League

Miguel Gonzalez (Venados de Mazatlan): Received the start on December 9 against Mexicali, hurling 6.0 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits and a walk while striking out 8 to pick up the victory.

Tony Thomas (Algodoneros de Guasave): Appeared in six contests, going 6 for 18 with 2 doubles, 3 RBI, 2 runs scored and 2 stolen bases.

Jesus Loya (Naranjeros de Hermosillo): After not appearing since October 22, Loya returned to action on December 8, going 0 for 1 in his lone at-bat. Also appeared as a late-inning replacement on December 10 and 11.

Marco Duarte (Aguilas de Mexicali): Duarte was acquired by the Red Sox in exchange for their Rule 5 selection, Marwin Gonzalez, after the Astros selected Duarte in the Triple-A phase of the draft. He has been working exclusively as a starter in the Mexican League, going 5-1 with a 2.93 ERA to date. In his latest start on December 10 against Mazatlan, Duarte picked up the victory for his 6.2 innings of work, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits and a walk, striking out 5.

Stolmy Pimentel (Estrellas de Oriente): Did not appear this week. Last pitched on November 23.

Oscar Tejeda (Gigantes del Cibao): Has not played since October 23. He technically entered the game on October 25 as a pinch hitter, but did not complete the at-bat, perhaps because of an opposing pitching change.
