All of the offseason leagues are well into their season, but that doesn't prohibit movement from the personnel. Alex Hassan, J.C. Linares and Stefan Welch are all new to their respective leagues relative to their teammates.
This week’s roundup covers Nov. 25-Dec. 1.
Hassan, the only Sox player to see action, got into three games during his second week in the DWL. He finished 3 for 11 with a double, a walk and six strikeouts.
Mexican Pacific League:
After seeing single at-bats in three games, Jesus Loya got back-to-back starts and made the most of it. He went 4 for 8 with a homer and four RBI.
Venezuelan Winter League:
Linares played in a quartet of contests during his first week in the VWL, turning in a 4-for-15 effort with a double and three RBI.
Puerto Rican (Roberto Clemente) Baseball League:
Righty Jeremy Kehrt pitched for the first time in more than a week, but he was lit up for five runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

Venezuelan Liga Paralela:
Jose Vinicio has maintained his hot fall with a 6-for-16 week. He ranks third in the league in batting (.354) and plugging percentage (.545). Victor Acosta went 5 for 15.
Carlos Garcia allowed two hits in five scoreless innings in his only action of the week.
Australian Baseball League:
