Fall/Winter League Roundup: Aneury Tavarez continues hot streak

This week's roundup covers play from the period of November 24-30. For the full list of Red Sox prospects participating in off-season action, check out our Fall and Winter Leagues page, which will be updated continuously through the end of the off-season.

Venezuelan Professional Baseball League

On Saturday, Edwin Escobar threw an inning with two strikeouts without allowing a baserunner as Lara cruised to an easy victory.

Dominican Baseball League

Aneury Tavarez (pictured) continued his impressive run for Estrellas this week, going 5 for 9 with three walks, two triples, a double and three stolen bases. Tavarez's overall line now stands at a white hot .396/.455/.542 with five steals over 48 at-bats. Heri Quevedo's struggles continued as he took the loss in his only appearance this week, allowing two hits (one by former Red Sox Manny Ramirez) and two earned runs without retiring a batter.

Juan Francisco was designated for assignment when the Hanley Ramirez signing was made official, but we'll update here on the chance he stays with the organization. He had a solid week at the plate for Licey, finishing 4 for 11 with a double, three walks and four strikeouts.

Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League (Puerto Rico)

Rusney Castillo has been cleared to play after an injury sustained in the AFL, and he will make his debut for Caguas tomorrow.

Two other hitters saw significant action this past week. Christian Vazquez continued his solid play, and over three games went 3 for 10 with two walks, three strikeouts and even stole a base. Henry Ramos started three games, but continued to struggle as he works off rust from being injured most of the regular season. He went 2 for 10 with two strikeouts and a stolen base, but continued to walk at a high rate, adding three more. Dayan Diaz pitched one scoreless inning on Wednesday, allowing a hit and a walk while striking out one.

Colombian Professional Baseball League

Statistics for last week are not available at this time. We will update should they become available.

Venezuelan Liga Paralela

The week was highlighted by a great pitching performance on Friday from William Cuevas, who entered in relief in the second inning and went on to throw 2 1/3 innings with five strikeouts while not allowing a baserunner to keep La Guaira in the game.
