Fall/Winter League Roundup: Rusney Castillo returns to action

This week's roundup covers play from the period of December 1-7. 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 offseason.

Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League (Puerto Rico)

After missing six weeks with a thumb injury that occurred in the Arizona Fall League, Rusney Castillo (pictured) made his debut in Puerto Rico, going 4 for 11 with a walk. His best game came on Thursday, when he laced three singles while adding a stolen base and scoring a run. His teammate in Puerto Rico, Henry Ramos, also had a solid week, going 4 for 9 with three walks, and he also reached base three times on Thursday. Christian Vazquez managed only one hit in his nine at-bats this week, and he did not get a chance to show off his arm, as nobody attempted to steal in his two games behind the plate.

Appearing twice out of the bullpen, Dayan Diaz allowed one hit and two walks in 1 1/3 innings, and he now has four straight scoreless appearances. 

Dominican Baseball League

Aneury Tavarez finally cooled off this week, going 2 for 8 with three strikeouts in three games, while also being caught stealing twice. He is still batting .375 in 56 at-bats for los Estrellas. 

Venezuelan Professional Baseball League

Edwin Escobar, the lone active Red Sox player in the league, did not pitch this week.

Venezuelan Liga Paralela

With the end of the regular season coming up tomorrow, Boston will likely not be making the playoffs, as they went 2-2 last week to move to 17-23 on the season. William Cuevas and Oscar Perez may make the playoffs for La Guaira, and both pitchers have had solid seasons to help lead them to a good record.
