Roman Mendez was the only Red Sox pitcher to appear in the Dominican League last week. He appeared in two contests, tossing an inning of relief, allowing a run on two hits and two walks. He picked up the loss in Wednesday's contest against Licey.

Sandy Leon is the lone Red Sox positional prospect still in action in Venezuela. He went 3 for 12 with three runs scored and an RBI in four contests. Edwin Escobar made his seventh start of the offseason on Wednesday, allowing one run on one hit and two walks in just 1 2/3 innings of work.
