For the full list of Red Sox prospects participating in these leagues, check out our Fall & Winter Leagues page, which will be updated continuously through January. This week's roundup covers the period of November 18 to 24.

Dominican Baseball League
After a solid debut last week for Licey, Marco Hernandez (pictured) struggled this week, going 1 for 13 with two walks. The only other player to see action was Jhon Nunez who went 1 for 4 in his only appearance. 

Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League (Puerto Rico)
The first full week of play in Puerto Rico was a busy one, with several players making regular appearances. Sam Travis hit a home run as part of a 4-for-17 week and he is now hitting .227 in the early going. Jantzen Witte and Jeremy Rivera each struggled in full-time roles, with Witte going 4 for 20 with a double and a triple, while Rivera went 3 for 16 with a double. In part-time roles Edgar Corcino went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts, and Alan Marrero went 0 for 7 win a run scored. 

The only pitcher to see action was Gregorio Reyes, who walked two in a scoreless inning, while Matthew Lugo got into two games a pinch-runner, but did not get an at-bat. 

Mexican Pacific League
Konner Wade, the only Boston player in the Mexican League this winter, did not play this week. He last appeared in a game on October 31.

Australian Baseball League
Playing for the Melbourne Aces, outfielder Colin Willis, who was signed in October out of the American Association, went 3 for 7 this week. His first two appearances came as a pinch-hitter, but he got his first start on Saturday and made the most of it. He went 3 for 5 with two runs scored and an RBI.
