Fall/Winter League Roundup: Panama starts up and Santos adds to his scoreless streak


It was another light week for Sox prospects, but this week welcomed the start of the Panama Professional Baseball League, which began on Thursday. For the full list of Red Sox prospects participating in these leagues, check out our Fall & Winter Leagues page, which will be updated continuously throughout December and January. This week's roundup covers the week of December 6 through 12.

Dominican Professional Baseball League

Escogido has two Sox prospects in its ranks in Franchy Cordero and Victor Santos (pictured, right). Cordero has been playing full-time and did so again this week, going 4 for 19. His best performance came on Friday when he went 2 for 4 with a double, a walk, and a strikeout, and his worst performance came Tuesday, going 0 for 6 with four strikeouts. On the mound, Santos had a busy week, pitching in three games. On Tuesday, he got the win with a perfect scoreless inning with two strikeouts, on Thursday he allowed one hit and struck out one in 2/3 of an inning, and Sunday he threw his third scoreless outing of the week, allowing only a walk. Santos has now strung together six consecutive scoreless outings.

Joan Martinez had two very different appearances pitching for Aguilas this week. On Wednesday, he threw two scoreless innings, working around two walks while striking out one, and on Saturday he threw only 2/3 of an inning and allowed a home run.

Venezuelan Professional Baseball League

Coming off a rough week last week, Oddanier Mosqueda did not pitch for Caribes de Anzoategui this week. 

Outfielder Pedro Castellanos played only twice for games for Cardenales de Lara. Playing on Thursday and Sunday, the 24-year-old went hitless in five at-bats with a walk and a strikeout. Despite getting off to a strong start this winter season, Castellanos has gone hitless in six of his last eight games.

Mexican Pacific League

Jorge Rodriguez appeared once for Naranjeros de Hermosillo, pitching 1 2/3 innings allowing only one hit on Friday.

Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League (Puerto Rico)

The only prospect in the league to this point, Henry Nunez, was released by RA12 last week after throwing a total of 1 1/3 innings with a 27.00 ERA, 5.25 WHIP, and five walks to one strikeout. However, right-hander Chase Shugart joined los Indios de Mayaguez last week and made his winter debut with one inning of relief, allowing a run on two hits while recording one strikeout.

Panama Professional Baseball League

The shortened three-team league got started this week with its first three games of the season. The Red Sox have infielder Jonathan Araúz playing for Federales de Chiriqui and outfielder Eduardo Vaughan playing for Aguilas Metropolitanas. Araúz did not appear in either of los Federales' first two games, while 19-year-old Vaughan went 2 for 6 with a double, a walk, and three strikeouts while hitting second.
