Fall/Winter League Roundup: Regular season closes in Puerto Rico


Now that the calendar has flipped to 2022, the Caribbean winter leagues are headed down the home stretch, with the Caribbean Series scheduled to begin at the end of the month. The Dominican Professional Baseball League, Mexican Pacific League and Venezuelan Professional Baseball League started their playoffs this week, though no Red Sox prospects appeared. Meanwhile, the Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League wraps up its regular season January 3 and the Panama Professional Baseball League will also move to the postseason next week. This week's roundup covers the week of December 26 through January 2. 

Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League (Puerto Rico)
 
It was the final week of the regular season in Puerto Rico before the playoffs begin January 4.  Chase Shugart (pictured) threw three clean innings with three strikeouts across two appearances, pitching for Mayaguez, while Juan Montero appeared exclusively as a defensive replacement behind the plate for Caguas. Big leaguer Christian Vazquez has been playing first base and designated hitter for Santurce to get some at-bats in and was 4 for 22 on the week, with two runs, two RBI, a pair of strikeouts and a walk.
 
There is one more day of regular season play before the postseason.
