Fall/Winter League Roundup: Players collect in-season and postseason accolades


The winter leagues are almost over, but a few players still got a chance to offer postseason heroics. Next week all eyes will be on Norwith Gudino in Venezuela as his team plays for the championship. 

Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League 
Carolina has a 3-2 series lead over Mayaguez and is one game away from a championship. Matthew Lugo was one of two players named the LBPRC Rookie of the Year, and recent signing Edwin Diaz was named the LBPRC MVP. Lugo hit .275/.360/.450 with six home runs in 120 at-bats, while Diaz hit .229/.375/.418 with eight home runs in 153 at-bats. Both players helped lead Caguas to a first-place regular season finish. 

Dominican Professional Baseball League
Jorge Alfaro (pictured), signed as a minor league free agent on January 16, led his team to a title. He only had 21 regular season at-bats for Licey but was ultimately named MVP of the LIDOM championship series. In the round-robin portion of the playoffs, he hit .383/.471/.633 with two home runs in 60 at-bats. He turned it up another notch in the championship series, hitting .417/.417/.667 with another home run. 

Venezuelan Professional Baseball League
Norwith Gudino appeared in two games as he helped propel Caracas to the championship series. He threw a scoreless inning in his first outing and then earned the win with 3 1/3 shutout innings in his second appearance. The final series against La Guaira kicks off on Monday. 

Colombia Professional Baseball League
Ronaldo Hernandez's Cartagena club lost the championship series to MonterĂ­a. 

Panama Professional Baseball League
There are still no statistics available from Panama. Yusniel Padron-Artiles and Eduardo Vaughan are active in the league.
