Fall/Winter League Roundup: Gudino, Padron-Artiles set to play in Caribbean Series

Another winter ball season is effectively in the books, which means the 2023 Caribbean Series is almost upon us. The Red Sox will be well represented in the international tournament, as recently signed infielder Edwin Diaz will play for Puerto Rico, Norwith Gudino will play for Venezuela, and Yusniel Padron-Artiles (pictured) will play for Panama.


Roberto Clemente Professional Baseball League
After signing a minor-league deal with the Red Sox two weeks ago, infielder Edwin Diaz has been added to Puerto Rico's roster for the upcoming Caribbean Series in Venezuela. The right-handed hitting 27-year-old was named LBPRC MVP after batting .229/375/.418 with eight homers and 29 RBI over 48 games (192 plate appearances) for the Criollos de Caguas this winter. Former Red Sox minor leaguers Alan Marrero and Jeremy Rivera are also on Puerto Rico's roster. 

Venezuelan Professional Baseball League
Norwith Gudino appeared in three games for Caracas in its championship series against La Guajira this past week. The 27-year-old right-hander allowed four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings of work. He struck out four of the 11 batters he faced on Monday to help propel Leones to their 21st league title and their first in 13 years. Gudino is now slated to represent Venezuela in the Caribbean Series, which begins on Thursday.

Panama Professional Baseball League
The 2022-2023 Probeis season concluded earlier this month. Eduardo Vaughan slashed .242/.338/.355 with one home run in 18 games with Aguilas Metropolitanas. Yusniel Padron-Artiles, meanwhile, pitched well for Astronautas de Los Santos. As a result, the 25-year-old righty will represent Panama in the Caribbean Series after being added to the Federales de Chiriquí's (the league champion's) roster on Monday.
