Winter League Stat Update

Now that the Caribbean leagues are hitting the playoffs, here is a look at notable players and prospects who spent the Winter playing ball.

First how about a quick primer on the Caribbean Winter leagues. There are four leagues that take place over the Winter with one in Venezuela, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The Mexican League utilizes a bracket format while the other three go with a round robin style playoffs.

Now on to the juicy bits.  The only reliable source out there I have found is from MiLB.com, available with a click of the mouse here. Not all players are available, only those that meet minimum appearance requirements. This is why you will not see guys like Carlos Martinez , who hasn't pitched enough innings in Winter ball, on these lists.
