Venezuela Winter League had no games scheduled. The Dominican Winter League season kicks off Wednesday, but the rosters haven’t been announced. I never really followed the league, so I don’t have any idea of what kind of players typically play there. I’m gonna guess that you’ll see names like Jesus Montero, Kelvin DeLeon, Abe Almonte & Jairo Heredia, but again, this is nothing more than a guess.

Update: Now that I think about it, I remember hearing that Robbie Cano hit like, .380 in the DWL last year, so I guess the league does feature both big leaguers and prospects. We’ll find out in 24-hours anywho.

    The Dominican Winter League is Big Time. It features players like David Ortiz, Miguel Tejada, Cano and Melky to name a few.

    Ortiz. The other three play defense. ;)
