Phillies catcher Sebastian Valle leads Mexico to victory over Puerto Rico.

There’s no point in burying the lede here: Mexico won the Caribbean Series over the weekend.

The final game saw the Mexican team overtake Puerto Rico 7-1, behind, among other things, the bat of Sebastian Valle. The Phillies catcher hit a grand slam that proved to be the death knell for the Puerto Rican squad. It was an uneventful game from a prospect standpoint, but the production the Mexican team got from Valle this series brings to light the interesting road that some prospects take.

Minor League Update: Caribbean Series Game of February 6

Notes on prospects and big leaguers who stood out in the semifinal between the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

We’re down to the semifinals of the Caribbean Series, which means only one game per night. Thursday night’s game involved the Dominican Republic falling to a not-exactly-prospect-laden Mexican team. For the MLU, that means you’re getting an update on every borderline prospect in action, no matter how many times you’ve heard their names in the past two months. We’ve made it through the whole winter together. Don’t jump off the ship now.

Minor League Update: Caribbean Series Games of February 1-2

Zelous Wheeler and Deolis Guerra were among those who stood out over the weekend.

The winter leagues are over, but their winners live on. The Caribbean Series began on Saturday, which offers perhaps the greatest spectacle of pure baseball passion left in the world. While we focus on prospects here at the Minor League Update, the Caribbean Series is a combination of young players on the way up, veteran players hanging on after their days playing domestically are over, and names you may not know who never made their mark in the states, but who share iconic status in their native lands.

The Caribbean Series features the winner of each of the Caribbean winter leagues (Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Mexico, and Cuba) and rotates venues every year, with this year’s taking place in Venezuela. It even inexplicably took place in Miami for two years before professional baseball had a team there (1990-91).
