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

Jeff Moore

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).

Notes on prospects playing abroad, including Diamondbacks outfielder Ender Inciarte and Yankees infielder Jose Pirela.

There were only two games in the Caribbean on Monday night, and neither of them involved Bobby Abreu, so this isn’t the deepest update of 2014. Still, there’s always something worth noting.
