Dominican Winter League Preview

The Dominican Winter League begins play today and will run through December 21. The DWL All-Star Game will be held on December 13.

Below are the Rays players that I was able to track down in the DWL so far. MLB does not have current rosters posted so I got this information for the individual team sites. I may have missed a few players due to lack of comprehension of Spanish on my side and several rosters not posted yet (Leones del Escogido, Tigres del Licey and Toros del Este).

Here are the Rays on opening day rosters in the DWL:

  • P Chris Andujar (Estrellas de Oriente)
  • P Richard De Los Santos (Estrellas de Oriente)
  • IF Omar Luna (Aguilas Cibaenas)
  • P Joel Peralta (Gigantes del Cibao)

On an interesting note, former Ray Manny Ramirez will be playing in the DWL this winter for the Aguilas Cibaenas.

I will update this roster list once official rosters are released on in the future.


  1. Didnt Peralta already throw enough in the regular season? Maybe he should just take the offseason off for the most part.

  2. released the DWL rosters overnight. Here are a few more Rays players that will be playing in the DWL:

    C Mayo Acosta (Toros del Este)
    C Nevin Ashley (Gigantes del Cibao)
    IF Cole Figueroa (Leones del Escogido)
    IF Elliot Johnson (Gigantes del Cibao)

    One thing I noticed is that Andujar, RDLS and Peralta are listed on the rosters on the team site but not on the rosters on the MLB site.
