Winter League Update 12/4/10
The conclusion of the Arizona Fall League was the end of off-season activities for several of the Padres minor leaguers but there are still many involved in the various winter leagues that make up the Caribbean Season. I included some updates on those players with the AFL reports and will continue them here, through the end of the Caribbean season.
