Brewers in Caribbean Series

Caribbean Series.jpgMLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez wrote a preview of the Caribbean Series, which kicks off today on Margarita Island off the coast of Venezuela. Four teams from four countries are represented — the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.

Two Brewers are represented. Infielder Luis Cruz plays for Mexico and batted .314 during that country’s regular season. Catcher Martin Maldonado, a nonroster invitee to Milwaukee’s camp, is on the roster for Puerto Rico. He appeared in 25 games during the regular season for Mayaguez. Puerto Rico also features Minor League left-hander Efrain Nieves, who pitched for Milwaukee’s low Class A affiliate in Appleton, Wis. last summer.
New Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez played for the Dominican entry to the tournament, but he is not on that nation’s roster for the Caribbean Series. The Brewers explained Gomez’s absence from Sunday’s “On Deck” event by saying he was suffering from the flu.

Efrain Nieves is also on the Puerto Rican roster, although he’s mistakenly listed as a Mariner prospect.

Got it. I added him to the blog and asked our people to update the roster on MLB.com. Thanks for pointing that out.

Sorry I didn’t know you followed winter leagues earlier. I could have given you some links to watch some of your Brewers in winter action.
