There were no games on Monday night, so to change things up a bit, I'll take some time to let you know which notable position player prospects are struggling at the plate in the Caribbean Winter Leagues. None of these guys are going to be released by their organization because they're hitting under .200 in December, but there has to be at least a little concern that one of their top minor leaguers isn't hitting in a league devoid of many top pitching prospects. Sure, there are some crafty veterans in these leagues that can be tough on an inexperienced hitter. And many of these young prospects have been playing in games for ten months straight. Fatigue has likely set in. However, there are just as many prospects, if not more, excelling under the same circumstances and the same environment.
