Astros on Fall and Winter League Rosters, 2014 Edition

This is what I have compiled, from combing the rosters of all the winter ball teams. Please note that occasionally a player's name will appear on a roster, but he will end up either not playing or only playing later in the season. 

ARIZONA FALL LEAGUE - Play began October 8

The Astros contingent is playing on the Salt River Rafters, alongside prospects from the D-Backs, Marlins, Twins, and Rockies.

LHP Mitch Lambson
RHP Mark Appel
RHP Tyson Perez
RHP Vince Velasquez
C Tyler Heineman
3B Rio Ruiz
UT Joe Sclafani (taxi squad player)
OF Andrew Aplin

LIGA VENEZOLANA DE BÉISBOL PROFESIONAL (LVBP) - Play began October 9

Bravos de Margarita
IF Carlos Perdomo

Leones del Caracas
Manager Dave Hudgens

C Carlos Perez
OF Danry Vásquez
SS Gregorio Petit

Navegantes del Magallanes
RHP David Martinez

Jose Altuve is listed on the Magallanes roster, but I'm fairly sure that he won't be playing.

LIGA PARALELA (Venezuelan minor league) - Play began October 9

Caracas
OF Nestor Tejada
SS Jonathan Matute

Caribes
RHP Edwin Villarroel

LIGA DE BÉISBOL PROFESIONAL DE LA REPÚBLICA DOMINICANA (LIDOM) - Play began October 16

Águilas Cibaeñas
C René Garcia
SS Jonathan Villar

Gigantes del Cibao
RHP Jandel Gustave

Tigres del Licey
RHP Asher Wojciechowski
OF Domingo Santana
OF Ruben Sosa

Toros del Este
OF Teoscar Hernandez

LIGA DE BÉISBOL PROFESIONAL ROBERTO CLEMENTE (Puerto Rico) - Play begins October 30

Cangrejeros de Santurce

Hitting Coach Joel Chimelis (Quad Cities)
Pitching Coach Hector Mercado (GCL Astros)

LHP David Rollins
RHP Juan Carlos Santos
OF Delino DeShields
OF Alex Melendez

Melendez and Rollins are listed as reserves.

Criollos de Caguas

LHP Luis Cruz
C Roberto Peña

Gigantes de Carolina

C Carlos Corporán
C René Garcia
C Jobduan Morales

Indios de Mayagüez

RHP Josh James
SS Carlos Correa
OF George Springer

All 3 are listed as reserves. I would imagine that Carlos Correa will play a bit to get himself back into game situations.

Senadores de San Juan

SS/2B Nolan Fontana

LIGA MEXICANA DEL PACÍFICO (LMP) - Play began October 10

Charros de Jalisco
RHP Carlos Vasquez
OF Leo Heras

*Vasquez was a minor league Rule 5 Draft pick from the Mets in 2013, but he was outrighted to the Mexico City Red Devils this past season. Apparently the Astros retained the rights to him.

Tomateros de Culiacán
RHP Gonzalo Sañudo

AUSTRALIAN BASEBALL LEAGUE (ABL) - Play begins October 30

Adelaide Bite
RHP Tyler Brunnemann
IF Chan-Jong Moon

Brisbane Bandits
1B Connor MacDonald

Melbourne Aces
2B Jared Cruz

Perth Heat
C Jake Bowey (listed as a reserve)

Also, I would like to tip my hat to Mr. Ian Madden, who is the father of RHP Lachlan Madden for this roster announcement: In a recent e-mail that he sent to me, Mr. Madden informed me that Lachlan was named to the Australian team that will be playing at the inaugural Under-21 Baseball World Cup, which will take place in Taichung, Taiwan, from November 7-16. In addition to Lachlan, 1B Connor MacDonald and 2B Jared Cruz were named to Team Australia. Cruz, 19, was acquired by the Astros on September 4 as the PTBNL from the Braves to complete the Andrew Robinson trade that occurred on July 3.
