This offseason, a number of San Diego Padres prospects are traveling across Central and South America to participate in various offseason leagues. As we do every Sunday, we’ve compiled how each player is performing in one convenient post.
For many San Diego Padres prospects, the offseason doesn’t mean a halt to their extreme grind as they attempt to become major league baseball players, but it does provide a chance to play in front of their hometown friends and family. Currently, leagues are underway in Venezuela, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, with more beginning in Puerto Rico and Australia in the coming weeks.
As we do every Sunday, let’s go through each on-going league and take a quick look at how each and every Padres prospect is performing. Let’s start with looking at a few pitchers who made the short trip to Mexico.

This might be the last chance Chris Huffman has with the Padres, unfortunately, his time in Mexico hasn’t been extremely positive.
Through his first three starts, Huffman is 0-2 with a 4.32 ERA. In 16.2 innings of work he has given up eight runs on 14 hits and has posted an 8/7 K/BB ratio.
