I have seen a comment or two asking for an update on Astros' fall and winter league performance.  Since I was curious to look up those stats for the Dominican, Venezuelan, and Arizona off-season leagues,  it doesn't hurt to expand this to a story.  As most of you know already, off-season league stats should be taken with a grain of salt.  The Arizona Fall League has some top prospects as well as a few suspects.  The Dominican and Venezuelan winter leagues are mixed bags, in terms of the quality of players.  And of course the sample sizes are quite small.  Still, it's nice to see how Astros' prospects are performing in the off-season.

Jose Altuve, Jimmy Paredes, Brian Bogusevic, and Jay Austin are among the hitters who have gotten off to great starts.  Among the pitchers, Sergio Perez also has gotten off to a nice start.  Dallas Keuchel has pitched quite a bit in the Arizona Fall League with some mixed results.  Several of the pitchers have been used as relievers, and the sample sizes are quite small at this point.
