Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. This is a special fall and winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in the Arizona Fall League (AFL) and the Caribbean Leagues. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.
Venezuela Winter League
Ezequiel Carrera (LF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 2-for-4: Carrera’s two hits didn’t factor into his teams one-run victory. He started the game off with two straight hits, and made it as far as third base, but failed to score. He’s hitting .247 in the playoffs, and .270 overall, and has been dropped to eighth in the order.
Andrew Campbell (LF, Brisbane Bandits): 1-for-4, 1 2B, 1 K: Campbell’s double was his third hit in as many games, and his second double in the past three as well. Campbell’s average is down to .275, as he’s only hitting .205 over the past ten ballgames.
Quincy Latimore (CF, Adelaide Bite): 2-for-4, 1 R, 1 BB: Latimore’s two hits continued his 10-game hit streak, as the centerfielder continues his hot offensive play down under. During the streak, Quincy is 15-for-40, with 10 runs, five doubles, two homers and 11 RBI. He’s scored runs in seven straight games, and did everything he could to get Adelaide into the playoffs, but falling short.
