Around The Farm: December 3, 2013
Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of the daily performances by Indians prospects. This is a special fall and winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in offseason winter ball leagues. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in the game.
DOMINICAN WINTER LEAGUE (LIDOM)
Erik Gonzalez (Leones del Escogido, 2B): 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K. The lone Indians performance on the night was yet another solid effort from Gonzalez. His hit extended his hitting streak to three, a sign that his recent rough stretch may be behind him. The walk was also just his third this offseason as he now has 3 walks and 39 strikeouts for an 11:1 strikeout to walk ratio (hint, that's not very good).
Carlos Santana (Leones del Escogido): Santana has yet to play, according to the IBI's Tony Lastoria, Santana has been working out in the Dominican Republic and has been playing in Instructional League games there at third base. He says that the plan is to activate Santana on his winter ball team roster around the 10th of this month. If so, it should give him about 2-4 weeks to show what he can do at third base.
