Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland 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.
Venezuelan Winter League
Ezequiel Carrera (LF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 0-for-3. Carrera unfortunately grounded out on three occasions on Friday. The left-handed hitting Carrera has now gone 48-for-181, and his team trails 2-1 in VWl Championship Series.
Australian Baseball League
Quincy Latimore (CF, Adelaide Bite):
1-for-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 HR, 1 K. Latimore may have only had one hit, but he made it count as he launched a home run. The solo shot was Latimore's third of the winter season. Unfortunately, Adelaide's has already been eliminated from the ABL playoff hunt, so Latimore's season will end tomorrow night.
- Andrew Campbell (CF, Brisbane Bandits): 1-for-4, 1 K, CS. Campbell has cooled off a bit at the plate as he has now gone 41-for-149 in 42 games. Perhaps even worse for Campbell than his individual struggles is the realization that Brisbane was defeated 13-0 by the Sydney Blue Sox on Friday, and it now seems as if the team could unfortunately miss the ABL playoffs.
- Ryan Battaglia (C, Brisbane Bandits): 1-for-3, 1 K. Battaglia has now gone 19-for-80 in 24 games. His power was somewhat enticing earlier this winter season, but unfortunately, Battaglia has just one extra-base hit since Dec. 27.
