Around the Farm: January 30, 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 the Caribbean Leagues. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in the game.
Here is the rundown of what Indians players in winter ball did yesterday.
Venezuelan Winter League
- Ezequiel Carrera (LF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-2, 2 R, 1 BB. Zeke Carrera has to be loving life right now. Navegantes del Magallanes clinched the Venezuelan Winter League Series with an 11-9 win over Cardenales de Lara on Wednesday. Carrera had a big part in the win too as he managed to get on base twice and scored on both occasions. Carrera has now gone 53-for-195 (.272) with six doubles, two triples, two home runs, 26 walks and 27 strikeouts in 53 games. It’s been a very nice winter season for Carrera, and he has definitely been one of the reasons why Navegantes del Magallanes has been able to sustain such a long postseason run. Overall, it’s been a nice winter season for a handful of Indians players, and we’ll now get to see three of them in the Caribbean Series: Carrera, Rob Bryson and Jose Ramirez. Those players inclusion will certainly make for an interesting series. I congratulate Carrera and his teammates on what has been a great run, and who knows, maybe the best has yet to come.
