Around the Farm: January 8
January 9, 2012
- Andrew Campbell (2B, Brisbane Bandits): 1-for-3, BB, K, PO. You can’t stop Andrew Campbell…you can only hope to contain him. That’s how ABL pitchers have to feel of late as he now has a 10-game hitting streak and in those ten games has an impressive .359/.457/.487 with 5 RBI and a 7-6 walk to strikeout ratio.
- Mitch Nilsson (C, Brisbane Bandits): 0-for-3. Nilsson has had an opportunity to play more regularly of late starting 7 games since December 29th, but has not capitalized as he is only 5-for-22 in those 7 games.
- Ryan Battaglia (C, Brisbane Bandits): 0-for-1, K. Battaglia is the other half of the Indians’ catching duo playing on the Brisbane team in the ABL and is now just 2-for-13 at the plate with 4 strikeouts.
- Jose Lopez (DH, Caribes de Anzoategui): 1-for-3, K. Lopez is still nursing a minor injury and was limited to DH duties on Sunday. He got a hit in the 7th inning but was lifted for a pinch runner, likely to help preserve his health and not risk anything, especially considering his team was losing 9-1 at the time.
