Around the Farm: July 28
July 29, 2011
- Jason Donald - SS, Columbus: 1-5, K. After swinging a hot bat for quite a while, he's cooled down a bit, hitting just .286 in his past ten games with 2 walks and 13 strike outs.
- Shelley Duncan - RF, Columbus: 2-5, R, HR, 3 RBI. Since being demoted from Cleveland, Duncan is hitting .162 in his past ten games.
- Nick Johnson - DH, Columbus: 2-3, R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB. Johnson isn't producing like most Tribe fans had expected or wanted him to, but I wouldn't give up on him just yet.
- Zach McAllister - SP, Columbus: 6 IP, 9 H, 2 ER/R, BB, 5 K, HR. Not one of ZMac's most impressive starts of the year, but he kept the Clippers in the game with six innings of 2 run baseball.
- Nick Hagadone - RP, Columbus: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER/3 R, 3 K. Scouts are slowly becoming skeptical of Hagadone's future ceiling in the bigs, in due large part because his fastball has no movement.
- Jordan Henry - CF, Akron: 2-2, R, 2B, 2 RBI, 3 BB, SB. One of the major problems with Henry's game is his lack of power. And by power, I even mean doubles/triples power. He has a slugging percentage this year of only .296, while his OBP stands at .371. He knows how to get on base, but he's a Tim Fedroff clone.
- Matt McBride - 1B, Akron: 2-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, BB. Someone who has really been swinging a hot bat of late is McBride, who boasts a .390 average in his past ten games with 11 runs driven in. He also has a .444 OBP/1.127 OPS.
- Cory Burns - CP, Akron: (S, 28) IP, 2 H, BB, K. Burns' 28 saves ranks him first in the Eastern League by quite a large magin with the next closest player to him has 17 saves.
- Jesus Aguilar -1B, Kinston: 1-3, RBI, BB. Welcome to Kinston, Jesus!
- TJ House - SP, Kinston: (L, 6-9) 3.2 IP, 6 H, 4 ER/6R, BB, K. With his ERA still hovering at 4.50, House's season can be categorized as nothing short of disappointing so far.
- Carlos Moncrief - RF, Lake County: 1-3, 2 R, RBI, BB. Moncrief continues to swing a hot bat and produce for the Captains.
- Giovanny Urshela - 3B, Lake County: 2-4, R, 2B, RBI. Urshela hasn't put up the kind of numbers most fans were hoping for this season, but he's still very young and a growing player.
- Jordan Cooper - SP, Lake County: 5 IP, 3 H, ER/R, 3 K, HR. Overall, a very solid outing from Cooper who has struggled on the mound as of late.
- Tony Wolters - SS, Mahoning Valley: 2-5, 2 R, K, SB. Wolters continues to rake in the hits and is hitting .405 in his past ten games.
- Jordan Smith - 3B, Mahoning Valley: 2-5, 2 2B, 3 RBI. Smith hasn't slowed down once since joining the team and has earned himself a well deserved promotion.
- Jake Lowery - 1B, Mahoning Valley: 2-3, 3 R, 3B, RBI, 2 BB. Lowery continues to produce in the heart of the Scrappers lineup.
