Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday's performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday's game.
Jeanmar Gomez - SP, Columbus: (W, 7-2) 8 IP, 5 H, 4 BB, 5 K.Another not overly impressive start from Gomez, but a solid, quality outing nevertheless. In his last ten starts, he's 6-2 with a 2.23 ERA. In that time span, he has 2 complete games (1 shut out), allowing 55 hits in 68.2 innings. He's surrendered 17 ER/R and 23 walks, and also striking out 56. Batters are hitting .227 against him. I'd be shocked if he weren't pitching in Cleveland again by the end of July.
Ezequiel Carrera - CF, Columbus: 2-3, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 SB. Carrera continues to produce night in and night out and as I mentioned last time, it's getting more difficult to ignore this kid.
Jason Kipnis - 2B, Columbus: 1-4, R, 3B, RBI, BB. A typical game from Kipnis, who is a consistent producer for the Clippers.
Jason Donald - SS, Columbus: 1-3, R, RBI, 2 BB. We finally have a sighting of Jason Donald, who really fell of the radar for a while due to injury.
Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B, Columbus: 0-3, 2 RBI, BB. The stat line may not look like much, but 2 RBI and not even getting a hit, job well done still.
Jordan Henry - CF, Akron: 3-4. Talk about really breaking out of a funk. Was hitting near .200 in his past ten games, then goes 6-8 in two games.
Beau Mills - DH, Akron: 2-4, 2B, RBI. Mills continues to rebound from injury and has looked better at the plate this season than last.
Marty Popham - SP, Kinston: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 ER/R, BB, 3 K, HR. Popham won't wow you in the box score, but he keeps his team in the game.
Rob Bryson - RP, Kinston: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 K. One of our top relief prospects with a quality outing out of the 'pen for the K-Tribe.
Preston Guilmet - CP, Kinston: (S, 17) IP, H, BB, K. Can Guilmet really be the new Cory Burns? Possibly. I really like what I see from Guilmet.
Tony Wolters - SS, Mahoning Valley: 2-4, R, 2 3B, K. Showing a bit of speed, hitting two triples on the day. Slowly, Wolters is heating up at the plate.
Bryson Myles - RF, Mahoning Valley: 1-4, R, 3B, RBI, K. After Opening Day, Myles as cooled at the plate as of late, but that's nothing a triple can't help to fix.
Anthony Dischler - RP, Mahoning Valley: 2.1 IP, 7 H, 4 ER/R, BB, 2 K, HR. For a guy who is supposed to be one of the "best" pitching prospects in Mahoning Valley, he sure didn't pitch that way. I also use the term "best" loosely in this case.
