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.
Bo Greenwell - LF, Kinston: 2-4, 3 R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB. Greenwell has been struggling at the plate lately, as well as much of the Kinston offense, so it was nice to see Greenwell and the offense as a whole have a break out game. Greenwell started the season off hot in April, hitting .304, but in the month of may, he's hitting .240. Greenwell has a tendency to fall back down to Earth, but not generally this early. He really needs to find some consistency and work through his slumps a lot quicker in order to have some success.
Casey Frawley - SS, Kinston: 2-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 5 RBI. Frawley has usually been the guy who performs in the games where no one else does in the Kinston line up. He's had an up and down year so far, but really has been an anchor in a sinking Tribe offense.
Adam Abraham - 3B, Kinston: 2-4, 2 R, 2B, RBI, BB, 2 K. Here's the other guy who has struggled with some consistency so far, where some at-bats, he'll really make the pitcher work and others where he gets worked.
Giovanni Soto - SP, Kinston: 5.2 IP, 11 H, 5 ER/6 R, 2 BB, 2 K, HR. Soto just turned 20-years-old and is playing in a league where most players are much older than him. Soto has performed rather well and could end up being a guy to watch going forward.
Columbus had a scheduled day off, while the rest of the affiliates were rained out.
