Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of the daily performances by Indians prospects. This is a special 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 (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 2-for-4, R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB. One of Carrera’s best games in awhile as he reached base in 3 of his 5 plate appearances and pounded out 2 extra base hits. The homer was his 2nd this offseason.
Rob Bryson (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 1.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 1 K. Only Bryson’s third outing in three weeks. His opportunities have been limited, but that is the life of a prospect in a place where winning is everything in Venezuela.
Jesus Aguilar (PH-DH, Leones del Caracas): 1-for-2, 2B, 3 RBI, BB, K. It doesn’t matter where Aguilar has played this year, he just continues to hit and be a run producer. He came in late as a pinch hitter and got the deciding 3-run double in extra innings.
Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 2-for-3, RBI, BB. Valbuena is on a mini hot streak as in his last two games he is now 6-for-8 at the plate with a homer and 4 RBI. He also has 21 walks and 21 strikeouts in 34 games.
