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.
Puerto Rico Winter League
Roberto Perez (C, Indios de Mayaguez): 1-for-4, 2 K. Perez made his debut on Sunday out in Puerto Rico. After a solid showing in the AFL where he hit .226/.382/.472 in 16 games he is putting in more work this offseason to get better at the plate.
Venezuelan Winter League
Jesus Aguilar (DH, Leones del Caracas): 1-for-2, R, HR, RBI, 2 BB. It is VERY early and the offseason leagues do not typically raise or lower the stock of players, but you just have to like everything Aguilar has done this offseason in the AFL and so far in Venezuela.
Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-4, R, BB. Carrera continues to play every day and be the leadoff hitter for his Magallanes team. He has already piled up 105 at bats this fall, which is yet more experience and game action for him to get better in the field and at the plate.
Rob Bryson (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K. After just one appearance in about three weeks it looks like whatever was ailing Bryson has subsided as he has now made 3 appearances in 6 days. He has struggled in 11 games this fall allowing 10 hits and 6 walks in 8.0 innings pitched.
