Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of the daily performances by Indians prospects. This is a special fall and winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in the Arizona Fall League (AFL) and 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 fall and winter ball did yesterday.
Arizona Fall League
Carlos Moncrief (RF): 0-for-2, BB, 2 K. Moncrief stepped up to the plate three times on Wednesday and did not put the ball in play as he struck out twice and walked once. He is now 1-for-12 in 4 games in the AFL and has 6 strikeouts in 12 at bats.
Dominican Winter League
Jerad Head (RF, Tigres del Licey): 1-for-4, 2B. Head returned to the lineup on Wednesday night for the first time since November 2nd. No word on whether or not he was nursing a minor injury, but it is good to see him back in there.
Venezuelan Winter League
Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-4, RBI, K. Carrera has now recorded a hit in 8 of his 9 games this fall and is hitting .333 in those 9 games. He has also reached base in every game.
Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 1-for-3, K. Valbuena had a very good season this year at Triple-A Columbus but was not very good in short duty in Cleveland and so far this fall has looked very ordinary.
