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
Jesus Aguilar (1B): 1-for-4, R, 3 K. Aguilar is still hitting .354/.466/.667 in 12 games but he has cooled some after a hot start going 6-for-21 with 7 strikeouts in his last 5 games.
T.J. McFarland (SP): 3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K. Another very good outing for McFarland who has now made four starts in the AFL and is 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA.
Cory Burns (RP): 1.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R/ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 0 HR. Burns was a strike throwing machine throwing 15 of his 19 pitches for strikes, but he was in the zone too much as he got hammered for 3 runs on 5 hits. In his last two outings he has allowed 6 runs on 9 hits in 2.0 innings.
Venezuelan Winter League
Rob Bryson (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Bryson with a perfect outing with 6 batters up and 6 batters down. His first appearance in over a week as he last appeared in a game on October 14th.
