Jesus Aguilar
The Indians today promoted Low-A Lake County first baseman Jesus Aguilar to High-A Kinston. In 95 games for Lake County this year he hit .292 with 19 HR, 69 RBI, and a .915 OPS. He has made significant strides this year both at the plate and defensively at first base, and the promotion to a much tougher league should serve as a nice barometer to see where he is as a prospect. He still needs to work on his plate discipline (35 BB, 95 K), but the Indians obviously feel he is up to the challenge and his bat should hopefully boost a Kinston lineup in desperate need for offense, especially with the hot hitting Abner Abreu being traded earlier today.
