Around the Farm: December 2, 2014
Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. 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 yesterday’s game.
VENEZUELAN WINTER LEAGUE (LVBP) ALL-STAR GAME
Ramon Rodriguez (Estrellas del Futuro, RP) - 1 IP, 1 H - Ram-Rod was the only Indian to play in the night's contest between the Estrellas del Futuro (Future Stars) and Estrellas LVBP (LVBP All-Stars). He has had a generally solid winter, but his numbers (especially his 3.27 ERA in his last 10 games) don't reflect the dominance of his typical outings because they are skewed by a few bad outings.
DOMINICAN WINTER LEAGUE (LIDOM)
Audy Ciriaco (Estrellas Orientales, starting 3B) - 0-3, 2 K - Ciriaco has found himself in another rut as Tuesday night was his third straight hitless game. Hopefully, he breaks this slump soon.
PUERTO RICAN LEAGUE (LBPRC)
Roberto Perez (Indios de Mayaguez, C) - 0-4 - Perez is struggling mightily in winter ball recently as he is now on a five-game hitless streak and has eight games without hits in his last ten.
MEXICAN PACIFIC LEAGUE (LMP)
Tim Fedroff (Mayos de Navojoa, starting CF) - 1-3, 1 RBI, 1 K - Fedroff continues to do nothing to hurt his case to prospective teams as his hitting streak reaches six and his RBI total increases to 12 in 23 games.
