Around the Farm: December 3, 2012
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 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. Note, the Australian Baseball League and Puerto Rico Winter League were off on Monday and there was just one game in the Venezuela Winter League.

Carlos Santana (DH, Leones del Escogido): 0-for-4, K. Santana has now played in seven games this offseason and has been the designated hitter in each and every one of them. Whether by design to limit his exposure to injury, or if his Escogido club simply has better options at catcher and first base, it does not look like his usage in the field is going to change anytime soon. He is now hitting .200 (5-for-25) though 3 of his 5 hits have gone for extra bases and he has 4 walks.
