Around the Farm: January 21, 2013
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 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. The Puerto Rico Winter League was off on Monday.
Dominican Winter League:
Edward Paredes (LHP, Aguilas Cibaenas): 0.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K. Paredes came in and faced one batter in a tight situation in the 8th inning. With two on and one out he promptly walked the only batter he faced and was then removed with the bases loaded. Fortunately, his bullpen mates bailed him out as his Aguilas team was able to escape the inning with no runs being pushed across.
Venezuela Winter League:
Ezequiel Carrera (LF-CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 0-for-4, K. Carrera and his teammates have moved on to the championship series in the VWL, and their series with Cardenales de Lara begins later this week. He has had a healthy offseason piling up 172 at bats and hitting .267 with a good 23-26 walk to strikeout ratio.
