Around the Farm: January 22
Australian Baseball League
- Andrew Campbell (DH, Brisbane Bandits): 2-for-4, R, BB, K. A strong finish to a good showing for Campbell in the ABL as he reached base in 3 of his 5 plate appearances last night. He finishes his time out in Australia with a batting line of .301/.387/.376 in 26 games. He also had a solid 13-16 walk to strikeout ration in 93 total at bats.
- Ryan Battaglia (C, Brisbane Bandits): 3-for-4, K, 2 PB. Battaglia had 3 singles, something new for a change as 7 of his 9 hits coming into the game had gone for extra bases. He went 5-for-8 in his last 2 games, and in his last 10 games hit .306/.342/.583. He only played in 14 games in the ABL and had 44 at bats, but finished with a solid .273/.319/.523 batting line.
- Julio Lugo (DH, Leones del Escogido): 3-for-4, 2 2B, 2 RBI, K. The deal is not yet official, but new Indians’ signing Julio Lugo had a good first night with the organization. I don’t have his playoff totals, but in 13 games with his Escogido team during the regular season he hit .163/.265/.326 with 2 HR and 8 RBI.
- Jose Lopez (3B, Caribes de Anzoategui): 1-for-5, 2 K. Lopez was a much different player in the playoffs than he was in the regular season in Venezuela. The playoff totals are not available at the moment (he hit .203), but his numbers dropped significantly in the playoffs as compared to the regular season when he hit .310/.350/.470 in 43 games.
