Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of the daily performances by Indians prospects. This is a special 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.
Australian Baseball League
  • Andrew Campbell (DH, Brisbane Bandits): 1-for-4, BB, K, SB. Campbell continues to play well of late and in his leadoff role got on base in 2 of his 5 plate appearances. He has a 7-game hitting streak and while he is only 9-for-36 (.250) in his last 10 games he also has 6 walks and has a solid .357 on-base percentage. Not much more you can ask in the playoffs from such a young, inexperienced player.
  • Mitch Nilsson (C, Brisbane Bandits): 2-for-4, RBI, BB. Nilsson is another guy who is suddenly getting a lot of playing time. He had only played in 10 games and piled up 33 at bats the entire ABL season before last night, but he went out and had his best game by far this offseason getting on base in 3 of his 5 plate appearances and driving in a run.
