Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday's performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player played in yesterday's game.

Chun Chen, DH-Kinston: 2-3, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 2 R

Its only been 16 games, but an .887 OPS for a 21-year old catcher in the Carolina League is pretty good. Chen has 10 RBI since the call to Kinston, and has popped two HR's. The selection to the Futures Game and strong showing has resulted in some increased scrutiny on Chen, but he hasn't let it effect him at the plate. Chen is moving way up the prospect lists from where he was entering 2010.

Casey Frawley, SS-Lake County: 2-4, 2 HR (8), 5 RBI, 2 BB, 4 R, 2 K

Frawley had a monster day, including a 9th inning HR of a rehabbing Joel Zumaya. Frawley has been hot lately, putting up a .300/2/11 line over his past 10 games. He and Adam Abraham hit back-to-back HR's last night in the 2nd inning off of West Michigan starter Luis Angel Sanz.
  • Jeanmar Gomez, SP-Columbus: W, 7 IP, 7 H, 3 R (2 ER), 4 K, 1 BB. Back to back solid starts for Gomez, and three in a row if you count his spot start in Cleveland. Still not missing a ton of bats with 78 Ks in 116 IP.
  • Cord Phelps, 2B-Columbus: 3-3, HR (4), RBI, BB, 3 R, SB. Up to .365 in Columbus as breakout year continues.
  • Lou Marson, C-Columbus: 2-3, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, R. "Tofu" Lou is flirting with the Mendoza Line...he's still a few points south at .193.
  • Josh Rodriguez, LF-Columbus: 1-3, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, R, K. Rodriguez has a higher OPS (.893) in Columbus than he did in Akron.
  • Michael Brantley, CF-Columbus: 1-3, 2 BB. He can get on base in Columbus, why can't he in Cleveland?
  • Joe Mahalic, SP-Kinston: 6 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 4 K, 3 BB. Three of the four hits given up by Mahalic were doubles.
  • Kyle Bellows, 3B-Kinston: 2-4, HR (8), 2B, 3 RBI, R. Snapping out of a mini-slump, Bellows is 6-12 in his last three games with 3 of those hits going for extra bases.
  • Clayon Cook, SP-Lake County: 4 2/3 IP, 4 H, 2 R (1 ER), 1 K, 1 BB. 2nd solid start in a row for Cook, ERA stands at 3.59 for the season.
  • Adam Abraham, 3B-Lake County: 3-5, HR (9), 2B, 5 RBI, BB, 3 R, K. Lake County's 3/4 hitters combined for 3 HR and 10 RBI last night in a wild 16-14 loss.
  • Felix Sterling, SP-AZL Indians: W, 5 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 5 K, 4 BB. 18-year old out of the Dominican has 38 K's in just 28 IP; already 6'3, 200lbs and still has room to grow.
  • Juan Aponte, C-AZL Indians: 3-4, 2B, RBI, R. Aponte is hitting .353 for the AZL Indians, but just 2 BB.
  • Juan Romero, 3B-AZL Indians: 2-4, HR (3), 3B, 2 RBI, R. Romero is hitting just .203, but is showing some power; 6 of 14 hits have been for extra bases.
  • Oswell Munoz, SP-DSL Indians: 5 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 4 K, 4 BB. Actually a bad start for Munoz, who has an ERA of 1.91 after yesterday's outing. It was the 1st time in his last 8 starts that he's given up more than one ER.
  • Erik Gonzalez, 3B-DSL Indians: 3-4, 2 2B, R, K. Gonzalez is hitting .372 with 7 SB so far in the DSL.
