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 was playing in yesterday's game.

Drew Pomeranz - SP, Kinston: 5 IP, 3 H, BB, 4 K.
After two weeks off, Pomeranz looked sharp in his return to action. He continues to show good command and dominates the batters that he faces. After his start, he lowered his ERA to 1.85, which is incredible. He's looking like everything we had hoped for and more when we drafted him nearly a year ago. There's not a doubt in my mind that following this season, he'll become our top prospect and will be an anchor in the Tribe's rotation for many years to come.
  • Cord Phelps - SS, Columbus: 0-4, K. It hasn't been often lately that you see Phelps go hitless and have an off night.
  • Lonnie Chisenhall - DH, Columbus: 2-4, R, 3B. After falling into a bit of a funk again as of late, Chisenhall looked sharp at the plate and smoked a triple to dead center field, which also broke up a perfect game.
  • Jordan Henry - CF, Akron: 1-3, RBI, 2 BB, K. It seems like every game, Henry at least produces some offense for the Aeros and this game was no different.
  • Chun Chen - C, Akron: 2-4, 2 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI. Chen has really come on as of late and is hitting .285 on the year. Have to wonder if we may see him in the Future's game again.
  • Beau Mills - 1B, Akron: 0-4, RBI, K. He's really struggled since coming off the disabled list, but giving Mills the benefit of the doubt, he did miss significant time, so it's natural to be rusty coming out of the gate.
  • Matt Packer - SP, Akron: 2.2 IP, 9 H, 7 ER/R, K, 3 HR. What a disastrous outing for Packer, who struggled to keep the ball in the yard.
  • Adam Miller - RP, Akron: IP, 5 H, 3 ER/R. It was a bad day in general for Aeros pitching and Miller was no exception.
  • Bo Greenwell - RF, Kinston: 2-4, 2B. What little offense Kinston has this season, Greenwell has been a major contributor to it.
  • Kinston offense - For the game, they hit a combined 5-30 (.167), walking four times and striking out 13 times. There's no doubt this offense continues to struggle big time.
  • LeVon Washington - CF, Lake County: 1-4, R, 3 K. Another guy who has struggled coming out of the gate is Washington, who is hitting .200. Not sure how healthy he really is or if it's just an adjustment period he's going through.
  • Carlos Moncrief - RF, Lake County: 2-4, R, 3B, HR, RBI, K. Moncrief really crushed the ball each time he saw it, as indicated.
  • Anthony Gallas - LF, Lake County: 3-3, R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB. What's left to say about Gallas? Night in and night out, this guy has produced.
  • Michael Goodnight - SP, Lake County: 5 IP, 3 H, 4 BB, 8 K. A player who has really flown under the radar this season is Goodnight, who is quietly putting together a great season.
