Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.

Jesus Aguilar (Columbus, 1B) - 3-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 1 K - The RBI Machine continues to dominate International League pitching as he batted in four more runs on the night to bring his Triple-A season total to 32 in 48 games.  This coming only four days after a six-RBI effort.  He keeps making it harder and harder for the Tribe Brass to keep him down in Columbus.

  • Tim Fedroff (Columbus, LF) - 1-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB - Fedroff's good eye at the plate allows him to have a good night despite getting only one hit.
  • Zach McAllister (Columbus, SP) - ND, 4 IP, 5 H, 1 BB, 2 K - McAllister continues to pitch well in his rehab stint in Columbus.  It would hardly be surprising to see him back in the Wahoo rotation soon.
  • Gabriel Arias (Columbus, RP) - W (2-2). 3 IP, 1 H, 4 K - Arias recovers from a horrendous start his last time out eating the innings left over by Zach's rehab start in dominant fashion.
  • Joe Wendle (Akron, 2B) - 2-4, 1 RBI - One of only two multi-hit efforts on a rough night for the RubberDucks.
  • Anthony Gallas (Akron, LF) - 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K - And here's the other.  Gallas seems to be adjusting to the Double-A level quite well, posting his third straight multi-hit stat line in only his fourth game of the season for the Mallards of Main Street.
  • Duke von Schamann (Akron, SP) - L (3-1), 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R (both earned), 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR allowed, 1 WP, 1 HBP - A decent outing for the Duke of Canal Park, but it went for nothing due to poor run support and...
  • Adam Miller (Akron, RP) - 1 IP, 3 H, 2 R (both earned), 1 BB, 1 K, 1 WP, 1 HBP - I'm beginning to wonder if Miller is tiring out (or even hurt).  His decline in performance is too sudden and too steep to be a simple slump.
  • Joe Sever (Carolina, 1B) - 3-3, 1 BB - Sever's recent hot streak continues with this perfect night at the plate.  He is now .364/.447/.394 in his nine games played thus far this season.  He may have a trip to Canal Park in his no-so-distant future.
  • Luigi Rodriguz (Carolina, RF) - 1-2, 2 BB - Luigi's plate discipline provides the only other notable offensive performance of the night for Carolina.
  • Shawn Morimando (Carolina, SP) - ND, 6 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 6 K - Morimando has an excellent start and continues to pitch well at Carolina but...
  • Benny Suarez (Carolina, SP) - L (1-1), BS (1), 0.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R (all earned), 1 K - ...and Suarez combines with poor hitting to undo it.
  • Dorssys Paulino (Lake County, LF) - 3-4, 2 R - Paulino's first multi-hit effort in nine days is of the three-hit variety.  Now, if he could show more consistency.
  • Richard Stock (Lake County, C) - 2-4, 1 R, HR, 4 RBI, 2 K - Stock's three-run homer in the fourth provides all the scoring the Captains would need on the night.
  • Grant Fink (Lake County, 3B) - 2-3, 1 BB, 1 K - Fink has his second multi-hit night in his last three games after a seven game stretch in which he went 2-for-19 (.105).
  • Luis Lugo (Lake County, SP) - W (5-4), 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R (earned), 7 K, 1 HR allowed - Lugo dominates the Dragons for the first half of the game to pick up the win...
  • Caleb Hamrick (Lake County, RP) - S (1), 4 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 2 K - ...and Hamrick does the same in the second half to earn the save.
  • D'vone McClure (Mahoning Valley, RF) - 0-2, 2 BB, SB - McClure now has 5 walks in his first two games but is 0-for-3 at the plate. It will be interesting to see if he can maintain this approach this season.
  • Juan Santana (Mahoning Valley, SP) - L (0-1), 4.2, 6 H, 3 R (all earned), 2 BB, 4 K, 1 HR allowed, 2 HBP - Not a great outing by Santana, but it may have been salvageable if the offense did anything.
  • Justin Garcia (Mahoning Valley, RP) - 2.1 IP, 2 H - A solid pro debut for Garcia marks the high point of the evening for the Scrappers.

I don't see Zimmer in LC for the second half of this yr unless they a) decide to move Frazier to RF or b) decide to advance Frazier to Carolina. Especially if the put Papi in LC.

While I can see Papi playing regularly in LC, also adding Zimmer will create a logjam with the DH role they rotate to give days off for the field but keep a bat in the lineup.

Tony, When do you see Price moving up? He is really pitching well. Is there just no room for him in the org? Maybe they should trade him. Your thoughts.

It looks like we are starting to see what Lugo did last year in MHV by being are reliable SP. It will be interesting to see how he does the second half of the season at LC.

Hamrick had his second consecutive good outing. Maybe turning his bad season around.

LC could be a interesting team in second half especially if they give Zimmer and Papi the opportunity start at LC.

I don't think Adam Miller is hurt, but he is still a one-pitch pitcher right now, and the league finally caught on as many expected. I hear that they are going to ease him back into throwing his slider and see if his hand holds up, but we shall see.
