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.

Jeanmar Gomez - SP, Columbus: 8 IP, 3 H, ER/R, 3 BB, 4 K.
After being sent back to Columbus, Gomez's first two starts didn't go the way he would have liked them to and was unimpressive. In his first two appearances, he pitched a combined 10.2 innings, allowing 10 hits and 7 earned runs/runs. He also allowed one home run and surrendered 5 walks, while striking out 12. In his three starts since, he's pitched a combined 23 innings, allowing 14 hits, 4 earned runs/runs, and surrendering one home run. He's also walked 8 and struck out 13. Breaking the numbers down, in his first two starts, he pitched an average of 5.1 innings, allowing 5 hits, 3.5 earned runs/runs, 2.5 walks, and striking out 6.5. In his three starts since, he's pitching an average 8 innings, allowing 5 hits, 1 earned run/run, 2.5 walks, and striking out 4. His strike out-to-walk ratio is slightly down, but he's allowing less hits and runs, which is an encouraging sign from Gomez.
  • Jason Kipnis - 2B, Columbus: 2-3, 2B, RBI, BB. Kipnis walked with the bases loaded in the top of the tenth, which proved to be the winning run.
  • Jared Goedert - 1B, Columbus: 1-4, RBI. The only other Clipper to drive in a run, as Goedert gets back in the swing of things from injury.
  • Zach Putnam - RP, Columbus: 2 IP, 3 H, BB, 2 K. Putnam closed the door for Columbus, earning the win.
  • Matt McBride - 1B, Akron: 3-5, 2 R, 2 2B, 3 RBI, K. McBride certainly deserves a call up, but there's no where to place him on an extremely crowded Clippers roster.
  • Beau Mills - DH, Akron: 2-4, 2 RBI, BB, K. He followed up a poor outing last game, rebounding to drive in two for the Aeros.
  • Kelvin De La Cruz - SP, Akron: 3 IP, 3 H, 3 ER/R, 5 BB, 4 K. Command continues to haunt De La Cruz this season and is becoming a legitimate concern going forward.
  • Paolo Espino - RP, Akron: 6 IP, 3 H, ER/R, 6 K. Akron couldn't have asked for a better relief appearance from Espino, who really saved the day.
  • Delvi Cid - CF, Kinston: 2-4, 3 R, 2B, BB. Once considered a sleeper prospect has really dwindled in a struggling Kinston offense.
  • Jeremie Tice - 1B, Kinston: 3-5, 2 R, RBI, K. Of all the games I've seen Tice play, I've came away impressed. He must stay healthy.
  • Adam Abraham - 3B, Kinston: 3-5, R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI. After laying essentially a goose egg last game, the K-Tribe offense came alive, due in large part to Abraham, who has been a surprising contributor this season.
  • Abner Abreu - RF, Kinston: 2-4. One prospect who has really declined in my eyes is Abreu, who has all the potential in the world, but has yet to live up to it.
  • Giovanny Urshela - 3B, Lake County: 2-4, R, HR, RBI, 2 K. In his past ten games, Urshela is hitting .194.
  • Steven Wright - SP, Lake County: 7 IP, 6 H, 2 ER/R, 3 BB, 4 K. Not one of Wright's more impressive starts this season. Nevertheless, still a solid outing that he gave the Captains.
