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: (W, 7-2) 8 IP, 5 H, 4 BB, 5 K. Another not overly impressive start from Gomez, but a solid, quality outing nevertheless. In his last ten starts, he's 6-2 with a 2.23 ERA. In that time span, he has 2 complete games (1 shut out), allowing 55 hits in 68.2 innings. He's surrendered 17 ER/R and 23 walks, and also striking out 56. Batters are hitting .227 against him. I'd be shocked if he weren't pitching in Cleveland again by the end of July.
- Ezequiel Carrera - CF, Columbus: 2-3, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 SB. Carrera continues to produce night in and night out and as I mentioned last time, it's getting more difficult to ignore this kid.
- Jason Kipnis - 2B, Columbus: 1-4, R, 3B, RBI, BB. A typical game from Kipnis, who is a consistent producer for the Clippers.
- Jason Donald - SS, Columbus: 1-3, R, RBI, 2 BB. We finally have a sighting of Jason Donald, who really fell of the radar for a while due to injury.
- Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B, Columbus: 0-3, 2 RBI, BB. The stat line may not look like much, but 2 RBI and not even getting a hit, job well done still.
- Jordan Henry - CF, Akron: 3-4. Talk about really breaking out of a funk. Was hitting near .200 in his past ten games, then goes 6-8 in two games.
- Beau Mills - DH, Akron: 2-4, 2B, RBI. Mills continues to rebound from injury and has looked better at the plate this season than last.
- Austin Adams - SP, Akron: (L, 5-7) 4 IP, 6 H, 6 ER/7 R, 3 BB, 5 K, HR.
- Marty Popham - SP, Kinston: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 ER/R, BB, 3 K, HR. Popham won't wow you in the box score, but he keeps his team in the game.
- Rob Bryson - RP, Kinston: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 K. One of our top relief prospects with a quality outing out of the 'pen for the K-Tribe.
- Preston Guilmet - CP, Kinston: (S, 17) IP, H, BB, K. Can Guilmet really be the new Cory Burns? Possibly. I really like what I see from Guilmet.
- Tony Wolters - SS, Mahoning Valley: 2-4, R, 2 3B, K. Showing a bit of speed, hitting two triples on the day. Slowly, Wolters is heating up at the plate.
- Bryson Myles - RF, Mahoning Valley: 1-4, R, 3B, RBI, K. After Opening Day, Myles as cooled at the plate as of late, but that's nothing a triple can't help to fix.
- Anthony Dischler - RP, Mahoning Valley: 2.1 IP, 7 H, 4 ER/R, BB, 2 K, HR. For a guy who is supposed to be one of the "best" pitching prospects in Mahoning Valley, he sure didn't pitch that way. I also use the term "best" loosely in this case.
