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.
Jason Kipnis - 2B, Columbus: 3-4, 2 RBI, BB, K. Talk about making a strong case to be promoted. Looking at his numbers, you'd think they were video game stats. In his last ten games, he's hitting .343 (12-35), with 14 R, 3B, 3 HR, 6 RBI, and 10 BB/12 K. Also in his past ten games, he has a .489 OBP/.657 SLG/1.146 OPS. Although he's been playing out of his mind, I by no means want to see him in Cleveland in the very near future. At earliest, call him up in late August.
- Ezequiel Carrera - CF, Columbus: 3-4, 2 R, K. Carerra does nothing but produce and continues to make his case for a call up.
- Jason Donald - 3B, Columbus: 2-4, 2 R, BB. It's quite nice to see Donald healthy and performing at a high level again. Unfortunately, there's not much room for him in Cleveland.
- Tim Fedroff - LF, Columbus: 3-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 3 RBI. Picking up right where he left off in Akron, Fedroff's bat continues to carry him.
- Luis Valbuena - SS, Columbus: 1-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, K. It's amazing how many members of the Clippers really do belong in Cleveland. Fact of the matter is Valbuena is another player who is "suffering" as a result of being blocked in Cleveland.
- David Huff - SP, Columbus: (W, 8-2) 6 IP, 4 H, ER/R, 4 BB, 7 K, HR. Huff has really been an anchor in the Clippers rotation this season and while you probably won't see him in Cleveland soon, I still find myself rooting for the guy.
- Ben Copeland - LF, Akron: 2-4, 2 R, K. One of the newly signed players to the Cleveland organization, Copeland has hit the ground running for the Aeros.
- Juan Diaz - SS, Akron: 2-3, R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB. A guy who hasn't been talked about much this season is Diaz. He hasn't put up flashy numbers, but he's certainly proved his worth in the Aeros lineup.
- T.J. McFarlane - SP, Akron: 6 IP, H, 0 ER/1 R, BB, 5 K. McFarlane has also been flying under the radar to some extent this season. By no means has anyone given up on him as a prospect, but with the depth of starting pitching within the organization, he's been somewhat overlooked lately.
- Adam Miller - RP, Akron: IP, 2 H, 2 K. One of the feel good stories this season has been Miller's rebound from injury. We can only cross our fingers that he can stay healthy.
- Jeremie Tice - DH, Kinston: 1-3, R, RBI, K. The K-Tribe offense is beginning to sputter again and Tice has tried to change the tide.
- Rob Bryson - RP, Kinston: 2 IP, H, BB, K. One of our top relief prospects with a quality outing out of the 'pen for the K-Tribe.
- Preston Guilmet - CP, Kinston: IP, K. Guilmet has definitely risen up my prospect ranks as he continues to dominate hitters.
- Jordan Casas - CF, Lake County: 3-5, R, K. After being activated from Arizona, Casas has swung a hot bat for the Captains out of the gate.
- Bryce Stowell - RP, Lake County: 1.2 IP, 2 H, ER/R, 3 BB, 3 K. Stowell continues to work through his rehab assignment, hitting a rough patch.
- Bryson Myles - RF, Mahoning Valley: 3-5, 2 2B. After finally adjusting to the professional game, Myles has hit the ball extremely well.
