Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of the daily performances by Indians prospects. This is a special fall and winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in the Arizona Fall League (AFL) and the Caribbean Leagues.  The positions listed below are where the player was playing in the game.

Here is the rundown of what Indians players in fall and winter ball did yesterday.

Arizona Fall League
  • Chad Huffman (1B): 0-for-4, 2 K. Huffman’s primary goal in the AFL is to get work at first base, which he has done. But it is still disappointing he is not hitting well as in 17 games he has a batting line of .214/.313/.343.
  • Roberto Perez (C): 1-for-2, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB. The guy may not impress with his batting average, but Perez is doing everything from an on-base, power, and defensive standpoint to be a big league catcher someday. He is only hitting .229 but has a .377 OBP and .500 SLG in the AFL.
  • Cory Burns (RP): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K. Burns has been back to his dominating ways in his last 5 outings as he has thrown 6.0 shutout innings and allowed 5 hits, 1 walk, and has 8 strikeouts.
Dominican Winter League
  • Jerad Head (RF, Tigres del Licey): 2-for-4. Head’s first multi-hit effort since October 26th, a span of 8 games. In between his multi-hit efforts he went 5-for-27 at the plate.
Puerto Rican Winter League
  • Giovanni Soto (RP, Gigantes de Carolina): 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Soto’s third outing in Puerto Rico, and his first since November 6th. This was his longest outing by far, and he has yet to allow a run in 3.1 innings of work.
Venezuelan Winter League
  • Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-7, R, K. Carrera is still hitting over .300 but after a hot start his numbers are starting to even out. His 5 extra base hits in 12 games is still a good sign. 
  • Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 3-for-6, R, 3 BB, K. The hits have been here and there for Valbuena this fall, but on this night he managed to get 3 hits and 3 walks in 9 combined plate appearances in a double header. He now has 17 walks in 25 games which puts him in the top 10 in the league.
