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
  • Roberto Perez (C): 1-for-2, R, 2 BB. A nice game by Perez who reached base in 3 of his 4 plate appearances. He has played well his last 10 games hitting .344/.500/.656 during that time period, and his .400 OBP and .500 SLG in 15 fall games is great to see.
  • Preston Guilmet (RP): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K. A great outing for Guilmet in what may be his final outing of the AFL season. He has been on a roll since his disastrous October 20th outing when he allowed 5 runs in 1.2 innings as he has thrown 6.1 shutout innings and allowed 2 hits, 1 walk and has 6 strikeouts in 5 games since.
Dominican Republic Winter League
  • Jerad Head (RF-1B, Tigres del Licey): 0-for-4, K. After two consecutive multi-hit games Head came up empty with an 0-for-4 effort last night. In his last 10 games he is hitting just .225/.238/.400.
Venezuelan Winter League
  • Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 0-for-3, 1 BB. At least Valbuena is being consistent this fall in that he is not hitting but is getting on base via the walk. He is now down to .237 with the batting average, but thanks to his 19 walks which ranks 5th in the league he has a good .366 on-base percentage.
  • Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-4, K. Carrera’s numbers have steadily declined since a very hot start, but he is still hitting .300/.357/.483 in 15 games this fall.
