Around the Farm: November 27, 2014
Fedroff in action in Mexico highlights the night on the farm
Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. 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 yesterday’s game.
Here is the rundown of what Cleveland players in winter ball did yesterday:
Mexican Winter League
- Tim Fedroff (RF, Mayos de Navojoa): 1-for-5, 1 SO. Fedroff’s time in the Mexican League has not gone particularly well through his first six games -- with the 27-year-old posting a .451 OPS and 8:2 SO:BB -- and while it is early, this is a continuation of his struggles stateside over the past two seasons. Following a .316/.394/.485 line in 123 games between Double-A and Triple-A in 2012, Fedroff dropped off to a .240/.341/.308 line in 235 games from 2013 to 2014 while also seeing himself sent back to Akron this past July. But while Fedroff’s ascent to the major leagues seems stalled at this point, the outfielder is still hanging around and is the type of grinder that is putting in the time down in Mexico this offseason.
