Around The Farm: October 11, 2012
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 Indians players in fall and winter ball did yesterday:
Arizona Fall League
- Ronny Rodriguez (2B): 2-for-4, 1 R, 1 SB. Rodriguez did a good job last night of getting on base and making something happen. It was Rodriguez's single and stolen base that set the table for Scottsdale to tie their game in the top of the ninth (though they ultimately lost).
- Tyler Holt (RF): 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 SO, 1 E. Holt followed a similar path as Rodriguez, singling, stealing a base, and scoring in the third inning.
- Trey Haley (RP): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 SO. No walks, no wild pitches, no hit batters; this is what we want to see from Haley. The control still needs some work (only nine of Haley's 16 pitches were strikes), but it is hard to complain about a three-up-three-down inning.
Venezuelan Winter League
- Jesus Aguilar (1B): 0-for-3, 1 K, 1 HBP, 1 E. It was a rough start to the winter season for Aguilar, as the top prospect only managed to reach base after being hit by a pitch and committed an error in the field.
