Around the Farm: October 17
- Jesus Aguilar (1B): 1-for-4, K. Aguilar has cooled off some, but in 9 games is still hitting .364 with a .727 SLG. He has recorded at least one hit in 7 of his 9 games this fall.
- Chad Huffman (LF): 0-for-4, BB, K. Huffman is in the AFL to get some work in at first base, but with Aguilar there right now until the end of the month he will get some time in the outfield.
- Roberto Perez (C): 1-for-3, 2 R, BB, K. Perez came into the game in a nasty 0-for-15 streak after homering in the 6th inning of his first AFL game on Oct 5th, and snapped it with a hit and actually reached base in 2 of his 4 plate appearances in the game.
- T.J. McFarland (SP): 3.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R/ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 0 HR. Okay outing by McFarland as while he limited the damage with 1 run in 3.0 innings he also allowed 5 baserunners and threw just 27 of his 51 pitches for strikes (53%). Still a groundball machine with 5 groundouts to 1 flyout.
- Preston Guilmet (RP): 1.1 IP 3 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 1 K, 0 HR. They often say that a good or bad performance in the AFL doesn’t really change anything….but I think when a pitcher with question marks struggles or succeeds in the AFL something can be taken from that.
- Cory Burns (RP): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 0 HR. Burns has not skipped a beat in his 4 outings so far in the AFL where in 5.0 innings he has allowed 3 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and has 2 strikeouts.
- Juan Diaz (SS, Toros del Este): 0-for-4. Diaz started and made his winter league debut in the Dominican Republic and take an 0-fer in his first game.
