Around the Farm: October 19
Here is the rundown of what Indians players in fall and winter ball did yesterday:
Arizona Fall League
- Chad Huffman (1B): 0-for-4. Huffman was like a mountain range in 2011 with lots of peaks and valleys, and so far to start his AFL season he is in one of those valley’s going 2-for-16 in his first 4 games.
- Cory Burns (RP): 1.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 0 HR. A rough 27-pitch inning for Burns who allowed 5 of the 8 batters he faced to reach base and 3 of them to score.
Dominican Winter League
- Juan Diaz (SS, Estrellas de Oriente): 0-for-4, R, K. Diaz is off to a very slow start as he is hitless in his first 11 at bats in the DR.
- Jerad Head (RF, Tigres del Licey): 1-for-4, R. Head is no longer on the Indians 40-man roster and now can control his fate on whether to decide to accept his outright assignment or declare free agency and use this fall/winter to find a better team.
Venezuelan Winter League

- Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 2-for-3, R, BB. Valbuena is the regular everyday second baseman for his VWL team at least in the early going and in 7 games has a .227/.320/.455 batting line.
