Around the Farm: October 26, 2012
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
- Tyler Holt (RF, Scottsdale Scorpions): 2-for-5, 1 R, 1 SB. Holt has done well so far in the AFL and has now gone 12-for-41 with four stolen bases. The speed is certainly nice, but one troubling aspect is the fact that he has still yet to record an extra-base hit. He had showed ability during the regular season to leg out extra-base hits, but it has simply been absent thus far.
- Alex Monsalve (C, Scottsdale Scorpions): 2-for-4. 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 K. This was easily Monsalve’s best game so far in the AFL. In his previous six games, Monsalve had totaled three hits, but he almost got that total just in Friday’s contest.
- Trey Haley (RP, Scottsdale Scorpions): 1 IP. Haley made his sixth appearance Friday, and the right-hander has now pitched six straight innings without allowing a run. Aside from his AFL debut when he allowed two runs in an inning, Haley has pretty much been automatic. Just how good was he on Friday? Well, he needed just nine pitches to make it through the inning, and five of them were strikes.

Could Haley be tried as a starter do you reckon or has he proven that he is forever gonna be a back end of the bullpen heat guy?
