Kelvin De La Cruz
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. Note, the Arizona Fall League is off every Sunday so there were no games in the AFL yesterday.

Dominican Winter League
  • Kelvin De La Cruz (RP, Aguilas Cibaenas): 0.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R/ER, 0 BB, 0 K. Another strange outing for De La Cruz as he faced just one batter before being removed. He has now made 5 appearances this fall and in 3 of them faced just one batter. In the other two he pitched two-thirds of an inning.
  • Jerad Head (RF, Tigres del Licey): 1-for-5, R, HR, RBI, 2 K. Head continues to put up a solid showing this fall hitting his 2nd homer in 13 games. It still remains to be seen if he will return to the Indians next season.
Venezuelan Winter League
  • Luis Valbuena (2B, Cardenales de Lara): 0-for-3, K. Valbuena’s performance at the plate has nosedived of late as he is just 1-for-12 in his last 3 games and 4-for-28 in his last 8 games.
  • Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 0-for-3, BB. After a hot 5-for-11 start in his first 3 games, Carrera came back down to Earth on Sunday with an 0-fer though did draw a walk.
