Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of the daily performances by Indians prospects. This is a special winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in 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 winter ball did yesterday. Just a quick note that there are no winter league games on December 24th and 25th in observance of Christmas, so there will be no "Around the Farm" on Sunday or Monday morning.
Colombia Winter League
  • Giovanny Urshela (3B, Cartagena Tigres): 0-for-2, R, 2 BB. Urshela goes hitless again, but with 2 walks on the night that is now 5 walks for him in the last 3 games. He is hitting just .191 in 19 games, but he is now up to 9 walks.
Puerto Rico Winter League
  • Joseph Colon (RP, Gigantes de Carolina): 1.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (0 ER), 3 BB, 1 K. Colon continues to struggle in limited action this offseason. In 6 appearances he has now totaled 5.2 innings but allowed 15 hits, 12 runs (10 earned), 1 homer, 6 walks, and has 3 strikeouts.
Venezuela Winter League
  • Jose Lopez (3B, Cardenales de Lara): 1-for-4. Lopez is hitting .307 with 5 HR, 23 RBI, and .841 OPS this offseason. Former Indian infielder Luis Valbuena is on his team, and Lopez is essentially replacing Valbuena in the Indians organization as Major League depth. Valbuena is hitting .279 with 4 HR, 28 RBI and .796 OPS this offseason.
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (SS, Leones de Caracas): 0-for-3, 2 BB. Cabrera has now played in 15 games this offseason, and in 7 of them was held hitless and in 5 of them just 1 hit. He is only hitting .231 but thanks to 10 walks has a good .365 on-base percentage.
  • Jesus Aguilar (1B, Leones de Caracas): 2-for-3, R, BB. Aguilar did not mash a homer or rip a double, but he had another good night reaching base in 3 of his 4 plate appearances. With the 2-hit night he now has his batting average up to .310 in Venezuela and sports a very good .391 on-base percentage and .552 slugging percentage.
