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.
Australian Baseball League
  • Mitch Nilsson (C, Brisbane Bandits): 1-for-3, 2 R, 2B, BB, K. Even though he has been with the team for over a month, Nilsson has only played in 4 games in the ABL. As an inexperienced 20-year old low level prospect, that is what happens. He is now 2-for-12 at the plate this offseason.
Venezuelan Winter League
  • Asdrubal Cabrera (DH, Leones del Caracas): 0-for-2, R, BB. After a hot start in his first game piling up 3 hits, Cabrera is now 0-for-6 in his last 2 games. He is 3-for-10 overall in 3 games with 1 walks and has yet to strike out.
  • Jesus Aguilar (PH, Leones del Caracas): 1-for-1, RBI. Asdrubal Cabrera is getting a firsthand look at the potential future first baseman of the Indians, Jesus Aguilar. Aguilar has a ways to go still before he is big league ready, but he’s just having a dandy of an offseason so far.
  • Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 1-for-3, BB. A nice job by Carrera as the leadoff guy getting on base 2 times.  He is having a solid showing in Venezuela as he leads the league in triples (5) and is second in stolen bases (10).
  • Rob Bryson (RP, Bravos de Margarita): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. Bryson pitched for the first time in 10 days and had a good outing. In 13 appearances this fall in Venezuela he has a nice 2.79 ERA, though in 9.2 innings he has allowed 10 hits, 2 homers and 8 walks.
