Around the Farm: October 26, 2013

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 and the Caribbean Leagues.  The positions listed below are where the player was playing in the game.

Venezuelan Winter League

  • Jesus Aguilar (1B, Leones del Caracas): 2-for-6, 2 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI. The big nights just to continue to come for Aguilar. The big first baseman has now gone 23-for-60 in 15 games this fall while compiling five home runs and 17 RBI along the way. What’s even better though is the fact that Aguilar has gone hitless in just one of those 15 games.
  • Ezequiel Carrera (CF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 0-for-3, 2 BB. Carrera’s modest three-game hit streak was snapped in this game, but he did manage to get on base twice via the walk. Carrera has been drawing plenty of walks this fall as he now has 11 in 15 games.

Around The Farm: August 3, 2013

Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.

 

Bryson Myles (LF, Carolina Mudcats): 2-for-4, 1 3B, 1 K.

There was not much to be pleased with after the Mudcats’ 2-0 loss to Frederick Saturday, but Myles’ performance was one of the positive takeaways. The toolsy outfielder collected two more hits to move his hitting streak to 16 games. His line now sits at .283/.345/.453, and he’s definitely increased his organizational standing a bit in these last couple of weeks. Before the hitting streak began, Myles was hitting just .242, but he has since raised his average by over .040. Myles’ recent success is pretty similar to the positive strides that Double-A Akron outfielder Carlos Moncrief has made this season. For years, the Indians have struggled to develop a legitimate Major League everyday outfielder, so it would be an enormous boost if either Myles or Moncrief panned out.
