Around the Farm: January 14, 2014
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 offseason winter ball leagues. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in the game.
In case anyone was wondering why there was no Around the Farm yesterday (ATF: 1/13), it is because there were no Indians in action on Monday night.
DOMINICAN WINTER LEAGUE (LIDOM) PLAYOFFS - DAY 16
Carlos Santana (Leones del Escogido, 3B): 2-for-3, 1 R, 2 BB. The night off on Monday seems to have benefited Carlos as he maintained the solid plate discipline he has displayed recently while vastly improving his hitting performance. Santana also did not commit any errors in the field.
VENEZUELAN WINTER LEAGUE (LVBP) PLAYOFFS - DAY 12
Jesus Aguilar (Leones del Caracas, DH): 0-for-4, 1 BB, 3 K. Aguilar, however, did not benefit as much from having the day off on Monday as his slump continues with Jesus picking up a hat trick while getting pn base only once due to being on the receiving end of an intentional walk. Time is running out on his chance to turn this around before the end of his winter season at the completion of the lVBP playoffs' Round Robin phase.
