Around the Farm: January 8, 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 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. The Australian Baseball League was off on Tuesday.

Venezuelan Winter League

  • Ezequiel Carrera (LF, Navegantes del Magallanes): 2-for-4. Overall, Carrera has gone 38-for-134 in 36 games this winter. He’s been a consistent performer throughout his minor league career, and that has also been the case this winter. Hopefully, we happen to see some more of that consistency this year at the Major League level.

Dominican Winter League

  • Jose Ramirez (2B, Toros del Este): 3-for-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI. That brilliant winter campaign continues for Ramirez, who has now gone 57-for-183 in 48 games. He showed some rare power on Tuesday by launching a home run, which happened to be his first home run this winter. Power is one of the only areas where Ramirez is lacking so while it’s wishful thinking, it would be great if Tuesday was the start of a trend.

Puerto Rican Winter League

  • Roberto Perez (DH, Indios de Mayaguez): 0-for-2, 2 BB, 1 K. Even though he wasn’t able to muster a hit, Perez still got on base twice by drawing two walks. His plate discipline has been an area where he’s been impressive this winter, as he’s now drawn 13 walks and struck out 12 times in 21 games.
