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.
Francisco Lindor (SS, Akron): 3-for-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 SO
Well, it took 10 games, but Lindor finally struck out at the Double-A level. He added a double and home run last night after his "failure," though, as the shortstop pushed his overall line to .441/.578/.647 in those astounding first 10 games. Much like Yasiel Puig, Lindor cannot stay white-hot forever; he will soon start regressing to a more normal set of numbers. How far Lindor regresses, though, is up for debate. After drawing 10 walks and stealing five bases, Lindor is showing a mature approach and has not even come close to being phased by the promotion. I do not know what to expect from Lindor going forward, but after this past week and a half, nothing would surprise me.
Juan Herrera (SS, Mahoning Valley): 2-for-4, 1 ...
