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. NOTE:  All performances from the Akron Aeros game are through seven innings.  The game was suspended at that point due to rain tied at 3-3. Chun Chen (Akron, DH) – 1-2, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 HR – While an incomplete performance (see note above), it is still the best in a short night of baseball in the Indians farm system.  In his three plate appearances thus far in the contest, he has picked up a walk (from which he later scored on a Carlos Moncrief sacrifice fly) and a solo home run.  This performance continues a strong start to the season for Chen who, while maybe not Major League material, is definitely deserving of a shot to DH at Triple-A Columbus and may have the makings of someone who can make a decent living for several years as a “AAAA” guy. Jacob Lee (Carolina, SP) – L (0-3), 5.2 IP...
