Around the Farm takes a quick look at how some of the prospects around the Indians system played in yesterday’s games. As always, the positions listed below are where the players were playing in yesterday’s games.
Alex White, SP-COL: 7 IP, 2 ER, 7 K.
Another very good outing for White yesterday, as he struck out 7 and didn’t walk a batter. White doesn’t have a decision on the year, but he boasts a 2.00 ERA and has struck out 20 while walking just three batters. He hasn’t walked anyone in his last two starts. He has more strikeouts than baserunners allowed. I’m running out of ways to say that White has pitched really, really well to open the season. If he continues to dominate in Columbus and Jenmar Gomez has a couple more starts in Cleveland where he struggles, the calls for White to get a shot at the MLB rotation will just keep getting louder.
Giovanny Urshela, 3B-LCC: 1-5, HR (1), 5 RBI, R, 3 K
Urshela got off to a blazing start in 2011, but cooled off a little in the past week. He was hitless in his last eleven at bats going into the 2nd game of the doubleheader last night, but snapped out in a big way with a 3-run HR to left in the bottom of the 1st inning to stake the Caps to a 3-0 lead. Despite the slump, Urshela still sports an impressive .327/.373/.481 line on the young season. Pretty good when you consider that comes along with gold glove caliber defense at the hot corner. If Urshela can continue to show some pop in addition to his plus-plus glove and solid hit tool, you could be looking at one of the real breakout prospects in the organization this year.
