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.
Chad Huffman, 1B-COL: 4-5, 3 HR (4), 10 RBI, 5 R, BB
Um…wow. Huffman came into last night’s game on a modest 4 game hitting streak, and then exploded for one of the biggest offensive night’s I can remember for any Indians prospect in a 19-3 win over the Louisville Bats. Even after last night’s offensive outburst, Huffman is hitting just .261. But he’s now leading the team in HR and RBI, and he’s 2nd in runs scored. Overall, Huffman is not an elite prospect by any means, but he sure had a good week at the plate last night.
Nick Hagadone, RP-AKR: 2 IP, H, BB, 4 K
Hagadone with yet another dominant relief outing last night. The big lefthander has been carving up the Eastern League so far in 2011. He has made 5 appearances, pitched 10 2/3 innings, and struck out 14 while walking just one. For a guy who struggled with his command last year in both starting and bullpen roles, that’s an incredibly encouraging sign. He’s also given up just 6 hits and has yet to allow a run. Opposing hitters are batting .162 against him. The 25-year old power lefty is positioning himself for a serious run at the big league bullpen this year, and personally I believe he makes it to the corner of Carnegie and Ontario at some point in 2011.
