The calender has flipped to May, and the Indians organization as a whole turned the page with a bang. The Indians, Clippers, Aeros, K-Tribe and Captains all won yesterday. Add that to Usama bin Laden being killed, and it's a pretty good day in my book.
Chun Chen, C-AKR: 3-3, 2 HR (4), 3 RBI, 2 BB, 3 R
Now THAT’S what we’ve been waiting for from Chen. After a so-so April, Chen got off on the right foot in the month of May, popping HR’s # 3 and 4 on the season in a 10-1 Akron victory. Chen’s batting average rose a whopping 31 points after his monster day, and his OPS jumped from .653 to .809. Amazing what a difference a day makes. Almost encouraging as the 2 HR are the 2 BB he drew yesterday. He now has just 3 walks on the year against 19 strikeouts, which is concerning after a 38/36 K/BB ratio in 2010 for Kinston. Hopefully this is the catalyst to a AA breakout for my #8 prospect in the organization.
Drew Pomeranz, SP-KIN: 5 1/3 IP, R (0 ER), 4 H, 7 K, 2 BB
Someday, Drew Pomeranz is going to get a few runs from the Kinston offense, leave the game with a lead, and record his first professional win. That day was not yesterday though, as despite a solid 5 1/3 innings, Pomz recorded his 5th straight no-decision. Carolina League hitters are batting just .160 off of the big lefty, and he now has 34 K and 7 BB in 23 1/3 IP on the season. If you really want to pick nits, he’s yet to get out of the 6th inning in any of his starts. But the Indians are obviously going to treat their investment with great care, and he’s unlikely to throw more than 100 pitches at any point this season.
