Aroiund the Farm takes a quick look at how some of the prospects throughout the Indians system performed in yesterday's games. As always, the positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterdays game.
The Clippers split a doubleheader yesterday, while Akron broke out their big bats and pounded Altoona. Kinston won on a walk-off walk in the bottom of the 9th, and Lake County used a strong starting pitching performance to pick up another W. All in all, it was a pretty good day throughout the system yesterday.
Kelvin De La Cruz, SP-ARK: 4 2/3 IP, 5 ER, 6 H, 8 K, 3 BB
In between starts last week, De La Cruz was working with pitching coach Tony Arnold on his balance point and driving off his plant leg. He's been showing good velocity this year, as he's finally back and throwing with full confidence after his elbow injury that he suffered back in 2009. De La Cruz admitted that he was a little hesitant to really cut it loose last year, but is throwing with no restrictions in 2011. He has 50 K in 35 2/3 IP to go along with a 3.28 ERA. If he can just cut down on the walks (26 so far this season), he will be back to being an elite pitching prospect in the organization.
