12 Jul

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.

Triple-A has not treated Chen nearly as kindly as Double-A did, but that is just part of the lumps minor leaguers take. Following up a .328/.427/.547 line in 38 Akron games with a .239/.303/.365 one in 53 Columbus games is rough, as is the change in Chen’s strikeout and walk rates (41:23 SO:BB in Akron, 60:16 SO:BB in Columbus).
