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.

It would appear that while we all moved past Matsuzaka after his early season troubles the right-hander  has truly started to put things back together. Since missing around six weeks and returning on June 11, Matsuzaka owns a 62:17 SO:BB, 3.51 ERA, and 3.90 FIP in 71.2 innings.

It is possible that some of his home run trouble will regress, leaving Matsuzaka with some pretty strong peripherals.
