Around the Farm: June 26, 2014 (6.27.14)

Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.

Ronny Rodriguez (3B, Akron): 4-for-4, 2 R

If Rodriguez’s bad month had come in July, following a solid three-month span to start the season, it is possible his slump would not have garnered as much attention. But since Rodriguez’s bad results came in April, they were quite noticeable for many. Yet, if we go month-by-month:

April: .130/.183/.148 line, .331 OPS, 12:4 SO:BB in 15 games

May: .269/.304/.471 line, .775 OPS, 18:5 SO:BB in 28 games

June: .299/.333/.390 line, .723 OPS, 17:4 SO:BB in 21 games

That April is just bad, yet Rodriguez started hitting and got his power back in May and June. Rodriguez was always a toolsy player and far from a finished product, and right now, he is showing those tools. Overall, Rodriguez is improving his approach, likely has a little more positive regression coming as his .287 BABIP continues to stabilize, and owns a nice Eastern League-average .123 isolated power on the season. At 22 years old, Rodriguez is still advanced for his age and, outside of one bad month, is not having a terrible 2014 season. Read More…
