Jesus Aguilar the next impact rookie in Fantasy?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) I can't tell you how happy I am to see the Indians finally call up slugger Jesus Aguilar. I've been pleading for it to happen for a few weeks now, writing about him in a previous Prospects Report and chanting for it to happen on Thursday morning's podcast.

So who is Jesus Aguilar? Well, you won't find him high on many prospect lists. Coming into the season, he wasn't considered a top 10 prospect in the Indians' farm system by MLB.com or Baseball America. Though, he was listed as a top 20 prospect by both media outlets.

Aguilar has been a pretty good contact hitter in his minor-league career, but he always had moderate home run power for a first baseman, which is why he wasn't burning up the prospect rankings. But he hit seven home runs and slugged .519 through 37 games for Triple-A Columbus, so it seems he might finally be developing his power swing.

It's interesting the Indians have chosen now to promote Aguilar after winning eight of their last 12 games and with the offense picking up after a slow start. Manager Terry Francona said he's not taking first baseman Nick Swisher out of the lineup and likes Lonnie Chisenhall platooning at DH. Though, it seems Aguilar will be a backup corner infielder (he has been learning third base) and likely the right-handed bat in the DH platoon with Chisenhall.

If he works his way into regular playing time, Aguilar might get some mixed-league consideration in shallow formats. For now, he's worth an add in AL-only formats and deeper mixed leagues.


Indians promote first baseman Jesus Aguilar


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) The Indians have promoted first baseman Jesus Aguilar to the majors, according to ESPN.

Aguilar is mashing at Triple-A. Through 152 plate appearances, he's hitting .298/.395/.519, with seven home runs. It's unclear how the team plans to get Aguilar into the lineup at this time. 


Jesus Aguilar opening eyes, but call up not imminent


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Indians first base prospect Jesus Aguilar is on a tear to open the season at Triple-A Columbus an is making a case for a callup, but the team may not have a spot for him right now.

"He's doing a really good job," manager Terry Francona told MLB.com. "I guess the way he plays would probably [influence a promotion]. I mean, we're not going to put [first baseman Nick Swisher] on the bench, but you don't ever know what's going to happen health-wise. If he ends up being a possibility here, we'd be thrilled, because that means he's doing really well."

Aguilar is hitting .337/.430/.606 with seven home runs and 17 RBI in 29 games to open the season. He impressed last season with Double-A Akron, but was hitless in 15 at-bats during the spring before being sent down. Francona did leave the door open for Aguilar's promotion down the line.

"We're not calling him up [right now]," Francona said. "He needs to play, but at some point, you never know."


Francisco Lindor one of a dozen sent down by Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Stud shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor headlined a group of 12 Indians reassigned to minor league camp on Wednesday. Lindor will likely open the season at Double-A Akron, but could be promoted to Triple-A quickly thereafter.

Other notable prospects sent down were outfielders Tyler Naquin and Carlos Moncrief, first baseman Jesus Aguilar, catcher Tony Wolters and pitcher Austin Adams.


Jesus Aguilar has monster campaign in winter league


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Indians first base prospect Jesus Aguilar had quite the offseason in the Venezuelan Winter League. The 23-year-old prospect hit .327 with a .403 on-base percentage, .597 slugging percentage, 1.000 OPS, 18 home runs and 50 RBI in 58 games.

"It was crazy," Aguilar told The Plain Dealer. "I never thought about hitting home runs. I never thought about that. I just tried to help my team."

Aguilar said his teammates in Venezuela and veteran major leaguers Bobby Abreu and Alex Gonzalez helped him with his approach this winter.

"(Abreu) told me you have to have a good routine if you want to be a good player and good hitter," Aguilar said. "(Gonzalez) told me to try and have control of every situation and prepare myself before every at-bat."

The Indians have taken notice of Aguilar's progress. He hit .275 with 16 home runs, 28 doubles and 105 RBI in 130 games for Double-A Akron last season. Although Aguilar is expected to begin the season at Triple-A Columbus, he could put himself in line for a promotion to the majors this season.

"Jesus has raw power," said Ross Atkins, Indians' director of player development. "The thing that stands out is the professionalism of his at bats."


Indians add five to 40-man roster, DFA Cord Phelps


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) The Indians added first baseman Jesus Aguilar, infielder Erik Gonzalez, outfielder Carlos Moncrief and pitchers Austin Adams and Bryan Price to the 40-man roster Wednesday. The team also designated infielder Cord Phelps for assignment.

Aguilar hit .275/.349/.427 with 16 home runs and 105 RBI in 499 at-bats with Double-A Akron last season. Gonzalez hit .254/.293/.417 with nine home runs, 76 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 508 at-bats between Class A Lake County and high Class A Carolina. Moncrief hit .284/.354/.470 with 17 home runs, 75 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 489 at-bats with Double-A Akron.

Adams went 3-2 with a 2.62 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 76:29 K:BB ratio in 55 innings with Double-A Akron. Price went 2-3 with a 2.04 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 92:16 K:BB ratio in 75 innings between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus.

Phelps went 0 for 9 in four appearances with the Indians while also hitting .267/.333/.443 with nine home runs and 46 RBI with Triple-A Columbus.


Indians start to discard players


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2013) The Cleveland Indians made their first roster moves of the spring Tuesday and assigned the following players to their minor-league camp: outfielder Jeremy Hermida, first baseman Jesus Aguilar and pitcher Edward Paredes.

Aguilar expediting status


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2013) MLB.com reports Indians first base prospect Jesus Aguilar might be the best pure power hitter in the team's farm system. "He has the ability to hit the ball a long way," Indians director of player development Ross Atkins said. "He's already an accomplished first baseman. It's early in his career. He has moved relatively quickly. The Arizona Fall League attention, the performances he's had in winter ball, the home runs he has hit in winter ball, those have expedited some things for him."
