Around the Farm: August 25, 2012
Dorssys Paulino rolled out his first really big game at short-season Mahoning Valley, but was overwhelmed by Mudcats, who dominated ATF on Saturday night with a variety of show-stoppers. Which topped the list: a seven-inning, seven K gem, a two-homer game, or a guy who managed to play every position on the diamond? Join Jim Pete as he "Tooles" Around the Farm...after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: The end of the beginning of the end?
The Indians say goodbye to another old friend this week, as it certainly looks like Grady Sizemore is gone for good...or is he? There may be more goodbyes before the 2013 season...and a potential hello as well. Join me on the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, as we we continue to hate the Yankees, and hope for the best...

Around the Farm: August 22, 2012
Ronny Rodriguez belted home run #18 last night, and is clearly a candidate to visit Akron for the playoffs. Jake Sisco was outstanding for a second straight start in Mahoning, but couldn't overcome the paltry offense. The top of ATF on Wednesday has another starter on the peak, who may just be having the best season of any starter in the system. Find out who that is...after the jump...

Fishing for Mudcats: "It's a Dog Eat Dog World..."
With the stretch drive in full swing, the Carolina Mudcats unofficially called it a season, going 1-5, and falling into last place in Carolina League Southern Division. There are 16 games left, and I'm sure the Tribe brass it's evaluation time, as the club starts looking at some of the talent for a potential move to Akron in 2013.

Around the Farm: August 20, 2012
The Carolina Mudcats were rained out, giving the system a short set of games. T.J. House saw a few of the cards tumble, as he got blitzed in only one inning of work. The Akron bullpen pitched well though, led by Preston Guilmet and Bryce Stowell. Columbus led the way on the night though, as David Huff pitched like a major leaguer, and his offense dominated once again. An intriguing shortstop prospect led the way for ATF? Who? Find out after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 19, 2012
Every once in awhile, there's a night that really has leveled off numbers, and that's what Sunday night was for ATF. Sure, there was the Lake County Captains, that are clicking on all cylinders right now, but passed that, the system is just playing well. Lee, Sever, Wendle, LRod, Myles, Sabourin, Ramirez, Aguilar, Chen and Neal are a few that make an appearance. Who's at the top? Find out...after the jump...

Howard and Sterling dominate AZL Royals
On Saturday night, two top Indians' prospects are finding their groove after struggling starts to the 2012 season as the Indians beat the Royals 5-1. Dillon Howard led off with his second straight promising start in August, while Felix Sterling rolled out his fourth straight dominating outing in relief of Howard. The AZL Indians need a run to make it to the playoffs, but boy, that pitching is starting to look really good. Check out how good, after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 18, 2012
Gregorio Petit is continuing his unsung assault on International League pitching, while his teammate, Cord Phelps, saw his three-game homer streak come to an end. Ronny Rodriguez continues to make a case for a late promotion, while Kyle Blair continues to make a case to get out of baseball. At the top of the tonight's ATF heap is a guy with five straight multi-hit ballgames. Find out who, after the jump...

Fishing For Mudcats: "I expect nothing, and got it"
The Mudcats entered week #19 at a pivotal point. The team was certainly not in contention for a playoff spot, but if they wanted to be more than just a waystation for prospects, they needed to move now. Instead, they played .500 baseball again, wasting perhaps the biggest week for any Mudcats player offensively during the entire season. The Muddies also bid adieu to Jesus Aguilar, who is heading to greener pastures...Let's Get Fishing...

Fishing with Mudcats: "We'll drive backwards"
The Carolina Mudcats are at that point in the season in which they either make their move, or fall back into the pack for good. Based upon this week of baseball, things just aren't looking good. After a two week hiatus, Fishing with Mudcats returns for a two-parter to get you all caught up with the Carolina League. Today is part one...and tomorrow we'll complete the cycle heading into next week.

Around the Farm: August 16, 2012
The Indians system never sleeps, even when the big league club does. Ronny Rodriguez continued to show off his power with a mammoth blast in the Carolina League last night. Tyler Holt is beginning to heat up in Akron, as the Aeros push towards the playoffs. T.J. McFarland's topsy-turvy Triple A run continued with a solid performance for the Clippers. At the top of the ATF mountain is a guy who has eight hits in his last two ballgames, and no, it's not Dorssys Paulino (he only has 6). Find out who, after the jump...

Columbus breaks four-game losing streak, 7-1
Columbus had both its pitching and hitting in rhythm Thursday night, and a victory against the Durham Bulls was the end result. The Clippers, after losing the first two games of their series with the Bulls, defeated Durham, 7-1, at Huntington Park Thursday. The Clippers were riding a four-game losing streak heading into Thursday night's contest.

Around the Farm: August 15, 2012
It was a big night for Tribe prospects, as Dorssys Paulino continued his barrage in the rookie league with another multi-hit game. Mitch Brown showcased his top-of-the-rotation talent as well. T.J. House continued his break-out party, and Cord Phelps showed off why many think he's a major league caliber player. At the top of the list is a catcher who many think is a sleeper in the system, who hit the game winner in Mahoning. Find out who...after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Pronkified, one last time...
Pronk is heading to an all-to-familiar place...the DL, and it's likely his last trip there as a member of the Cleveland Indians. Which Pronk will you remember? Is it the pre-30 Pronk that was sure to destroy the Indians' home run record, or was it the post 30 pronk that spent most of his day iced up? Whichever side of the coin you land on, it's not hard to forget the many big moments. With that said, it's clearly time for Pronk to say goodbye to the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario.

Around the Farm: August 13, 2012
The Indians system was full of off nights and rainouts, but the lower minors had a chance to shine, as the Carolina Mudcats and the AZLIndians showcased several of the Indians top prospects doing their thing. Giovanny Urshela continued his hit streak, while Dwight Childs rolled out three hits of his own. Dorssys Paulino had another four-hit game, while the guy at the top slot also made his mark as a future shortstop in the system. Find out who, after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 12, 2012
Tony Wolters continues to have the type of season post-April that the Indians were hoping that he'd have, hitting .298, which is tops for the Mudcats over that stretch. Lake County had about 200 players roll out multi-hit games on Sunday, in a who's who of the most talented team in the system. At the top of ATF is a guy I've been high on all season...and the bandwagon is about to fill up...after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 11, 2012
Dillon Howard took to the mound, inducing 13 ground ball outs in a six-inning performance. Bryce Stowell and Rafael Perez returned on the relief front, for one inning of work each. Tony Wolters and Giovanny Urshela continued their hitting streaks, while the Sabour-tooth Tiger rolled out another two-hit performance. Logan Vick made an appearance in the top three, along with a couple of other guys that just don't get any respect...find out who, after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 10, 2012
2012 Third-Round draft pick Kieran Lovegrove enjoyed his first stellar outing in tonight's Around the Farm, after starting off the season as a struggling 17-year old. Nelson Rodriguez legged out his second triple of the season, while Joe Wendle continued to own the New York/Penn League. Jordan Henry is returning to form, while Gregorio Petit is in rare form. ATF's top slots go to a returning Indians' starter, and a returning Indians' prospect...after the jump...

It was a big night for prospects in the Indians system, perhaps in celebration of the Indians ending their eleven-game hit streak. Felix Sterling rolled out seven K's in four innings of relief in Arizona. Giovanny Urshela rolled out three extra base hits in his second three-hit performance in as many nights. Roberto Perez and Paulo Espino led the Aeros to another win. The top of the ATF heap?...is a guy that could be in Cleveland...well...today...after the jump...

While the big league Indians are as painful to watch as the old Sylvester Stallone/Dolly Parton flick, Rhinestone right now (maybe more painful), the minor league system continues to showcase an abundance of talent. Is Scott Barnes the next great lefty reliever? Is Tony Wolters a top ten prospect? Can Ronny Rodriguez hit 20 home runs in a season? Check out who climbed the ATF mountain on Tuesday night, after the jump...
