Around the Farm: July 24, 2012
Zeke Carrera is just killing it in Columbus, and like last year, may be the best player there right now. Juan Diaz is playing his best baseball of the season, and perhaps even of his entire career. Preston Guilmet is the iceman, and clearly doesn't let implosions effect him longer than about a minute. At the top of the heap is a guy that's used to leading the "pack." I know, mystic...so find out who it is...after the jump...

Smoke Signals 7/24: Buying, Selling or Quitting?
The Yankees may have pulled off the surprise of the deadline with the trade for Ichiro. The White Sox made the first couple of moves with Youkilis and Brett Myers. The Tigers pull in a big-time starter in Anibal Sanchez. The Indians...The Indians...The Indians...well...they sure like to talk about Windows? With Tony vacationing on the great American beaches, join Jim and the IPI as they talk trade deadline...

Tim Fedroff continues to make a play to make it to the big leagues. He's done everything except steal Johnny Damon's jersey and 5 o'clock shadow. Matt Pagnozzi blasted two home runs on the night, showing off a bit of that family pedigree. The headliner continues to show up skills that should get him at least to Triple A. Find out who, after the jump...

2012 fourth round draft pick, D'vone McClure belted his first professional home run in a three-hit performance in only his second professional ball game. Felix Sterling continued one of the strangest up-and-down seasons of recent memory. The top spot of ATF goes to a guy that spent a whole lot of time this season in the top three. Find out who...after the jump...

Ezequiel Carrera is hitting .317 over his last 44 games, and Tim Fedroff is hitting .384 over his last 20 games. Both are making a play for a potential bench role this year, should an injury force the Indians hand. Chris Seddon and Jake Sisco continue to pitch well, while Mahoning Valley hits like garbage. The top slot goes to perhaps my favorite player in 2012. Find out who that is, after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie & Ontario: "Clark, we're stuck under a truck"
Enough treading water. The Indians need to make a move. With many saying this team can't win, or wait until next year, Jim Pete is off that bandwagon. This team can win, and win now. A big bat and a #2 or #3 pitcher could turn the tide. Easier said than done? Let Antonetti worry about that, it's his job...but get it done. Join Jim Pete on the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario as he rallies the trade wagons...after the jump...

Cody Allen called up to the Indians
Cody Allen was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 23rd round of the Major League first-year player draft last June 7, 2011. On July 20, 2012, Cody Allen was promoted to the Cleveland Indians, completing one of the quickest progressions through the Indians organization in recent memory. Find out the details from IPI's Jim Pete, after the jump...

Tyler Cannon is a name that not many people have been paying attention to in the Indians system, but he's quietly becoming a factor in the system, both offensively and defensively. The Lake County offensive crew seems to be back on track and loaded for bear, led by some pesky infielder named Lindor. At the top of the charts on Wednesday night is one of my favorite players in the system...if only the Indians would feel the same way...

Jared Goedert continues to do everything offensively you could want from a minor leaguer, and plays multiple positions. Cody Allen continues to dominate at a high level...well...at every level. T.J. House continued his comeback story in grand fashion this season. The top spot of ATF goes to a kid who has completely forgot about the month of April, when several questioned whether or not he was even a legit prospect. Check out just WHO that is, after the jump...

Todd Hankins had a first for ATF tonight. He's the first guy to get into the top three without playing in the field, and without getting an at bat. Chris Seddon got into the top three tonight by pitching a perfect game through six innings before giving up his first hit. The top guy got in for just dominating over the past couple of months in Akron...and without ever being thought of as a top prospect. Find out who that is, after the jump...

While I'd love to throw up some mystery opener to my birthday edition of ATF, why would I even bother. Sure, some kid went 4-for-4 in Lake County, with his seventh dinger. Sure, some kid hit his 12th homer in Carolina, and a grand slam to boot. But the story of the night was Giovanni Soto, who pitched his first career no-hitter for Akron. It doesn't get any batter than that. Of course, who were those other two cats? Find out, after the jump...

Akron Aeros Giovanni Soto throws no-hitter
The Indians traded Jhonny Peralta to the Detroit Tigers for a soft-tossing, 19-year-old Giovanni Soto in 2010. Soto has gone under the radar since the deal, but things are likely to change after he pitched the first no-hitter in Akron since Jeanmar Gomez threw a perfect game in 2009.

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: "Time, is on our side?"
As our resident co-editor Jim Pete takes in his birthday this fine Sunday, he also ponders the great wonders of time. Will the Indians time be in 2012 or 2013, or will GM Chris Antonetti pull the plug on this "window" and move onto the next. The market is a fickle thing, and he may not have a choice. Join Jim at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, as he ponders whether or not the Indians win a series before his birthday's end, after the jump...

Can Joseph Colon lay claim to being the best starter in the Indians minor league organization? With Jordan Smith showcasing new power and the same ole' reliable stick, is he becoming a top ten sorta prospect? Is Jorge Martinez about to burst upon the scene as an offensive superstar? Did the guy who went toe-to-toe with Dylan Bundy last night, and won, get the top spot at ATF? Tune in, after the jump, to find out.

Triple and Double A both played their all-star games on Wednesday Night, as several members of the Aeros and Clippers played, with mixed results. Aaron Siliga and Charlie Valerio continued their hot play at Mahoning Valley, while Jake Lowery is starting to rebound a bit in Lake County. The guy at the top of ATF isn't unfamiliar with his perch, but it's been awhile. He'll introduce himself...after the jump...

Fishing for Mudcats: "How to generate momentum..."
The Carolina Mudcats stormed the second half in the Carolina League to open up the season, but lost their momentum during the Fourth of July festivities. With Jesus Aguilar heading to the Future's game, and Jeremie Tice and Tyler Holt getting promoted, the Muddies struggled to maintain their high-second-half-level of play. Grab the ole' fishin' pole with Jim's weekly Mudcat's Notebook...
