Around the Farm: July 17, 2012
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...

Around the Farm: July 16, 2012
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...

Around the Farm: July 15, 2012
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...

Around the Farm: July 14, 2012
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.

Around the Farm: July 11, 2012
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...

Around the Farm: July 9, 2012
Matt Packer made his 2012 debut in Carolina a solid opening salvo to regain his status as a prospect by pitching three strong perfect innings. Joseph Colon continued his outstanding 2011 campaign with another quality start. Todd Hankins rolled out four hits and two stolen bases for Lake County. Tonight's ATF headliner is a former third-round pick who has really picked it up over the past month. Who? Find out...after the jump...

Around the Farm: July 8, 2012
Luke Carlin continued his hot play with a grand slam, helping the Clippers and David Huff to a much-needed win. ChunChen returned to play catcher, while Thomas Neal continued his scorching summer play. Tony Wolters upped his streak to 13 games, and Tyler Naquin won a game in the eleventh. At the top of ATF is a guy who got a surprise cup of coffee with the Tribe earlier this season, and blasted his way to eight RBI on Sunday night.

Around the Farm: July 7, 2012
Jacob Lee and Louis Head continue to dominate the New York/Penn League and are making a case to be considered elite relievers in the system. Steven Wright's knuckleball needs to start knuckling again. Jeremie Tice has hits now in 12 of his 13 total games. Tonight's ATF leader is a guy that many probably have never heard of, but he's been playing well of late, and makes his first headlining appearance under my watch...after the jump...

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Treading water edition
The Indians middling at or near .500, and July has turned into a battling ground to find out whether or not they are a legit contender, or just a small market failure. With Grady Sizemore and Roberto Hernandez out of sight/out of mind, and with Carlos Santana in site and struggling, can the Tribe stop being a .500 team, and become something more? Join Jim Pete for his weekly rendition at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario...

Around the Farm: July 4, 2012
The Columbus Clippers and Lake County Captains each provided fireworks with no less than eight ballplayers on each team with multiple hits, and every player finding a way to get on base. Ryan Rohlinger celebrated his recent Triple A promotion with a grand slam, while Jose Ramirez had three more hits in Lake County. The star of the ATF show is an outfielder in Akron, who continues to climb back up the prospect charts. Find out who it is, after the jump...
