Orbiting Cleveland: Can ZMac extend the rotation and bullpen?
Zach McAllister seems to be ready to reclaim his place in the starting rotation this coming Tuesday after a successful start on Thursday night in Columbus. Can McAllister help solidify this rotation enough to allow the Indians to avoid the tough July trade market? In doing so, could he also help right the ship to a struggling bullpen? Jim Pete hijacks Orbiting for One Night Only with his take on an Orbanek favorite.

Around the Farm: July 13, 2013
The Indians organization just had one of those nights in which everyone seemed to bring out their whipping stick, and at every level. The headliners for the night are three years apart at the same level, but should be close in the end-of-the-year prospect rankings. Who are these two? Join Jim Pete, as he returns to weekend ATF duty in lieu of Steve Orbanek, who had the audacity to get married.

On Monday Night, the Indians pulled out two wins, and both in a dramatic fashion. The Mudcats managed to win their first second half game, and in walk-off fashion. Lake County overcame getting two-hit on the night to pull out a 1-0 win. There are some interesting names on the board tonight, with Joe Wendle leading the way thanks to a new power surge.

There were some major players in Sunday's ATF, as several top prospects had a big night for the Indians' organization. All the affiliates save the Carolina Mudcats won, giving lots of opportunities for solid performances. Leading the way on Sunday was a left-handed starter that is surging, a reliever that's making a case for time in the bigs, and perhaps the best prospect in all of baseball. Join Jim Pete for this Sunday's ATF.

Fishing for Mudcats at the All-Star break
It’s been a short week here in Carolina, thanks to the much needed All-Star break.

Join Jim Pete as he goes Fishing for Mudcats, as the summer kicks off in Carolina...

Long term planners at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians have been about as consistent as badly cooked oatmeal. The team wins and loses in streaks that only Will Farrell running to the Quad would enjoy. While that might add a few more grey hairs to most Tribe fan's heads, it's unfortunately part of a process to build a team from the depths to the playoffs. Jim Pete takes a look at the reality of the 2013 Indians, and shares his love of the Tribe's rock solid (huh?) rotation, from his weekly perch at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario...

There are days when this job is fun, and there are days when you just want to call it a night. Tonight, unfortunately, it was the latter, as the only two Indians' affiliates that were playing combined for eight total hits, and were both shut-out. There really was no joy in Mudville tonight, but there was one multi-hit performance, and an interesting start of note for a potential high upside lefty. Join Jim Pete for Monday Night's ATF.

You really have to love the nights when all of the affiliates lose. Tonight was such a night, but one player really stood out as a potential break-out candidate if he can continue to play at the high level that he's been performing at over the past month. Join Jim Pete as he takes a look at Lonnie Chisenhall, Jordan Smith, Chris Perez and even Daisuke Matsuzaka in the Sunday edition of ATF.
