Triple-A Columbus reached the All Star break on Sunday, just like the parent club in Cleveland. As Columbus rests up over the break and the rest of the affiliates continue to play on, there will continue to be some amazing stories in the minors this season. One player who has not necessarily amazed but who has made some big strides this season is Tyler Naquin, and there are others!

It was a short day in terms of games in the Indians' farm system on Tuesday and finding any performances of note (good or bad) from the Mudcats game was as difficult as the nurse's job would've been if a stone sculpture of a turnip showed up at today's blood drive at the Jake, but the IBI's Arthur Kinney is here to take us "Around The Farm" and review the notable performances on the night...

While the big league Indians may have swept the pale hose in a doubleheader at Comiskey Park (or whatever they call that place nowadays), it was a far different story in the farm system, where an Aeros victory was all that prevented an organizational sweep. So grab an airsickness bag and join the IBI's Arthur Kinney as he takes you on a turbulent ride Around The Farm...
