When the Indians drafted Joe Sever, few knew that his uncle was none other than John Elway. Talk about being behind the eight-ball in Cleveland. That hasn't stopped Sever from starting his career off in grand fashion at Mahoning Valley, as he's hitting over .300, and recently finished second in the NY/Penn home run derby. The only question remaining is whether or not Sever can make it to Cleveland, and change Cleveland opinions on the Elway family.

The Lake County Captains are a team full of prospective minor league ballplayers. With the exception of Francisco Lindor, none may have as much talent as Luigi Rodriguez. Rodriguez possesses that multi-tool ability that everybody covets, and while he has a long road to the majors, his plus-plus speed just may get him there early. IPI's Stephanie Metzger spent some time with Rodriguez...after the jump...
