Around the Farm: August 16, 2012
The Indians system never sleeps, even when the big league club does. Ronny Rodriguez continued to show off his power with a mammoth blast in the Carolina League last night. Tyler Holt is beginning to heat up in Akron, as the Aeros push towards the playoffs. T.J. McFarland's topsy-turvy Triple A run continued with a solid performance for the Clippers. At the top of the ATF mountain is a guy who has eight hits in his last two ballgames, and no, it's not Dorssys Paulino (he only has 6). Find out who, after the jump...

It was a big night for Tribe prospects, as Dorssys Paulino continued his barrage in the rookie league with another multi-hit game. Mitch Brown showcased his top-of-the-rotation talent as well. T.J. House continued his break-out party, and Cord Phelps showed off why many think he's a major league caliber player. At the top of the list is a catcher who many think is a sleeper in the system, who hit the game winner in Mahoning. Find out who...after the jump...

Who is the top shortstop prospect in the Tribe's farm system? With every passing day, Dorssys Paulino is making a case that he deserves to be right up there with Francisco Lindor. Tuesday was no different as the 17-year-old Paulino might have just had his best offensive performance yet. Plus, the New York-Penn League hosted its 2012 All-Star Game, and a slew of Scrappers were there to participate. IPI's Steve Orbanek takes you Around the Farm after the jump...

Around the Farm: August 13, 2012
The Indians system was full of off nights and rainouts, but the lower minors had a chance to shine, as the Carolina Mudcats and the AZLIndians showcased several of the Indians top prospects doing their thing. Giovanny Urshela continued his hit streak, while Dwight Childs rolled out three hits of his own. Dorssys Paulino had another four-hit game, while the guy at the top slot also made his mark as a future shortstop in the system. Find out who, after the jump...

Tony Wolters continues to have the type of season post-April that the Indians were hoping that he'd have, hitting .298, which is tops for the Mudcats over that stretch. Lake County had about 200 players roll out multi-hit games on Sunday, in a who's who of the most talented team in the system. At the top of ATF is a guy I've been high on all season...and the bandwagon is about to fill up...after the jump...

Dillon Howard took to the mound, inducing 13 ground ball outs in a six-inning performance. Bryce Stowell and Rafael Perez returned on the relief front, for one inning of work each. Tony Wolters and Giovanny Urshela continued their hitting streaks, while the Sabour-tooth Tiger rolled out another two-hit performance. Logan Vick made an appearance in the top three, along with a couple of other guys that just don't get any respect...find out who, after the jump...

2012 Third-Round draft pick Kieran Lovegrove enjoyed his first stellar outing in tonight's Around the Farm, after starting off the season as a struggling 17-year old. Nelson Rodriguez legged out his second triple of the season, while Joe Wendle continued to own the New York/Penn League. Jordan Henry is returning to form, while Gregorio Petit is in rare form. ATF's top slots go to a returning Indians' starter, and a returning Indians' prospect...after the jump...

Matt LaPorta and Russ Canzler went back-to-back, Delvi Cid flashed his speed and a little bit of power, and Dorssys Paulino did the sort of Dorssys Paulino things that Jim Piascik just can't get enough of last night. Yet, a very familiar name managed to muscle his way to the top of Around The Farm. As always, click on the link to find out who that is and how the rest of the Tribe's minor league system did in today's edition of Around The Farm.

It was a big night for prospects in the Indians system, perhaps in celebration of the Indians ending their eleven-game hit streak. Felix Sterling rolled out seven K's in four innings of relief in Arizona. Giovanny Urshela rolled out three extra base hits in his second three-hit performance in as many nights. Roberto Perez and Paulo Espino led the Aeros to another win. The top of the ATF heap?...is a guy that could be in Cleveland...well...today...after the jump...

It definitely wasn't a showcase night for the Tribe organization, with Akron and Carolina off, and Columbus and Mahoning Valley swinging wet noodles. Lake County managed to walk-off with a win, with Jose Ramirez keeping his average near .350 on the year, and Bryson Myles starting to regain his prospect footing after injuries threatened to derail him earlier this year. The AZL Indians continued to rake, but the top spot in ATF goes to Mr. Walk-Off himself. Find out who that is, after the jump...

Dillon Howard had a decent outing on the night, and while it wasn't stellar, it was better than his mostly drab outings so far in 2012. Roberto Hernandez struck out nine against only one walk, but gave up four home runs. Jerrud Sabourin racked up another two-hit ballgame, and Jordan Smith hit his sixth homer on the season. Check out Sunday's ATF for the rest of the Tribe headliners...

The AZL Indians are loaded for bear with offense right now, and while the league is clearly skewed in that direction, there are several interesting prospects that lit it up on Saturday Night. Second baseman Claudio Bautista led the way for the Indians with his best game this season so far. Leading ATF is a 2012 pick who had his first multi-hit ball-game. Find out who, after the jump...

With Ezequiel Carrera and Vinny Rottino's promotions to Cleveland, could that pave the way for Thomas Neal to receive a promotion to Columbus? His numbers certainly suggest so. Also, Jeanmar Gomez has shown two very different sides of himself since being demoted to Columbus? So, which Gomez was on display Friday night? Take a look after the jump...

The Indians continue to fade, none of their affiliates won last night, and one of them was nearly on the wrong end of a perfect game. Baseball wasn't kind to Northeast Ohio last night, but there are always bright spots to be found. Whether it's an outfielder in Columbus doing everything he can to be called up, a starter in Akron continuing his resurgence or a reliever in Carolina dominating after an injury, there's always something to hang your hat on. Join Jim Piascik as he takes your Around The Farm.

Jose Ramirez had a perfect night at the plate, and Francisco Lindor had another three-hit ball game. Mike Rayl showcased a solid outing, and Jacob Lee looked solid in another outing. Tonight's top of the heat belongs to another starter that seems to find his way here on occasion, even though he's not even close to the top talent with regards to starters. Tonight, there was no one better. Find out who, after the jump...

Bryson Myles followed up Monday Night's three-hit ballgame with another. Matt LaPorta hit his first home run since July third. Roberto Hernandez didn't pitch all that well, but Giovanni Soto and Danny Salazar did. At the top of the heap was a former major leaguer, who just can't seem to find his way back to the bigs. Find out who, after the jump...

Danny Jimenez threw out five innings of no-hit baseball tonight, a night in which two of the Tribe affiliates had the night off. Tyler Naquin rolled out a three-hit performance, which is made even more impressive by the fact that the Scrappers only had four total hits, and no walks. The top spot sees a three-hit game from a player that has struggled a bit with injury this season, but is really trying to return to 2011 form.

The Indians had a lost weekend in Minneapolis, but their minor league teams continue to plug away with some good and some not-so-good performances. In Columbus both Tim Fedroff and Ezequiel Carrera have been on fire, but the one player in the system who may be playing the most consistent ball over the past month and a half is Mahoning Valley's Joey Wendle. Find out about him and more after the jump...

Night after night, two particular Columbus outfield prospects continue to hit and hit. Their recent streak would have to come to an end sometime, right? What about Friday? Take a look for yourself after the jump.

He's baaaaaaack! The man we all grew to love (and sometimes hate) made his return to stateside ball last night at Lake County. I figured he was a shoe-in for the top slot, no matter what a recent draft pick (or anyone else) did, but that was before the massive offensive explosion in Columbus, led by a certain outfielder. As always, click the link to find out who he is as Jim Piascik takes you Around The Farm.
