2013 MLB Draft: Sleepers, awards, and predictions
Every year after the draft IBI draft guru Jeff Ellis does a tools piece, and every year it doesn't really generate much interest. As a writer it seemed time for him to change it up a bit and shake up how he goes about this article. He wanted to make it more fun and give some awards and predictions, and he shares all of that in his latest.

2013 MLB Draft: June 21st signing update
We are now officially down to three weeks away from the July 12th signing deadline, and the Indians have 16 players officially signed with a few more coming before the deadline. It is shaping up to be a busy weekend for the Indians as several draft picks are expected to officially sign. At least three players are expected to sign on Friday or sometime this weekend, including some big names. But one high profile player has decided not to sign, which comes as a big surprise. Tony has the details...

2013 MLB Draft: Post-draft Q&A with John Mirabelli Part 2
Yesterday, Tony posted part one of his post-draft Q&A with Indians Director of Scouting John Mirabelli. Today, in part two, Mirabelli goes into depth about their preparation for the draft, the philosophy of the draft, how they manage their bonus pool money, the decision-making process that goes into the first round pick (and other picks), the negotiation process, and much more. This is a very detailed and insightful Q&A on the pre and post draft process.

2013 MLB Draft: June 19th signing update
The signings have slowed down and the news has all but disappeared this week as remaining unsigned players either stand strong on their commitments to going to or going back to college while others are weighing their options. We are still 23 days away from the July 12th signing deadline and the Indians have only signed 14 players, so roughly 8-12 more players will be signed between now and then. Tony gives an update on a few that could be next as a few high profile signings should come soon, and one is in town as we speak.

2013 MLB Draft: Post-draft Q&A with John Mirabelli Part 1
We are already almost two weeks removed from the draft and with that lots of new players are coming into the organization and a few are already making their professional debuts this week. Tony had a chance over the weekend to sit down at length with Indians Director of Scouting John Mirabelli and talk about the Indians draft. Mirabelli discussed the strength of the draft and trends we saw in it this year, the decision-making process, why he liked Clint Frazier so much, and lots more. Part 2 will post later in the week.

2013 MLB Draft: Reviewing the Indians approach in the draft
The draft has come and gone, and now it is time for IBI draft guru Jeff Ellis to post his annual post-draft review. It was a very interesting draft and as always had a lot of trends that he found while following it. He touches on the Frazier pick and why the negatives on him are a bit overstated right now, the Indians approach in the draft with selecting several smaller sized players, and their "safe" approach with their bonus pool to maybe save money to strike and sign later round guys.
