The IPI's Steve Orbanek returns with this week's edition of Then & Now. Steve takes a look at the career of Adam Abraham, who just completed his fifth season in the Indians system.

Chris Jones is thankful for his new opportunity
It is Thanksgiving, which is time when so many of us get together with our families and enjoy lots of food and spirits, watch football, and prepare ourselves for the madness that is the start of the holiday season.

Then & Now: Jesus Aguilar

AFL Spotlight: T.J. House
The Arizona Fall League season officially comes to a close with the league championship game later today, but for all the Indians prospect playing in the AFL their season came to an end on Thursday.

AFL Spotlight: Trey Haley
If you want a name to keep an eye on in the Indians farm system that maybe does not get talked about a lot but has the potential to impact the big league team in the near future, then right-hander Trey Haley is one you should definitely watch closely. The hard throwing righty has made big strides since moving to the bullpen, and Tony recently caught up with him and talked about his 2012 season and experience in the Arizona Fall League.

AFL Spotlight: Matt Packer
Indians left-handed pitching prospect Matt Packer came into the 2012 season with a lot of promise, but a shoulder injury in spring training changed things. He missed the first half of the season and spent the rest of the year playing catch up. He is currently pitching in the Arizona Fall League, and Tony recently had a chance to sit down and talk to him about how things are going and how his shoulder feels.

AFL Spotlight: Ronny Rodriguez
Few players are more fun to watch than Indians shortstop prospect Ronny Rodriguez.

He is currently out in the Arizona Fall League showcasing his talents and having a fine showing there, and Tony recently talked to him about his AFL experience and his 2012 season.

AFL Spotlight: Shawn Armstrong
Outside of right-handed reliever Cody Allen, no other player moved through the Indians’ system so quickly and at the same time saw his value soar more than right-handed reliever Shawn Armstrong. He piggybacked his strong 2012 campaign with a trip to the Arizona Fall League to continue to test his abilities, develop his stuff, and prove he is ready for a big league opportunity at some point in 2013. Tony recently spoke to him out in Arizona and has all the details on how things are going for him.

Then & Now: T.J. McFarland
T.J. McFarland just completed an up-and-down season for the Akron Aeros and Columbus Clippers. Now, the left-handed starter is very much on the radar of the Major League club. But what does the future hold for McFarland? Is he a pitcher in the mold of Aaron Laffey or Jeremy Sowers? Or is he something more? The IPI's Steve Orbanek looks back at McFarland's career in this week's edition of Then & Now.

Then & Now: Danny Salazar
The lack of impact arms in the Indians farm system has been addressed on many occasions. However, thankfully, there does seem to be one pitcher that currently projects as an "impact arm." Danny Salazar just completed a brilliant 2012 campaign and is now very much on the radar of the big league club. The IPI's Steve Orbanek looks back at his career in this week's edition of Then & Now.

Then & Now: Paolo Espino
Paolo Espino recently capped off his sixth season in the Indians' farm system with a brilliant performance in the Eastern League Championship Series. Yet despite his success, Espino looks to be on the verge of minor league free agency. If he is indeed a free agent then there is no guarantee he'll be back with the club. IPI's Steve Orbanek takes a look back at Espino's career in this week's edition of Then & Now.
