Clippers drop series opener to Bats, 5-3
Chris Nelson continues to be the bane of the Clippers existence.

Around the Farm: May 29, 2014
It was a tale of two offensive explosions Thursday night. On one hand, the Akron RubberDucks erupted for 16 runs, led by a stellar performance from Bryson Myles. On the other hand, the Columbus Clippers allowed 18 runs, capped off by turning to Elliot Johnson to close out the game on the mound. Elsewhere, Adam Plutko made his Carolina League debut, Lake County *only* allowed eight runs (breaking the mold set by Akron and Columbus), and much more. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down and takes you Around the Farm.

Clippers overpowered by Knights, 18-9
Some days a lineup can seem like they can hit anything and everything. That feeling must not be common for the last-place Charlotte Knights (18-35), but they certainly had a night to remember as they recorded 20 hits in an 18-9 victory over the Columbus Clippers (24-28)

Trend Spotting: Jesus Aguilar and a case study in ballpark effect
Tracking Jesus Aguilar throughout the minor league system it appeared that he had two tangible skills worth monitoring, on-base ability and power, which if developed would carry him to the big leagues. He had a big jump in his power numbers early this season with a transition to Huntington Park in Columbus, and the IBI's Michael Hattery offers up a case study as to why we need to take offensive performances in Columbus (and Akron) with a grain of salt.

Around the Farm: May 28, 2014
With the month of June approaching, it is likely the time worthy players will start earning promotions to the next level. Adam Plutko started the process, moving from Lake County to Carolina, but a few others look primed to make jumps of their own. Lake County infielder Paul Hendrix is one, as he continues to rake, as is fellow Captain Jordan Milbrath. However, Wednesday's headliner, Cole Sulser, is not as close to a promotion as Hendrix or Milbrath, but the right-hander was impressive in his own right. Join Jim Piascik as he analyzes Sulser's turnaround and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Clippers plate eight, beat Knights

Adams' return to form has been impressive
Before right-hander Austin Adams had surgery on his throwing shoulder in May 2012, he was riding the crest of the wave. Over the 2010 and 2011 seasons, Adams threw 243 strikeouts in 248 innings in Single-A and Double-A. Then an injury came, threatening to make him another hurler derailed by the treatment table. But Adams hasn’t let that happen. The IBI's Grant Miller recently sat down with the talented righty to talk about his return from injury and recent success.

Errors, cold bats plague Clippers, swept by Bulls
It takes a lot to shake a team – or a player – out of a slump. The most important ingredients in doing so are solid defense and consistent hitting. To get anywhere, there must be at least one of those two. The Columbus Clippers (22-26) are a team in a slump, and the absence of both those traits led to a 5-1 loss against the Durham Bulls (30-21) on Sunday evening.

Clippers fall to Bulls 3-1 in pitching duel
The way it’s going for the Columbus Clippers (22-24) right now – if it’s not one thing it’s another. Lately, on night’s they can’t pitch, they hit.

In today's massive-sized Minor Happenings that is well over 5000 words, the IBI's Tony Lastoria takes a look at how outfielder Tyler Naquin continues to improve every area of his game and really has just one question mark remaining and how he is working to answer that.

Around the Farm: May 22, 2014
The Columbus Clippers were on national television Thursday night, but the best story on the farm came from Ryan Merritt. The left-hander continued to impress in 2014 as he dominated in a unique way given the trends of today's game. In addition to Merritt, Lake County starter Dace Kime furthered his case that his early struggles are behind him, the Columbus bullpen essentially had open tryouts for the majors, Anthony Santander got two-thirds of Lake County's hits (not in a good way), and much more. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down and takes you Around the Farm.

Clippers fall short, lose to Bulls 7-5
