Around The Farm: May 29, 2013
Things were busy on the farm Wednesday, with all of Cleveland's affiliates in action and Lake County completing a doubleheader. Great performances rolled in from throughout the system, with major league options impressing in Columbus, top prospects shining in Akron and Carolina, and a Lake County prospect hitting his first home run of the season. The headlines, however, belonged to a dominant Carolina pitcher and a returning reliever making his first appearance of the season. To find out who these players are and find out all you need to know about Wednesday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Launching off with the Aeros: 5/21/13 – 5/27/13
The Akron Aeros stumbled over the past week, dropping five of seven games and falling to a 22-29 record. After the team's recent string of losses, the Aeros are 10 games behind the Erie SeaWolves and only 1.5 games ahead of the last-place Altoona Curve. The Aeros may be fading, but that does not mean the entire team performed badly. A newly-added outfielder put on a show, a pitcher left his early season struggles far behind, and a top prospect just may be turning the corner. To find out who these players are and everything you need to know about the team, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

Holt's defense and all out approach has people taking notice
Canal Park received a makeover this past offseason with a brand new state-of-the-art video scoreboard, and Tyler Holt has put the video screen to good use. The Double-A Akron outfielder is a human highlight reel in the outfield crashing into walls and diving for balls, and it is that defensive ability and all out approach that has people taking notice.

Urshela is focused on baseball and improving every day
When asked if he has any hobbies outside of baseball, Akron Aeros third baseman Giovanny Urshela said no. The focus is all on baseball for Urshela. The 21-year-old infielder is swinging the bat well, hitting .275 in his first 39 games at the Double-A level, though his on-base percentage is lagging behind. Urshela has a plan to improve that, though, as he looks to improve himself as a ballplayer every day.

Around The Farm: May 23, 2013
You know it's going to be a good night when LeVon Washington is involved. The Lake County outfielder was up to his normal tricks, showing the all-around game that makes him one of the most dynamic prospects in the entire organization. The bats were also out in force in Akron, as the Aeros scored 11 runs and routed the Baysox. One bat in particular stood out as his power and overall talent took over the game. To find out who he is and all you need to know about the night in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Around The Farm: May 22, 2013
The rains held off in the minor leagues Wednesday night, not subjecting those games to the wet quagmire the major league team had to slog through. Akron hosted Rehab Wednesday with two major league pitchers on rehab assignments, Carolina had a hard time scoring runs, and Lake County furiously tried to come back from a 9-3 deficit with a five-run ninth. The highlight of Wednesday, though, was a top prospect maybe, just maybe, beginning to break through after a season of struggle. To find out who this is and read all about the night in the minors, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Launching off with the Aeros: 5/14/13 – 5/20/13
Things just did not come together for the Akron Aeros over the past week as the team dropped five out of six games and fell to 20-24 on the season. This Akron team remains young and talented, though it lacks the consistency needed to rise to the top of the Eastern League standings. Despite the losing, there were plenty of exemplary performances, major league pitchers making cameo appearances, and an outfielder risking life and limb to make plays. To read all about the week in Akron and find out all you need to know, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.
