Launching off with the Aeros: 8/20/13 – 8/26/13
The Akron Aeros had a decent week -- winning four of their seven games -- though it was not enough to get them back into the playoff picture. One more loss (or an Erie SeaWolves win) eliminates the reigning Eastern League champions, though things are not all bad. Akron's bullpen dominated, as did two early-season heroes who had slumped of late. To find out who they are and everything you need to know from the past week, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

Breaking down the September callup options for the Indians
The Indians players enjoyed a much needed off day on Monday, but the organization was still hard at work in the offices at Progressive Field and on site at Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus evaluating September callup options for the stretch run. Tony checks in and goes through a list of 21 players at Akron and Columbus that are being considered for callups and provides insight into why they will or won't be called up by the Indians. Will Jose Ramirez fill a utility role? Does Jesus Aguilar get called up? What about Kyle Crockett or Bryan Price? He answers all of that and more in his latest...

B-Mets strike early and often, defeat Aeros 10-2
The Binghamton Mets scored early on Brett Myers and never let up, beating the Akron Aeros 10-2 Saturday night at Canal Park. Myers -- who started for the Aeros (63-69) on a major league rehab assignment -- did not look good.

Minor Happenings: Frazier's start is great, but caution needed

He also provides several comments from the front office on some lesser talked about players at Lake County such as Luis Morel, Jeremy Lucas, Richard Stock, Joe Sever and others, and provides insight into Jose Ramirez’s big league future, Francisco Lindor’s season being over, the breakout year for Erik Gonzalez and much more.

Around The Farm: August 22, 2013
Even though Danny Salazar has come up to the major leagues and gotten results, the organization has not done the best job of developing starting pitching in recent years. There are a few pitchers making waves now, but long-term success will rely on more than one or two arms. Joseph Colon is one of those guys Cleveland needs to develop in order to have more starting depth and he showed what he is capable of Thursday. To read all about Colon's night and everything else you need to know about the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm.

Sloppy defense allows Aeros past B-Mets 7-3
The Binghamton Mets came into Akron Thursday night fresh off of clinching the Eastern Division. Not that the Akron Aeros cared. The Aeros (62-68) defeated the B-Mets (81-50) by a score of 7-3 thanks to four Binghamton errors and a four-run first inning.

Around The Farm: August 21, 2013
The ups and downs of a long baseball season can affect even the best players. There was a point when Carolina second baseman Joe Wendle and Lake County right-hander Dylan Baker were red-hot, yet of late, the pair had struggled. That was not the case Wednesday night as both broke out in big ways. To read about their night and everything you need to know about Wednesday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm.

Packer, Bullpen Bring Hammer Down on SeaWolves
If the title of Wednesday’s Akron game at Erie was “The Return of Matt Packer,” then the sub-title might have been “Business As Usual.” Packer, the Aeros all-star lefty, dealt seven innings of three-hit, one-run baseball to earn his 11th win of the season, as the Aeros defeated the SeaWolves, 5-1, at Jerry Uht Park. The Aeros (61-68) took two of three games in the series.

Minor Happenings: Baker is shooting up the ranks
In this week’s opening Minor Happenings salvo, Tony takes a look at the excitement that is brewing with Low-A Lake County right-handed pitching prospect Dylan Baker and why he is one of the Indians best pitching prospects. He also provides several comments from Ross Atkins on players at Double-A Akron such as Tyler Holt, Carlos Moncrief, Will Roberts and others, and provides lots of insight into the development of Jesus Aguilar, Luis DeJesus, Caleb Hamrick, Sean Brady, Jorge Martinez and others.

Launching off with the Aeros: 8/13/13 – 8/19/13
The Akron Aeros were above .500 in a week for the first time since mid-July, winning four of their seven games as they moved their record to 60-67. The winning still leaves Akron seven games out of first place and the wild card, though with a young team, the growth shown by the Aeros throughout the season is a win on its own. To read about Tyler Naquin's first week, Jesus Aguilar setting records, and everything else you need to know, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

Aguilar ties record, leads Aeros to latest win
Over the years at the minor league level, lots of players come and go, and many fade from memory over time. After Saturday night, one thing is for certain. Jesus Aguilar will never be forgotten by Akron Aeros fans.
Aguilar, Akron's gregarious, 6-foot-3, power-hitting first baseman, added another chapter to his MVP-worthy season when he laced a two-run double in the eighth inning that gave the Aeros the lead and paved the way for a 5-3 victory over the Reading Fightin Phils at Canal Park.

Aguilar Sends Homer and Losing Streak Out of the Park
It turns out that a change of scenery back to the friendly confines of Canal Park was exactly what the Aeros needed to snap their troublesome, six-game losing streak. Jesus Aguilar’s towering, tape-measure, three-run home run to left field in the bottom of the eighth inning rescued the Aeros from a 2-0 deficit, and led to a thrilling, 3-2 win over the Reading Fightin Phils before a crowd of 8,688, at Canal Park.

Minor Happenings: Smith is improving, but swing needs work
In today’s week ending edition of Minor Happenings, Tony takes a look at High-A Carolina outfield prospect Jordan Smith who continues to make incremental progress and has the skills but has a few things he is still working on before he is taken more seriously as a prospect. In addition to that he provides some comments from Ross Atkins on how the organization prioritizes prospects for trades as well as comments on several players at Carolina and Lake County, plus he provides insight into the development of Paolo Espino, Kyle Crockett, Ryan Merritt, Luis Lugo and others.
