Around the Farm: July 2, 2014
It is really hard to be patient for any stretch of time. Like waiting for Christmas as a child -- or even now for Jim Piascik, the wait for the final Hobbit movie -- is unbearable (same for the waits leading up to the first two, for that matter). But it is absolutely vital to be patient to a fault with prospects, especially ones with the talent of Mitch Brown and Carlos Moncrief. Join Jim as he breaks down Brown's turnaround, the recent resurgence of Moncrief, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Around the Farm: June 26, 2014
It is easy to get caught up in recent events and become prisoners of the moment. Really, it just seems like human nature to overvalue the most recent thing to happen. Each year, it happens to a certain number of players: those with hot Aprils seem to have figured something out and those with cold ones seem to have taken a step back. By and large, however, these early season performances go back to normal, which is exactly what is happening with Ronny Rodriguez. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks down Rodriguez's season, Bobby Bradley's debut to date, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Seven Down: Indians prospects who have hurt their stock
Earlier this week we posted the seven Indians prospects who have improved their stock the most, but just like there are two sides to every coin and a yin to a yang, that means there have been some prospects who have hurt their prospect value this season. The IBI's Tony Lastoria looks at those seven players who have struggled and uses insight and information gained from Indians personnel, scouts and his own observations to explain their struggles and what they need to do to get back on track.

Around the Farm: June 25, 2014
One bounce of the ball can be all it takes to change everything. Top prospect Francisco Lindor experienced this firsthand Wednesday as a routine double play grounder took a bad hop, bouncing up and hitting him in the face. Lindor seems to have avoided being struck in the eye, a potentially positive development, though he is still getting checked out. Join Jim Piascik as takes you Around the Farm, reporting from Canal Park and bringing you the rest of the action on a busy night in the system.

As we are at the unofficial halfway point of the minor league season with the Single-A second half underway, short season ball having started and the Double-A and Triple-A All Star games looming, now is a good time to focus in on the Indians prospects who have really improved their stock to the industry not just with their performance but more importantly their development this season. The IBI's Tony Lastoria has talked to lots of Indians personnel and scouts from other teams and in those conversations came up with seven players who have really jumped up in value this season.

Akron RubberDucks top Erie SeaWolves after lengthy delay
As the RubberDucks emerged from their clubhouse at nearly 6:30 p.m., ready to take on the SeaWolves in the first game of a three-game set at Canal Park, the green-splattered radar foreshadowed a long evening ahead. Nearly six hours later, that forecast was correct, as Akron reliever Shawn Armstrong tossed the final pitch at 12:15 a.m. Tuesday to secure a 7-1 victory for the home team.
