Launching off with the Aeros: The 2013 season in review
On the surface, calling a 68-73 season a success -- especially when that season follows a championship campaign -- would be ludicrous. In the case of the 2013 Akron Aeros, however, it would be true. While last year brought Akron an Eastern League championship, 2013 saw the arrival of numerous top prospects and brought the future one step closer to Cleveland. If you made it out to Canal Park this year, you saw the future of Cleveland. To recap that future and everything that happened in 2013, join Jim Piascik for one last time and go Launching off with the Aeros.

Armstrong's season derailed by injury, but he's still on right track
Professional baseball bears witness to an inevitable path of highs and lows. Players fall victim to the unsympathetic elements of the game beyond their control. One of those things beyond their control are injuries, which is something that Double-A Akron right-handed Shawn Armstrong had to deal with this season. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger recently caught up with him and talked with him about how he has handled such a frustrating season.

Aguilar rescues Aeros with late clutch hit
hen the bases are loaded, Eastern League pitchers would rather see any other human being at the plate besides Akron's Jesus Aguilar.
On Friday night in Altoona, Aguilar, the league's top run producer and, by many estimates, the circuit's most feared hitter, cracked a bases-loaded single with two outs in the eighth inning to lift the Aeros to a 3-1 victory over the Curve in the opener of a four-game series at People's Natural Gas Field.

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.

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...

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.
