Launching Off With The Aeros: 7/24/12 - 7/30/12
Your Akron Aeros had a very successful homestand over the past week, taking four of six and improving to 65-43 on the season. The Aeros did it with names you may very well know from brief callups to the Majors (Juan Diaz) or big trades (Rob Bryson), but those two did not do it alone. Like every other week, check out Launching Off With The Aeros as Jim Piascik takes you through all you need to know about the Akron Aeros.

Health and playing time help Weglarz get on track
Double-A Akron outfielder Nick Weglarz has battled the injury bug the past several seasons, and it eventually caught up to him last season and the start of this season as his offensive performance took a nosedive. But he has gotten stronger over the course of this season, remained healthy, and made a few adjustments with his swing that have resulted in much better play of late.

Matt Packer ready to resume promising career
Matt Packer burst onto the Indians' scene with a stellar 2010 season that saw him go 9-7 with a sterling 2.05 ERA in both Lake County and Akron. He followed that season by skipping the Carolina League and heading right to the Aeros. He started off slowly (3-8, 5.71 ERA at the break), but finished strong (6-4, 2.78 after the break). Now recovered from a shoulder that cost him the first half of the season, Packer is back, and more than ready...

Double-A Akron left-handed pitcher Giovanni Soto made a date with history on Sunday when he threw the second nine inning complete game no-hitter in franchise history. Even with the huge accomplishment, Soto is determined to use it as a building block for a strong finish and continue to develop as a pitcher.
