In the midst of a playoff race, the Carolina Mudcats are making a furious late season push to be a representative from the Carolina League’s Southern Division. The team won six of seven games this week and closed the week with five wins in a row to find themselves just 1.5 games back in the Southern Division with one week left in the regular season. The IBI's Zachary Francis recaps the week that was for the Mudcats and also sat down and talked with recent trade acquisition Michael Clevinger...

Brown leads Mudcats past Dash, 7-4
A late rally from the home team was not enough as the Carolina Mudcats rode an early lead to a 7-4 victory over the Winston-Salem Dash on Saturday night. Carolina starter D.J. Brown (3-7, 4.36) produced a strong outing in which he allowed just two earned runs off of seven hits over 5.1 innings.

Consistency is the name of Merritt's game
After going 6-9 in Lake County during 2013, few people, if any, saw a potential ace in Carolina Mudcats left-hander Ryan Merritt before the season began. That perception has certainly changed now. A 16th round draft pick in 2011, Merritt is having one of the best seasons in Mudcats franchise history, including before they were affiliated with the Indians. The IBI's Zachary Francis recently sat down and spoke with the talented lefty about his season...

Mudcats rally to beat Dash, 8-7
Despite losing an early lead, Eric Haase’s RBI single in the top of the ninth pushed the Carolina Mudcats ahead for an 8-7 victory over the Winston-Salem Dash Friday. Carolina was in control early, with the Mudcats bats jumping all over Dash starter J.B. Wendelken in the top of the first. Yhoxian Medina opened the contest with a base hit up the middle before Yandy Diaz quickly put the Mudcats ahead with a two-run shot to right. Later in the inning, Torsten Boss doubled the advantage, unleashing a homer of his own to right plating Alex Monsalve as the Mudcats grabbed the 4-0 lead.

Minor Happenings: Brown's re-emergence has been stellar
In this week’s Minor Happenings, the IBI's Tony Lastoria takes a look at the strong rebound right-handed pitcher Mitch Brown has made this season and just how impressive he has been since early May. He also spends a lot of time looking at the Happenings in Arizona with a deep look into the spectacular showing Bobby Bradley has had and why it is so special on so many levels, he provides a ton of comments from Ross Atkins on the players in Arizona such as Bradley, Yu-Cheng Chang, Alexis Pantoja, Justus Sheffield, Grant Hockin, Jared Robinson and others, and more.

Around the Farm: August 21, 2014
Clint Frazier and Carlos Moncrief highlighted the night for the organization on Thursday, but the pair are pretty different when it comes to their developmental status. As a young outfielder in Low-A, Frazier's performance on-the-field matters less than Moncrief's, who is an older player in Triple-A. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks down what that means in addition to recapping the rest of the action from throughout the minor leagues as he takes you Around the Farm.

Carolina Mudcats lose to Frederick Keys, 5-0
Dominating pitching helped the Frederick Keys protect an early lead Thursday as they defeated the Carolina Mudcats 5-0 to avoid the series sweep. Brenden Webb gave Fredrick the early advantage in the top of the second, crushing a solo homerun to right off Carolina starter Adam Plutko as the Keys went up 1-0.

Around the Farm: August 20, 2014
Now. We always want things now. Better sooner than later. Yet, when it comes to prospects, it is often about the long game. D'vone McClure's stock has fallen after two subpar seasons in Arizona, yet the outfielder is still only 20 years old. Dace Kime may be a bit older than McClure, but the 22-year-old is only in his first full professional season. These players are not supposed to be finished products, and looking between the lines, there are positive signs for both. Join Jim Piascik as he recaps McClure and Kime's performances and the rest of the action from throughout the organization as he takes you Around the Farm.
