Around The Farm: May 29, 2013
Things were busy on the farm Wednesday, with all of Cleveland's affiliates in action and Lake County completing a doubleheader. Great performances rolled in from throughout the system, with major league options impressing in Columbus, top prospects shining in Akron and Carolina, and a Lake County prospect hitting his first home run of the season. The headlines, however, belonged to a dominant Carolina pitcher and a returning reliever making his first appearance of the season. To find out who these players are and find out all you need to know about Wednesday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

On-Deck with the Captains: 5/22/13 - 5/28/13
It was a painful week for the Lake County Captains as they went winless since last Wednesday. The Captains’ offensive woes continue and their starting pitching screams of inconsistency. The team’s youth has made itself clear and once the short-season Mahoning Valley Scrappers’ season starts, some of the current roster may take a trip to Niles, Ohio for some fine-tuning. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger chimes in with her weekly notebook...

Around The Farm: May 23, 2013
You know it's going to be a good night when LeVon Washington is involved. The Lake County outfielder was up to his normal tricks, showing the all-around game that makes him one of the most dynamic prospects in the entire organization. The bats were also out in force in Akron, as the Aeros scored 11 runs and routed the Baysox. One bat in particular stood out as his power and overall talent took over the game. To find out who he is and all you need to know about the night in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Vick's career is just getting started
The Low-A Lake County Captains have been a disappointment in the win-loss record to date and several of their higher profile prospects have underwhelmed to date. But one player that has had a good showing in the early going is outfielder Logan Vick, and the IBI's Kaily Cunningham recently caught up to talk about his season to date.

Around The Farm: May 22, 2013
The rains held off in the minor leagues Wednesday night, not subjecting those games to the wet quagmire the major league team had to slog through. Akron hosted Rehab Wednesday with two major league pitchers on rehab assignments, Carolina had a hard time scoring runs, and Lake County furiously tried to come back from a 9-3 deficit with a five-run ninth. The highlight of Wednesday, though, was a top prospect maybe, just maybe, beginning to break through after a season of struggle. To find out who this is and read all about the night in the minors, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

On-Deck with the Captains: 5/15/13 - 5/21/13
The Captains went 3-4 this past week but the losing record is misleading of the progress the team has made. The team’s offense has started to catch on and even the likes of Claudio Bautista and Dorssys Paulino, who have been miserable at the plate, have started to swing better bats. The IBI's Stephanie Metzger gets us all caught up on the week that was for the Captains...

The IBI's Stephanie Metzger gets us caught up with the big righty....
