Around The Farm: June 12, 2013
As we near mid-June, we can begin to look back at some horrible early-season performances and what players have brought their stats up to a respectable level. Some of it will be simple regression, but sometimes there is something more, maybe a tweak to a batting stance or changing where you stand on the rubber. Two shortstops both made adjustments earlier in the season and are enjoying much better results in June. A coincidence? Maybe. But most importantly, things look good now. To find out who these players are and all you need to know about Wednesday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Captains pound TinCaps 11-0

On-Deck with the Captains: 6/5/13 - 6/11/13
It was an ugly week for the Lake County Captains as they went winless since last Wednesday. The team dropped seven games and was rained out one evening, dropping their record to a league-worst 20-41. The offense continues to be problematic for the team and the starting pitching remains a nightly question mark. With the All-Star break approaching, perhaps a few days rest will be beneficial. Join Stephanie Metzger as she recaps the week in On-Deck with the Captains.

Born maize and blue, Haase is all Ohio now
Eric Haase may be from “The State Up North”, but his dedication rests within the Buckeye State. Haase hails from Westland, Michigan, just east of Ann Arbor. Though he’s from the land of blue and maize, he had plans to move to the land of scarlet and grey his senior year of high school. That was put on hold, though, after he was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in 2011. Stephanie Metzger spoke with Haase recently about playing in Lake County, his decision to leave Michigan, and much more.

Around The Farm: June 6, 2013
On a night where all the attention is on the MLB draft and new addition to the Cleveland organization Clint Frazier, there was still plenty of action throughout the minor leagues. Not all was good -- Carlos Carrasco was scratched from his start -- but some, like Akron finishing a sweep, was. The focus from Thursday is on an IBI favorite, however, who simply catches our collective attention. To find out who he is and all you need to know from Thursday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

In game one, the Captains sent right-hander Jake Sisco to the mound to face right-hander Brandon Sinnery. In game two, Josh Martin made his first start of the year for Lake County. He was opposed by right-hander Blake Perry for South Bend.

Around The Farm: June 5, 2013
Baseball is a game of adjustments. The pitcher decides to throw a curveball after the batter hit his last fastball for a home run; a batter moves up in the box expecting an off-speed pitch; a shortstop moves toward second base because the batter has a knack for hitting the ball right back up the middle; any of these little shifts can change the outcome of a game. Sometimes players make big adjustments and it seems to lead to a breakthrough. To find out who might have made such a breakthrough and all you need to know about Wednesday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Around The Farm: May 30, 2013
Jim Piascik was at Akron's 15 inning win Thursday night and he only has one thing to report from it: it was long. Outside of a relatively boring game in Akron, the Mudcats made a late charge at a victory, some Lake County players showed some power, and a Columbus outfielder displayed why he may be a major league option at some point in 2013. To find out all you need to know about Thursday in the minor leagues, join Jim as he goes Around The Farm.
