Diamonds in the Rough '14: Claudio Bautista
This weekly feature piece here at the IBI specifically looks at some of the prospects that have maybe not had as much attention they deserve for a variety of reasons but who are interesting or are coming onto the scene. This week the IBI's Tony Lastoria decided to talk about Claudio Bautista, a position player who has had a strong season at Low-A Lake County but someone that a lot of people may not know much about. What kind of prospect is he? How is his bat and defense? What kind of future does he have? Tony provides all the details...

On-Deck With the Captains: 8/22/14-8/27/2014
The Lake County Captains are going to the playoffs. It was a rough first half for the team, so rough that any thought of a playoff bid seemed long gone. Instead, the team bore down and crafted a successful second half, clinching a playoff spot on Aug. 27. The pitching has stepped up and the bats have produced, an obvious recipe for success. Now, the Captains will close the season out at home before they seek a Midwest League championship.

Everything is coming together for Rodriguez this season
The Low-A Lake County Captains are on the verge of making the playoffs. The Captains roster has been in flux all season and features a good mix of legit high upside prospects along with some solid veteran role player types, but one player who has been there all season and might be the team MVP is first baseman Nellie Rodriguez. The IBI's Tony Lastoria talked with him earlier this season on the adjustments he has made over the past year-plus in the system.

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.

On-Deck with the Captains: Hendrix, Paulino heat up

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.
