Around the Farm: August 6, 2014
No matter how many times it is said, patience is really the name of the game when it comes to prospects. Even when it comes to a second round pick like Mitch Brown, jumping ship after fewer than two full professional seasons makes no sense. Brown may not be a finished product, but most prospects are not; otherwise they would be in the major leagues. Prospects in Brown's position are looking for growth and he has definitely shown that this year. Join Jim Piascik as he recaps Brown's dominant outing, LeVon Washington's offensive outburst, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Around The Farm: July 24, 2014
Corey Kluber's dominant outing at the major league level may be (rightfully) getting most of the attention today, but the organization's starter one level down also made some noise Thursday.

Join Jim Piascik as he recaps Murata's big night, takes a look at Carlos Moncrief's plate discipline this season, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.
