Around The Farm: July 4, 2013
A very happy Fourth of July to you! We at IBI hope you had a great holiday and enjoyed a little time off. There was no time off in the minor leagues Thursday, as all of Cleveland's affiliates were in action. Some did a little worse than others (like a pair of four-hit outings in Columbus and Carolina), though there were plenty of good performances, including some impressive pitching and hitting in Lake County. To read all about Thursday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Poor defense spurs Scrappers to 11-6 loss
On a day meant for celebration, the 6,576 fans that filled Eastwood Field rooting for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers had very little to celebrate, watching their hometown team fall 11-6 to the Williamsport Crosscutters. The Scrappers could only muster two hits against Williamsport starting pitcher Julio Reyes, who was making his first start of the season.

Minor Happenings: Wendle is blossoming into a star
A very Happy Fourth of July to all of the IBI readers! What better to celebrate our independence than good food, fireworks, and another edition of Minor Happenings! In today’s abbreviated version of the Happenings on the Indians farm (still over 2300 words), Tony takes a long look at the emerging star that is second baseman Joey Wendle and just how good of a prospect he really is for the Indians. He also provides tons of comments from Ross Atkins on Clint Frazier, Mitch Brown, Kieran Lovegrove, Juan Herrera, and many others.

Around The Farm: July 3, 2013
Sometimes greatness can spoil people. Francisco Lindor could spend almost every night atop Around The Farm, though sometimes we can take his all-around excellence for granted. Lindor is one of the transcendent prospects in the game of baseball and is the kind of talent every team wants in its system. The shortstop was at it again Wednesday night, along with plenty of other players throughout the system. To read all about them, join Jim Piascik as he goes Around The Farm.

Scrappers split twinbill with Jammers
Following a rain-soaked Tuesday night which saw the Mahoning Valley Scrappers and Jamestown Jammers game postponed, the boys picked-up where they left-off in the second inning and the Scrappers prevailed 5-3. In the nightcap of Wednesday’s doubleheader, which was only slated for seven innings due to the late start and a travel day following for both teams, the Scrappers dropped the rubber match of the three-game series against the Jammers, losing 7-3.

Minor Happenings: Moncrief has put it all together
In this week’s first edition of Minor Happenings, Tony takes a look at the big month that outfielder Carlos Moncrief had and just what kind of prospect he is for the Indians.

The Indians got a sensational performance on the mound on Sunday from Low-A right-handed pitcher Dylan Baker, and he has really strung together some good starts of late. Tony touches on him and many other players that were in action on Sunday from Akron to Arizona.
