Around The Farm: August 1, 2013
So often, the difference between a prospect developing into a major leaguer or busting out in the minors is health. Some players are just unlucky with their bodies and see their careers end while others manage to stay on the field and make something happen. Bryson Myles is turning heads now that he is healthy and he continued to do so Thursday night. To read about Myles and everything else you need to know about the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

The AZL Indians opened the second half of the AZL season Friday night by snapping their three game losing streak, as they rallied past their complex rival AZL Reds 5-3 in 10 innings. After coming back to tie the game in the late innings, the Tribe got a boost they desperately needed from LeVon Washington, who smacked a two-run blast in the top of the 10th inning and continued his red-hot offensive stretch.

The AZL Indians dropped a second straight game Tuesday night, falling 7-2 to the AZL Cubs at Hohokam Park.
