Around the Farm: June 30, 2013
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.

The AZL Indians treated all who attended their game Friday night in Surprise, Arizona to nine innings of relatively boring baseball. It might have been the 110° desert heat, or possibly that they didn’t have enough gas left in the tank after their 12-11 victory over the AZL Padres on Thursday, but whatever it was, the Indians could not muster up any offense in a 6-1 loss to the Rangers.

In the midst of a three game slide, the AZL Indians looked to get back in the win column Thursday night against the visiting AZL Padres. The game featured a little bit of everything including home runs, bloopers, wild pitches, and sloppy errors, but the AZL Indians were able to prevail in a wild affair.

A few pitching hiccups at the beginning and end of the AZL Indians’ game proved to be costly, as the Indians fell to the Brewers 9-8 in extra innings Wednesday night at Goodyear Ballpark, and extended the Indians’ losing streak to three games.

After a solid opening weekend, the AZL Indians kicked off their second week of play Tuesday against the AZL Brewers.

Big ninth inning comeback caps off AZL Indians 4-3 win
Up and down throughout the entire Cleveland Indians organization on Saturday night, teams exhibited a certain flair for the dramatics, as four teams each won their respective games by one run. In the scorching 106° desert heat, the AZL Indians turned in, possibly, the most entertaining performance of the night, as they rode strong pitching and clutch hitting to a walk-off win over the AZL Dodgers 4-3.

With revenge on their minds, the AZL Dodgers rode clutch hitting and strong relief pitching to a 4-1 victory over the AZL Indians Sunday night at Camelback Ranch. A relatively slow start hitting-wise for both teams, the Dodgers overcame a few defensive and pitching miscues in the early stages of the game, and managed to shut the Tribe down when it mattered most.

Over two months into the major league baseball season, the AZL Indians, the Cleveland Indians rookie league affiliate, kicked off their Arizona League season Thursday against their complex rival, the AZL Reds. Early season jitters and rust were apparent for the Indians throughout the game, starting in the top of the first inning, as the team ultimately lost 9-4. .

Around The Farm: June 20, 2013
With both the Columbus and Akron offenses hitting the skids, Around The Farm needed some extra help to remain interesting Thursday night. Luckily the start of the Arizona League, the return of Lake County from the All-Star break, and offensive fireworks for Mahoning Valley provided some fodder for us. The night was highlighted by a Lake County catcher showing off his power in a big way. To find out who it is and all you need to know about the night in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

McAdams brings the power with his bat and arm
Cleveland Indians outfield prospect Josh McAdams has been in the organization for close to a year now. Around this time last year he was selected in the 7th round of the draft straight out of Calhoun High School in Georgia, and has enjoyed the ride since signing with the Indians. He brings a ton of power potential with his bat and arm, and Tony recently had a chance to sit down and talk with the talented youngster.

McClure continues the process of molding his potential
The Cleveland Indians have placed a stronger focus in recent years to draft more athletes that can play in the middle of the diamond. One such example of this is the selection of outfielder D’Vone McClure in the 4th round of last year’s draft. At 19-years of age and 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, he has the body, size, and athleticism that make scouts drool over his potential. McClure is in the process of molding all of that potential and Tony recently caught up with him in Arizona.
