Second Thoughts Game #93: White Sox 6, Indians 2
In Zach McAllister's first start in the major leagues since his disastrous May 21st outing against Detroit, the Cleveland Indians found themselves on the losing end of a 6-2 loss that, because of a 9th inning rally by Chicago, was closer than the final score would indicate. The IBI's John Grimm breaks down McAllister's performance within the context of his 2014 season and provides a cursory overview of the Cleveland Indians' 2014 BABIP numbers to date.

Join Arthur Kinney as he outlines Frazier's recent tear and recaps the rest of the action from the minor leagues, taking you Around the Farm.

Mejia is developing into a special defender behind the plate
Very few players come along in the minor leagues who are viewed as special in one particular skill. Lots of players are above average or considered “plus” with a certain skill, but few have what is considered an elite bat or elite arm. The Indians happen to have a couple of players in their system with elite skills or intangibles, but one player who has really come onto the scene and really stands out is catcher Francisco Mejia.
