The WAR Room: Merritt continues to dominate in Carolina
The WAR Room is back again, bringing you the 2014 advanced stats for every Cleveland minor leaguer. After looking at the hitters last week, today we focus on the pitchers. It is still early enough that there is some noise in the numbers, but at this point in the season, we are starting to see some interesting trends emerge. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down, including Carolina left-hander Ryan Merritt continuing to dominate at the High-A level, Lake County left-hander Luis Lugo's slightly hidden greatness, and much more.

Second Thoughts Game #69: Cleveland 3, Boston 2
After a two-year drought, Cleveland secured a season series victory over Boston with a 3-2 victory over the Red Sox on Friday. Stemming from this narrow victory in which an RBI walk functioned as the winning run, the IBI's John Grimm breaks down the personnel dissonance, is unable to reap the rewards of his perfectly serviceable pitching style.

Morimando shines, but Mudcat bats struggle in 5-1 loss
A brilliant performance from starter Shawn Morimando wasn't enough as the Carolina Mudcats fell 5-1 to the Wilmington Blue Rocks on Saturday night. After taking a 1-0 lead in the top of the sixth, the Mudcats bullpen allowed six consecutive Blue Rock scores, which, ultimately, proved to be too much to overcome.

Captains pitching tames Dragons, 5-1
The Lake County Captains (27-42) tamed the Dayton Dragons (35-32) with a 5-1 victory behind a solid pitching performance. Lefty Luis Lugo (4-4,4.56) countered Dayton right-hander Sal Romano (4-5, 3.42) for the start. Lugo, who had a rough start to his season, was coming off a trio of impressive previous starts. That remained the case on Saturday.

Holt's adjustment to Columbus not taking long at all
When a player moves up the minor league ladder, it’s safe to assume that it might take them some time to acclimatize to each level. That isn’t the case with Columbus Clippers outfielder Tyler Holt. Ever since making his Triple-A debut on May 26, Holt has been a revelation. Grant Miller recently spoke with Holt about his transition and his goals for the rest of the season.

Second Thoughts Game #68: Cleveland 3, Boston 10
Cleveland fell to Boston 10-3 on Friday, in an affair that saw a fairly equal display of batters but was decided by the pitchers. While Boston right-hander John Lackey threw five strikeouts to one walk, Cleveland starter Justin Masterson lasted only two innings, walking four and striking out none. The IBI's John Grimm breaks down a possible source of Masterson's control problems on Friday and discusses the solid and altogether bizarre performance of Asdrubal Cabrera.

The Mahoning Valley Scrappers did not leave their offense in Arizona when they ended extended spring training.

Around the Farm: June 12, 2014
Nights like Clint Frazier had on Thursday have not come as frequently as we would like for the center fielder so far in 2014, but while Frazier is struggling a bit this year, putting up big stats this season is not the real goal. It is more important right now for Frazier to learn about the grind that is the minor league season, just like another top prospect a few years ago with. Join Jim Piascik as he explains Frazier's situation in more detail, breaks down Carlos Moncrief's recent surge, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.
