Indians Prospect Insider

An update on Chris Archer....he is not hurt and will make his next scheduled start which I think is on Wednesday. The move to put him on the disabled list was more a paper move and another move should be coming for Lake County soon once Archer's turn in the rotation comes up again. No word on why the move was made to get an extra pitcher (John Gaub) up to Lake County, but it should be cleared up soon.

One note.....Lake County put RHP Chris Archer on the disabled list (injury unknown at this time) and LHP John Gaub was activated from extended spring training.
Whitney’s Walk-off Boosts Aeros
AKRON, OH – Matt Whitney sliced a walk-off double down the right field line in the bottom of the 10th to give the Aeros a 2-1 comeback win over Harrisburg in front of 3,449 fans at Canal Park...

Archer Is Young And In Charge
The Lake County Captains pitching staff is loaded with many promising pitching prospects from the front of the rotation to the back of the bullpen. It has been the strength of the team and been the catalyst to their 15-7 fast start putting them in first place of the South Atlantic League's Northern Division.
One of the key components to that hot start has been right-handed starter Chris Archer....

Boy, Kinston, Akron and Buffalo (L 2-1) continue to scuffle while Lake County continues to roll. These guys definitely can't wait for the calendar to flip to a new month.
Real quick, some news out of Kinston. It looks like lefty Dan Cevette may be injurred again. He complained of some pain his last time out, and tonight he had nothing as he was a good 6-8 MPH off his normal fastball range of...

Some quick notes before the recaps:
- Aaron Laffey pitched only 3 innings and threw 50 pitches for Buffalo on Thursday night, which all but means he is getting the spot start in Cleveland on Monday against the Yankees.
- Outfielder Trevor Crowe is off to extended spring training for his ailing back (disc issue). He is going to be out for awhile. Unfortunate.
- The Indians re-signed...

Minor Happenings:  Miller Returns To Buffalo
"Minor Happenings" covers the important developments and news in the Indians farm system. While most of the information in this report is from my own research and through interviews I have conducted with organizational personnel, some information in this report is collected and summarized from the various news outlets that cover each team.

Edell Dazzles as Aeros Avoid Sweep
ALTOONA, PA – Ryan Edell tossed eight shutout innings and the offense provided just enough support as the Aeros avoided a sweep with a 2-0 win over Altoona before 3,446 fans at Blair County Ballpark Wednesday. Akron improved to 7-11 and snapped a season-high four-game losing streak, while the Curve fell below .500 at 9-10.
Edell ran into some trouble...

Pestano Closing In On Opportunity After Injury
The Indians took a shot in the dark when they draft right-handed reliever Vinnie Pestano in the 20th round of the 2006 draft out of Cal-State Fullerton. As a college junior, Pestano was one of the top relief prospects in the country going into the 2006 Draft, but a serious elbow injury early in the season sidelined him and put his professional baseball career in jeopardy.
Pestano hurt his elbow...

Word is out that right-hander Adam Miller will be activated in Buffalo to make his first start of the season in Buffalo. It is good to see him back again. I'll post the official roster move when I get it and who is being removed from the Buffalo roster.
Also, outfielder Trevor Crowe is going to be sidelined for about another month. Apparently the rumored bulging disc in his back I mentioned...

I'm going to try and post these game recaps for the previous nights game. The local newspapers generally only cover the team when they are home, so this should give a quick overview on what happened for the away games as well as the home games.

Minor Happenings: Head's Versatility Catching On
This is a special edition of Minor Happenings, which today is just a recap of interviews I had with Jerad Head, Paolo Espino, and Carlton Smith while I was visiting the Indians advanced Class A affiliate Kinston in Woodbridge, Virginia a week ago.
Head's Versatility Catching On
Indians prospect Jerad Head is a jack-of-all-trades player where he not only can play anywhere in the infield...

Wow. I never figured that my short little "rant" in my weekly farm recap on Thursday would cause such a stir.
To recap, I wrote this on Thursday:
Francisco was understandably disappointed to not make the Indians opening day roster, and it has shown early on. He has struckout three times in...

Akron put outfielder Stephen Head on the disabled list yesterday with a broken bone in his right (non-throwing) wrist and activated infielder Brandon Pinckney from extended spring training. Head had appeared in just five games with Akron following a return from off-season shoulder surgery, but was hitting .357 with three RBI in those contests. Supposedly, Head and the doctors were actually happy...
