Tonight on Smoke Signals, Paul teams up with guest host Adam Burke who is filling in for me while I am in transit to Arizona. Adam will be doing an Indians show on Sunday night's this year, so be on the lookout for that. Anyway, tonight they will be previewing the Indians outfield and Michael Brantley's agent Josh Kusnick will be calling in at the end of the show. I also expect to call in sometime...

Holbert Excited For Second Voyage
Lake County Captains fans will notice a very familiar face on the steps of the first base dugout this year.

As those of you know who have read the Top 100 listing here on the site or read my book, there are a few people who I trust with their observations and opinions and they are invaluable in assisting me with coming up with a "fair" ranking for the Indians prospects. Two of those individuals, Art and Norman, are older gentlemen who have been following baseball much longer than I have and happen to be...

This morning the Indians optioned LHP Jeremy Sowers and C Wyatt Toregas to Triple-A Columbus and reassigned RHP Greg Aquino, INF Michael Aubrey, OF Michael Brantley, OF Matt LaPorta, and RHP Kirk Saarloos to minor league camp. Currently there are 37 players in Major League camp.
Also, with Sowers being optioned out, it is a two-dog race for the 5th starter spot now between Scott Lewis and Aaron...

2009 Indians Top 100 Prospect Wrapup
As a wrapup to the Indians Top 100 Prospect list, here are some answers to some popular questions from the listing. While I left the scouting reports more to fact and insight from scouts, players, and coaches, I left out my personal thoughts on each player for obvious reasons.
How strong is the system?
Compared to the other 29 clubs in baseball, the Indians farm system is now a Top...

Here are the box scores from the minor league spring games on Monday March 23rd against the Milwaukee Brewers affiliates. Again, as a note, "FPS" under the pitching stats stands for "first pitch strikes". Also, some stats are missing like the runs scored in the Columbus game and the velocities in the Mahoning game....these were not entered during the game.

Here are the box scores from the minor league spring games on Saturday March 21st against the Chicago White Sox affiliates. It was feast or famine as Akron scored 19 runs on 21 hits including 7 home runs. On the flip side, Kinston managed just one hit in their entire game.

Not much to report at the moment with releases, but apparently on Thursday the Indians made some cuts. One of those players was supposedly Todd Martin. Hopefully I can find out who some of the other guys may have been soon.
Also, I haven't mentioned this yet, but last week right-hander Joe Ness was released. Also, apparently catcher Brian Juhl has retired, though I am awaiting confirmation...

Today was a camp day, so the minor leaguers were broken up into six groups where three intrasquad seven-inning games were played. Columbus played Akron, Kinston played Lake County, and Mahoning Valley scrimmaged itself.
You'll notice some Indians big leaguers like Carmona, Perez, Hafner, Shoppach and others played in the Columbus/Akron game, and one item of note to come from that game is Carmona...
