Minor Happenings: De La Cruz, Rondon Off To Hot Starts
"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.
The Indians season is already over a week old, and...

Infielder Jared Goedert was placed on the Double-A Akron disabled list today with a right oblique strain and Akron received C Armando Camacaro from Triple-A Columbus.
Goedert started at third base in each of Akron's first five games before departing midway through Monday night's contest against Altoona. The native of Concordia, KS was hitting just .154 (2-13) on the year but had drawn six walks...

Huff Leads Clippers To Win
The Columbus Clippers beat the Indianapolis Indians on Wednesday afternoon 4-1. The story of the game was some timely hitting by the Clippers combined with a solid starting effort by lefty David Huff and an oustanding job by the bullpen to close the door.
Huff got the win and is now 2-0 on the season in his first two starts, but unlike his first start where...

Triple-A Columbus catcher Chris Gimenez was removed last night in the middle of the fourth inning after he was hit in the head with a bat. It happened in the moment of the game as Indianapolis' Robinson Diaz swung at a pitch but his back swing clipped Gimenez in the head pretty good. The collision of the bat to Gimenez's catchers helmet was enough to leave him bloodied and require a few stitches. He...

The Cleveland Indians today recalled LHP Aaron Laffey from AAA Columbus. He will start today, April 15 vs. the Kansas City Royals in KC. To allow room on the 25-man roster the Indians optioned INF Josh Barfield to AAA Columbus.
Aaron made his first start of the 2009 minor league season on Sat., April 11 in Louisville for AAA Columbus, a 5-1 win for the Bats (3.1IP, 6H, 5R/ER, 2BB, 1K, 60P)....

Indianapolis Sinks Clippers 13-6
Hide the women and children as it was not a pretty night last night for the Clippers as Columbus pitching allowed 13 runs (12 earned), 17 hits, 3 walks and 1 home run in what was a 13-6 loss. Starter Jack Cassel was feasted on by Indianapolis to the tune of 7 runs, 9 hits, 2 walks, and just 1 strikeout in 3.1 innings. Things did not get any better for lefty...

he Indians today activated right-hander Carlton Smith who was on the 7-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. He fills the hole in the bullpen with the departure of lefty Ryan Edell to Triple-A Columbus a few days ago. He was 12-6 with a 4.37 ERA at advanced Single-A Kinston last year and will pitch out of the bullpen in Akron. The roster is now full

It is a marriage made in heaven.
A marriage that saw the Cleveland Indians and Columbus Clippers come together last September to hammer out a deal to move the Indians Triple-A operation out of Buffalo, NY into the Indians home state, and state capital to boot. Football may be king in Cleveland and Columbus, but now they also share another common bond: Indians fever.
The 2009 season...

As for the game itself, Columbus won 3-2. They trailed 2-0 going into the 8th inning,...

Akron had a scheduled day off on Easter Sunday.
Columbus Drops 3rd Straight
Columbus lost 5-1 to Louisville on Sunday, their third straight defeat. The Clippers had many chances to put up runs in the game, but never could get the big hit needed to breakthrough on the scoreboard. They had the bases loaded three times, twice with less than two outs, and failed to score.
Right-hander...

Indians top outfield prospect Matt LaPorta had to be removed from the second game of the Triple-A Columbus Clippers games last night because of tightness in his right mid-section. According to the Indians, LaPorta is okay and was removed for precautionary reasons because of the cold temperatures. He is not expected to be out long, if at all, and is day to day.
In other news, left-hander Ryan...

Columbus Drops Doubleheader
The Columbus Clippers lost both games of their doubleheader on Saturday night, losing the first game 5-1 and the nightcap 5-4. Both games were seven innings because of the doubleheader to makeup the rainout on Friday night.

Well, we are barely three days into the start of the minor league season, and already it looks like we are going to have a couple of moves coming down the pipeline in the next 12-24 hours. The Indians earlier today placed lefty Scott Lewis on the 15-day disabled list with a left elbow strain, and purchased the contract of Vinnie Chulk from Triple-A Columbus.
Now, as a result of this move, you...
