I was in Lake County on Tuesday night and was able to talk to left-handed starters Kelvin De La Cruz and Ryan Miller as well as outfielder Adam White and pitching coach Ruben Niebla, all of which I plan to have feature pieces on in the next week or so.
In case you were wondering where first baseman Chris Nash and outfielder Matt Brown have been, they are both a little dinged up and out injured....

Gimenez Is Starting To Catch On
When you want to sit down and talk baseball, you talk to Chris Gimenez. When you want to talk about catching, he's your guy as well. In fact, if you want to talk about anything, go find him and he'd likely sit down and talk with you for hours.
That's just who Gimenez is, a conversationalist with an upbeat and engaging personality. Over the years the 6'2" 200-pound catcher has started to make...

Congrats to first baseman Michael Aubrey on his callup to Cleveland tonight. Aubrey will be in uniform with the Indians today (Saturday) and is making his big league debut. As noted in my Minor Happenings piece yesterday, I was told late last week he was on the verge of a callup and that it could happen anyday.
