Coaches Corner: Ruben Niebla
Akron pitching coach Ruben Niebla took a few moments before the game on Thursday to discuss a few players on his staff this year.
On Chuck Lofgren: "He is throwing the ball extremely well. It seems he has found a rhythm with his delivery right now and he is pumping in a lot of strikes. He looks very comfortable on the mound. He went through some adversity...

Indians Have High Value On House
What a camp it has been for prized left-hander T.J. House.
House may have been a 16th round draft pick out of Picayune Memorial High School (MS), but he was top three round talent that slid due to signability concerns. He eventually signed for $750,000, which is about second round money.
So far, he has been worth every penny as the 19-year old has...

When spring training opened this year, a lot of the attention was on who would end up winning the fifth starter spot in the Indians rotation. Along with Aaron Laffey, Jeremy Sowers, Zach Jackson, and Scott Lewis, one of the candidates for that rotation spot was left-hander David Huff.
Lewis eventually won the job, while Huff was shuttled...
