Yes, that’s right, the first half of the Midwest League season has reached the halfway point. The Captains lead the Eastern Division with a 27-11 record, tied with the big league Tampa Bay Rays for the best record in all of professional baseball.
Just for a little clarification, the Midwest League divides its season into two halves of 70 games each. The Captains played their 38th game on...

Indians Officially Call Up Donald
As mentioned last night on my Twitter page, the Indians have called up Triple-A Columbus infielder Jason Donald. The move was made official this morning when they placed infielder Asdrubal Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left forearm.
Cabrera was injured in the 1st inning of last night’s 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays in Tropicana Field. So far this year, Cabrera was...

Clip & Dirty: 5/17
Carlos Santana (2/2, 2HR, 2BB, 5RBI) continued to lay waste to the International League. The Clippers themselves haven’t been too much worse as they went into last night tied for the best record in the IL with Durham and broke that tie following their 5-1 win over the Bulls. Standing at 24-15 they have a 3 game lead in the IL West.
Team Hitting: 5R, 6H, 2XBH, 5BB
There comes a time...

Chisenhall Hurting, But Expected Back Soon
For those following the Double-A Akron team, one thing that has been noticeable the last couple weeks is how many games third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall has missed, and when he has played how he has only been in the lineup as the designated hitter.
Chisenhall has not played since Wednesday May 12th, and the last six games he has played have all been as the designated hitter as the last game...

The Indians today traded right-handed reliever Saul Rivera to Arizona for cash considerations.

Akron's Week That Was: 5/10 - 5/16
It was a wet week for the Aeros as they saw two games get washed out due to rain. It forced the club to play two doubleheaders, one against Reading and one against Erie. The Aeros managed to split against Erie, but they dropped the doubleheader to Reading as a part of their series loss. There is some excitement though in Akron as Kelvin De La Cruz made his debut and he did not disappoint.

Infirmary Report & Goodbye To Lewis
Okay, it's been an interesting last few days for me to say the least. Since returning from Myrtle Beach I have been basically bedridden with some kind of ridiculously powerful flu-cold concoction. With that I was unable to make it to Akron on Saturday night to see them, and also the second part of Minor Happenings is not complete.
What I did want to post from that second part of Minor Happenings...

Up until this week, the Kinston Indians had been performing their best version of the infamous Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck cartoon, "Duck Season/Rabbit Season." In this version of the Looney Tunes production, the Indians were busy shouting "Bullpen/Starters/Offense" from week-to-week, never quite figuring out how to put it all together. This week, the baby Indians found a way to get Bugs and Daffy to work...

Things Starting To Click For Greenwell
If a baseball player were to sit down in the offseason and diagram exactly how he would like to start his next season, that player would draw up the hot start Low-A Lake County outfielder Bo Greenwell got off to this season.
Greenwell had an amazing month of April where in 21 games he hit a blistering .405 (32-for-79) with 22 runs scored, 7 doubles, 2 triples, 3 home runs, 23 RBI, 7 stolen...
