J-Rod Making Himself An Option
There may have been no Minor Happenings last week because of the draft coverage, but here at least was the Player of the Week for last week. Minor Happenings will return later this week.

Josh Rodriguez (Infielder - Columbus)
.647 (11-17), 9 R, 2 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 4 BB, 2 K, 1 SB, 1.832...

Game Recap 6/14: Carrasco's Strong Outing Not Enough
Tides claim victory over Clippers, 6-3
The Norfolk Tides claimed victory over the Columbus Clippers, 6-3 on Monday night at Huntington Park in front of just over 9,000 fans.
The Clippers were unable to execute the fundamentals late in the ball game, failing to move runners over on bunt attempts as well as a few fielding issues in the ninth. Columbus compiled nine hits, five of which...

Henry Promoted to Akron
The Indians made a roster move today by promoting High-A Kinston outfielder Jordan Henry to Double-A Akron. To make room on the roster infielder Adam Davis was sent to Kinston.
Henry is in his first full season in the Indians organization after being selected in the 7th round of the 2009 Draft out of the University of Mississippi. He has been a tablesetter all season in Kinston, and leaves...

Akron's Week That Was: 6/7 - 6/13
It isn't every week you can go undefeated, so when the Aeros did it a week ago, it was probably thought unlikely they would do it again this past week. The Aeros did fall a game short of completing another perfect week, but they did manage to set a franchise record 12-straight wins before falling on Sunday to Portland. The Aeros have bolted up the standings and put themselves into the thick of a...

Game Recap 6/13: Popham Mows Down The Pelicans
Kinston Beats Myrtle Beach, Takes Series
The K-Tribe banged out ten runs on 14 hits, routing Myrtle Beach 10-2 Sunday afternoon at Historic Grainger Stadium. With the win the K-Tribe takes the four game series from the Pelicans.
Kinston jumped on top with a big first inning against Pelicans starter J.J. Hoover, who was named a Carolina League All-Star earlier in the week. Karexon...

It's been an interesting week, ripe with several watches for us Cleveland fans. While Cleveland fans were wrapping themselves up in the Izzo-watch, which is wrapped around the LeBron-watch, the Carlos Santana-watch too front and center in Cleveland. Santana brought his heavy bat to Cleveland, and responded by throwing out a runner in his first inning of play, as well as hitting his first home run...

Game Recap 6/12: Aeros Win, Break Record
Aeros Break Record In 12-5 Win
The Aeros set a new franchise record with their 12th straight victory as the offense exploded in a 12-5 win over the Portland Sea Dogs Saturday night at Canal Park. A crowd of 2,867 witnessed the home team blast out of the gates for four runs in each of the first two innings en route to the historic win. The previous record of 11 wins in a row was set in June...

Editor’s note: This is another reminder that there will be no Minor Happenings this week due to the heavy amount of draft coverage this week. It will be back next week.
The Indians had a very good draft this past week as they took a lot of good, young talent with upside.
But all those pats on the back about their very good draft will mean nothing if they don’t sign some of these...

Game Recap 6/11: LaPorta Keeps Mashing
Clippers fall in series finale, 7-6
On the same day when the hype around Columbus was the call up of Carlos Santana to Cleveland, the Clippers made their fair share of noise at Huntington Park, but fell to the Rochester Red Wings, 7-6. Both teams used the long ball to their advantage, each hitting three home runs in the game.
After a 27 minute rain delay, Yancarlos Ortiz began his...

Carlos Santana Called Up To Cleveland
The Cleveland Indians today announced they have recalled catcher Carlos Santana from the AAA Columbus Clippers. To allow room on the 25-man roster for Santana, the Indians optioned catcher Lou Marson to AAA Columbus.
Santana, 24, has spent the entire 2010 season to date at AAA Columbus where he has hit .316 (62-196) with 39 runs scored, 14 doubles, a triple, 13HR and 51 RBI in 57 games. He...

Game Recap 6/10: Aeros Win Steak Continues
Aeros Hold On Late, Win 10th Straight 4-3
The streaking Aeros won yet again Thursday at Canal Park, overcoming a furious late-inning comeback by the New Hampshire Fisher Cats to win for the 10th consecutive game. Akron lefty starter Eric Berger continued his solid pitching of late in front of the 3,133 fans in attendance and even had a no-hitter through 6.1 innings. The Aeros (30-30) moved...

Phelps To Columbus, Kipnis To Akron
In the wake of all the draft stuff going on, the Indians made a very noteworthy roster move in their minor league system in the past 24 hours. I actually noted these moves as soon as they happened on my Twitter page (@tlastoria), but had not listed them on the site until now.
Anyway, the Indians have promoted second baseman Cord Phelps to Triple-A Columbus and to fill his spot in Akron they...
