Around the Farm: July 28
Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday's performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player played in yesterday's game.
Chun Chen, DH-Kinston: 2-3, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 2 R
Its only been 16 games, but an .887 OPS for a 21-year old catcher in the Carolina League is pretty good. Chen has 10 RBI since the call to Kinston,...

I am back and settled in from my two week excursion to the Gulf and East Coast. Just in time too to talk tonight about any action the Indians may be in on with trades. We already saw infielder Jhonny Peralta get dealt yesterday, so we will surely discuss that deal and any...

Game Recaps 7/28: Phelps Paces Clippers
Marson and Phelps key Clippers victory
Lou Marson is known for his defense around the Indians organization, but not much for his offense. On Wednesday night, he made the naysayers think twice, as he recorded two hits and two RBI's in a Clippers, 6-4 win.
Marson's first hit came in the fourth inning as he doubled to left field, scoring Cord Phelps from second base who was hit by a...

"Minor Happenings" is a weekly column which covers the important developments and news in the Indians farm system.

Around the Farm: July 27
Jared Goedert, 3B-Columbus: 1-3, HR (17), R, RBI, 2 BB, K
First HR in a while for Goedert. After popping 10 in June, he has "just" 7 in the month of July. His OPS for the month is still over 1.000, and his overall OPS for the Clippers stands at a robust 1.049. He's becoming more patient at the plate as well; of his 21 BB for Columbus, 7 of them have come in his last 8 games.
Abner...

While the big league games are not recapped daily here at the IPI, I just wanted to give a big shout out to one of the IPI's proudest sons right-handed pitcher Josh Tomlin for an OUTSTANDING effort on Tuesday night against the reigning World Champion New York Yankees.
To go out and face the minimum through six shutout innings and ultimately going 7+ innings and allowing just one run on three...

Akron's Week That Was: 7/19 - 7/25
The Aeros took on mighty division leading Altoona earlier last week and it was just as if they had been playing last place Erie. The Aeros swept the Curve out of town and put a nice dent into their division lead. As it stands now, the club is just a game back of Bowie and five games back of Altoona after they dropped two to Reading in a four, make it three, game series. Akron fell to Reading in...

Game Recap 7/25: Brown Saves the Day
Clippers get big hit, hang on for 5-4 win
When Jordan Brown's baseball career is complete, he could become a mail carrier, as he continues to deliver in the clutch with the bases loaded. He delivered again on Sunday night against the Pawtucket Red Sox in the fifth inning with a bases-clearing double, propelling Columbus to a 5-4 victory.
Brown's three-run double highlighted a four-run...

The trade deadline is less than a week away.
For various reasons the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline has come to be known as the most relevant time of the year for Tribe fans. It’s the time when the Indians are staples at the top of the ESPN broadcasts and the talk of a lot of baseball people throughout the game. Of course, it is unfortunately because they are having to trade off soon-to-be...
