Game Recaps 5/12: Wright dominates in Lake County loss
Steven Wright (Photo: Tony Lastoria)Steven Wright has long toiled in the Indians farm system. Wright was selected in the 2nd Round of the 2006 draft by the Indians, and slowly worked his way up to triple A Columbus. Once there, Wright began the journey so many pitchers take when they just aren't good enough. The only difference is that Wright decided to change tacks. Wright gave Tom Candiotti a call,...

The Indians have assigned infielder Jared Goedert to Double-A Akron to begin a 20-day Major League rehab assignment. He is currently on the 60-day disabled list recovering from an oblique injury. Under rules of a Major League rehab assignment the Indians have 20 days to activate him from the 60-day disabled list which also makes him count on the 40-man roster again and they have to either option...

Minor Happenings: Phelps making big league case
Cord Phelps (Photo: Lianna Holub)"Minor Happenings" is a weekly column which recaps the important developments and news in the Indians farm system. While most of the information in this report is from my own research and through interviews I have conducted with organizational personnel, some information in this report is collected and summarized from the various news outlets that cover each team.

Jason Kipnis - 2B, Columbus: 2-4, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, K.

Could Vandy's Sonny Gray be the Indians
first pick? (Photo: AP)
So the NFL Draft is done, and now we are about a month away from the MLB Draft. With that in mind it is time to revisit the possible picks for this year's draft.
As we get closer to the draft a lot of players seem to be solidifying themselves. The draft is very deep this year, and the Indians should have a lot of...

Ezequiel Carrera-CF, Columbus: 3-for-4, 2 R, HR, RBI:
Carrera is really becoming one of my favorite minor league players in the system. The underrated centerfielder is now hitting .324 on...

(Photo Credit Lianna Holub)As inconsistent this team is, the entire Western Division in the Eastern League seems to be just as inconsistent. As of Tuesday morning, only Harrisburg, leaders of the division, is at .500 at 15-15. The Akron Aeros can take that as an opening to turn things around anytime soon.
Not that the Aeros are playing bad, but there are games that leave you absolutely puzzled,...

Zach McAllister: SP, Columbus: 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R/ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 1 HR, W (6-0):

Paul Cousineau and I are back on the cyberwaves tonight for some Cleveland Indians baseball talk in another edition of "Smoke Signals" from 11:00 - 11:30 p.m. EST. Tonight I rejoin Paul on the cyberwaves after a three week hiatus due to my health issues.
With an off-day for the Indians after a 3-3 west coast trip, tonight is a good time to reassess the team and look at how things stand. We...

On Monday the Indians announced that they have optioned right-handed pitcher Jeanmar Gomez to Triple-A Columbus. No immediate move was made to replace him on the active 25-man roster. The Indians will need a starter by Saturday to plug in the rotation and that will likely be right-hander Carlos Carrasco who should be ready to come off the disabled list then. In the meantime, it is possible the Indians...

The K-Tribe Chronicle: Bullpen Brilliance
(Photo: Kinston Indians)From the Reservation:
The Kinston Indians did something this week with regularity that they have failed to do all season long, and that's win games regularly. Prior to this week, the Kinston offense wielded paper bats, and the starting pitching was erratic, to say the least. The only consistent part of this team was the bullpen.
Over the past week, the K-Tribe...
