Don't give up on Jimenez yet
Another start. Another underwhelming performance. And thus another sad chapter in the story of Ubaldo Jimenez as a Cleveland Indian. Last night Jimenez faced the Kansas City Royals in his fourth start of the 2012 campaign and once again there was not much to like. But Steve Orbanek thinks it is still too soon to give up on Jimenez and that he may still come around.

Around the Farm: April 25, 2012
If Chen won a game in the 11th inning and Urshela had a four-hit performance, who passed them to take the top spot in ATF?

Check out IPI's Around the Farm for these, and other minor league performances from yesterday's games.

The Clippers lost their fourth straight game as they dropped a 6-2 afternoon contest to the Toledo Mud Hens.

The Clippers would come right back and tie it at 1-1 when Matt LaPorta drove in Lonnie Chisenhall with an RBI single to left field. Columbus would take the lead in the bottom half of the third. Carrera, Cord Phelps, and Chisenhall all singled to load the bases with one out.

Chen delivers extra inning win for Aeros, 5-4
The Akron Aeros defeated the Bowie Baysox, 5-4, in an eleven-inning match sealing a three-series victory Wednesday at Prince George Stadium.

Chen went 3-for-6 with two RBI’s on the night and is now batting .323. Akron started off strong in the second inning putting two runs on the board.

Tice, Mucdats hammer the Hillcats, 5-2
The Carolina Mudcats (8-9) looked to get their pitching back on track following a 14-8 blow out on Tuesday night as they took on the Lynchburg Hillcats (10-6) for the third game of a four game series. The Mudcats behind Jeremie Tice’s two home runs and four RBI’s were able to beat the Hillcats 5-2. “I’m glad for Tice as he had a great spring training," Mudcats manager Edwin Rodriguez said. "He was struggling a little bit at the beginning of the season and now he’s getting his swing back and he’s the big power guy in the middle of the lineup.”

Garcia's homer powers Captains to 6-3 win
The Lake County Captains celebrated a 6-3 victory on Wednesday night as center fielder Luigi Rodriguez went 3-for-4 in the team’s return home for a three-game series against the Peoria Chiefs. Right-hander Cody Anderson (1-0, 3.00 ERA) took the bump for the Captains for his third start of the season as lefty Gerardo Concepcion (0-0, 0.00 ERA) made his season debut for Peoria. Concepcion was signed by the Chicago Cubs in March 2011, inking a five-year, $3 million deal with a $3 million signing bonus.

Fishing For Mudcats: "We'll split up the week, okay?..."
The Mudcats returned home from a weak road trip and began slugging the ball. While their starters began to resemble the great pitching of 2010 and 2011, the bullpen more resembled a horror movie than a bullpen mafia. What could have been a break-out week, turned into a wash. Jim Pete returns with Fishing For Mudcats, the Carolina Mudcats notebook...

Placing the Replacements
They may not attract the type of media buzz that other higher-profile players garner, but the trio of Jason Donald, Jose Lopez and Aaron Cunningham are the exact type of role players that Cleveland fans admire as the blue collar members of the team. With a left-handed dominant starting lineup these players will be more important as the season moves along, and Adam talks about the trio in his latest.

McFarland, Neal lead Aeros to 5-1 win
T.J. McFarland had another strong outing and right fielder Thomas Neal had three hits to lead the Akron Aeros to a 5-1 win over the Bowie Baysox on Tuesday. The Aeros lineup gave McFarland an early lead, scoring two runs in the first inning off Bowie starter Cole McCurry, who lost his second game to Akron in less than a week. After recording two quick outs to start the game, McCurry gave up an opposite field home run to third baseman Jared Goedert. The home run was Goedert’s second of the season.
