Baker debuts, AZL Indians drop slugfest 17-15
It was a chaotic nine inning game of baseball last night as the AZL Indians pitching was bruised and battered for 17 runs off 21 hits to accommodate 5 errors in the field in a 17-15 loss to the D-Backs. The Indians 2012 5th round pick Dylan Baker started the game and looked to have some nerves on the mound in his professional debut.

2012 Indians Draft: Signing deadline day
Today is the MLB Draft signing deadline (5:00pm ET). The Indians have now signed all of their top ten round picks and have 25 of their 40 picks in the fold. It is sort of an anticlimactic day since all of the big signings have been made and there is very little the Indians can do to add much, but they still have the means to add another player or two or three today. Tony chimes in with his last signing update of the year, and a non-premium piece to boot.

Bats, gloves flummoxed in 10-1 blowout

Around The Farm: July 12, 2012
It wasn't a great night for the Indians minor league affiliates, as every single team experienced a loss on Thursday. Despite the carnage in the standings, there were plenty of great performances up and down the system last night. There was Jordan Smith showing off some power and T.J. House bouncing back in Akron. But the top spot goes to someone who hasn't been seen by many, but will become a household name before too much longer. Find out who he is (and start learning his name) inside.

Akron (52-39) mustered only three hits off of Altoona’s pitching staff, which went 11 scoreless innings and kept the Curve in a position to gut one out the entire night.

Around the Farm: July 11, 2012

The guy at the top of ATF isn't unfamiliar with his perch, but it's been awhile. He'll introduce himself...after the jump...

Have a heart for Hagadone
Indians left-handed reliever Nick Hagadone suffered a self inflicted hand injury last Friday, and may be lost for the season. The Indians were not happy about it as they placed him on the minor league disqualified list which keeps him from getting paid, and now the Players Union may step in and file a grievance. With everything that is going on, Adam McGavin chimes in and says that while Hagadone has opened himself up to being labeled a hothead, trying hard is easier to forgive.
