International Report: Indians agree to terms on four players
The International Signing Period kicked up yesterday July 2nd, and while a lot of teams expected the signings to come at a slower pace this year that has not really been the case so far as many high profile players have already agreed to terms on deals. The Indians themselves have been very busy inking one player to a $1.1 million bonus and three others for six figures. Tony has the details...

Smith looks to keep moving up
In the past year since being drafted, rightfielder Jordan Smith has performed at a high level from the moment he first stepped on the field. After a very promising pro debut at short season Single-A Mahoning Valley last year, he is having another good season this year at Low-A Lake County and his value continues to rise.

Around the Farm: July 2, 2012
Rob Bryson was once thought of as an elite arm, and showed why last night in his most dominating performance to date. Giovanny Urshela may not be a top prospect, but his current offensive stretch may turn a few heads. At the top of ATF is a guy who may be the most important prospect in the system. Check out just who that is with our daily dose of Around the Farm, after the jump...

Mistakes prove costly for Captains in 5-4 loss
A pair of base running blunders proved to be costly for the Lake County Captains as they fell to the Fort Wayne TinCaps 5-4 on Monday. Right-hander Mason Radeke (5-1, 2.96) took the bump for the Captains for the first time against Fort Wayne’s Cody Hebner (6-3, 4.13). Radeke was formerly a starter in the Lake County bullpen this season, though he started last season for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, where he went 2-0 in nine games.

Clippers pluck Hens, 4-1
After a successful homestand, the Clippers began a four-game roadtrip Monday night, and started it off with a win.

The Carolina Mudcats (7-4) beat up on the Potomac Nationals (6-5) on Monday as they took the second game of the series 11-1. Led by first baseman Jesus Aguilar and third baseman Giovany Urshela the Mudcat offense was almost unstoppable scoring at least one run in all but one inning. Both hitters were a triple away from a cycle. Aguilar went 4-for-5 with two home runs and drove in six while Urshela added in three hits of his own with a homer and two RBI.

Sailing with the Clippers: 6/25/2012 - 7/1/2012

Chicago checks Cleveland in Youkilis deal
After falling behind the White Sox, the Indians began the toughest part of their schedule to date. With both teams matching each other blow for blow, last week Chicago beat out Cleveland to acquire Kevin Youkilis from Boston. Brian La Shier wonders if Cleveland’s hesitation in the bidding inadvertently strengthened its rival’s position.

2012 Indians Draft: 7/2 Signing update
We are now 11 days away from the July 13th signing deadline, and as expected some signings are starting to trickle in. Yesterday the Indians officially signed 15th round pick Nelson Rodriguez, a player that I noted had agreed to terms a week ago in this report. In today's update I give an update on a player flying into Arizona to sign his contract, talk about the demands of 4th round pick D'Vone McClure and how signable he is, and where the Indians may go if they are unable to sign him.

Second Thoughts: Game #78 - Indians 6, Orioles 2
No matter what the outcome of this game, the Indians were guaranteed at least a split of the long series in Baltimore. Paced by another strong outing from their ace and more early offense, they were able to win the series outright and salvage a once-disastrous road trip. The White Sox also lost, and the Indians found themselves only a game and a half out of first place. Join Kevin Dean with his Second Thoughts of Sunday's ballgame.

Around the Farm: July 1, 2012
Ryan Merritt got his second win in as many starts at Mahoning Valley. Tyler Naquin and Tyler Holt each had a 3-for-4 night playing centerfield. Both are trying to break the mold of the "Trevor Crowe-type" outfielder, and made some inroads on Sunday. The top player in tonight's ATF is the guy that took over the DH role from Jeremie Tice at Carolina. Nope, it's not Jesus Aguilar. Find out who it is, after the jump.

Mudcats capitalize on Nationals miscues
The Carolina Mudcats (6-4) took the first game of the series from the Potomac Nationals (6-4) 8-3. Francisco Jimenez gave the Mudcats a strong outing, tossing six innings, while giving up only one run on three hits. “He was good, he kept us in the game. At points he lost his concentration when he was facing the bottom of the order, but overall it was a very good outing” said manager Edwin Rodriguez
