Merritt shuts down Dragons, leads Captains to 7-3 win
The Lake County Captains won their second-straight game on Wednesday night as they took advantage of a handful of wild pitches and some timely hits to tame the Dayton Dragons for a 7-3 win. It was a southpaw showdown as lefty Ryan Merritt (0-2, 2.00) received the nod to start for the Captains against Dayton lefty Ismael Guillon (0-1, 4.91). Guillon is currently on the Cincinnati Reds’ 40-man roster and is ranked the 9th best Reds prospect by Baseball America.

Martinez falters as Bats beat Clippers 8-3
After last night’s rain out at Huntington Park, the Clippers took the field for a foggy, early morning affair against the Louisville Bats. Clearly, Joe Martinez and the rest of the Clippers were in a haze of their own, losing 8-3. Clippers’ starter Joe Martinez started out strong with a pretty easy first inning, but that was where the success stopped for the righty.

Waving goodbye to Ubaldo Jimenez at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario?
The hope for Ubaldo Jimenez to have a solid season has left the Corner of Carnegie after the enigmatic righty walked five, threw 59 pitches and gave up seven runs in 1 2/3 innings on Tuesday night. What will the Indians do now that their spring training project has regressed to perhaps his worst start since joining Cleveland? Is it time to cut their ties and move on, or can Jimenez give the Indians any value going forward?

Around the Farm: April 16, 2013
Today, Jerrud Sabourin was named the Cleveland Indians' minor league player of the week. You have to wonder what meant more to the Muddies' first baseman, that award, or his daily appearances here at ATF. Sabourin wasn't in the marquee tonight because of an outstanding appearance by T.J. House of the Akron Aeros. Can House take the next step in his development? Joind Andrew Zajac with another edition of ATF.

Jimenez struggles as Indians fall 7-2 to Red Sox
Ubaldo Jimenez was on the mound again for the Indians on Tuesday, but the only consistent thing about Jimenez's performances so far has been inconsistency and that was again the case on Tuesday.

Join the IBI's Nathan Kemp as he recaps all the action from what was a night that many Tribe fans would rather soon forget.

Launching Off With The Aeros: 4/9/13 – 4/15/13
Things could have been better for the Akron Aeros over the past week, with the team dropping five of their six games and falling to the bottom of the Eastern League. The pitching was the culprit for the Aeros, as the team allowed almost a run an inning. Almost no offense in baseball can make up for that, even though Akron's offense did a decent job. To see who was hot in Akron and who was not, check out Launching Off With The Aeros, after the jump...

Second Thoughts: A sabermetric look thus far
The Indians were off on Monday, but the IBI's Kevin Dean used the opportunity to dig into the team's advanced numbers 11 games into the season.
