In this week’s first edition of Minor Happenings this week, Tony takes a look at several pitchers throughout the organization.

Second Thoughts Game #23: Indians 9, Royals 0
Who was that masked man? That was not the Ubaldo we have all come to loathe, and to his credit he pitched a wonderful ballgame and helped the Indians cruise to a much needed 9-0 win and more importantly finish the road trip with a 5-4 record. Ryan Raburn got into the action and clubbed two home runs, Carlos Santana continues to sizzle, and Asdrubal Cabrera looks to be heating up. All of that and more in today's "second thoughts"...

Around the Farm: April 29, 2013
The Indians lower level affiliates have begun to produce some interesting position players over the past couple of season, but there aren't many as intriguing as Lake County's LeVon Washington. He has an abundance of talent, but has had a tough time staying on the field, as injury issues have sideline him over the past three seasons. After a 5-for-5 outing on Saturday, the centerfielder was at it again on Monday Night. Find out what he did in today's ATF...

Altoona, Pimentel blank Aeros 2-0
You could forgive the Akron Aeros for assuming that Sunday's four home run barrage was a sign that their offense was heating up and about to take off. There is no way that their huge effort would be followed by a complete shutdown, right? Sometimes baseball just makes no sense. The Aeros (10-14) lost 2-0 Monday to the Altoona Curve (11-13) in the first game of a four game series at Peoples Natural Gas Field. Curve starter Stolmy Pimentel (2-0, 2.74 FIP) held the Aeros down for seven innings, striking out five while lowering his ERA to a miniscule 0.30.

Notes from the Wigwam: One of "those" weeks
The offensive woes continued for the Indians this past week as the team went 2-3 and averaged only 1.33 runs per game in their three losses. There were some positives though as Carlos Santana continued to rake, and Mike Aviles showed why he's such a valuable member of the team's bench. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he recaps all of the action from the past week in the latest edition of Notes from the Wigwam.

Second Thoughts Game #21 & #22: Indians split twin bill
It was a tale of two completely different ballgames on Sunday, as the Indians split a day-night doubleheader with the first place Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

The IBI's Jim Berdysz shares his "second thoughts" on the doubleheader.

Around the Farm: April 28, 2013
It was a rough night for starters on the farm, but for two totally different reasons. In Columbus, the Clippers' starter, Daisuke Matsuzaka flirted with perfection through three innings before an injury took him out of the game. The Mudcats starter, Jacob Lee, got lit up like a pinball machine. Tune into today's ATF to find out which Indians players deserve to sit at the top of the prospect food train.

The 2013 Transaction Rundown:  April 20-28
The transaction nuttiness continues as the Big Club's inability to stay healthy continues to result in a domino effect of upheaval throughout the organization, especially at Class AA Akron and above. Lou Marson came off and went back on the DL, Cord Phelps hit the DL, several minor league players made their season debuts, and much more.

Akron powers past B-Mets 7-5
The Akron Aeros used four home runs to slug their way past the Binghamton Mets 7-5 Sunday afternoon at NYSEG Stadium, winning their second consecutive series. Akron is up to a 10-13 record now after a fairly rough start to the season. Heading into Sunday, the Aeros only owned a paltry .101 ISO and 12 home runs as a team, but from the most likely to the least likely, they broke out in a big way against Binghamton (12-11).
