Around The Farm: April 24, 2013
Wednesday night was a cold and wet one in Northeast Ohio, as anyone who braved the weather to catch a ballgame can attest. Despite this, a few players found a way to overcome the weather, including Akron designated hitter Chun Chen, Columbus starting pitcher Trevor Bauer, and others. Jim Piascik was one of those who froze last night (as he watched the Aeros hold on to a 5-4 victory) and he will recap the night in the minor leagues as he takes you Around The Farm.

The Nationals held the Mudcats scoreless for the first time this season. With the offense failing to score, Shawn Morimando suffered the loss for Carolina despite an impressive outing.

Aeros take series with 5-4 win over Thunder
The Akron Aeros completed a three-game series against the Trenton Thunder with a 5-4 win and some contributions at the plate from Chun Chen.

Indians bats go cold again, fall to Chicago, 3-2
Just as this offensive roller coaster looked to be on its way up, things took another dive for the Indians on Wednesday, as they fell to their division rival Chicago White Sox, 3-2. For the second time in less than two weeks, Tribe bats were silenced by another stellar pitching performance by Chicago left-hander Jose Quintana. The White Sox starter limited the team to just two runs on four hits through five innings, ending Cleveland’s three game winning streak. Join Jim Berdysz as he recaps Wednesday's game, after the jump...

Running outta starters at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Indians have issued tryouts to the staff of Indians Baseball Insider, looking for the next starter to fill in a spot in the Tribe rotation.

The Indians may have been rained out on Tuesday, but all of the team's minor league affiliates were still in action.

Launching Off With The Aeros: 4/16/13 – 4/22/13
The Aeros continued to stay at the bottom of the Eastern League over the past week as they lost four of seven and fell to 6-12. The youth and inexperience that makes the team exciting to watch from a prospect standpoint is the culprit for the losing, as most of the players are at the Double-A level for the first time. There were still plenty of noteworthy performances, however, especially a competition between two dueling aces. For all that and more, join Jim Piascik as he Launches Off With The Aeros.

The State of the Rotation
The Tribe has been shut out some nights and scored 19 runs the next. It may be just a team trying to find its groove as much of the new additions to the roster are adjusting to the change of scenery. However, the starting rotation, which already came into the season with several question marks, is already in a semi-critical state. The IBI's Jake Dungan takes a look at the state of the Indians rotation...
