IBI Hot List: 4/29/13 - 5/6/13
The IBI Hot List is back for another week and recaps the hot (and some cold) performances in the Indians system over the past week. The top 20 performances over the past seven days are ranked with some commentary, and the five worst showings are also ranked with some commentary there as well. This week I take a look at the hot showing by shortstop Francisco Lindor, outfielder LeVon Washington, right-hander Jordan Cooper, outfielder Logan Vick and others, and then also look at the recent struggles of shortstop Dorssys Paulino, first baseman Jesus Aguilar, left-hander Shawn Morimando and others.

Second Thoughts Game #29: Indians 7, Athletics 3
The Indians got back on the winning path on Monday as they belted four homers and beat the Athletics, 7-3. One of those four homers was a gigantic moon shot of a homer off the bat of Mark Reynolds, who got sweet revenge after he had just been hit with a pitch in an earlier at bat. Also, Ubaldo Jimenez was good for his second straight start. The IBI's Kevin Dean talks about that and more...

The 2013 Transaction Rundown:  April 29-May 5
Ezequiel Carrera stopped in Cleveland for a cup of coffee (one of those really small ones they serve espressos in), Dice-K went on the DL (likely causing the entire Japanese sports media set up camp outside Clippers trainer Jim Quinlan's office), and the mass exodus (or is that M*A*S*H* exodus) to DLs all over the org continued. However, in the good news department, some of the Wounded Wahoos from the Big Club began to take their first steps toward their respective returns to The Show. Join the IBI's Arthur Kinney as he covers all of this and more in this week's Transaction Rundown...

Notes from the Wigwam: Just win, baby!
It's been a great week for the Cleveland Indians as the Tribe went 5-1 to get back to .500 at 14-14 and move into third place in the AL Central. Ryan Raburn was scorching hot at the plate as he went 11-for-13 across a three-game span to lead the Tribe. Trevor Bauer also made his return this past week, and it appears as if he now could be on his way back... and for good. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he recaps the week that was in the weekly IBI staple, Notes from the Wigwam.

Second Thoughts Game #28: Twins 4, Indians 2
As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Cleveland snapped their six-game winning streak Sunday afternoon as they fell to the Minnesota Twins, 4-2. Tribe bats cooled off considerably as the team was blanked by a strong pitching performance from Twins starter Mike Pelfrey (3-3, 6.35 ERA). Indians starter Corey Kluber (2-1, 3.06 ERA) worked out of some early trouble to surrender three runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings, but the solid effort was not enough.

Moncrief's blast takes Aeros past Baysox 2-1
What could right fielder Carlos Moncrief possibly do on Sunday to surpass his walk-off single Saturday night? How about a mammoth go-ahead home run off of a consensus top-25 prospect? The Akron Aeros defeated the Bowie Baysox 2-1 Sunday afternoon at Canal Park, winning the series and moving to .500 for the first time all year. Defense and pitching ruled for most of the day until Moncrief made it all his.
