Lowery rebounding from tough 2012, showing promise in Akron
One could be forgiven for selling their Jake Lowery stock after 2012. The catcher was presented with a challenging assignment and simply could not manage it, ending the year with a demotion and plenty of questions. So far in 2013, though, Lowery has shown that last year was a fluke. Given another aggressive promotion due to injuries, Lowery filled in admirably and bounced back in a strong way. He recently talked to Jim Piascik about what Double-A is like, his approach at the plate and behind it, and much more.

Second Thoughts Game #72: Twins 1, Indians 5
Some were starting to question the future of Scott Kazmir as a starter for the Indians after his last start against Washington, when he served up five runs, four hits and three home runs in just two and two-thirds innings of work. Whether it was the rain, a mechanical issue or just another example of the inconsistency that the left-hander has dealt with so far this season, he had nothing working for him that night.
