Minor Happenings: Wendle is blossoming into a star
A very Happy Fourth of July to all of the IBI readers! What better to celebrate our independence than good food, fireworks, and another edition of Minor Happenings! In today’s abbreviated version of the Happenings on the Indians farm (still over 2300 words), Tony takes a long look at the emerging star that is second baseman Joey Wendle and just how good of a prospect he really is for the Indians. He also provides tons of comments from Ross Atkins on Clint Frazier, Mitch Brown, Kieran Lovegrove, Juan Herrera, and many others.

Sailing with the Clippers: 6/27/13 - 7/3/13
The losing ways of the Columbus Clippers continued this past week as the team finished below .500 again at 2-6.

July has gotten off to a slightly better start for the Clippers who are currently 2-2 in the month. Join the IBI's Ethan Day as he recaps the week that was for the Clippers...

Second Thoughts Game #84: Indians 5, Royals 6
The Indians experienced all sorts of delays on Wednesday night, first due to weather and then another one later in the game due to a power outage. In the midst of all of that the Indians bullpen struggles resurfaced again as Bryan Shaw threw gas on the first in the sixth to turn a 3-1 lead into a 5-3 disadvantage. The IBI's Michael Hattery shares his second thoughts on some questionable bullpen management by Terry Francona.

Mejia's lead AZL Indians past AZL Royals, 4-3
In what is becoming an uncomfortable theme thus far on the season, the AZL Indians blew another lead in the late innings, but managed to come back and top the AZL Royals by a count of 4-3 Wednesday night at the Indians’ facility in Goodyear. The victory was largely due to the success of Joel and Francisco Mejia, who combined for three of the AZL Indians’ seven hits and three of their four runs on the night.

Indians fall in a heartbreaker to Kansas City, 6-5
Kansas City seemed like they tried every way to beat the Indians Wednesday night off the field. No, it wasn't Mother Nature or a power outage that would prove disastrous, but rather Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer that left the Tribe in the dark, as they fell to the Royals 6-5, snapping their five game winning streak.

Around The Farm: July 3, 2013
Sometimes greatness can spoil people. Francisco Lindor could spend almost every night atop Around The Farm, though sometimes we can take his all-around excellence for granted. Lindor is one of the transcendent prospects in the game of baseball and is the kind of talent every team wants in its system. The shortstop was at it again Wednesday night, along with plenty of other players throughout the system. To read all about them, join Jim Piascik as he goes Around The Farm.
