Orbiting Cleveland: Gauging trade deadline priorities
The MLB Trade Deadline is less than a week away, which means that there are plenty of rumors as to what the Cleveland Indians should do. Everyone seems to have their own take on who the Tribe should go after, but it's evident that the team is in need of an upgrade. Mark Reynolds has struggled immensely over the past few months, and the IBI's Steve Orbanek returns to Orbiting Cleveland this week to opine that the Indians need to acquire a professional bat to replace Reynolds.

International Report: Indians continue to add talent
The Indians have been quite busy on the international signing front over the past month plus. Back in early June the Indians signed shortstop Yu Chen-Chang out of Taiwan, followed that up with two splashes at the start of the International Signing Period on July 2nd by inking shortstop Willy Castro and outfielder Junior Soto out of the Dominican Republic, and then just a few days ago came to terms on Cuban right-handed pitcher Leandro Linares. Tony shares the details on each signing...

Second Thoughts: Lineup optimization and Yan Gomes
The Indians offense is strewn with inconsistency. It may be a challenge to pick at an offense that just dropped 10 runs in Seattle but we all know that the week preceding was an offensive struggle. The IBI's Michael Hattery takes a stab at analyzing and determining what he believes is the Indians optimum lineup, and it is much different than what Francona has been writing into the lineup card of late. He also chimes in with a request to get Yan Gomes more playing time.

Lindor-Mania takes over Canal Park in Aeros Win
By the third time Francisco Lindor walked up to the plate Thursday night at Canal Park, the Akron faithful began to chant, "Fran-cis-co." The highly-touted Indians prospect put on a show and gave everyone a look into the type of hitter he can be, going 3-for-5 with a home run, a double and three runs batted in to lead the Aeros to a 5-1 win over the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Around The Farm: July 25, 2013
We all know Francisco Lindor is an elite player, but watching his video game numbers pile up upon his promotion to Double-A is an entirely new level of dominance. Lindor did show his human side a little bit Thursday -- striking out for the first time -- but he more than made up for it in power. To read about Lindor's night, a Mahoning Valley infielder showing he can hit, and much more, join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm.

A three year Indians review: Shortstop
In his third part of this series, the IBI's Jeff Ellis takes a look at the shortstop position for the Indians over the past three seasons. The first two positions he looked at were first base and second base and the Indians have seen significant improvement at both, and this time he reviews the shortstop position which is the only position which has stayed consistent over the last few years for the Indians.

Sailing with the Clippers: 7/18/13 to 7/24/13
Pitching has been the name of the game for the Clippers as the second-half of their season has gotten off to a promising 4-3 start. They could easily be 7-0 as their losses came by three runs or less (two of them were by a one-run deficit). With a limited offense, the pitching staff is key and if they keep the runs down, Columbus has a shot of making a late-season push for the playoffs. The IBI's Ethan Day recaps the week that was for the Clippers...

Around The Farm: July 24, 2013

Granger's walk-off takes Crushers past Miners 3-2
For some reason, even after Tuesday's 17-inning marathon, the Miners hadn't had enough of their stay at All Pro Freight Stadium. Seth Granger, meanwhile, was tired of hosting them. He sent them packing with a walk-off, RBI single to left-center field. The walk-off gave the Crushers a 3-2 victory, pulling them to within a game of third place in the East, behind the very Miners team they just took two of three from.
