Rodriguez is slugging his way to success
“A star is born” is a clichè used in every sport. Often, it refers to a phenom, born with extraordinary talent in a given field, who has finally made the big time. Very rarely do you hear the words, “a star is built”. That is, unless you find yourself in the Mahoning Valley Scrappers clubhouse and bear witness to the emerging talent that is Nellie Rodriguez.

Around the Farm: August 5, 2013

The writing is on the glove for Lindor: 'Be consistent'
Look closely at Francisco Lindor’s glove and you’ll see an interesting monogram. Embroidered on the shortstop’s Rawling’s model is “Lindor – BC.” The “BC” doesn’t stand for a college. It isn’t the initials of a girlfriend or family member. In this case, “BC” is a mantra: be consistent. That is what he has been and then some this year, and the IBI's Stephanie Metzger recently sat down and talked with the top prospect about his season to date.

Around the Farm: August 4, 2013
Even though two of the Indians minor league affiliates were off there was still a lot of notable action among the four affiliates that played on Sunday.
