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. One very notable performance came from lefty Matt Whitehouse who is coming on strong at Mahoning Valley and who may be a sleeper from this year's draft.
