LeVon Washington continues to play well at Lake County and there were several other notable good and not so good performances on the night. The IBI's Arthur Kinney takes us around the farm as he recaps the action...

Minor Happenings: Frazier's start is great, but caution needed

Orbiting Cleveland: A future forecast for the rotation
With the Indians just 2.5 games back in the AL Wild Card race, it's clear that this season is far from over. The Tribe will likely stay in contention all through September and a big reason for that is the team's starting rotation. The rotation has been especially impressive, and while it's played a key role in the team's success this year, it will probably play an even bigger role in the team's chances for contention in future years. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he ponders that thought in this week's edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Around The Farm: August 22, 2013
Even though Danny Salazar has come up to the major leagues and gotten results, the organization has not done the best job of developing starting pitching in recent years. There are a few pitchers making waves now, but long-term success will rely on more than one or two arms. Joseph Colon is one of those guys Cleveland needs to develop in order to have more starting depth and he showed what he is capable of Thursday. To read all about Colon's night and everything else you need to know about the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik as he takes you Around The Farm.

Crushers fold late in 7-6 loss
Beat me once, shame on you; beat me twice, shame on me; beat me three times, I'll pack my bags and go home. That's roughly how the saying goes, anyway. At least, that's the version the Crushers will be saying as they leave Normal, Illinois in a fashion that has been the opposite of normal for them of late.

Rodriguez's walk-off home run takes Scrappers to 3-2 win
For the third consecutive night, the Mahoning Valley Scrappers offense was unable to figure out the Jamestown Jammers pitching staff. That is, until the bottom of the ninth inning. With only three hits through the first eight innings, the Scrappers offense exploded in the final frame, culminating with a walk-off home run by Nellie Rodriguez.

Sloppy defense allows Aeros past B-Mets 7-3
The Binghamton Mets came into Akron Thursday night fresh off of clinching the Eastern Division. Not that the Akron Aeros cared. The Aeros (62-68) defeated the B-Mets (81-50) by a score of 7-3 thanks to four Binghamton errors and a four-run first inning.

Kime goes from small town to big time in pros
The city of Defiance, Ohio is a bit of cliché. With a population just under 17,000 and the typical graduating class just over 100 students, Defiance is small-town, U.S.A. in its purest form. But the town has pumped out some baseball talent over the years, most recently Dace Kime whom the Indians selected in the 3rd round of the MLB Draft this past June. The IBI's Robert Fuller looks at where Kime started his career and where it is going.

Trend Spotting: On Swisher, Expectations and Acquisitions
Even the most emotionally distant type of Indians fan felt as if Christmas came on December 23rd when Nick Swisher signed with the Tribe. Swisher brought a couple of things, most notably being leadership, an infectious smile and an impressive track record of production stability. Unfortunately for Swisher, the hype of his signing as well as irrational expectations has created derision and criticism of his performance that may not be entirely fair. The IBI's Michael Hattery breaks down Swisher's performance this season.

Sailing with the Clippers: 8/15/13 to 8/21/13
With 12 games remaining in the 2013 season it appears as though the Clippers have run out of time. At 64-68, Columbus stands 7.5 games back of the Wild Card spot and even further in the International League West at 9 affairs. That said, there have been some good (and some bad) performances over the past week and the IBI's Ethan Day recaps the week that was for the Clippers in his weekly notebook.
