On-Deck with the Captains: 8/21/13 - 8/27/13
The season is winding down to its final week and the Lake County Captains won’t be seeing any postseason action this year. The past two weeks were vital for the team's chances to advance, but the wins just didn’t happen as the team was swept by West Michigan and dropped two of three to Dayton.

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.
