Morimando a model of consistency for Captains
Low-A Lake County lefty Shawn Morimando has remained a model of consistency in the ever-shifting Lake County starting rotation this season. The pitching staff has seen various players converted from relievers, sent to the bullpen, called up, or sent down, but Morimando has been one Captain to answer the bell every fifth day for manager Dave Wallace. Mike Zavagno recently sat down with Morimando to discuss his season to date.

Around the Farm: August 7, 2012
While the big league Indians are as painful to watch as the old Sylvester Stallone/Dolly Parton flick, Rhinestone right now (maybe more painful), the minor league system continues to showcase an abundance of talent. Is Scott Barnes the next great lefty reliever? Is Tony Wolters a top ten prospect? Can Ronny Rodriguez hit 20 home runs in a season? Check out who climbed the ATF mountain on Tuesday night, after the jump...

Rodriguez showing no fear in Lake County
The Lake County Captains are a team full of prospective minor league ballplayers. With the exception of Francisco Lindor, none may have as much talent as Luigi Rodriguez. Rodriguez possesses that multi-tool ability that everybody covets, and while he has a long road to the majors, his plus-plus speed just may get him there early. IPI's Stephanie Metzger spent some time with Rodriguez...after the jump...
