Minor Happenings: Sturdevant has re-established his value
In today’s Minor Happenings the IBI's Tony Lastoria takes a look at the comeback that right-handed reliever Tyler Sturdevant is making, why he has had so much success this season and where he fits into the Indians’ Major League plans. He also looks at infielder Paul Hendrix’s outstanding month of May and All Star snub, how left-hander Luis Lugo is having an excellent season that many are not even aware he is having and how infielder Audy Ciriaco has been a man of many hats and been one of the Indians better minor league signings at Triple-A in some time.

Around the Farm: June 4, 2014
You know it's a good night offensively on the farm when you average 10 runs per team. Columbus, Akron, and Carolina all went off at the plate Wednesday, scoring runs left and right on the way to victory. Leading the charge in Akron was a familiar face in second baseman Joey Wendle, as the infielder typically makes waves with his bat. Join Jim Piascik as he looks at Wendle's performance, breaks down Yhoxian Medina's effort in Carolina, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Due von Schamann pitched five innings and gave up four runs in the win.

A notorious slow starter, Moncrief still positive as June arrives
If you’re looking for someone with a contagious attitude, look no further than outfielder Carlos Moncrief. The native Mississippian has a trademark grin that shows up in the outfield and in the batter’s box, and it’s pretty easy to see why. A slow starter in the past, the arrival of June is just in time to heat up his cold bat. The IBI's Grant Miller recently sat down with the Indians top prospect about how he is adjusting to Triple-A and what he is doing to adjust to the new level.

The WAR Room: Colon and Aviles riding sinkers to great results
The WAR Room is back again, bringing you the 2014 advanced stats for every Cleveland minor leaguer. After looking at the hitters last week, today we focus on the pitchers. It is still early enough that there is some noise in the numbers, but at this point in the season, we are starting to see some interesting trends emerge. Among those trends is the success of Akron RubberDucks right-hander Joe Colon and Lake County Captains right-hander Robbie Aviles, both of whom are finding success with their sinkers. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down in this week's edition of The WAR Room.

Clippers drop series opener to Bats, 5-3
Chris Nelson continues to be the bane of the Clippers existence.

In today’s edition of Minor Happenings, the IBI's Tony Lastoria takes a look at the emergence of Joseph Colon as a starting pitching prospect for the Indians, the significant strides he has made with his stuff over the past year and what his future holds with the Indians.

Around the Farm: May 29, 2014
It was a tale of two offensive explosions Thursday night. On one hand, the Akron RubberDucks erupted for 16 runs, led by a stellar performance from Bryson Myles. On the other hand, the Columbus Clippers allowed 18 runs, capped off by turning to Elliot Johnson to close out the game on the mound. Elsewhere, Adam Plutko made his Carolina League debut, Lake County *only* allowed eight runs (breaking the mold set by Akron and Columbus), and much more. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down and takes you Around the Farm.

Clippers overpowered by Knights, 18-9
Some days a lineup can seem like they can hit anything and everything. That feeling must not be common for the last-place Charlotte Knights (18-35), but they certainly had a night to remember as they recorded 20 hits in an 18-9 victory over the Columbus Clippers (24-28)

Trend Spotting: Jesus Aguilar and a case study in ballpark effect
Tracking Jesus Aguilar throughout the minor league system it appeared that he had two tangible skills worth monitoring, on-base ability and power, which if developed would carry him to the big leagues. He had a big jump in his power numbers early this season with a transition to Huntington Park in Columbus, and the IBI's Michael Hattery offers up a case study as to why we need to take offensive performances in Columbus (and Akron) with a grain of salt.

Around the Farm: May 28, 2014
With the month of June approaching, it is likely the time worthy players will start earning promotions to the next level. Adam Plutko started the process, moving from Lake County to Carolina, but a few others look primed to make jumps of their own. Lake County infielder Paul Hendrix is one, as he continues to rake, as is fellow Captain Jordan Milbrath. However, Wednesday's headliner, Cole Sulser, is not as close to a promotion as Hendrix or Milbrath, but the right-hander was impressive in his own right. Join Jim Piascik as he analyzes Sulser's turnaround and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Columus Clippers fall to Charlotte Knights in extra innings, 5-2
Free baseball was played at Huntington Park Wednesday morning as the Clippers once again went into extra innings with the Charlotte Knights. With no end in sight southpaw Nick Hagadone took over in tenth – letting up a big fly over the left field wall for a three-run homer, putting the Knights up 5-2. The Clippers were unable to dig themselves out of Hagadone's hole and fell to Charlotte for the first time the series.

Clippers plate eight, beat Knights
The Columbus Clippers have been run deficient over the last couple of weeks, but they took care of that notion in the first inning of Tuesday night’s 8-6 win over the Charlotte Knights at Huntington Park in front of 7,858 in attendance.
