AKRON - Over the years at the minor league level, lots of players come and go, and many fade from memory over time. After Saturday night, one thing is for certain. Jesus Aguilar will never be forgotten by Akron Aeros fans.Aguilar, Akron's gregarious, 6-foot-3, power-hitting first baseman, added another chapter to his MVP-worthy season when he laced a two-run double in the eighth inning that gave the Aeros the lead and paved the way for a 5-3 victory over the Reading Fightin Phils at Canal Park.It was the second straight night that Aguilar delivered a game-altering hit in the bottom of the eighth. On Friday, he slugged a three-run homer that gave the Aeros a 3-2 victory over the Fightin' Phils in the series opener.Not only did his timely two-bagger help win a ball game Saturday, it also made Aguilar one of the top run-producers in the 25-year history of the Aeros franchise. His two-run double, along with his RBI single in the first inning, raised Aguilar's RBI total to 97...

In defense of the under-appreciated Carlos Santana

In a season that largely has been better than expected, it’s hard to tell that based only on the vitriolic commentary about the Cleveland Indians. Yes, of late, among the variety of possible scapegoats, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera has been the most prominent and deserving punching bag. The 27-year-old former All-Star has been all over the place this season and is mired in a rough...

A three year Indians review: Left Field

It is time to continue with the three-year comparisons for the Indians. At this point, it is too late in the year to do half-season comparisons, so I will be doing full season versus this year. Since there's only about 40 games left in the year this comparison will be close but not perfect. Both slash lines and wRC+ are rate-based stats, so this comparison should be fine. WAR...

Player of the Game: Ubaldo Jimenez (5 2/3 innings, 1 hit, 1 ER, 5 BB / 8 SO) The Leadoff There are victories, and then there are much needed victories.

Tribe starter Ubaldo Jimenez (9-7, 4.00 ERA) flirted with a no-hitter until the sixth inning as the Cleveland offense...

Around The Farm: August 18, 2013

Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game. David Cooper (Arizona League, 1B) - 4-5, 2 R, 1 2B - I think that David Cooper's rehab period in Arizona may be a short one.  Between David playing like a Triple-A guy hitting...

Why Scott Kazmir Should Be Sent to the Bullpen

On Sunday afternoon against Oakland, Scott Kazmir struggled in his second consecutive game, despite being giving more than a week off between starts. On the whole this season, Kazmir have been much greater than expected (easy to do when nothing is expected), making 22 starts, winning seven and striking out 107 in 119 innings along the way. While he has struggled sporadically, his...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Missed opportunities spawn series loss in Oakland

Another week and another huge series came upon our Cleveland Indians. This time, it wasn’t a division foe, but rather one of the teams they were facing for one of the two AL Wild Card spots in the Oakland Athletics.  The A’s are a lot like the Indians in that their offense leaves a lot to be desired and when you look at the lineup. It doesn’t wow you, but they hit you with...

8/18 Recap: Indians 3 - Athletics 7

Raburn was lifted for a pinch-hitter after going 1-3, but still had a high enough POG score (2.99) to beat out Jason Kipnis (2.73) and Carlos Santana (1.99). Feathers Up Jason Kipnis continues to be the best and most important player in the Indians line up and as usual, today...
