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.
Francisco Lindor (SS, Akron): 3-for-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 SO
Well, it took 10 games, but Lindor finally struck out at the Double-A level. He added a double and home run last night after his "failure," though, as the shortstop pushed his overall line to .441/.578/.647 in those astounding first 10 games. Much like Yasiel Puig, Lindor cannot stay white-hot forever; he will soon start regressing to a more normal set of numbers. How far Lindor regresses, though, is up for debate. After drawing 10 walks and stealing five bases, Lindor is showing a mature approach and has not even come close to being phased by the promotion. I do not know what to expect from Lindor going forward, but after this past week and a half, nothing would surprise me.
Juan Herrera (SS, Mahoning Valley): 2...
BEST OF MAXIM
Akron, OH – By the third time Francisco Lindor walked up to the plate Thursday night at Canal Park, the Akron faithful began to chant, "Fran-cis-co." The highly-touted Indians prospect put on a show and gave everyone a look into the type of hitter he can be, going 3-for-5 with a home run, a double and three runs batted in to lead the Aeros to a 5-1 win over the Richmond...
It’s been quite a while since we saw Josh Tomlin on the mound. On Friday night, however, the right-hander made his season debut following Tommy John surgery less than one year ago. Per his own Twitter account as well as Tony Lastoria of IBI, Tomlin pitched a scoreless inning in the Arizona Fall League.
Nice to see @jtomlin43 out on the hill tonight for the first time in a rehab...
CLEVELAND -- After twice contemplating a sacrifice bunt, Ryan Raburn hit a walk-off, three-run home run in the 11th inning off Jason Frasor, giving the Cleveland Indians a 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
After shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and catcher Carlos Santana opened the inning with back-to-back singles off Frasor (0-2, 3.26), Raburn squared to bunt on two pitches...
We have been waiting for the offense to wake up and they finally did. The hot and cold streaks are no doubt frustrating. It is games like this one where the Wahoos scored 10 runs on 13 hits, where you scratch your head at how they can be so anemic at times. A day after a second straight blunder-filled one run loss, the angry Indians took their frustrations out on Mariners left-hander...
Pitching has been the name of the game for the Clippers as the second-half of their season has gotten off to a promising 4-3 start. They could easily be 7-0 as their losses came by three runs or less (two of them were by a one-run deficit). With a limited offense, the pitching staff is key and if they keep the runs down, Columbus has a shot of making a late-season push for the playoffs...
The Cleveland Indians’ Class-A affiliate, Lake Count Captains are jumping on the latest flop of a TV show and buzz-worthy on Twitter TV show’s bandwagon for a new promotion, and you can’t help but laugh. The team will be holding a Sharknado promotion on Aug. 15th and it will have everything if their ridiculous press release is any indication.
(Eastlake, OH) – The Lake County...
A Bench of Riches
Since day one of the season, the Indians have been blessed with a luxury they have not enjoyed for quite some time. The bench assembled in the offseason by the Tribe front office is arguably the most improved element of the team and one of the top groups of utility players in the league, if not all of baseball. Players possessing the ability to play multiple positions...
WINSTON-SALEM - The Carolina Mudcats jumped out in front early and never looked back, defeating the Winston Salem Dash 7-2 Friday night. The win continued Carolina’s season-high win streak to six games. Carolina (19-14, 41-62) moved to a season-high five games over .500 for the second half.
The win clinched a series win in Winston-Salem for Carolina. The series win was the...
CLEVELAND -- A downer turned into a triumph because a bunt turned into a swing.And that swing in the bottom of the 11th inning Friday night turned into a Ryan Raburn three-run home run that gave the Indians an 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers.This one ended gleeful.
But it could have been glum as the Indians went to extra innings after squandering a 7-1 lead -- they hadnt blown a...

It is 7-1, Kluber is pitching well as usual, the Tribe seems to be rolling, winning a very important first game of the series. This is exactly the shot in the arm they needed, a big win making it two in a row, and then all of the sudden it happened. The Tribe had to go to the bullpen.
Yes they had a four run lead with three innings to play, and yes it was against a middle of the...
Ryan Raburn twice faked a bunt. There was nothing phony about his next swing.
Raburn hit a three-run homer in the 11th inning off Jason Frasor, giving the Cleveland Indians a wild and sloppy 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
After Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana singled off Frasor (0-2), Raburn squared to bunt on two pitches and possibly drop a sacrifice before...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Ryan Raburn's three-run homer in the 11th inning off Jason Frasor gave the Cleveland Indians a wild and sloppy 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
After Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana singled off Frasor (0-2), Raburn pulled a 2-1 pitch onto the home-run porch in left to rescue the Indians, who blew a 7-1 lead and nearly lost to a Texas team...
SEATTLE (AP) -- Scott Kazmir allowed just one hit over his eight innings, Michael Bourn hit his first career grand slam and the Cleveland Indians routed the Seattle Mariners 10-1 Wednesday.
