Indians Baseball Insider:
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.
Ronny Rodriguez (SS, Akron): 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 E
Rodriguez may not have had the best night in Akron Wednesday (that honor belongs to the man in the next section down), but he does have the best revelation. Some fun with numbers:
Before May 13, 2012 in Carolina: .599 OPS
After May 13, 2012 in Carolina: .802 OPS
Before May 14, 2013 in Akron: .552 OPS
After May 14, 2013 in Akron: .863 OPS
For the past three weeks, Rodriguez has been a lot better, though that could just be small sample size noise. In order to read anything into it, Rodriguez must have made some sort of adjustment. Watching him Wednesday night, I thought his swing mechanics looked completely different, and after the game, Aeros manager Edwin Rodriguez confirmed that R. Rodriguez changed his swing three weeks ago with...

New Era had reportedly released the wrong image for the hat, assuming that all MLB teams would be using their logos for the celebratory lids. The hats displayed the typical Native American caricature covered in white stars surrounded...
Poor Indians manager Terry Francona. He probably thought his own misguided dependence on chewing tobacco was the most he had to worry about. It turns out that one of his pitchers, Chris Perez, has been cited for receiving a "significant" amount of marijuana at his house. No arrest has been made, but it looks like the 27-year old will have some explaining to do to Tito,...
The Cleveland Indians have placed Asdrubal Cabrera on the disabled list with a strain in his right quad. Cabrera will now miss at least two weeks. Mike Aviles will pick up the vast majority of the starts in Cabrera’s absence and should be picked up by owners looking for a replacement.

The Indians selected prep outfielder Clint Frazier with their first pick last night, and it is a pick that Tony is very excited about. Unlike the selection of Tyler Naquin last season who many felt was a reach and he did not have much prospect sizzle, Frazier has all the glitz and sex appeal people look for in a first round pick. In his Day 1 recap, Tony shares his thoughts on the...

over one-third of a pound of marijuana mailed to their home.
Let’s get this out of the way: Georgia high school outfielder Clint Frazier is not the next Mike Trout.
Of course, Trout was the No. 25 selection in 2009, a high-schooler out of New Jersey. The 6-foot-1, 220-lb.-monster of an athlete is an absolute star and posted one of the most dominant rookie seasons in MLB history last year. There’s a reason why he was in the MVP discussion...
