Found June 01, 2014 on Indians Baseball Insider:
Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.  Tyler Holt (Columbus - Game 1, CF) - 4-4, 3 R, 2 2B, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 SB Holt continues his solid start to his International League career by extending his Triple-A hitting streak to six games in grand fashion.  If he can keep playing anywhere near this well in the long term at Columbus, he will make a serious case for a call up to the major league club. Elliot Johnson (Columbus - Game 1, RF) - 3-4, 3 R, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 Sac Fly, 1 SB Johnson also continues a recent hot streak with a huge day in the opener of Huntington Park's (and possibly the Clippers') first ever day-night doubleheader.  To give you an idea of how well he is doing, a 1-for-4 nightcap dropped his last 10 games' batting average to .300. Ryan Rohlinger (Columbus - Game 1, 2B) - 3-6, 2 R, 1 2B, 3 RBI Rohling...

Lonnie Chisenhall: Hot to Start the Year

Lonnie Chisenhall looked to be the odd man out coming into the 2014 season. The Indians were sold on playing Carlos Santana at third as consistently as they could. Each time early on when Chisenhall was put in the lineup though, he was having multiple hit nights. It became apparent that Chisenhall was playing a different way this year. Chisenhall was a highly touted prospect years...

Second Thoughts Game #55: Colorado 2, Cleveland 5
