Mother Nature seems determined to prevent Cleveland from playing any baseball games, but there has still been plenty of action up and down the system.
Between the major and league teams, no one has better coverage than Indians Baseball Insider.
Here are all of the pieces that went up on IBI over the past week:
IBI Hot List: 4/15/13 - 4/21/13: In his weekly feature, the IBI Hot List, Tony Lastoria runs down the Hot 20 in the system from the past week, including Carlos Carrasco, T.J. House, Logan Vick, and many more.
Minor Happenings: When will Indians make a House call?: In his bi-weekly feature, Minor Happenings, Tony Lastoria looks at T.J. House's start to the season and when he should get called up to Columbus, talks to Assistant Director of Player Development Carter Hawkins, and much more.

AROUND THE WEB
After taking a line drive off his elbow in a start last night for Columbus, Carlos Carrasco appears to have established a rather morbid method for evading the suspensions Major League Baseball tries to impose upon him. At press time, the extent of Carrasco’s latest injury remained unknown, but if initial reports are any indication, another prolonged stint on the disabled list...

Taking the plunge on Masterson
It is something that has not been talked about much yet, but right-hander Justin Masterson is getting closer and closer to free agency with every start he makes. At the same time, with every good start he makes, his price tag goes up and up as well.
Masterson, who just turned 28-years old last...
No matter how you look at it, there’s one constant when it comes to Major League baseball: There’s 25 men going to war each day and playing a key role in making or breaking the season of a Major League team.
From the start of the season through September 1, every MLB team is composed of 25 men who are out there every day competing in an effort to maximize their team’s chances...
Tonight’s game between the Indians and Royals has been postponed tonight due to rain in the Kansas City area. The game will be made up on Sunday as part of a day/night double header that features games at 2:10 p.m. and 8:10 p.m.
This is the fourth rain out of the year for the Tribe who sit three games back of the division leading Royals. Coming into the weekend the Tribe boasts...
The transaction nuttiness continues as the Big Club's inability to stay healthy continues to result in a domino effect of upheaval throughout the organization, especially at Class AA Akron and above.
The week saw Lou Marson get off the 15-day DL and promptly reenter the list only four days later. The beginning of the week saw Cord Phelps demoted to AAA Columbus, where he isn...
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.
Yan Gomes (Columbus, C) - 2-3, 2 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K - While Thursday night's performance by Yan Gomes may have been indicative of the natural funk of a player just demoted from...
The Cleveland Indians have recalled left handed pitcher Scott Barnes from Triple-A Columbus to help fill the bullpen with a fresh arm for today’s double-header. He isn’t expected to stick around after the set of games. At least he gets a nice bonus on his paycheck and perhaps just enough to treat his boys to a few brews at the bar.

The Cleveland Indians have placed catcher Lou Marson on the 15-day disabled list due to inflamation of his right shoulder. He was already placed on the disabled list a few weeks back with a strained neck. For the time being, the Indians have called up Yan Gomes to replace Marson on the active roster. There is no time table set for Marson’s return.

Will the Indians ever play baseball again?
It certainly feels like the Tribe has been in Mother Nature’s doghouse wherever they go this season as they now have four postponements and four games to make up. Fortunately, the team will still be able to get in all four games this weekend as they’ll make up Friday’s series opener on Sunday in a day-night doubleheader.
LeVon Washington (CF, Lake County Captains): 5-for-5, 3 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI.
This was only Washington’s fourth game of the 2013 season as he missed 18 games after pulling his hamstring in the Captains’ home opener on April 4. Judging by this contest, it appears as if Washington is fully healthy and also hopefully ready to make up for lost time. Washington was essentially the Captains’...
FREDERICK- A back-and forth-battle got away from the Carolina Mudcats, who lost to the Frederick Keys 5-4 Saturday.
Mudcats closer Jeff Johnson surrendered a one-out walk and a two-out double in the bottom of the ninth inning. With runners on second and third, Johnson gave up a two-out two RBI walk-off single. Those were the first runs surrendered by Johnson this year, and this...
In his latest blog post, ESPN’s Buster Olney speculates as to a number of young players that could become part of the trade market. Among the names on the list are Philadelphia’s Chase Utley, New York’s John Buck, Chicago’s Matt Garza and Cleveland’s Chris Perez-
“Chris Perez | RHP, Cleveland Indians. He’s making $7.3 million this season, and the Indians were open to...
Player of the Game: Ervin Santana (7 Inn. 6 hits 0 ER 0 BB / 5 SO)
They say pitching is the key to winning in baseball. But there also is another key saying that should go along with that: you can’t win if you can’t score. This was exactly the case again for the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night as they fell to the first place Kansas City Royals, 3-2.
Player of the Game
Mike Aviles set a new career high with 5 RBI and generally lead the offense in their best game since scoring 19 against Houston more than a week ago (4/20). The RBI came mostly from a three run home run, but also during a fielder's choice in the first and a sacrifice fly in the seventh. The award is Aviles' third of the season, each at a different position...
FREDERICK, MD – Jordan Cooper tossed his best outing of the season as the Carolina Mudcats dominated the Frederick Keys 10-2 at Harry Grove Stadium on Friday night. The win is Carolina’s fourth in five games, and improves their record to 10-11. The Keys fall to an equal record, and under .500 for the first time this season.
Cooper (1-2) scored his first win by blanking...
