Found April 23, 2013 on Indians Baseball Insider:
We settle in with the first Tuesday edition of Minor Happenings of the season today, and with that comes a pretty large update on several players in the system. Tony breaks down the encouraging start to the season by lefty T.J. House, how he has looked, what he needs to work on, and what the rest of the season may hold for him. In addition to that I have several comments and insight from the front office on players such as Jerrud Sabourin, Joey Wendle, Shawn Morimando, Bryson Myles, Rob Whitenack and more as well as a litany of injury updates on players such as LeVon Washington, Mason Radeke, Alex Monsalve, and more.

Around The Farm: April 23, 2013

Tyler Naquin (Carolina, CF) - 3-5, 2 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI - Naquin's been strong all season, but tonight he took it to another level as he picked up his second and third doubles of the season as well as his 9th and 10th RBI. Naquin is now batting .303.  While his OBP (.370) and tendency to strike out rather than walk (19 Ks to only 5 BBs) are a little worrisome, it is good to remember...

Tony Wolters, Catching Convert

Rarely do players successfully transition to more difficult positions, but the Cleveland Indians believe second base prospect Tony Wolters can be the next infielder to be successful converted into a catcher.

4/24 Recap: Indians 2 - White Sox 3

Roster Update: The did something very dumb today as they brought back Lou Marson from the DL in exchange for Yan Gomes, who went back to Columbus.

Indians 3, White Sox 2: Where there’s a Bro, there’s a Way

8:01 PM – I just learned that today is Terry Francona’s birthday. Hours before, I heard that it’s also Jack Nicholson’s birthday. What a small world!  I can only imagine the fun those two might have at a birthday party together, what with all of the chewing tobacco and nubile feminine attention.  Sounds like a good time.  You know what else sounds like a good time?  Live...

They had just been swept by the Boston Red Sox and were essentially dominated for three games on their home field. Thursday night’s loss was a microcosm of the series; it was one missed offensive opportunity after another.
