Nights like Clint Frazier had on Thursday have not come as frequently as we would like for the center fielder so far in 2014, but while Frazier is struggling a bit this year, putting up big stats this season is not the real goal. It is more important right now for Frazier to learn about the grind that is the minor league season, just like another top prospect a few years ago with. Join Jim Piascik as he explains Frazier's situation in more detail, breaks down Carlos Moncrief's recent surge, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

The Columbus Clippers didn't score until the fifth inning, but made every run count on their way to a 5-4 victory against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. The Clippers totaled just six hits, but used a four-run seventh inning to seal the deal after going down, 3-0, early in the game. The RailRiders rallied in the eighth to come back within one, but ultimately fell short.

The Indians Triple-A Columbus affiliate continued their up and down performance over the past week. The bullpen was strong for them and they continue to get good showings from Tyler Holt and others, though the starting pitching continues to be a problem for them. The IBI's Michael Rich recaps the week that was in his weekly notebook...

The WAR Room is back again, bringing you the 2014 advanced stats for every Cleveland minor leaguer. After looking at the pitchers last week, today we focus on the hitters. It is still early enough that there is some noise in the numbers, but at this point in the season, we are starting to see some interesting trends emerge. One of those trends is Akron outfielder Tyler Naquin continuing to hit in Double-A and how it is starting to look more sustainable. Join Jim Piascik as he takes you into The WAR Room.

Joey Terdoslavich’s two-run single in the bottom of the sixth was enough for the Gwinnett Braves (31-29) to escape with the win 3-2 in the final game against the Columbus Clippers (29-32) this season in a game that took just under three hours to complete at Coolray Field.

Thursday may have been the day the organization begins adding new players to the organization, but for all of the minor leaguers already in the system, it was just another day. Akron RubberDucks starter Cody Anderson pitched just like he has lately, which is good considering the turnaround the right-hander has undergone recently. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks down Anderson's rebound, Zach McAllister's rehab start, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

In today’s Minor Happenings the IBI's Tony Lastoria takes a look at the comeback that right-handed reliever Tyler Sturdevant is making, why he has had so much success this season and where he fits into the Indians’ Major League plans. He also looks at infielder Paul Hendrix’s outstanding month of May and All Star snub, how left-hander Luis Lugo is having an excellent season that many are not even aware he is having and how infielder Audy Ciriaco has been a man of many hats and been one of the Indians better minor league signings at Triple-A in some time.

You know it's a good night offensively on the farm when you average 10 runs per team. Columbus, Akron, and Carolina all went off at the plate Wednesday, scoring runs left and right on the way to victory. Leading the charge in Akron was a familiar face in second baseman Joey Wendle, as the infielder typically makes waves with his bat. Join Jim Piascik as he looks at Wendle's performance, breaks down Yhoxian Medina's effort in Carolina, and much more as he takes you Around the Farm.

Due von Schamann pitched five innings and gave up four runs in the win.

Columbus Clippers' manager Chris Tremie was tossed from the game in the fifth inning during his team's loss to the Louisville Bats. Tremie's players managed to score just one run off of their six hits in the game, while his pitching staff gave up eight hits. Columbus is five games below .500 as the June schedule gets under way.

If you’re looking for someone with a contagious attitude, look no further than outfielder Carlos Moncrief. The native Mississippian has a trademark grin that shows up in the outfield and in the batter’s box, and it’s pretty easy to see why. A slow starter in the past, the arrival of June is just in time to heat up his cold bat. The IBI's Grant Miller recently sat down with the Indians top prospect about how he is adjusting to Triple-A and what he is doing to adjust to the new level.

It is still early enough that there is some noise in the numbers, but at this point in the season, we are starting to see some interesting trends emerge. Among those trends is the success of Akron RubberDucks right-hander Joe Colon and Lake County Captains right-hander Robbie Aviles, both of whom are finding success with their sinkers. Join Jim Piascik as he breaks it all down in this week's edition of The WAR Room.
