Around the Farm: August 15
Connor Graham – RP, Akron: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 K.
Graham looks to have found a permanent home in the bullpen, a move that occurred in May with no looking back. Since arriving in the bullpen he has really began to settle in, and in his last 11 appearances is now 1-0 with a 1.04 ERA and in 17.1 innings has allowed 11 hits, 4 walks and has 19 strikeouts.

Game Recap 8/15: Clippers, Aeros Complete Sweeps
Clippers get to Harang early, sweep Bats
After a pair of losses in Columbus, the Louisville Bats turned to a Major League ace on a rehab assignment looking to turn their fortunes around, but Aaron Harang (0-1) couldn't stop the Clippers' recent momentum and Columbus swept the Bats out of town, 7-3.

Entering week 19, Kinston felt the wrath of the Lynchburg Hillcats. For those counting at home, the Hillcats are the last place team in the Northern Division of the Carolina league. Obviously, someone forgot to tell the Hillcats, as they took three of four from the K-Tribe, and seemingly put to rest any chance of a playoff appearance for the Indians. When you lose to arguable the worst team in the...

Game Recap 8/13: Clippers Strike A Cord
Columbus opens key series with 12-4 win
The Columbus Clippers decided that one day out of first place was enough, as they opened a huge weekend series against the Louisville Bats with a 12-4 victory Friday night at Huntington Park.

Jason Kipnis-2B, Akron: 3-5, 3B, RBI, R, K
In my eyes at least, Kipnis has passed Lonnie Chisenhall on the Indians prospect ranking list. Not so much because Chisenhall has struggled, but...

Bullpen Is Now Hagadone's Future
The young relief corps the Cleveland Indians have put together in the upper minors is pretty impressive, which up until this year developing relievers had been one of the biggest Achilles heels for the organization. That unit just got even stronger recently with the announcement that left-handed pitcher Nick Hagadone will be making the permanent transition from a starter to a reliever.
