2013 MLB Draft: Frazier thoughts and more
The Indians selected prep outfielder Clint Frazier with their first pick last night, and it is a pick that Tony is very excited about. Unlike the selection of Tyler Naquin last season who many felt was a reach and he did not have much prospect sizzle, Frazier has all the glitz and sex appeal people look for in a first round pick. In his Day 1 recap, Tony shares his thoughts on the pick, provides commentary from Brad Grant on the pick, and even provides Frazier’s reaction to the selection as well. Also, with the help of Jeff Ellis he previews Day 2 with the top 10 players to keep an eye on at the start of round three where the Indians have the fifth overall pick.

Orbiting Cleveland: Jimenez's resurgence continues
The Cleveland Indians begin a three-game series tonight against the Detroit Tigers. While it's only June, the series could prove pivotal as the Indians trail the Tigers by 2 1/2 games and have now gone 4-12 in their last 16 games. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez takes the mound for the Tribe tonight in what could be the closest thing to a must-win series that a team can have in June. Jimenez has been impressive as of late, but can that continue tonight? And will it continue over the course of the season? Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he tackles that question in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Second Thoughts: An ode to the underrated Joe Smith
On a day when everyone will be talking about the Indians’ new 18-year-old wunderkind Walt “Clint” Frazier, I elected to set aside this edition of Second Thoughts as a tribute to one of the least discussed—and yet most reliable—members of the current Tribe roster. For five years now, this Ohio native has done his job here in Cleveland with escalating efficiency. Join Andrew Clayman as he gives some day-off Second Thoughts on the combination of reasons both rational and perplexing as to why Joe Smith is consistently neglected.

Mudcats Swamped in Wilmington
For the second straight night, the Wilmington Blue Rocks surged ahead by five, only to hold on for a 6-4 win against the Carolina Mudcats. Carolina (20-39) finished with two wins in their seven-game road trip. Cody Anderson (5-3) tossed his shortest outing of the year for the Mudcats, allowing four runs on six hits in only three innings of work. It was the first time in 12 starts that the right-hander failed to make it through five.

Around The Farm: June 6, 2013
On a night where all the attention is on the MLB draft and new addition to the Cleveland organization Clint Frazier, there was still plenty of action throughout the minor leagues. Not all was good -- Carlos Carrasco was scratched from his start -- but some, like Akron finishing a sweep, was. The focus from Thursday is on an IBI favorite, however, who simply catches our collective attention. To find out who he is and all you need to know from Thursday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Crushers end losing streak, beat Beach Bums 5-2
Crushers manager Jeff Isom got exactly what he asked for following the team’s fourth consecutive loss on Wednesday night. For his team to get back to winning, he said they needed their starting pitcher to keep them in the game and their offense to score first. The team answered the call on Thursday, beating Traverse City 5-2 to improve to 7-11. Traverse City falls to 10-8 with the loss.

Aeros sweep Fisher Cats with 7-2 win
On a cloudy, dreary night in Akron, and after a thirty-minute rain delay, the Aeros took on the Fisher Cats, getting the brooms out to sweep New Hampshire out of town with a 7-2 win. Aeros starter Toru Murata got into trouble right away when Fisher Cats second baseman Ryan Schimpf lined a single to right field with one out in the inning. Shortstop Kevin Nolan took no time at all to put the Fisher Cats on the board, drilling the second Murata offering he saw deep into the Aeros bullpen in right field. Down 2-0, Murata settled in after that.

2013 MLB Draft: Mock Draft 3.0 - Final Edition
It is draft day and IBI draft guru Jeff Ellis has his final mock, this time going out through the first 111 picks! He not only predicts who the Indians select at #5 overall, but who they take in the third and fourth round as well. As with any mock, these are more for just a guideline on where players may be picked and not necessarily by who, but Jeff has done the research and knows the draft better than anyone not affiliated with an MLB team. Take a look and enjoy!
