Opinion: Six moves that reshaped Cleveland baseball in 2013 (1.29.13)

The Cleveland Indians finished with the second-worst record in the American League last year, leading to the firing of manager Manny Acta and a general sense of indifference from fans heading into the offseason. The team was bad, and more importantly, it was hard to see things getting better any time soon.

Yet, almost four months later, there is optimism in Cleveland for the 2013 season. This offseason, general manager Chris Antonetti made six key moves that reshaped the team and fired up the fanbase. Read More…

IBI Digest: 1/20/13-1/26/13 (1.26.13)

The Top 60 prospect countdown continued over the past week, with Tony has been releasing one report per day. The detail in the reports is tremendous and well-worth the read. If you want to know about all about Cleveland minor leaguers, this is where to go.

Here are all of the pieces that went up on IBI over the past week: Read More…

Around The Farm: January 24, 2013 (1.25.13)

Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland prospects throughout the system. This is a special fall and winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in the Arizona Fall League (AFL) and the Caribbean Leagues. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.

Note that the Puerto Rican Winter League and Dominican Winter League were off last night. Here is the rundown of what Cleveland players in fall and winter ball did yesterday:

Venezuelan Winter League

  • Ezequiel Carrera (LF): 1-for-3. Carrera’s team dropped their playoff game last night, as Navegantes del Magallanes could not get a run across all game. A 1-for-3 night from Carrera is not bad, but it is symptomatic of the lack of power in his game (.084 ISO). Speed is Carrera’s calling card, but being that deficient of pop in the Venezuelan League is still worrisome. Read More…

Around The Farm: January 17, 2013 (1.18.13)

Around the Farm (ATF) takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland prospects throughout the system. This is a special fall and winter ball version of ATF that recaps all the offseason action by Indians players in the Arizona Fall League (AFL) and the Caribbean Leagues. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.

Note the Dominican Winter League and Puerto Rican Winter League did not play last night. Here is the rundown of what Cleveland players in fall and winter ball did yesterday:

Venezuelan Winter League

  • Ezequiel Carrera (LF): 1-for-4, 1 SB. It was a largely uneventful night for Carrera, as he reached base once on a single and stole a base. The lack of power continues to be far from ideal (.092 ISO in winter ball), but that is simply who Carrera is; it would be foolish to get too worked up over it. He should still be a serviceable fourth outfielder in 2013. Read More…

  • Edward Paredes (RP): 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO. Paredes came into the game in the 5th inning with two-on and two-out in the 5th inning and proceeded to strike Jordany Valdespin out swinging. Not a bad night for Paredes. Read More…
