Cold Weather Fails to Stop Captains from Getting Off to a Hot Start

April 10, 2018 |

The Lake County Captains kicked off the 2018 Class-A season in the chilly weather of northeast Ohio last Thursday night, hosting some big names in the Cleveland Indians’ farm system and the Fort Wayne TinCaps.

The Captains made the opener a thriller, needing a three-run ninth inning after being held to just a hit through the first eight innings, getting a game-winning walk-off single from Jorma Rodriguez. Friday’s game was suspended by snow in the fourth inning and picked up over the weekend from Fort Wayne, where the Captains won Saturday’s and Sunday’s games, in addition to the completion of the suspended game, to start the year 4-0. In three of those four games against the TinCaps, the Captains incredibly drew eight walks.

Lake County dropped game one of four in Dayton on the second leg of their road trip by a tough 3-2 final. Read More

Indians’ Minor Leaguers on the Move this Winter

December 26, 2017 |

While plenty of focus has been given to the big name free agents departing the Cleveland Indians organization this offseason, there has been plenty of movement down on the farm for the club’s minor league free agent class.

The names are nowhere near as big as Carlos Santana, Bryan Shaw, and Joe Smith, who have all signed lucrative contracts in Philadelphia, Colorado, and Houston, respectively, nor are they as big as Jay Bruce, who is still testing the free agent waters while waiting for the right deal, but the moves cut into some of the existing depth in the team’s minor league system.

Baltimore claimed a pair of former Indians pitchers when they added right-hander Perci Garner and left-hander Luis Lugo to minor league deals. Read More
