Cleveland minor league recap for May 10, 2021

On a soggy Sunday, it wasn’t just Cleveland that got rained out, but two Cleveland minor league affiliates as well. The two remaining teams were High-A and Low-A, which both featured some very intriguing arms starting their games.

Here’s the action from Around the Corner last night.

I think they’re actually in great shape, you guys

If you’ve paid attention to the Mets over the last several weeks, you may recall some unusual incidents that don’t seem to make any sense on their own.

Exhibit 1 - Donnie “Diesel” Stevenson, Approach Coach

After a game-winning hit, Mets first baseman Pete Alonso lauded a mysterious figure as key to his success.

The Mets had a hitters’ meeting prior to yesterday’s game and when speaking to...

Cleveland minor league recap for May 9, 2021

Cleveland affiliates stayed hot on Saturday, going 3-1 on the night with two of them (Akron and Lynchburg) remaining undefeated at 5-0 each.

Here’s the action from Around the Corner last night.

Columbus Clippers 6, Louisville Bats 3

Box Score · Clippers improve to 4-1

The Clippers fell behind early as Eli Morgan was ineffective in his first start of the season, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks in just 3.1 innings. Considering...

Corner Chronicles: May 2, 2021 - May 8, 2021

Here’s what happened this week in Cleveland baseball

Welcome to the Corner Chronicles — a weekly dive into what happened this week in Cleveland baseball, from the deep dingers to the decisions that shape the team.

From third in the AL Central to leading the division, to sweeping the Royals, to being no-hit by Wade Miley, to scoring nine runs on a chilly Saturday afternoon ... what a week for Cleveland baseball.

Cleveland makes adjustments, slugs changeups, mashes Reds

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, they did the unthinkable

Forget the score for a second (it was 9-2, not bragging, but y’know), and just focus on these numbers: Cleveland batters saw 24 changeups from Luis Castillo — a pitcher who, admittedly, is off to a slow start but typically features some of the best off-speed stuff in baseball. Of the 17 times they swung at those changeups, seven were put into play, nine were fouled off, and just one was swung on and missed.

For a team that has...

Cleveland no-hit by Wade Miley. Seriously.

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

One of the worst lineups in baseball strikes again

For the second time this season, Cleveland failed to muster even a single hit through nine innings of baseball. Wade Miley — I repeat, WADE MILEY — pitched a no-hitter Friday night in a 3-0 win to secure a share of the Ohio Cup for the Cincinnati Reds.

Cleveland’s lineup simply could not put a barrel to the ball against Wade Miley, who had them flailing at the plate and making weak contact with a combination...

He’s got the stuff

Relief pitchers are a special kind of fun.

Time and again, a good one will emerge seemingly from nowhere and just be unhittable. Yes, you could look back to their minor league records and make conclusions you saw this coming way after the fact, but how many pitchers struggle in that transition to the bigs? Most?

Such is the case with Nick Sandlin. We’ve seen him for 4.1 innings. He’s thrown 56 pitches. And yet, I am immediately...

The Ohio Cup is up for grabs in this three-game series

Since interleague play began in 1997, the coveted Ohio Cup has resided in Cleveland 11 times, Cincinnati six times, and in a tie purgatory seven times. After dropping two of three to the Reds last month, Cleveland will need to sweep this weekend’s series against the Reds if they want to bring home the cup for lucky number 12.

They’re in a great position to do it, having won their last five games with...
