Smoke Signals - Farm Report 2.6: Burning Rubber(Ducks)

The RubberDucks have been on a hot streak this week due in no small part to their pitching staff, led by ace Julian Merryweather. Jake and Corey discuss all things Akron as well as provide a first-hand account of the Clippers recent trip to Buffalo in a new episode of the Farm Report.

"Farm Report" is a weekly prospect analysis podcast hosted by Jake Dungan and Corey Crisan as they discuss all the latest news and notes regarding the Indians' farm system.

The Indians have built up a nice, deep crop of starting pitching prospects throughout their farm system. While some names are more prominent than others, all have their own upside and have had their moments in their professional careers. Julian Merryweather is one of the pitchers who is currently riding a hot streak. The question is how much has he improved his standing on the Indians' depth chart, if at all? Jake and Corey examine the right-hander's recent dominance as well as the red-hot RubberDucks, the curious case of Dorssys Paulino and Corey's trip to Buffalo to see the Clippers.

Topics discussed:

-  Corey's recap of Sunday's Clippers game in Buffalo.

-  Is Julian Merryweather a dark horse top pitching prospect?

-  RubberDucks on a roll.

-  Where is Dorssys Paulino in his development and prospect standing with the Indians?

-  Reveal the Player of the Week.

-  Make predictions for next week's Player of the Week.
