Minor Notes:

Consistentcy From Constanza: Outfielder Jose Constanza is making  strides at Class-AAA Columbus. Not only can Constanza get on base, currently batting .303 with 92 hits, seven doubles and four triples, but he leads the International League with 28 stolen bases. Voted to the league’s All-Star team this season, Constanza is continuing to get noticed with his consistent at bats, and is known for his hitting streaks. Signed by the Tribe in 2003 as an undrafted free agent, Constanza is sure to be one of the Clippers players seeing more playing time after the recent abundance of promotions to the Indians.

Damaso Espino Joins Cousin in Columbus: Just two days after right-handed pitcher Paolo Espino was promoted to AAA Columbus, his cousin, catcher Damaso Espino has joined him. The pair has played alongside each other since childhood, and before making their way to the Indians organization, they played in the 2006 World Baseball Classic together for Team Panama. Although Espino’s numbers with AA Akron this season have been pretty average (.250 BA with 49 hits, four doubles, two homeruns and 20 RBI), the club felt it was the right time to make the move to Columbus after promoting catcher Lou Marson to the Majors in lieu of Carlos Santanas season-ending injury. They will focus on developing Espino as a better hitter, as they have been very impressed with his defensive skills behind the plate.

Akron Aeros' Jordan Henry

Henry’s Hot Streak: Since being promoted to the Aeros in June, centerfielder Jordan Henry has been turning some heads at AA Akron. Henry has batted .368 (14-for-38) in his last ten games, including a team-leading eight stolen bases, a double and a triple. He was named the Aeros Player Of The Week on August 2nd, after hitting two doubles against the Bowie Baysox on July 27th, and scoring eight runs in the three game series against Reading that week. In his 162 at-bats for Advanced Class A Kinston, Henry was batted .333 with 54 hits, 13 RBI and 14 stolen bases. The Indians are excited about Henrys talent and abilities, excelling quickly in the short time he has been a part of the club – which is just over a year, after being drafted in The 2009 Amateur Player Draft out of the University Of Mississippi.
