The Cleveland Indians are looking to make a postseason push, and the key to any successful baseball organization is a solid farm system that develops prospects in hopes of them making an impact with the big league club.

Carter Hawkins, Cleveland Indians Director of Player Development joined myself and Brad Russell live from Progressive Field Tuesday to talk about the Indians prospects coming up as well as the day-to-day operations of the player development staff.

 "It's been busy from a logistical standpoint, just making sure our rosters are filled at the minor league level, but it's been worth it,  we've been doing well with our player development making sure our guys are prepared and ready to help out at the major league level."

As the Indians continue to make that postseason push, they will be without Abraham Almonte for the postseason,  so they are going to have to look within their development system to fill that gap.

With top prospects Bradley Zimmer and Clint Frazier being sent to AAA Columbus, things are looking solid for the Indians farm system.

Carter Hawkins, Director of Player Development for the Indians joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about the youngsters in the system, making sure they're on schedule with their development.

 "It's been a cool story for both of them, very similar in a lot of ways, very different in a lot of ways," Hawkins said.

"Both of those guys are moving relatively quickly for their age, relative to other players, and we feel like they're both in the right place developmentally to improve."
