RubberDucks clubhouse manager Shad Gross is probably thinking of replacing the placards that adorn the team’s individual lockers with removable “Hello My Name is” stickers.

That’s the season it has been for the Ducks, who entered their 99th game in the Eastern League on Saturday with an incredible 133 transactions.

That’s more than a move a day for a squad not just trying to develop major-league talent, but one trying to stay in the hunt in the Western Division.

“It’s just part of it,” RubberDucks pitching coach Tony Arnold said. “Pieces come and pieces go. When you get new pieces, it’s our job to acclimate them into what’s going on at any given level. Who you have is who you’re working with and you make it work.”

While that might sound matter of fact, this season’s team has been a revolving door in terms of player movement.

It’s not that players don’t pan out and leave the game as much as it is a need at the higher levels. Add to that promotions, and the influx of new players can be a challenge.

The Indians also made things interesting with Mike Clevinger, Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Jefry Rodriguez, Cody Anderson and Dan Otero, who pitched Saturday, put on the injured list. Tyler Naquin, Jason Kipnis, Francisco Lindor also spent time on the IL.

While all may not have rehabilitated in Akron, the ripple down affected every club.

“Our job is to take it one day at a time and provide the players with the resources to maximize their potential,” Ducks manager Rouglas Odor said. “They did it in such a short time that it’s exciting to see them get to the next level.

“It’s a huge responsibility because we knew we had to develop players because the big-league club was counting on us. It was nice to see them give the opportunity to minor-league players. Not just an opportunity, but to see them have success there.”

Add to that, players like Daniel Johnson (39 games), James Karinchak (10), Zach Plesac (6) and Aaron Civale (5), who spent just a handful of games with the club, and it can be difficult to keep the fluidity moving.

“You’re not trying to keep somebody here so they can have unbelievable numbers,” Arnold said. “As a coach, you have to have vision on what the major-league club needs. If you’re in A ball and you have a guy that might go up or you have a guaranteed guy here or at the Triple A level, you have to understand that in that short period of time, you might have to do things quicker so that they are prepared.”

What happens with players like the aforementioned quartet is an expedited learning curve at Double A as coaches make sure the players all have the tools they need to succeed at the next level.

“It’s awesome because our goal as a staff is to get them here and get them up as fast as we can,” Ducks hitting coach Justin Toole said. “While personally you want kids to be here longer because they’re good players, it’s rewarding as a staff to get guys moving up because you know you’re helping them chase their dreams, while also impacting the organization.”

That has players amped to show the organization what they have as the current youth movement is in full force.

“It’s really exciting for us in Akron and Columbus to see some of the guys that we’ve played with get an opportunity in the big leagues and be able to produce,” RubberDucks first baseball Connor Marabell said. “It shows how good our player development is and that they can trust us up there.”
