The good news going into the Cleveland Indians’ fourth series of 2015 was that they weren’t scheduled to face any left-handed starters. The bad news is that it didn’t seem to matter. They still couldn’t hit. Over the three games in Minneapolis, the Twins started Mike Pelfrey, Phil Hughes, and Trevor May, all righties. They
With Carlos Carrasco (somehow) only needing an extra day of rest before his next start following a line drive striking him in his face Tuesday night, the Cleveland Indians had to make a decision on how to handle the mound on Saturday for Game 2 in Minnesota. In turn, they have recalled starting pitcher Danny Salazar
The Cleveland Indians have optioned pitcher Danny Salazar to Class AAA Columbus. This means Zach McAllister, T.J. House and Josh Tomlin will fight for the final two rotations spots for the Indians. The team has their first three rotation spots settled with Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer, so these final two spots will need to be decided
We have estimated in the past that only about ten percent of what we gather in Spring Training is actually useful. As such, I have been taking accounts of what I have witnessed during Spring Training. I will write what I believe, you can determine what truly matters, and I will hope to surpass the
Grantland’s Jonah Keri is a big fan of the Cleveland Indians this season, so much so that he recently placed them among the top five teams in baseball. With a Cy Young candidate for an ace, an MVP candidate in left field and one of the best catchers in the game, this makes sense. But
Update: WEWS NewsChannel 5 was first to report that no charges will be filed against Danny Salazar. #BreakingNews: No charges will be filed against @Indians pitcher Danny Salazar in accusations of sexual assault, according to @CLEpolice — WEWS NewsChannel5 (@WEWS) February 4, 2015 Police just told me City Prosecutor has seen evidence & has decided
Buster Olney of ESPN is ranking MLB starting rotations as we get closer and closer to pitchers and catchers reporting. The Cleveland Indians staff was really strong in the second half of last season, obviously led by eventual Cy Young winner Corey Kluber. That means that the Tribe’s rotation is decent no matter what, but
The Royals are scoring runs and playing defense; the Indians are not.
Thank you, Jose Ramirez. You too, video replay.
The Cleveland Indians now sit four games back of the second AL Wild Card spot.
Danny Salazar gives the Indians a much-needed lift against the Tigers. We live-blogged it.
September is just about here. Time is running short for our Wahoos, but they refuse to give into the fight. (Eric Wedge would be so proud.) With their schedule in Soft Mode, the Tribe had to take advantage of what was in front of them. They started their nine-game stretch with three of the AL’s
This weekend series was once again another example of what this 2014 Cleveland Indians team is all about. The AL East leading Baltimore Orioles came to town with the biggest margin of any division top dog in baseball. Their offense is beastly, with power up and down the lineup. So naturally the story of the
The Battle of Ohio packed up and headed from Cleveland to Cincinnati last night. The Reds carried over their “big homers from non-homer hitters” act, and the Indians were silent with the bats until the eighth inning when it was far too late. When it looked like the Indians might just dip their toes into
Do I say the same thing every three weeks or so? Just when you think you are out, this team sucks you right back in. Terry Francona’s Cleveland Indians are not the sexiest group, nor are they the most talented. Their starting pitching is essentially Corey Kluber, hoping for the best with two youngsters, then
The Indians couldn’t have picked a worse week to wet themselves. I’ve said this before and I will say it again: The only consistent thing about this team is their inconsistency. Just when you want to believe after they take three of four in Detroit, they come out and lose two of three to the
It seems longer ago, but all it took was a mid-July afternoon on the corner of Carnegie and Ontario. I sat next to TD, roughly thirty yards from the pitchers mound housed within Progressive Field, as Danny Salazar made his Major League debut. I had planned to only stay for a few innings, spending what
47-47. .500. The middle. Average. Not great, but not bad. This is what our Cleveland Indians are as we sit here at the All-Star break. Heading into the season, Terry Francona’s group had to deal with something that was not on the docket a year before; heightened expectations. Coming off of a 92-win, Wild Card
Danny Salazar has been placed on the seven day DL with a triceps strain. Salazar was sent down to Columbus on May 16th. He was 1-4 in eight starts for the Indians this season with an ERA of 5.53. He pitched more than five innings only three times in those eight starts. So far the
Trevor Bauer finally looks like he’s getting his pro career on track and living up to the expectations that come with being the No. 3 overall draft pick. Ranked as the ninth best prospect by Baseball America after the 2011 season, Bauer sank to 83rd after a disappointing 2013 campaign in which the re-tooling of
