4/20 Recap: Allen’s Bungles Blow Bauer’s Beauty

Player of the Game Adding seven more strike outs to his season total, Trevor Bauer has taken back the American League lead in K’s (26) from his teammate Corey Kluber and tied Clayton Kershaw for the Major League lead. Of course, he has been much more than that. Another shut out appearance (his only two runs allowed on the year came in his last start against Chicago) lowered his...

Indians' Kipnis has secret (smelly) weapon against catchers

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is a true competitor. And sometimes that means doing whatever it takes for him and his team to be successful -- even if it requires some extra effort from his bodily functions. What exactly do we mean by that? Well, let's just cut right to the cheese -- or chase. During a recent Twitter Q&A with fans, Kipnis admitted to getting a...

4/19 Recap: Twins Huff & Plouffe, Blow House Down

Player of the Game It took awhile, but Carlos Santana gave the Indians their first and only extra base hit in the ninth inning with his second home run of the season high off the seats in right field. While it did little to erase the six run deficit, no other Indians player was deserving of today’s honor as both the pitching and hitting were generally less than desirable. Milestone...

Revolving Indians Bullpen Door in Full Swing

Prior to Saturday’s game, the Cleveland Indians made yet another transaction that directly affected their bullpen, as reliever Austin Adams was optioned back to Columbus for the second time in the first ten games of the season to make room for starting pitcher Danny Salazar. The move paid off for the starting rotation, as Salazar struck out ten in one of the strongest outings he...

Danny Salazar Recalled from Triple-A

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 on the mound on Saturday, in Minnesota. In turn, they have recalled starting pitcher Danny Salazar and optioned right-handed reliever Austin Adams to Columbus. Salazar was one of...

A Totally Awesome Nick Swisher & Zach Walters Injury Update, Broskies

Going into Spring, it certainly didn’t look like the Indians would be waiting with baited breath for two batters who hit .208 and .170 in 2014 with strike out rates of once every 3.6 plate appearances and 2.9 PA respectively, but after a slow start to the offense and injuries to Yan Gomes and Michael Brantley, they are highly looking forward to the returns of Nick Swisher and Zach...

WFNY Stats & Info: Kluber and Bauer among the best at missing bats

One way to remove the chance of luck being a factor on the mound: Don’t allow batters to make contact with your pitches. Though most starting pitchers in baseball have amassed just two appearances, two of the best thus far—at least when it comes to missing the bats of would-be hitters—reside in Cleveland. Indians starters Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer are currently ranked second...

Carlos Carrasco shockingly OK after getting hit in face by line drive

On Tuesday night, a scary moment that you absolutely never want to see happened at Progressive Field in Cleveland – Indians starter Carlos Carrasco got hit in the face with a line drive. Thankfully, Carrasco got his glove up and slightly deflected the ball, leading to it hitting his cheek instead of his forehead or eye. Somehow, some way, Carrasco was OK after his trip to the...

Cleveland Indians Pitcher Carlos Carrasco Carted Off After Getting Nailed in the Face With a Line Drive

At one point in time most little boys want to be baseball pitchers. They want to be the guys that can throw a ball 100 miles per hour, make it curve, make it slide, make it break, and all sorts of things. They want to be the guy striking out the big hitter and winning the game. What discourages many from pursuing the dream is a desire not to end up like Cleveland Indians starting...

Indians sign top two starters for the long haul

Signing young, controllable players to long, cheap, guaranteed deals is what made the Cleveland Indians so good for so long in the 1990’s and they appear to be ready to recreate the magic in 2015. Last year, Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes (pictured above congratulating Carlos Carrasco after his first career complete game shut out) and Jason Kipnis were all brought on through 2018...

Indians sign Corey Kluber to five-year extension

Locking up young players through their arbitration years seems to be a trend around Major League Baseball. These deals keep players on manageable contracts for the foreseeable future while affording them the security of a long-term deal.
