Indians place Jason Kipnis on 15-day DL

The Indians made a few roster moves Monday evening, most notably placing All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list with soreness in his right shoulder. While the shoulder has been bothering him off and on throughout the season, rumors that Kipnis may spend some time on the DL started circulating during the team’s current West Coast swing. After he spent...

After Trade Deadline, Indians Will Have to Battle to Stay in Hunt

The Non-waiver Trade Deadline has come and gone, and though many teams throughout the league have made assertive moves to re-tool their team, the Indians look as though they have mailed it in for the 2015 campaign. Chris Antonetti, the Indians General Manager, was active and acted to the needs of other contenders in the league, while keeping his eye on the future. Outfielder and...

Trades Create Opportunity for Several Clippers

Almonte Assigned to Columbus There’s a new face in Columbus. The Indians traded Marc Rzepczynski to San Diego minutes before the Friday 4pm deadline for versatile, switch-hitting outfielder Abraham Almonte and immediately assigned him Columbus. The 26-year-old split the season between San Diego and Triple-A El Paso. In 31 games with the Padres, Almonte hit .204 (11-54) with four...

Oakland Walks Off an Extra Inning Winner; Athletics 2, Indians 1

The Indians split a four-game series with Oakland after dropping the finale, 2-1, in extra innings on Sunday. The Tribe reached A’s All-Star Sonny Gray for a run in the first on Jerry Sands’ sac fly, but the A’s tied it in the fifth as Trevor Bauer allowed a single by Billy Burns. Cleveland had a chance in the top of the 10th, putting two men aboard with one out, but Fernando...

Cleveland Indians: Proposed approach to fixing the roster

The Cleveland Indians are effectively out of the playoff race in 2015, so, yet again, it’s time to look forward to next year. The Indians have vastly underperformed this season and were mild sellers at the trade deadline, but they are by no means a rebuilding club. They don’t need to blow things up yet, and they are a team that is very capable of competing next season. But there...

Salazar responds to Bauer's Twitter challenge

After Trevor Bauer, Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco combined to throw three consecutive complete games for the Indians through July 28-30, next up was Danny Salazar. So, Trevor Bauer took to Twitter to playfully call out his teammate to keep the complete game streak going on Friday vs. the Oakland Athletics.   Although Danny Salazar did not pitch a complete game he did pitch an...

More on Baseball’s Integration, the Tribe’s Larry Doby and Beyond

Here and elsewhere, Indians outfielder and race pioneer Larry Doby was celebrated. A deserving man who graces Cooperstown and who is now honored by a statue at Progressive Field, Doby nevertheless appears likely to remain an underrated figure. Cleveland, at least, has finally begun to appreciate Doby’s experience in baseball. But when the Indians signed him, how was the process...

Indians trade Marc Rzepczynski to San Diego for Abraham Almonte

The Cleveland Indians had one last trade to sneak in just ahead of the 2015 MLB trade deadline. They traded left-handed reliever Marc “Scrabble” Rzepczynski to the San Diego Padres in exchange for 26 year old Abraham Almonte (ESPN’s Keith Law was the first to report though he misspelled Rzepczynski in his rush). Scrabble was seemingly struggling overall this season pitching...

Is Brandon Moss for Rob Kaminsky the worst John Mozeliak trade ever?

I’m not going to sugar coat this at all. This is quite possibly the worst trade in John Mozeliak’s history with the Cardinals. First of all, Mo…stop trading with Chris Antonetti. He’s destroyed you every time. Justin Masterson was crap when you got him. Mark DeRosa was crap when you got him. Jake Westbrook was middling at best when you got him. At least you made the Indians...

Should The Indians Trade A Starting Pitcher?

With the July 31st trade deadline just a day away, the Indians find themselves in an interesting position, one they likely did not expect to be in when the season began. It’s no secret that the strength of the Indians roster is the starting rotation. The fearsome foursome of Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, and Danny Salazar is one of the most talented rotations in...

Former Sox OF Brandon Moss Traded To Cards

(Getty Images)The wheeling and dealing continues. Former Red Sox outfielder Brandon Moss has been traded by the Cleveland Indians to the St. Louis Cardinals. Moss' left-handed power bat will clearly help the RedBirds in their quest to get back to the World Series. In his two years in Carmine Hose, Moss hit .291 in just 49 games—with 2 HRs and 12 RBIs. He was dealt (along with Craig...

The Indians Columbus Storage Facility

Every Major League baseball team’s AAA farm club is there to serve two purposes. Primarily, it is the final step for prospects before they hit the Major Leagues. It is the separator for borderline prospects as many players on AAA rosters have at least some Major League experience. The secondary reason is to store these players with Major League experience. Unlike the middle and...

Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Bourn steals show

Cleveland Indians’ outfielder, Michael Bourn, has struggled in all facets of his game this year. Entering the 2015 season, Bourn had a career .269 batting average (.331 on-base percentage) and 309 stolen bases. However, Bourn had a down year in 2014, hitting .257 (.314 OBP), with just 10 stolen bases on the year. This year has been even worse for Bourn, going into Tuesday’s game...

Cleveland Indians trade rumors: Carlos Carrasco edition

For a majority of the 2015 MLB season, it wasn’t known what position the Cleveland Indians would take at the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. The Tribe hung around in the AL Central and wild card standings through the first three and a half months of the season, never close enough to be declared buyers but never far enough to be seen as definite sellers. But then, last week...

Indians won't trade Aviles due to daughter's leukemia battle

The Cleveland Indians aren’t out of the playoff race quite yet, but there’s one player who definitely isn’t for sale ahead of the Major League Baseball trade deadline. At 45-48, the Indians certainly aren’t a lock for the postseason. However, the club is 4 1/2 games out of an American League wild card spot and could have a fighting chance with a few good moves. But even...
