Indians trade Sellers to Pirates

The Indians made a move to their 40-man roster on Saturday, trading infielder Justin Sellers to the Pirates for cash considerations. With the move, the 40-man roster stands at 38. Sellers was a longshot to make the club the upcoming season with Jason Kipnis at second and Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor vying for shortstop. The Indians would also have depth at second should they...

Why Michael Brantley Should Win the MVP

We already covered which players could be up for significant post-season awards this year, but two of those players deserve some extra consideration, Michael Brantley and Corey Kluber. Brantley should be a candidate for an outfield Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, the AL MVP and Hank Aaron Award. This will just focus on his attempt for the American League MVP, an award he has little chance...

Picking up Aviles’ option goes beyond the numbers

Strictly based on the numbers, Cleveland exercising utility man Mike Aviles’ $3.5 million option for 2015 makes no sense. Going beyond the surface numbers, however, shows why the move is defensible. No one will ever confuse Aviles with an impact player. His offense over the past three seasons has been remarkably consistent, with the 33-year-old posting the following lines: 2012...

Indians Trade Winds May Become Gusty this Winter

After three weeks of reflection on the Cleveland Indians and their disappointing 2014 season, it’s time to move on. While the World Series enters Game 3 this evening, the Tribe is just about a week away from kicking off their offseason. And while the defense was horrendous, Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn underachieved for the second straight season and the acquisition of John Axford...

Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes finalists for Gold Glove Award

How much do advanced analytics or team-wide defensive struggles factor in to Gold Glove nominations? Not as much as one would think as Cleveland Indians left fielder Michael Brantley and catcher Yan Gomes have been named as finalists for the 2014 award at their respective positions. The team’s press release touts Gomes has having only committed three errors in his final 55 games...

2014 Indians winter ball assignments

Here is a current listing of players from the Indians’ organization participating in winter ball this offseason. This is not a complete list as it will undoubtedly change over the course of winter ball as players who started the season finish play in mid-November and new players come on board after that. Also, once the World Series is over and the MLB offseason officially gets...

Indians ask fans about Wahoo, popular players in survey

It’s that time of year again and the Cleveland Indians want to know what their fans and season ticket holders think. Not a lot of surprising questions, per usual. The Indians once again asked about all their various uniforms and Chief Wahoo himself. They also asked for a ranking of the top five Cleveland Indians, which makes sense. One slight wrinkle though: They included manager...

Should the Indians Extend Lonnie Chisenhall?

Of the many roster decisions the Indians will have to make this off-season, perhaps the player with the biggest range of possibilities is Lonnie Chisenhall. Going into 2014, Chisenhall was entering his fourth Major League season with a career line of .244/.284/.411 and just 23 home runs and 74 RBI, but he added another 13 homers and 59 RBI with a line of .280/.343/.427. This was...

Should the Indians Exercise Aviles’ Option?

The Cleveland Indians will have a few hard decisions to make, regarding personnel and one of the first of these should involve Mike Aviles. Unlike all but one other member of the final 40 man roster for the Indians, Aviles is not officially under contract for the 2015 season. Rather, the super utility man has a single option year left from his contract that he signed shortly after...
