Could Nick Swisher be on the move?

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Cleveland Indians are exploring a possible trade that would involve RF/1B Nick Swisher. The switch-hitter came off a terrible season, hitting .208, with 42 RBI, with 75 H. In the 2012 offseason, Swisher signed a 4yr/$56M contract which also includes a $14 Million option for a fifth year. The 33-year-old’s season was interrupted with...

Why a Nick Swisher trade will not actually benefit Cleveland

Nick Swisher is a big name going around the hot stove lately, with reports out that Cleveland could be looking to move the soon-to-be 34-year-old in a bad contract-for-bad contract swap. But while many seem ready to move on from Swisher, such a trade may be premature. There is no denying the 2014 version of Swisher was one of the worst regular players in baseball. Following a decent...

Farewell Brohio? Indians looking to trade Nick Swisher

It’s not basketball and he doesn’t work at Yahoo, but I’m going to go ahead and call Ken Rosenthal’s news drop on the Indians a Wojbomb anyway. He indicates that the Indians are exploring a wide range of options, including trading the king of Brohio, Nick Swisher. Sources: #Indians exploring wide range of options, including a trade of Swisher for another player with an inflated...

Indians prospect Giovany Urshela injures knee in winter ball

Giovany Urshela was one of the surprise prospects in the Cleveland Indians organization in 2014. The third baseman appeared to have an outside shot for a possible major league roster spot next season. But an injured knee in the Venezuelan Winter League could cast that in serious doubt. Urshela, a 23-year-old native of Colombia, injured his knee running the bases on Saturday. An MRI...

Today in Tribe History: November 18, 1998

Cleveland and Pittsburgh pair up on a swap, as the Indians send young outfielder Brian Giles to the Pirates for reliever Ricardo Rincon. Giles, who had spent parts of four seasons in the Tribe outfield, would explode onto the scene at Three Rivers Stadium, slugging four consecutive 30+ home run seasons, including a career-high 39 in 1999 while batting .315. He repeated his stellar...

Did Corey Kluber deserve the AL Cy Young?

Prior to 2007, only Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry won the AL Cy Young while wearing a Cleveland Indians uniform. This past Wednesday, Corey Kluber became the third pitcher for the Tribe in the last eight seasons to take home that honor. Lefties CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee won the award in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Just like with Lee in 2008, Kluber emerging to win the Cy Young was...

Is Now the Time to Extend Cody Allen?

Last offseason, the Cleveland Indians made it clear their intent to lock up the young talent on the team. The moves, which inked left fielder Michael Brantley, catcher Yan Gomes, and second baseman Jason Kipnis to contract extensions that bought out several years of salary arbitration, secured three pieces of the Tribe’s future at club-friendly rates. So far this offseason, the...

Seven Little Piggies: The Indians AFL Results

The short season of the Arizona Fall League has come to a close as it gets cold everywhere, even in the desert. This season, the Cleveland Indians changed affiliate clubs from the Surprise Saguaros to the Peoria Javelinas, although they kept the same home field in Surprise (the Spring Training home of the Rangers and Royals). Along with the Indians, the Javelinas were made of players...

Rule Five Risks & Rewards

The current Cleveland Indians 40 man roster sits at 35 men and while that may seem like extra room for free agents, at the moment, those spots should be reserved for the Rule 5 draft. On November 20th, all rosters in Major League Baseball need to be set for the draft which will occur during the Winter Meetings during the second week of December. While the Indians have generally been...

Cleveland’s Corey Kluber earns AL Cy Young

It was a tale of two 28-year-olds, but did you know who Corey Kluber was before the 2014 season began? Surely everyone knew his competition in Seattle, but unless you’re an Indians fan or follow baseball closely, perhaps not. Wednesday night the Birmingham native hopefully became a household name after capturing the 2014 American League Cy Young Award. Though he was strong down...

What To Do About Rzepczynski & Shaw

While the Indians entire roster could be set going into 2015 by simply keeping all those currently under contract around, this is likely not the greatest way to improve the team for another attempt at winning the World Series. Two players in interesting situations this off-season are Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw. Both pitchers are entering arbitration (Rzepczynski his second year...

Terry Francona Contract Extension A Sensible Move By Cleveland Indians

It wasn’t like Terry Francona was walking out the door. He didn’t need to be. The Cleveland Indians obviously realize they have the right man for their managerial job. The Tribe thus made a very sensible move Tuesday in agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Francona despite the skipper already being under team control through the 2016 season. It’s often difficult to...
