How Will The Tribe’s Expanded Roster Look?

On Tuesday, September 1, the MLB roster capacity will expand from 25 to 40. This will give the Indians, and every other major league baseball team, the ability to add to their active roster. As it sits right now, the Indians have 41 men listed on their 40 man roster. However, because Gavin Floyd and Nick Hagadone are on the team’s 60-Day disabled list, they do not count against...

Without a big TV deal in place to keep revenue flowing, Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan is trying to lure investors by offering minority stakes for the franchise. Unfortunately, Dolan’s efforts may well be futile. According to the New York Post, Dolan has hired a boutique investment bank, Allen & Co., to “shop roughly 30 percent of the team.” “He doesn’t have...

Almonte Homer Sends Tribe to Sweep and Five in a Row; Indians 9, Angels 2

The Cleveland Indians are working on a positive finish to a roller-coaster August. Abraham Almonte hit his first career grand slam and Josh Tomlin worked into the eighth inning, leading the Indians to a 9-2 win over the slumping Los Angeles Angels on Sunday. Cleveland (63-66) has won five in a row to stay in the race for the second AL wild card. It is quite a turnaround from an extended...

The Curious Case of the Cleveland Indians

The Cleveland Indians have won five consecutive games and eight of their last 10. They have allowed more than three runs to cross the plate in just one of their last seven games. They have hit at least 10 hits in their last 12 home games. The franchise record is 13 games and it was set in 1936.

8/29 Recap: Indians Offense Erupts With Gomes Grand Slam

Player of the Game Yan Gomes came up with a huge grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Indians a commanding 8-3 lead and broke open what had been a close, well-pitched game to that point. Gomes’ blast followed a clutch double by Carlos Santana that broke a 3-3 tie to give the Indians a 4-3 lead. Gomes also got the job done in the bottom of the second inning...

Top of Tribe Lineup Gives Hope for Future Seasons

When the Indians season started, offense was a dirty word that never quite appeared. Until late April, Michael Bourn was leading the Indians lineup after being rumored to be able to get on base, but proving ineffective at drawing walks and delivering hits that put him on base and resulted in runs being scored. Once he moved out of the leadoff spot, Jason Kipnis took over and, slowly...

8/28 Recap: Tribe Uses Late Rally to Take 3rd Straight

Player of the Game Trevor Bauer hurled his second straight great start after a hiccough of two very poor ones in a row. Tonight he used more of a pitch-to-contact strategy to keep his pitch count down, allowing him to stay in the game for eight innings. In those, he struck out seven while allowing five hits, three walks and one run. Considering that Bauer didn’t know he was going...

Lindor Living Up to High Expectations

If Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is not careful, he could end up in the debate for American League Rookie of the Year. Actually, since the All-Star break, Lindor has looked more like a seasoned league MVP than a player getting his first taste of Major League Baseball action. Lindor certainly has more to learn, as any 21-year-old would. However, he seems so far ahead of the game...

Video: Watch this Indians fan snag a screaming liner

The Cleveland Indians weren’t the only ones to go home winners on Tuesday night as a fan down the third-base line was right there with them. Watch as left-handed Abraham Almonte slaps a first-pitch fastball down the line, only to have the screaming liner absolutely speared by a glove-toting, bearded gentleman just beyond the edge of the tarp. One hell of a snag, right? Rick Manning...

Carlos Carrasco placed on DL; Cody Anderson to start Wednesday

On the same day that he made a Twittter account, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco landed on the disabled list with a sore right shoulder. The 12-game winner received an MRI Tuesday morning and cortisone shot later in the day, but Indians manager Terr Francona said that Carrasco has bursitis in his shoulder.

MLB Quick Hits: DL for Indians' Carrasco

Indians SP Carlos Carrasco is on the DL with a sore shoulder. Manager Terry Francona said that the issue is bursitis, and added: "He'll be down for four or five days. Then he'll start throwing again. By all accounts, from talking to the doctor, he'll be fine ... He just had some inflammation in there. This will knock it out and he'll be good to go." The earliest Carrasco can return...

Francisco Lindor catching up to Carlos Correa, even if you’ve never heard of him

When Carlos Correa made his major league debut for the first place Astros in June and crushed two home runs his first week, many dubbed him the next Alex Rodriguez and closed their minds to the AL Rookie of the Year race. The 20 year old, slick fielding shortstop was the best we were going to see this year without question. Francisco Lindor would like you to open your minds and your...

Fantasy Roundup: Santana’s Subpar Season

Yoenis Cespedes Yoenis Cespedes, and for that matter much of the Mets team, had a monstrous weekend in Colorado. Much of Cespedes’ damage was done Friday night when he recorded five hits, scored five runs, hit three home runs, and drove in seven runs. Those numbers are a pretty good week from a fantasy player, let alone a stat line for one night. Cespedes hasn’t really gotten...

Cleveland Indians: Lindor answering questions for 2016

The Cleveland Indians will head into the offseason with a number of questions for 2016, and although the Tribe certainly needs to look outside of their organization for answers, they may be able to find help within the organization as well. The biggest problem heading into 2016 seems to be the offense. The offensive problems have spanned all of 2015 (and frankly, long before that...

Francona: Umpire’s explanation was “atrocious” (Video)

Midway through Saturday’s tilt between the Cleveland Indians and New York Yankees, Tribe manager Terry Francona was shown the door for arguing a call that, after the fact, appeared to be pretty clear cut. In the top of the fifth inning, with the Yankees leading 5-1 and runners on the corners, New York Shortstop Didi Gregorius took a throw from first base that appeared to pull him...

Lonnie Chisenhall reviving career with new role

When Lonnie Chisenhall began the 2015 Major League season as the starting third baseman for the Cleveland Indians, many Tribe fans believed that he only had one chance left with the club. The Indians’ 2008 first-round draft pick (29th overall) made his highly anticipated big league debut with the Tribe on June 27, 2011 , but it had mostly been three and a half years of disappointment...

What happened to the Indians this season?

The Cleveland Indians were a popular pick to make the playoffs this season. Yours truly felt that Cleveland would coast to the AL Central title following an 85-win 2014. But things obviously haven’t gone according to plans. Through 113 games, the Tribe are 53-60, a whopping 14.5 games behind the Royals in the AL Central.

Trevor Bauer: Towards Better Pitching Through Science

Before anybody snarks about the quality of Trevor Bauer‘s pitching, and whether or not he’s good enough for us to value his thoughts on pitching, know that he’s fully aware of his limits, and was even before conceding six runs to the Yankees last night (box). “I don’t throw hard enough. My pitches aren’t strikes often enough. My pitches are consistent enough. I’d almost...
