Mike Aviles Can Do It All

Utility man Mike Aviles played six different positions for the Indians last year: - 26 games at third base - 33 games at second base - 27 games in left field - 15 games at shortstop - 3 games in center field - 3 games in right field Aviles also pinch hit 12 times and pinch ran twice. This versatility is one reason why the Tribe exercised their 2015 club option on Aviles, who will...

Salazar Demoted After Rough Start

After a month of telling you to ignore Spring Training stats, especially the amount of home runs allowed in the offense friendly Goodyear Ballpark, the Indians are telling you the opposite. Less than one day after saying that no one start will make or break a pitcher’s chance at the starting rotation, Danny Salazar has been demoted to AAA, essentially setting the starting rotation...

Debating Lindor, Patrice O’Neal is “Better Than You”: While We’re Waiting…

Thanks for reading everything this week and listening to all the podcasts. For some reason I’m particularly happy with how this week went. There were just enough things to talk about and just enough things to write about, although I know Harv is just about done with all the off-season Browns talk. Trying to figure out Lindor… I really don’t want to be lumped in with the...

Potential 25 Man Roster of the Future

We are ever closer to reducing to 25 men in camp as the most recent set of cuts brought the Indians to just 37 players left in Goodyear. There were definitely some surprises this time around as two players who were considered possibilities, Bruce Chen and C.C. Lee, were reassigned to minor league camp. There was also some disappointment for many fans as Francisco Lindor was also...

Indians prank Jose Ramirez, park his car at shortstop

Cleveland Indians shortstop Jose Ramirez should stop leaving his car keys in the hands of people he doesn’t trust. If not, he could find his BMW fielding a ground ball without a glove on. On Thursday morning, the Indians decided to prank Ramirez by parking his car in his office, essentially. It's a beautiful morning...Read More

Jose Ramirez’s car plays a little shortstop

It’s understandable if the Indians want more speed on defense, but this is ridiculous. Jose Ramirez’s BMW was parked at his shortstop position when the team took the field at their Goodyear, Arizona facility Thursday morning. The youngster apparently has a reputation for parking his ride wherever he sees fit, and his teammates pranked him by putting it smack in the middle...

Indians Mike Aviles Parks Shortstop Jose Ramirez’s SUV On Field

I’m game for a solid Spring Training prank. Let’s go to Indians camp where the boys are loose because Sports Illustrated already has them winning the World Series. This came from a member of the grounds crew.   Mike Aviles didn’t like how Jose Ramirez parked his car anywhere in the players lot so he stole the keys and moved it — Danny Bunkers...

Top 10 Indians Starting Rotations

If the Indians have had one aspect of their team to be proud of over their 114 year history, it is the starting pitching. Of the 12 players in the Hall of Fame as a member of the Cleveland Indians, five are starting pitchers and among the 30 Hall of Famers who played for the Tribe, 14 were starting pitchers. While the greatest of these are well known, the following list will profile...

SI predicts Indians title, 'cover jinx' feared

People are starting to believe in the Cleveland Indians, and it’s not just Tribe fans anymore. On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated tweeted a photo of a cover for their upcoming 2015 MLB preview issue. The cover featured Indians stars Michael Brantley and a smiling Corey Kluber, something that has become a rarity to see. Underneath the “Wait till this year” headline, the cover also...

A tough decision on the Cleveland Indians final rotation spot

This team may have the most consistent year-to-year roster retention it has had in decades. Although there weren’t any major splashes in free agency, the Indians did not lose any of its foundation either and henceforth, look to be promising in the upcoming season. However, their lone pitching pickup, Gavin Floyd, has re-aggravated his elbow and will be out indefinitely. This...

The Cleveland Indians have high hopes for their young pitching staff

It is crazy to see how things can change in a year. Coming off his greatest season in the big leagues, Tribe ace Corey Kluber will have the attention of every opponent he faces this season. No longer will the 28 year-old be able to sneak up on teams, nor will he get to face some of the opposing team’s weaker players. The right-handed pitcher will have to be ready for every team’s...

It’s Time for Francisco Lindor in Cleveland

Last summer I stood on the field before the Eastern League All-Star Game and spoke with Francisco Lindor about his life, his development and his future with the Cleveland Indians. When I asked him if he received the call to the big leagues, if he felt he was ready, his answer was like most every thing he does; outstanding and far better than you would expect from a 21-year old. “If...

Lee Making Most of Right Place, is it His Right Time?

There is an advantage to being in the right place at the right time. For Indians right-handed reliever, C.C. Lee, he seems to be in the right place. Now, he has to make the most of his time and take advantage of an open role in the Tribe’s bullpen. With less than two weeks remaining in spring training, it appears Lee has the inside track on securing an Opening Day roster spot in...

Indians' Francona tells Swisher opening day unlikely

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Terry Francona acknowledged it was unlikely that Nick Swisher would be ready for opening day. And the Cleveland Indians' manager thinks that's just fine. ''We talked to Swish, today,'' Francona said Tuesday. ''We told him opening day is not the final deadline.'' Swisher has been making steady progress in his return from August surgery on both knees. The 34-year...

Look Out For TJ House In 2015

TJ House is everyone’s favorite breakout candidate for the 2015 season. The one team that seems to be often overlooked for a chance to not only win the AL Central, but go for a bit of a run in the post-season is the Cleveland Indians. They’ve added pieces to their offense like Brandon Moss, have one of the best young catchers in the game in Yan Gomes, and have an MVP type...

Cleveland Indians: What ever happened to Matt LaPorta?

Matt LaPorta was once a top prospect in the Cleveland Indians organization with an extremely bright future. He reached the majors quickly after being acquired by the Tribe in 2008, but his Major League career was less than stellar. After parts of four disappointing seasons with the Indians, LaPorta’s baseball days now seem to be over. The Milwaukee Brewers selected LaPorta with...

Cleveland Indians Spring Training: Club Leaning on Francona for Optimism

2015 season preview: Cleveland Indians

When the Indians brought Terry Francona, Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn on prior to the 2013 season it signified a changing of eras for the Tribe. Along with a core of Michael Brantley, Corey Kluber, Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes, the Indians have had winning seasons each of the past two seasons and look to improve upon those records in 2015. With most of the team under control through...

Indians prank Bauer after his terrible outing

  If you’re a pitcher who gives up back-to-back-to-back home runs, chances are you’ll be the butt of a few jokes in the clubhouse.   For Trever Bauer, that certainly was the case. The Cleveland Indians starter gave up consecutive solo shots to Chicago Cubs prospects Jorge Soler, Javier Baez and Kris Bryant in the fourth inning of their spring training matchup...
