INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Close losses an unwanted theme for Tribe

Since embarking on a nine-game road trip just over a week ago, the Indians are 4-4, with one left before heading home. But they're probably a combined handful of feet away from having a chance to go back to Cleveland undefeated.

An all-too-familiar outcome. Indians 3, Phillies 4 Box Score Indians fall to 10-10 -- The Cleveland Indians stretched the game out to 11 innings, but the result was the same as it has been far too often recently: a walk-off loss. A questionable Terry Francona decision late was the deciding factor in this one, and maybe now he will actually consider giving Cody Allen and...

Indians will certainly miss Carlos Carrasco for the next month

Just as the Indians got good news on the injury front with Michael Brantley returning to the team on Monday night, things got much, much worse. On an odd play Sunday, Carlos Carrasco was covering first base when his left leg collapsed under him. By some miracle of foot placement, Carrasco got the out at first, but he only took a couple more steps once standing up before falling right...

Indians minor league recap: Clint Frazier just keeps hitting

And the RubberDucks keep losing, unfortunately. Only two Cleveland Indians farm teams played yesterday, and only one of them had a good day.

Cleveland Indians: Who is Jose Ramirez?

Since Jose Ramirez debuted with the team in 2013 the Cleveland Indians have pieced together three consecutive seasons better than any other year since their 96-win season in 2007. In that time he has only played 180 games with 635 at-bats. So the Indians’ success is a bit more coincidental than I led on a few words earlier, but the point holds. That’s the type of player Ramirez...

Ball Played: One mistake is one too many for Salazar, Tribe
