INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Today In Tribe History: October 22, 1997

The Cleveland Indians knot up their series with the Florida Marlins at two wins a piece with a strong 10-3 victory. It marks the second straight game that the Indians score in double digits after a 14-11 loss in Game 3 of the World Series. The Indians jump out to an early 6-0 lead after three innings and made the advantage stand up behind a strong showing from rookie right-hander...

Going for the Gold, The Silver & Everything Else

It is hard to rate the Indians 2014 season successful or unsuccessful, largely because the quality of the players involved and the disappointing finish of the team as a whole. When a team has such talented players who stand out, as Michael Brantley and Corey Kluber did this year, the accolades shouldn’t be far behind and the Indians have a chance to bring home a lot of hardware...

Cleveland Rumors: Nick Swisher will return

Cleveland Indians first baseman Nick Swisher had surgery on both knees in August, putting an end to his dud of a 2014 season. Nevertheless, with two years and $30 million still owed on his four-year $56 million contract, he isn't going anywhere, according to Jackson Alexander of MLB.com.#492505095 / gettyimages.comAfter an above-average but not great first season with Cleveland...

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...

A deeper look into the numbers for the Indians

Despite missing the playoffs the Cleveland Indians made some great strides in 2014 and have expanded on an already promising young core of players. I wanted to dive deep into the numbers to find out where the Indians can improve knowing they have limited money to work with.  With arbitration cases and natural raises the Indians will be on the books for somewhere between $70-75 million...

Tomlin and McAllister Out of Options, Perhaps Out of Tribe’s Pitching Staff

Today continues DTTWLN’s three week examination of the Indians’ 2014 season and where it fell short of the playoff expectations established last winter. The staff will examine where the season went wrong and the challenges the front office faces to make the Indians contenders in 2015. Josh Tomlin and Zach McAllister represent essentially all of the starting pitching depth the...

Indians altering conditioning plan for Jason Kipnis

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis put up the worst full-season numbers of his brief major league career this past season, finishing with a .240/.310/.330 slash line with six home runs, 41 RBI, and 22 stolen bases in 555 plate appearances. He suffered from an oblique injury in April and a hamstring injury in September, but neither fully explained how far his numbers had fallen....

Indians offseason checklist: Four steps to a contender in '15

Well, Tribe faithful, here we are again. On the outside looking in on the MLB postseason. Last season the Indians made it by the skin of their teeth and we watched our team put up a goose egg. But outside of that, a legitimate run has been a distant memory. The Indians have a plethora of young talent between the Triple-A and Major League levels, helped by recent drafts and trades...

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...

Is Jason Kipnis just a One Hit Wonder?

Los Del Rio is famous for doing the Macarena and little else. Soft Cell got famous for Tainted Love while Dexys Midnight Runners used Come on Eileen. Right Said Fred told the world that I’m too Sexy and The Baha Men asked Who Let the Dogs Out? Just like all of these other one-hit wonders, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis just might still be cashing in on his biggest hit—June...

Indians Rumors: Cleveland could trade SS

The Cleveland Indians ended the 2014 season with a record of 85-77, third in the American League Central. The Indians were 11th in runs scored and 14th in team ERA. While a bounce back season from Michael Bourn, who appeared in only 106 games this season, would help, the Indians could also trade a shortstop to bolster the roster.#452112622 / gettyimages.comAs reported by Terry Pluto...
