INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Zunino Homer Late Sends Tribe to Series Loss; Mariners 6, Indians 5

The crash down on a see-saw really hurts. The Cleveland Indians season has been full of ups and downs and Thursday night’s game was no greater evidence. After Corey Kluber’s dominant performance a night ago, the Indians could not get a solid start from Zach McAllister. McAllister and Mariners starter Chris Young could not pitch deep into the game, with each team registering a...

Cabrera for Walters....was it worth it?

Asdrubal Cabrera was a guy who everyone knew would be traded. His expiring deal and the Indians depth at shortstop made it pretty clear he would end the season with another team. Indians fans grew to dislike Asdrubal over the years. It got to the point where fans could not see the value in him despite what the numbers showed. Is Asdrubal a great player? No. He isn’t really a good...

Francona: 'We will never raise the white flag'

The Cleveland Indians' trade of opening-day starter Justin Masterson could be viewed as the club conceding its season after falling into third place in the AL Central following a difficult stretch. Cleveland contends that's not the case, but it puts added pressure on pitchers like Zach McAllister to make up for Masterson's absence in the rotation. McAllister takes the...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Is Asdrubal Cabrera on the move?

There is nothing more frustrating than being stuck in the middle. The Cleveland Indians are stuck in the middle. They made it to the playoffs last year during the last week of the season and they are standing in nearly identical shoes this year. They are competing with the Royals for second place in the AL Central division. Right now, second place in the AL Central would be good...

Kluber steps up as new Indians ace

CLEVELAND -- On the day that he officially became the staff ace, Corey Kluber pitched the game of his career. Less than eight hours after Justin Masterson was dealt to the Cardinals, Kluber pitched a complete-game, three-hitter as the Indians beat the Mariners 2-0 at Progressive Field on Wednesday. It is the right-hander's second complete game of the season but his first shutout...

Masterson trade follows tough season, lack of extension

CLEVELAND -- Despite signing Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes and Jason Kipnis to extensions, there were many who weren't happy that the Indians were unable to agree to a long-term deal with Justin Masterson. Four months later, those same people would say that ended up being a blessing in disguise. With a day remaining until the trade deadline, the Indians dealt Masterson to the Cardinals...

Why I like the Justin Masterson trade

The Indians made their first deadline move and it was a big one.  They sent right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the Cardinals for minor league outfielder James Ramsey in a one for one deal. The Cardinals had been chasing big name pitchers, but in the end decided it was better to not pay the premium and rolled the dice on Masterson. Initial reaction was very mixed...

Indians Trade Justin Masterson to Cardinals

The Cleveland Indians have traded right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon according to multiple reports. Masterson is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA in 19 starts with the Indians this season. Cleveland and Masterson could not agree on a contract extension during spring training and he has had a very subpar 2014 season. He has been on...

Gonzalez Has Big Shoes to Fill at Akron

With some big shoes to fill, Erik Gonzalez is up for the challenge of replacing top prospect Francisco Lindor at Double-A Akron. Lindor was promoted to Triple-A Columbus on July 21, and Gonzalez was in Akron the next day. After spending most of the first part of the season in High-A Carolina, Gonzalez is going to slide right into the lineup and be the everyday shortstop in Akron...

Carlos Santana named AL Player of the Week

Carlos Santana was feeling it over the last week. So much that there was little question as to who would win the American League Player of the Week. Santana was in a class of his own over the past week. He was the star of an otherwise dull and disappointing road swing for the Indians. Santana put on a one-man hitting clinic. Santana left little doubt in the Player of the Week conversation...

Indians “very willing” to trade Justin Masterson

The Cleveland Indians’ season isn’t going according to plan I wouldn’t say. At the same time when they failed to reach a deal with Masterson and pay him as much money as he wanted to be paid, maybe they knew what they were doing. Masterson has struggled mightily this season – his last under contract with the Indians. Masterson was thought to be seeking $17 million per season...

Ryan Raburn spiked throw results in 'inside-the-park-HR'

In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 8th inning, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit a lazy fly ball down the left-field line. Raburn slid for it, but the ball bounced off his glove and rolled over to the wall. Moustakas seemed content jogging into second for a stand-up double until Raburn tried to throw the ball, as if he wasn’t bad enough with his glove. It turned...
