Columbus Clippers turn triple play in defeat

Cleveland Indians minor league recap for August 23, 2017. Columbus Clippers 1, Toledo Mud Hens 6 Box Score · Clippers fall to 66-63 Without league leading hitter Yandy Diaz, the Columbus offense couldn’t get out of first gear, with no players collecting multi-hit games. Eric Stamets had the only memorable day for position players, going 1-1 at the plate with two walks and a stolen base. He also showcased his elite defense, making an incredible leaping grab to set up a triple play....

Corey Kluber in 2017

Cleveland’s Corey Kluber is once again a serious Cy Young award contender in 2017, after placing third in 2016, ninth in 2015, and winning the award in 2014. So far in 2017, the right-handed pitcher is having one of the best seasons of his excellent career. He has put up a 2.67 ERA (for a league-leading ERA+ of 174, fractionally higher than Chris Sale’s) and a 0.924 WHIP, with a 12-3 win-lost record. His SO/9 (12.2) is the highest of his career, and his BB/9 of 1.9 is his second-lowest....

Claim Your Prize: Jason Kipnis becomes 1000th Cleveland Indian to leave a game this month

Morning News and Notes for August 23, 2017 A number of very #sad things took place in last night's ballgame which was delayed more than an hour due to rain. It's hard to pick one as being worse than the others, so in no order: • Terry Francona left Carlos Carrasco in for about 4 extra batters when it was clear he was done.• Zach McAllister and Shawn Armstrong were horrible. The former has been trending downward for weeks now and the latter has been awful every time he's been recalled...

Jason Kipnis exits game early with hamstring tightness

The 1,487th injury in the last two days for the Tribe. Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis left tonight’s game against the Boston Red Sox game due to right hamstring tightness, per multiple sources on Twitter. Kipnis was mysteriously pinch-hit for in the third inning, but the assumption as injury caused by running out a ball in his first at-bat of the game. The All-Star second baseman has had hamstring issues all season — he missed almost all of July with hamstring...

Kipnis exits with right hamstring tightness

Jason Kipnis has been trying to stay on the field as much as possible for the injury-riddled Indians. On Tuesday night, the second baseman had to bow out of Cleveland's game against the Red Sox, joining the Tribe's growing list of walking wounded.

Indians equivalent of Kyrie Irving trade is too painful to think about

Some rain delay-induced thoughts on a trade in a different sport

Tonight during a lengthy Cleveland Indians rain delay, the cross-town Cleveland Cavaliers dealt Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics for a package of players that were decidedly not Kyrie Irving. I don’t know enough about basketball to comment on the trade itself, nor the quality of the return the Cavaliers got. All I know is, thinking about the Indians equivalent of it sucks. And so does this rain delay, so here are some...

The Indians are on a mission to make you pay attention whether you want to or not

Baseball has always been a game driven by big markets. Aaron Judge and New York Yankees; Cody Bellinger, Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers; the Chicago Cubs, New York Mets, Boston Red Sox and Washington Nationals all check in among the most visible teams in the game from a national broadcast, merchandise sales and visibility standpoint. Of the first 11 ESPN "Sunday Night Baseball" telecasts of the year, 10 of those games featured at least one of the aforementioned ball clubs, with...

Bleacher Report - Cleveland Indians

Andrew Miller Placed on 10-Day DL by Indians Due to Knee Injury

The Cleveland Indians bullpen suffered a setback Tuesday when star reliever Andrew Miller was placed on the 10-day disabled list with patellar tendinitis for the second time since the All-Star break.

He first landed on the disabled list Aug. 2 due to patellar tendinitis in his right knee before returning to the mound Aug. 18.

When he hasn't been on the shelf, the two-time All-Star has continued to operate as one of Major League Baseball's top-notch setup men. 

In 48 appearances, the...

Bleacher Report - Cleveland Indians

Danny Salazar Placed on 10-Day DL by Indians Due to Elbow Injury

The Cleveland Indians announced Tuesday that they placed pitcher Danny Salazar on the 10-day disabled list because of elbow inflammation.

Salazar is in his fifth MLB season (fourth full), and he earned his first All-Star appearance in 2016. He has not been as strong in 2017, however. He's posted a 5-6 record with an 4.30 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 92 innings pitched.

He has yet to throw more than 185 innings in a major league season, speaking to both his injury troubles and Cleveland's...

Indians Place Andrew Miller, Danny Salazar On 10-Day DL

The Indians have placed two key hurlers — lefty Andrew Miller and right-handed starter Danny Salazar — on the 10-day DL, per a club announcement. The team has recalled righty Shawn Armstrong and infielder Yandy Diaz to take the open roster spots. It’s disappointing to see both Miller and Salazar landing back on the DL so soon after recent trips. The former left his appearance last night after a worrying dip in velocity, as his patellar tendinitis has flared up. Meanwhile, the latter...

Tribe's Miller (knee), Salazar (elbow) put on DL

Two important arms have been shelved for the Indians. Prior to Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Cleveland placed relief ace Andrew Miller and starter Danny Salazar on the 10-day disabled list.

A closer look at Francisco Lindor’s increased power

The Tribe shortstop cracked 20 home runs, but is having a merely average offensive season.

This past weekend, Francisco Lindor cracked the 20 home run barrier for the first time in his young career. This is yet another milestone that admittedly few thought he'd reach before he hit the majors — he was supposed to be Andrelton Simmons with a better bat, but this is a level he wasn't supposed to see until 27 or so. He just keeps being better and better. Despite this unlikely power output,...

Let’s Talk Tribe Podcast Ep. 78: The only good thing

In this week’s episode of Let’s Talk Tribe, we discuss some unfortunate injuries, Jay Bruce’s greatness, Mets misery, Corey Kluber’s Cy Young chances, your questions, and more!

You think you can stop the Cleveland Indians with your puny injuries and difficult schedules? Roberto Perez doesn’t think so, and apparently neither does Jay Bruce. That doesn’t mean the injuries don’t suck, though, and it’d be cool if they would stop any day now.
