Can Indians keep Clevinger in starting role?

With ace Corey Kluber nearing his return from the disabled list, the Indians have a decision to make. Right-hander Mike Clevinger has performed well enough that Cleveland plans on sifting through its options for potentially keeping him in the rotation.

MLB Draft 2017: Cleveland Indians outfielder system depth

We begin our MLB Draft 2017 coverage with a look at the depth of outfielders in the Indians farm system.

The biggest question mark for the Cleveland Indians right now on offense is the outfield. Michael Brantley is one of the best in the game over in left field, and Lonnie Chisenhall has been an above-average player when roaming either right or center, but Chisenhall’s currently on his last year of arbitration and Brantley’s contract has a club option for 2018 and he becomes an...

Brady Aiken shelled for 10 runs (two earned) in Lake County loss

Cleveland Indians minor league recap for May 23, 2017.

Akron RubberDucks 4, Altoona Curve 3

Box Score · RubberDucks improve to 18-21

Only three players on Akron had hits yesterday, but thankfully, all three had multi-hit games, which helped the RubberDucks score two runs in the ninth inning to take the lead and give just enough cushion for the bullpen to hold it.

Joe Sever, Yu-Cheng Chang and Bobby Bradley were the perpetrators, but it was Bradley who had the biggest game, going 3-3 at the...

Cleveland Indians sign David Lough to a minor league deal

MOVES:

RHP Carlos Frias - accepted outright assignment
INF Todd Hankins - transferred from Akron
OF David Lough - signed free agent

Mike Clevinger’s near no-no was bound to happen

The young Tribe hurler doesn’t give hitters much to hit. Throwing more strikes led to a brilliant afternoon.

The way Mike Clevinger has pitched in his young major league career, being told he threw a no-hitter wouldn’t be that surprising. The key word, of course, is "hitter".

Prior to his start on Saturday, Clevinger was very good at missing bats, but also one of the best in baseball at missing the strike zone. I expected more of this trend when he faced the Houston Astros this past...

Corey Kluber is making his way back

Morning news and notes for Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

My maintenance manager where I work is from Cincinnati, and I love to give him some good natured ribbing every year when the Reds play the Indians. He’s getting the last laugh...for now.

Indians 1, Reds 5

The Cincinnati Reds defeat the Tribe by giving up just one run against five.

So now, kick back and read a recap writ in blank verse, filled with fuzzy animals.

The Cincinnati Reds — tonight’s matchup —
had reeled off nine losses out of ten,
and looked to be an easy W.
The Indians of Cleveland came in hot,
riding a run of victories last week
against a Houston team that sits atop
the standings of the American League.

After a solid start from Scott Feldman,
a shaky one from Cleveland’s Josh Tomlin,
the Reds take the first ballgame of the set:
A final score of 5-1...

Carlos Santana lays out for an outstanding catch

Is this the same guy who couldn’t hack it at catcher or first base? Mere innings after colliding with the wall and giving every Cleveland Indians fans a collective heart attack, Carlos Santana made himself look like a bonafide right fielder with this outstanding diving catch. And thanks to Joey Votto not knowing there were two outs, it turned into an inning-ending double play. Santana’s career started as a catcher, but he moved to third base after defensive struggles at the position,...

Cleveland Indians vs. Cincinnati Reds series preview

The Indians are good, the Reds aren’t as good. Here’s a preview.

Despite a good start to the season, the Cincinnati Reds probably aren’t winning a World Series this year as their window to win is still a year or two away. But they have Joey Votto and that has to count for something. Unfortunately, the most patient hitter in the league can’t help their young pitching staff, which sports the fourth-highest ERA in the National League.

Weather should be fine for the first couple games,...
