Cleveland Indians minor league recap for June 23, 2017.

Columbus Clippers 3, Toledo Mud Hens 5

Box Score · Clippers fall to 37-35

Julian Merryweather just didn’t have it yesterday. The talented flamethrower gave up four runs (three earned) on six hits while failing to get out of the fourth inning for Columbus.

The offense attempted a late comeback thanks in part to Erik Kratz’s fourth home run in the last three days, but they fell just short.

Cleveland Indians vs. Minnesota Twins series preview

One team is in first place in the AL Central. The other is the Minnesota Twins. This feels much better to type.

The last time the Cleveland Indians started a series with the Minnesota Twins, they were sitting two games back of first place. Now, a week later, the Indians begin a new series with the Twins and now sit in the driver’s seat, up 2.5 games on second place Minnesota.

After getting curb stomped by Cleveland, Minnesota took two of three from the scuffling Chciago White Sox. After...

Indians ‘wide open’ to trades according to Chernoff

Morning news & notes for Friday, June 23, 2017

Going 10-4 is about as well as you can do in a 14-game stretch; prinkling in a few losses is a great way to ensure all the wins actually count. No matter what arbitrary value you do or don’t assign to winning streaks, the Tribe is on a roll! More news on that and the rest of baseball below:

Indians 6, Orioles 3

Mike Clevinger threw approximately 473 pitches through the first two innings, yet somehow managed to gut out five total innings. He...

Austin Jackson leads Tribe in 6-3 win over Orioles

Jackson went 3-5 with 3 RBI’s . . . Three out of four. While it wasn’t entirely pretty, the Indians got the job done Thursday night, defeating the Orioles 6-3 to take three out of four from the O’s in Baltimore. A job well done I say. With the win, the Tribe improves to 39-32 on the year. Here’s the cliff notes on the victory: Austin Jackson had himself a game. The veteran outfielder went 3-5 with three RBI. Jackson laced a Wade Miley full-count fastball in the second inning to...

Jackson giving Tribe a boost with hot stretch

With three Indians outfielders on the disabled list, Austin Jackson has relied on his "just be ready" mentality to play any position and bat in any spot in the lineup that his team needs him to on any given night. On Thursday, the outfielder was more than ready in the series finale against the Orioles.

Jackson, Clevinger spark Tribe to win over O's

A three-RBI night by Austin Jackson gave Indians starter Mike Clevinger just enough cushion to go a solid five innings, as the Indians secured a series victory with a 6-3 win over the Orioles on Thursday night at Camden Yards.

Guyer to continue rehab at Triple-A Columbus

Indians outfielder Brandon Guyer returned to Cleveland on Thursday after a four-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus hoping he would be able to rejoin the Tribe, but after an evaluation by the training staff, Guyer will be playing at least one more game with Columbus on Friday.

One-armed catcher, 14, takes part in Orioles’ ceremonial pitch

Luke Terry, a 14-year-old catcher who had his right arm amputated as a baby, caught the ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday’s Baltimore Orioles-Cleveland Indians tilt from Hall of Famer and Orioles icon Jim Palmer. Terry, who had his right arm amputated at 19 months old due to an e. Coli bacterial infection, demonstrated remarkable dexterity by catching the ball, flipping it in the air while removing his mitt, grasping it and tossing it to Orioles bench coach John Russell. “I used to...

The power of Mini Jose can now be yours with BreakingT’s newest t-shirt

If it’s good enough to win Jose Ramirez Player of the Week, it’s good enough to help you be a better person.

The Cleveland Indians are in the midst of making everyone on the team into little baseball effigies, if a report from Andre Knott during Wednesday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles is to be believed. But it all started with a little handiwork from Carlos Carrasco, which you can now own thanks to BreakingT.

Cookie crafted the creation last Thursday, when the Indians were...

Lonnie Chisenhall is crushing lefties

The Tribe outfielder is doing a specific thing he used to not do well at all.

Lonnie Chisenhall is an offensive force this year, simple as that.

While he trails several players in games and counting stats because he missed the first few weeks of the year, he's a major offensive rate stat leader. He paces the pack in wRC+ at 150, slugging percentage at .618, and despite his game deficit he’s third in fWAR at 1.3 (fifth in rWAR at 1.1 due to defensive shortcomings according to B-Ref) and...

Indians 2017 draft tracker: Who has signed so far, and for how much?

An update on which Indians draft picks have agreed to a deal

Every pick through the end of round 10 of the MLB draft has a slot value. This is sort of a recommended signing bonus for each of those picks. The number one overall pick has a slot value of $7.7 million this year, all the way down to the final few picks of the 10th round, which have a slot value of $131,300. Teams can still sign their draft picks for however much they want, but if their total expenditures on players in the first...

Hillcats at the Carolina League All-Star Classic

The 2017 season will be the first time since 1998 that the Carolina League hosts its own cavalcade of stars. The last time the Carolina League held an All-Star game featuring the Northern Division stars versus the Southern Division stars, High-A Lynchburg pitcher Triston McKenzie was not even a year old and was still living in Brooklyn, New York. The relocation of two franchises from the California League to the Carolina League during the previous off-season followed the end of the...

Today in Tribe History: June 22, 2001

The Cleveland Indians acquire the highly controversial John Rocker from the Atlanta Braves with a minor leaguer for relievers Steve Karsay and Steve Reed. Just a few years after becoming a household name across the country for all of the wrong reasons, Rocker was given a fresh start in Cleveland after proving to be a reliable closer for the Atlanta Braves for several seasons. He would save four games in Cleveland in 38 appearances while going 3-7 with a 5.45 ERA and was dealt to the Texas...

Lindor and Carrasco Lift Tribe to Victory in Baltimore; Indians 5, Orioles 1

Six innings of quality work from Carlos Carrasco, coupled with three RBI from Francisco Lindor, were more than enough for Cleveland on Wednesday night as the Indians defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 5-1, to win for the seventh time in their last eight games. The final score was not indicative of a well-pitched game early on between Carrasco and Baltimore’s Kevin Gausman, who pitched far better than his numbers on the season would indicate. The Indians had the tough task of facing him at...

Miller at it again, escapes jam

With the bases loaded, no outs and a three-run lead on the line, there is no better reliever to put on the mound than the Indians' Andrew Miller.

Tribe pulls away from Orioles 5-1 with assist from Andrew Miller

Miller defused a volatile bases-loaded jam in the seventh to preserve the lead

When Andrew Miller entered the game in the seventh inning, he faced the highest leverage situation possible: bases loaded and nobody out. The Indians did have a 3-0 lead, which helped a bit, and he was facing the bottom of the Baltimore order. But even so, one hit could have flipped the score. What we didn’t know at the time was that Cody Allen was unavailable tonight, so Terry Francona was choosing to use his...
