Carrasco and Olson Placed on DL, Bieber and Marshall Promoted from Columbus

June 17, 2018 |

One day after taking a line drive off of his right elbow, the Cleveland Indians formally placed Carlos Carrasco on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday morning. It would not be the only roster move of the day for the Tribe, as the club also placed reliever Tyler Olson on the disabled list with a left latissimus dorsi strain.

In a pair of related moves, the Indians recalled starting pitcher Shane Bieber to start Sunday’s contest with the Minnesota Twins and added reliever Evan Marshall back to the big league bullpen. Read More

Carrasco Hurt as Twins Trample Tribe; Twins 9, Indians 3

June 16, 2018 |

Brandon Guyer pitched for the Cleveland Indians in the ninth inning on Saturday afternoon. If you need an explanation a little bit more specific as to whether or not the Tribe won on Saturday, the answer was a definitive ‘no’.

The Twins rode another big game from Eddie Rosario against Indians pitching this season as Minnesota took an early lead, knocked out Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco after he was struck by a line drive in the second inning, and raced to another win to take its fifth straight game over the Indians this season and its sixth this year in eight tries.

Kluber Appears Human as Twins Take Series Opener; Twins 6, Indians 3

June 15, 2018 |

A bearded imposter, resembling staff ace Corey Kluber, took the mound at Cleveland’s Progressive Field on Friday night for the Indians and allowed four runs during a quick 65-pitch effort over five innings in a 6-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins.

It was a rare night in Cleveland as for the first time in a long time, the tried and true Kluber did not have his A-game on the mound for the Indians. Even then, he still gave the Tribe five innings and allowed just four runs while leaving with plenty of pitches still left in the tank. Cleveland fell in an early hole, aided by two home runs, two errors, and a balk, and its offense was unable to get anything going until the latter innings against Kyle Gibson and the Minnesota bullpen.

Tribe Activates Naquin, Places Alonso on Family Medical Emergency List

June 15, 2018 |

The heavily damaged outfield of the Indians has finally returned to full health, as Cleveland activated Tyler Naquin from the 10-day disabled list on Friday afternoon. In a corresponding move, the Indians placed first baseman Yonder Alonso on the Family Medical Emergency list.

The original plan for the Indians was to option outfielder Greg Allen to Triple-A Columbus, but his stay in Cleveland has been extended a few more days while the club waits for Alonso to rejoin the team. Read More

Tribe Returns Home, Kicks Off Homestand with Three with Twins

June 15, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians will welcome the Minnesota Twins to town for the first time this season as the two teams play three games this weekend from Progressive Field.

The Indians (36-31) will finally get an extended homestand after spending much of the last two weeks playing on the road (minus a silly two-game home series with the Milwaukee Brewers earlier in the month). The Tribe is coming off of a 4-3 roadtrip through Detroit and Chicago, winning their series with the Tigers before splitting with the White Sox. After a record-setting May offensively, the bats have cooled down quite a bit in June, as the team has scored the fourth-fewest runs in the American League (43) in their 12 games this month.

Just hours ahead of the deadline, the Cleveland Indians make their second trade with the Kansas City Athletics in four days as Indians general manager Frank Lane sends former top prospect outfielder Roger Maris, infielder Preston Ward, and pitcher Dick Tomanek to the Kansas City Athletics for utility guy Woodie Held and infielder Vic Power.

Clevinger K’s 11, Ramirez’s Homer Breaks Late Tie for Tribe; Indians 5, Sox 2

June 14, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians wrapped up the final game of their road trip with a 5-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday afternoon, bringing the club back home with a series split and a 4-3 record during their most recent seven games away from home.

It was a united team effort from the Indians in the finale of four straight from Guaranteed Rate Field on Thursday that gave the Tribe a needed victory. Strong starting pitching from Mike Clevinger, a leadoff homer from Francisco Lindor, a go-ahead two-run shot in the seventh from Jose Ramirez, and excellent work out of the bullpen gave Cleveland (36-31) a 5-2 edge in the season series with Chicago (24-43).

The Indians remain four and a half games up in the American League Central with the win, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Minnesota Twins by a 3-1 final earlier in the day. Read More

Tribe Activates Guyer, Designates Cabrera for Assignment

June 14, 2018 |

The Indians resolved a difficult roster move on Thursday morning when they activated outfielder Brandon Guyer from the 10-day disabled list and designated Melky Cabrera for assignment.

Guyer had been on the disabled list since May 23 (retroactive to May 20) while dealing with a left cervical strain suffered on May 19 in Houston when he was elbowed by a fan while pursuing a foul ball into the stands. His progress through a rehab assignment was slowed when he was hit by a pitch on the hand on Sunday while playing with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers. Read More
