The Indians essentially swapped backup catchers with the Boston Red Sox in the offseason.

Kevin Plawecki, a former late first round pick by the New York Mets who wore the number 27 for the Indians in his one season in town in 2019, filled the void behind the plate created when Cleveland traded Yan Gomes to Washington. The Indians added the longtime Met in a trade on January 6, 2019, dealing minor leaguer Sam Haggerty and reliever Walker Lockett for him. Read More

The Cleveland Indians have seldom used the number 29 since the turn of the century. Just four players have worn it in that time over six of the 19 seasons since the world evaded any drastic Y2K related catastrophes. Its inconsistent use now is a stark contrast to some of the lean years for the Tribe, when the number was in use for more than 20 consecutive years from 1966 to 1989, capped off by time spent on the back of one of the team’s legendary sluggers.

A little change of scenery can sometimes do some good and that was the case for former Indian Andre Thornton. It was a trade to Cleveland in 1976 that reignited his struggling pro baseball career. Read More

The Danny Salazar experiment in Cleveland finally came to a close last November. After standing by his side after a long investment in his development and a sizable check cut by Mr. Dolan for his services over the last couple of seasons, Salazar provided the Indians with just four innings on the big league mound over the last two years and was outrighted to the minors following the 2019 campaign.

Salazar declined the assignment, becoming a free agent. Read More
