Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 33

March 2, 2016 |

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the players who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 33 days

The number 33 has a curious place in Indians history. It has been worn by a handful of prolific sluggers, generally outside of their glory years on the diamond, and at other times was on the backs of some of the better pitchers on the roster through the 1960s.

In March, non-roster invitee Robbie Grossman will wear it on the field as he looks to extend his Major League career with a spot somewhere on the Indians roster. He signed a minor league deal with the club in the offseason and is on the outside looking in at a crowded mix for the outfield this season. Read More

Plutko in Spring Camp with Tribe After Strong Summer on the Farm

March 1, 2016 |

Cleveland Indians minor league pitcher Adam Plutko got a taste of success during his college playing days and has carried on his strong play into the early years of his professional career.

Plutko wrapped up the season with one of the better overall performances in the Indians system in 2015. After starting the season in High-A Lynchburg and breezing through the competition, he moved along to the talented rotation at Double-A Akron and continued his strong showing, finishing the year with a 13-7 combined record, a 2.39 ERA, and a 0.93 WHIP in 27 starts.

The results were promising to say the least for the young right-hander, who turned 24 in October. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 34: Zach McAllister

March 1, 2016 |

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the players who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 34 days

Just when it looked like Zach McAllister had found a role to flourish in as a member of manager Terry Francona’s bullpen during the 2015 season, the Indians skipper throws a wrench into the whole thing as spring training starts by stating that the former Cleveland starting pitcher would be stretched out during camp to potentially compete for a role in the rotation again.

So was this just pandering by Francona, or is he really willing to take another glance at McAllister on a starting staff with more candidates than spots available? Read More

ICYMI at DTTWLN – February 22 to February 28

February 29, 2016 |

While the addition of Juan Uribe became official on Sunday morning, the week of the Cleveland Indians was marred by the news on Friday that potential starting center fielder Abraham Almonte was suspended 80 games for a failed test for a performance enhancing substance. It led to a minor league deal granted to free agent outfielder Will Venable, but it leaves the Indians outfield in a state of flux.

Here’s what else you may have missed as we continue to count down the days until baseball returns in April. Read More

As regular season tickets for the Cleveland Indians’ 2016 season go on sale on Monday morning, their promotional slate for their 81 home dates is once again packed with special giveaways and events all year long.

It will be a quiet April as the club has just three home series to start the first month of the year, but as the gates swing open more frequently at Progressive Field beginning in May, the options for fans increase nicely. Read More

Gorzelanny Looking to Become a Lefty Tito Can Trust

February 28, 2016 |

Like many of his camp competitors at Cleveland’s spring training facility this season, Tom Gorzelanny is coming off of a disappointing 2015 campaign.

The 33-year-old southpaw is entering his 14th season of professional baseball this year and looks to find a spot in the Indians’ heavily-crowded bullpen battle this spring. A former second round pick by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2003, he is one of the elder statesmen in the camp competition for one of a handful of available spots in manager Terry Francona’s bullpen for the coming season.
