Former Tribe Reliever Rich Rundles Passes Away at 38

December 23, 2019 |

Rich Rundles, who spent his entire big league career with the Cleveland Indians in 2008 and 2009, died on December 16 from natural causes. He was only 38.

The left-handed Rundles was a LOOGY in manager Eric Wedge’s bullpen for a handful of games over two seasons in Cleveland after spending the first nine years of his professional career bouncing around the minor league landscape. A third round pick by the Boston Red Sox in 1999 out of Jefferson County High School in Dandridge, Tennessee, Rundles worked for the club for two years before he was dealt to the Montreal Expos with pitcher Tomo Ohka for reliever Ugueth Urbina. He signed with the St. Louis Cardinals following the 2005 season and was dealt the next June to the New York Mets, but became a free agent after the season and signed with the Indians just ahead of 2007’s spring training festivities.

As Expected, Tribe Quiet in Rule 5 Draft

December 12, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians went into the Rule 5 draft with a loaded 40-man roster, meaning the club was going to be sitting out the Major League portion of the annual December draft.

While the Indians did not add to their 26-man big league roster for the coming year, the team did avoid losing any unprotected players during the MLB draft. That could not be said during the minor league portion, where the team added a pair but lost three during the less-frequently discussed phase of the yearly lottery.

Joining the Indians organization Thursday were pitchers Danny Young and Jhon Peluffo. Read More

Indians Finalize 40-Man, Add Three New Names While Two Part Ways

November 21, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians finalized their 40-man roster ahead of December’s Rule 5 draft on Wednesday night as they announced that three contracts had been purchased from minor league affiliates.

Two of the moves were expected, as top pitching prospect Triston McKenzie and outfielder Daniel Johnson were both added to the 40-man roster. Also joining them as new faces to the Tribe’s 40-man mix was left-handed pitcher Scott Moss, who was acquired at the trade deadline from the Cincinnati Reds as part of the three-team trade that centered around Trevor Bauer, Yasiel Puig, and Franmil Reyes.

Indians Outright Four, All Declare Free Agency

November 4, 2019 |

The Indians cleaned up the roster some on Monday morning, activating infielder Christian Arroyo, pitcher Corey Kluber, and outfielder Tyler Naquin from the 60-day injured list as part of typical front office post-season moves.

The other set of moves announced on the day, however, opened up some space on the club’s 40-man roster. Pitchers Cody Anderson, A.J. Cole, Tyler Olson, and Danny Salazar were activated from their stints on the injured list and subsequently outrighted to Triple-A Columbus. The four all elected to become free agents instead of accepting the assignments back to the minors. Read More

The most notable of the moves were the additions of pitchers Carlos Carrasco (leukemia) and Dan Otero (right shoulder inflammation) from the 60-day injured list. Eric Haase joined the club in more conventional fashion as he was recalled for the second time this season from Triple-A Columbus. In addition, the Indians selected the contracts of right-handed reliever James Hoyt and utility man Ryan Flaherty from Columbus. Read More
