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

Countdown to Opening Day – 29 days

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

Lonnie Chisenhall Announces Retirement

February 26, 2020 |

At one point, Lonnie Chisenhall was rated the top prospect in the Indians’ organization.

He never quite lived up to his potential as a first-round draft pick, but he remained a fan favorite during his eight-year career. Chisenhall played 688 games – all in a Cleveland uniform – in his major league career but he announced his retirement in his hometown of Newport, N.C., while his jersey was being raised to the rafters at his former middle school.

“I’ve only played 29 games in the past two years,” Chisenhall said during a Q&A session with the students, according to the Carteret County News-Times. “So between that, and I have three kids at home, they are all in school, traveling around the country wasn’t practical anymore. It was a pretty easy decision.” Read More
