Little Surprise as Tribe Held Without a Rookie of the Year Again

November 13, 2018 |

Shane Bieber did not place in the American League Rookie of the Year voting, nor did Greg Allen, Adam Plutko, or Adam Cimber, as the Cleveland Indians’ long drought without a winner extends back to 1990, despite several high quality candidates over the last three decades. Former Tribe prospect Joey Wendle, traded to Oakland in the Brandon Moss trade in December of 2014, did earn a fourth-place share of this year’s award with 17 vote points.

It was no surprise that the Indians’ 23-year-old right-handed starting pitcher Bieber did not fit into the mix in a season that saw winner Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels wow with 22 homers and a .285 batting average while also going 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in ten starts before being shut down from his rotation work with right elbow issues. New York Yankees wunderkinder Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres finished second and third, respectively. Read More

November 4, 2018 |

Cleveland’s Yu Chang delivered a big two-run triple for the West team in their walk-off win over the East team in the annual Fall Stars Game on Saturday.

Chang, one of two Indians prospects selected to the roster of the West squad this season, was one of the star performers in the exhibition, breaking a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the sixth inning with his clutch knock. The AFL East team rallied with three runs in the top of the eighth to take their first lead since the top of the first, but the West got back-to-back hits with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game and then steal a walk-off win.
