June 16, 2019 |

Trevor Bauer went the distance for the third time in his career on Sunday, firing his first professional shutout in a four-hit 8-0 gem over the Detroit Tigers from Comerica Park.

Needing to pick up their play against the American League Central Division, the Cleveland Indians (37-33) did that this weekend in securing a series sweep over the fourth place Tigers, moving to 5-1 on the year against their divisional foe. They did so in fairly dominating fashion to boot, outscoring the host club 25-6 in a series highlighted by impressive starting pitching and a healthy offensive contribution from Cleveland. Read More

Indians Claim Stephens from White Sox, Trade Pounders to the Mets

June 16, 2019 |

The Indians made a handful of minor roster moves on Saturday, highlighted by a waiver claim of pitcher Jordan Stephens from the Chicago White Sox.

A 26-year-old right-handed pitcher, Stephens was added to the 40-man roster as a result of the waiver claim and optioned to Double-A Akron. To make room on the 40-man for Stephens, outfielder Bradley Zimmer was transferred from the 10-day to the 60-day injured list while rehabbing his right shoulder injury. Read More

June 15, 2019 | | One Comment

Shane Bieber lasted two outs into the eighth inning, while the Indians got to Nick Ramirez for three runs in the fifth inning to lead Cleveland to a 4-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night.

For four innings, the Indians could not strike through against left-hander Gregory Soto, fresh up from Triple-A Toledo to head up a bullpen game for the Tigers. Once he left the mound, the Indians put together a big inning and used another strong pitching performance from Bieber, who struck out a dozen, to hold on for victory. Read More

Bauers’ Cycle Caps Tribe Rout in Motown; Indians 13, Tigers 4

June 14, 2019 |

Jake Bauers hit for the first Indians cycle since 2016 and the offense used a season-high eight-run fourth inning to rout the Detroit Tigers in a 13-4 win on Friday night.

The Cleveland offense enjoyed its series opener at Comerica Park despite losing an early 2-0 lead. After falling behind in the third, the team batted around while putting up eight runs in the fourth and tacked on three more runs for good measure to easily defeat the host Tigers. Six different Tribe hitters had multi-hit games, including a three-hit day from Roberto Perez and a cycle for Bauers, who needed his last at bat in the eighth to become the ninth Cleveland player in the 119-year history of the organization to get a single, double, triple, and homer in the same game.

Tribe Stepping Up of Late Against Playoff Caliber Opponents

June 14, 2019 |

Just as things appeared to be spiraling into the abyss, the Indians won some big games against some of the top competition in the American League over the last few weeks.

While stories across the country have focused on which players the Indians should look to purge by the July 31 deadline, the team has instead showed surprising signs of life after dealing with a slew of injuries to their starting rotation and operating an offense as inconsistent as they come. Buried still deep behind the Minnesota Twins, who have an 11-game lead in the American League Central (just a half-game short of the Indians’ biggest deficit to Minnesota this season), the Tribe has a giant mountain to climb in a division that they were supposed to run away with. While the magic eight ball may indicate “Outlook Not So Good” for the Indians’ chances of chasing down the still surging Twins, the team is only 1.5 games in back of the Texas Rangers for the second American League Wild Card spot.

Clevinger Set to Return on Monday from Injured List

June 13, 2019 |

Mike Clevinger’s rehab start in Akron on Tuesday night was much more in line with the Indians’ hopes than his first game back with the Columbus Clippers while recovering from a right upper back/Teres major muscle strain. Now, he is in line to return to the Show next week.

The 28-year-old’s next start is tentatively scheduled for Monday, opening Cleveland’s four-game series in Texas against the American League Wild Card contending Rangers. Clevinger’s return marks an impressive turnaround time from an injury that was supposed to prevent him from throwing for six to eight weeks, not counting the additional time needed to build up strength and rehab.

The Continuing Transformation of Lynchburg’s Matt Solter

June 13, 2019 |

If you examine the baseball resume of Matt Solter, your first thought might be journeyman. Since graduating from high school in New Bern, North Carolina, in 2012, he has pitched for Furman University, the Strasburg Express of the Valley League, the independent clubs of Gary-Southshore and St. Paul (bracketing a two-year stint in the Giants organization at Augusta and then San Jose), and finally ending up with the Cleveland Indians organization for the 2019 season.

This is not an unusual pathway for an undrafted player. For Solter, it is par for the course.

“My whole life has kind of set me up for this,” he shared with Did The Tribe Win Last Night. “All this travel is fun for me, so easy.” Read More
