Cody Anderson

Indians Select Contract of Cole, Option Anderson to Columbus

May 11, 2019 |

Consecutive short starts from Cody Anderson have forced the Cleveland Indians to call for reinforcements.

After Anderson threw 68 pitches in just three innings of work, the Indians were forced to use seven of their eight relievers in Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics. To add a rested arm to the relief corps, the team purchased the contract of right-hander A.J. Cole from Triple-A Columbus and optioned Anderson to their top farm club. Read More

Chapman Wins it with Walk-off Homer in Twelve; Athletics 4, Indians 3

May 11, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians bullpen had to work extra on Friday and eventually just ran out of luck. Brad Hand, the team’s eighth different pitcher on the night, threw just six pitches and was taken deep to start the bottom of the 12th inning by Oakland’s Matt Chapman as the A’s defeated the Indians with a 4-3 walk-off celebration.

In a game that could have detrimental effects on the Indians over the course of their five-game road trip to Oakland and Chicago, Cleveland responded twice to Oakland scoring efforts, with the final time coming in the top of the seventh to tie the game. Cody Anderson burned through 68 pitches in just three innings of work, forcing the bullpen to send seven different relievers to the mound to work eight-plus innings. The A’s got a quality effort from right-hander Frankie Montas, while the final three Oakland relievers fired five perfect innings of shutout baseball while striking out five. Read More

Tribe Heads to the West Coast for Three with A’s

May 10, 2019 |

It would appear as though schedule makers have never dealt with inconvenient flight schedules. After a rain-delayed getaway day start on Thursday against Chicago, the Cleveland Indians hopped a late plane to Oakland to start a three-game trip to the Bay Area against the A’s this weekend.

Oakland (17-22) is coming off of back-to-back interleague series with Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, with the latter series starting a six-game homestand against state of Ohio. The matchcup with the Pirates over the weekend closed their road trip with a series loss, as they rolled the host club 14-1 on Friday before falling 6-4 and 5-3. Two shutouts highlighted their three games against the Reds, as they enjoyed a 2-0 no-hitter on Tuesday and a 5-4 win on Wednesday before Cincinnati fired a 3-0 shutout to avoid the sweep on Thursday.

Mariners Rout Tribe in Two-Hit Shutout; Mariners 10, Indians 0

May 5, 2019 |

A first inning grand slam by former Indian Jay Bruce highlighted a ten-run shellacking by Seattle in Cleveland on Sunday as the Mariners routed the Tribe in a 10-0 two-hit shutout.

For the first time in 13 tries this season, the Mariners (19-17) defeated a team with a winning record and salvaged the season series against the Indians (18-14) by avoiding a second sweep against Cleveland in the final game between the two clubs this year. The win ended their six-game losing streak. Read More

Casted Kluber Means Rotation Replacement Desperately Needed

May 3, 2019 | | One Comment

When a front office plans the entire offseason around purging money from the offensive side of the lineup because the team’s starting rotation is so dominant, the last thing needed is to lose one of those dynamic starting pitchers.

Two starts into his season, the Indians lost Mike Clevinger to an upper back strain. With injuries to top backup arms in the minors, the Tribe had little recourse but to call upon Jefry Rodriguez, who has only been needed for a pair of spot starts because of so many off days early in the 2019 schedule.

Now, the team is scrambling after ace Corey Kluber suffered a non-displaced fracture of the right ulna in his forearm after being struck by a 102 MPH line drive in Miami off of the bat of Brian Anderson on Wednesday night. Read More

Braves Bash Bieber and Tribe to Claim Series Win; Braves 11, Indians 5

April 21, 2019 |

In the event that you thought the 11-5 score from Progressive Field was a close game, that final score was hardly indicative of the results as the Cleveland Indians buried themselves under an eleven-run deficit before finding the scoreboard late in an embarrassing shellacking by the Atlanta Braves on Sunday in the series finale.

In a nationally televised game on ESPN, the game was essentially over after two frames. On the heels of a disastrous ninth inning in the second game of Saturday’s double dip, the Indians allowed nine runs in the first four innings on Sunday before scoring some garbage time runs to make the final a little more palatable.

Tribe Bullpen Blows Lead in Five-Run Ninth; Braves 8, Indians 7

April 21, 2019 |

The Cleveland bullpen coughed up a four-run lead in a five-run Atlanta ninth as the Indians fell to the Braves, 8-7, in game two of Saturday’s doubleheader from Progressive Field.

After taking the first game of the series earlier in the day, the Indians jumped out to a big lead in the first two innings, but the Braves kept their hopes alive by chipping away for several runs in the middle innings before using an improbable ninth inning, aided by an absolute meltdown from the Indians bullpen, to rally back with five runs in the final frame to steal away a victory from the Tribe.

The Braves moved to 10-10 with the victory and ended their four-game losing streak, while the Indians fell to 12-8 with their second home loss of the season. Cleveland’s four-game winning streak also came to an end in the embarrassing end results. Read More

Rodriguez and Anderson Up from Columbus, Two Sent Down

April 13, 2019 |

The Cleveland Indians announced on Saturday afternoon that pitchers Jefry Rodriguez and Cody Anderson have been recalled from Triple-A Columbus. Rodriguez is scheduled to make the start for the Indians on Saturday evening against Homer Bailey and the Kansas City Royals from Kauffman Stadium.

To make room on the roster for the pair, the Indians optioned reliever Jon Edwards and outfielder Jordan Luplow to Columbus. Read More

January 31, 2019 |

Major League Baseball will kick off the 2019 season with its earliest start ever (excluding international openers) as all 30 teams will take the field on March 28. Follow along with Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down the days until Opening Day 2019. – BT

Countdown to Opening Day – 56 days

There are plenty of opportunities for pitchers showing up to spring training with the Cleveland Indians. One of those arms vying for a chance in 2019 will be Cody Anderson, the big right-hander and number 56 who broke onto the scene in 2015, but has been on the shelf for the last two years while dealing with a long rehab from Tommy John surgery.

Tribe Avoids Arbitration with Four, Tenders Offers to Three Others

December 1, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians returned to routine offseason work following the announcement of the Yan Gomes trade with Washington on Friday, avoiding arbitration with four members of its 40-man roster while tendering contract offers to All-Stars Trevor Bauer and Francisco Lindor, as well as rehabbing pitcher Cody Anderson.

The Indians came to terms on Major League contracts for the 2019 season with relievers Nick Goody and Neil Ramirez, pitcher Danny Salazar, and infielder Eric Stamets. Reliever James Hoyt, who was acquired from the Houston Astros during the first week of July, was the only player eligible who was non-tendered, making him a free agent. Read More

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 56

February 1, 2018 |

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 56 days

The number 56 has seen plenty of usage in Cleveland Indians history, but oftentimes, it wound up on the backs of men who spent little time in town and bounced all around during their professional careers. Given that fact, it seems fitting that the first player to claim the digits as his own in both Indians and Major League history earned the moniker “Suitcase Bob” because of being a frequently relocated player in the golden days of baseball.

November 7, 2017 |

The offseason begins with a lot of minor moves for teams that oftentimes get lost in the shuffle of an otherwise busy fall and winter break from playing.

The Cleveland Indians completed some of their mandatory moves on Monday, adding several players to the 40-man roster, opening another spot by declining an option, and extending one very important qualifying offer. Read More
