Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 36

February 20, 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 – 36 days

On the Cleveland Indians’ website, new reliever A.J. Cole has been assigned the number 36, after formerly being listed in the number 69 prior to being designated for assignment less than a month after the club claimed him off of waivers from the New York Yankees this winter. A non-roster spring training invite for the Tribe, Cole will have a chance to win a spot in the team’s bullpen.

Prior to Cole being assigned the number, Jesus Aguilar occupied 36 for the Indians for a few cups of coffee over three seasons from 2014 through 2016, but he surrendered his claim to the digits when Cleveland designated him for assignment ahead of the 2017 season before turning into a legitimate slugger for the Milwaukee Brewers. Another player with high hopes, but few chances with the Tribe while wearing the same 36, Yandy Diaz has followed a similar path as Aguilar, dumped to the Tampa Bay Rays as part of the three-team trade that sent Edwin Encarnacion to Seattle and both Carlos Santana and Jake Bauers to Cleveland.

Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 36 – Gaylord Perry

February 21, 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 – 36 days

Jesus Aguilar occupied the number 36 for the Indians for a few cups of coffee over three seasons from 2014 through 2016, but he surrendered his claim to the digits when Cleveland designated him for assignment during last offseason and he joined up with the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Now, it is Yandy Diaz‘s number and the third baseman finds himself in a similar predicament to Aguilar’s preceding him – playing time is scarce for young players in Cleveland.

Production from three-sixes in Indians history has historically been minimal, with Aguilar’s years with the number exceeding the majority of those to wear it before him. A total of 51 players have reportedly worn the number for the Tribe in regular season action, but only a handful have spent more than a few seasons representing it on the field. One of the best to do so, without argument, was Gaylord Perry, who joined the Indians organization following the 1971 season. Read More
