Indians Activate Alonso, Option Allen, Sign Rzepczynski to Minor League Pact

June 18, 2018 |

The transactions page on Indians.com remained active on Monday as the Tribe made three roster moves directly affecting the organization.

Cleveland activated first baseman Yonder Alonso from the Family Medical Emergency list, returning him to the 25-man roster. To make room, as expected, outfielder Greg Allen was optioned to Triple-A Columbus.

In separate moves and maybe somewhat unsurprisingly, the Indians have comes to terms on a minor league contract with former Tribe southpaw Marc Rzepczynski. The 32-year-old will report to Columbus, looking to find his old form that made him one of the top matchup artists in baseball not too long ago. Outfielder Melky Cabrera, who was designated for assignment on Thursday, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Columbus, but as a veteran with plenty of years of service, he has declined the assignment and elected to become a free agent.

Tribe Activates Guyer, Designates Cabrera for Assignment

June 14, 2018 |

The Indians resolved a difficult roster move on Thursday morning when they activated outfielder Brandon Guyer from the 10-day disabled list and designated Melky Cabrera for assignment.

Guyer had been on the disabled list since May 23 (retroactive to May 20) while dealing with a left cervical strain suffered on May 19 in Houston when he was elbowed by a fan while pursuing a foul ball into the stands. His progress through a rehab assignment was slowed when he was hit by a pitch on the hand on Sunday while playing with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers. Read More

June 10, 2018 |

Corey Kluber gave the Indians eight innings of quality two-run baseball and he was backed by some big efforts in the Cleveland lineup in a 9-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon.

Kluber’s pursuits of a third Cy Young Award continued on Sunday in the series finale from Comerica Park, where the 32-year-old right-hander handled the Tigers with relative ease, pitching effectively in a balanced attack on the mound. His big effort gave him his tenth win of the season against two losses in 14 starts, taking over the American League lead in victories while matching Washington’s Max Scherzer for the Major League lead. It marked the 14th straight quality start this season for Kluber. Read More

Kluber Leads Tribe to Fifth Straight Win in Sweep of Sox; Indians 9, White Sox 1

May 30, 2018 |

Corey Kluber threw six shutout innings and the Indians bats were alive and well again as Cleveland completed the sweep of Chicago with a 9-1 socking of the White Sox on Wednesday afternoon from Progressive Field.

The Indians finally appear to be locked in on all cylinders and have conquered the bullpen problem in recent days by simply scoring so many runs that nearly all leads handed over by the starting rotation have been safe. The Tribe would follow that design on Wednesday, jumping out to a big lead in the first few innings while allowing Kluber to cruise to his eighth win of the season with relative ease. Read More

Three Late Runs Give Astros Series Win Over Tribe; Astros 3, Indians 1

May 20, 2018 |

Lance McCullers took a perfect game into the sixth inning and a pair of big extra base hits in the late innings powered the Houston Astros to a 3-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday night.

While the Indians avoided some of the more productive members of the dominant Astros starting rotation, McCullers reminded the Tribe that he is just as valuable a part of that pitching mix as the rest. Making his second career start against Cleveland, he was unhittable for much of the night and was locked in an entertaining pitchers’ duel with the Indians’ Carlos Carrasco, one decided late on some big extra base hits for the ‘stros.
