The Top of Indians Minors not Major League Quality

June 12, 2013 |

By Christian Petrila

The Columbus Clippers currently house the MiLB’s greatest collection of “4-A” players.

Definition: Players who always excel in AAA, but never live up to expectations in the Majors.

In fact, there are so many 4-A guys that had they produced well in Cleveland, the Indians’ struggles of late could be a totally different story.

Roster Moves on Monday the First of Many

March 27, 2013 |

By Christian Petrila

One of the busiest offseasons in Indians history is winding down, but the roster shuffling is far from over for Indians General Manager Chris Antonetti.

The Indians announced their Opening Day 25-man roster on Monday, but anyone could see that the roster the team announced would be far from final.

The first order of business for Antonetti is to figure out how to add Scott Kazmir and Ryan Raburn to the 40- and 25-man rosters.

Kazmir was announced as the team’s fifth starter on Monday, but he still isn’t on either roster. However, he likely won’t be officially added to the roster until Apr. 6–the day of his first scheduled start.

Some Players Running Out of Options

March 20, 2013 |

By Christian Petrila

Every team has those guys who are out of options and quickly running out of time. For the Indians, that list is made up of David Huff, Ezequiel Carrera and Chris McGuiness.

David Huff is the southpaw wild card this spring for the Indians. At 28-years-old, he’s already lost out on the fifth rotation spot. Huff was a first-round pick back in 2006 and has been with the Indians his whole career. However, it’s an uphill battle if he hopes to stay with the team a little longer.

Huff’s numbers have never been overly impressive. In his 2009 rookie campaign, he did lead the team with 11 wins. Unfortunately for him, he also had a 5.61 ERA in 128.1 innings. His 2010 season was a disaster. He was a mere 2-11 with a 6.21 ERA. The lowest point of the season was on May 29, when in a game against the New York Yankees, Alex Rodriguez drilled a line drive square off of Huff’s head. After an unspectacular 2011 season, Huff got another shot to prove his worth in the rotation as 2012 wound down. He improved his resume a little bit, going 3-1 with a 3.38 ERA.

Carrera Running Out of Options with Tribe

March 9, 2013 |

During Spring Training the DTTWLN staff will profile and examine the coaches and players that make up and are vying to be part of the 2013 Cleveland Indians—A Team With A New Direction. Today, we examine one of the players on the 40-man roster that is in a roster battle to earn a spot on the 25-man roster.

By Christian Petrila

On the Indians roster this spring, Ezequiel Carrera falls under the category of, “out of options, possibly out of time.”

Carrera, the speedy outfielder acquired by the Indians in 2010 from the Seattle Mariners for Russell Branyan, enters Spring Training at a young 25-years-old. However, that may not necessarily be an advantage due to the fact that he is already out of minor league options.

“We absolutely love him, but I don’t want to start talking about the roster yet because someone else could read something into it,” Indians Manager Terry Francona said this week. “If everyone stays healthy, we’re going to have some difficult decisions. And one decision may lead to another because we have to make our roster fit.”

Carrera Could Fill Void that Has Been Left Field

October 30, 2012 |

After a disappointing 2012 Cleveland Indians season the organization is at a crossroads to decide how to progress with the organization, not just for the 2013 season but several seasons to come. Decisions involve ownerships, the front office, managerial and coaching decisions and the players. For the month of October, we’ll look at how the Indians ended up in their current predicament, but most importantly, Where Do the Indians Go From Here. Today, we examine a player who is out of minor league options, meaning they must be on the 25-man roster.

Where have you gone Coco Crisp?

Not since the Indians traded the outfielder with the funny name to Boston in 2005 has the Tribe had a solid force in left field.  Names like Shelley Duncan, Johnny Damon, Trevor Crowe, Austin Kearns, Ben Francisco, Jason Michaels and David Dellucci have all been given regular playing time in left since the Indians traded Crisp and all of the players underperformed or underachieved for the Tribe.  Crisp batted .300 with 16 homeruns and 15 stolen bases in ‘05 and no left fielder has come even close to matching that production since.

“We have to examine what’s transpired, not just this year, but where we are organizationally moving forward because the mix we had wasn’t working,” Indians General Manager Chris Antonetti said.  “We need to figure out ways to be better.”

Tribe Knocks Chicago Into Second Place In Division; Indians 6, White Sox 4

September 27, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Every season has gambles and Wednesday evening the White Sox gambled when manager Robin Ventura rearranged his rotation, pushing Jake Peavy and Chris Sale back a day and into the weekend series.

Time will tell if the gamble will pay off, but the short term results were sour when spot starter Hector Ramirez could not survive four innings and the White Sox were forced to use six relief pitchers while losing a back and forth contest to the Tribe, 6-4. Justin Masterson was less than stellar, allowing three runs in the first inning, but gave the Indians enough for the offense to come back in the game.

Cleveland drew first blood in the top of the first inning when Jason Kipnis walked with one out. After Asdrubal Cabrera popped out to second base, Kipnis stole second and Carlos Santana followed with a walk of his own. Russ Canzler kept his hot September going by lacing a single to center field to score Kipnis and give the Tribe a 1-0 lead.
