Missing Carmona Creates Deep Fifth Starter Battle

March 7, 2012 |

By Christian Petrila

Dear Fausto/Roberto,

Even if you manage to get out of the Dominican Republic sometime this season, good luck earning your job back. There is already stiff competition this spring, and the fact that you aren’t there to defend your starting spot doesn’t help your cause.

Fausto Carmona: The New Roberto Hernandez, Again

February 14, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

Yesterday Indians General Manager Chris Antonetti told Paul Hoynes and Dennis Manoloff that if the pitcher who was previously known as Fausto Carmona returns to the Indians he will indeed be known as Roberto Hernandez.

Interesting enough, Carmona has already played with a Roberto Hernandez. Huh?

Tribe Makes Safe Gambles With Sizemore and Carmona Options

October 30, 2011 |

The clock is still ticking on Grady Sizemore and Fausto Carmona, but according to MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian midnight will arrive on Monday. Bastian reported Saturday evening that the Indians intend to exercise Carmona’s option and decline Sizemore’s. Both decisions are gambles, but the team definitely had to play each gamble as safe as possible.

End Of Season Grades: Starting Pitchers

September 29, 2011 |

Today begins a two week, end of season grade and breakdown by each position. Certainly after the wild ride the 2011 Cleveland Indians took fans on, grades, projections and areas of improvement are all sought for 2012, with the goal being a playoff team next season. Today, we examine the mainstays of the 2011 starting rotation.

Justin Masterson
12-10, 3.21 ERA, 216 IP, 65 BB, 158 K’s
Grade: A

Masterson, who entered the year as a middle of the rotation starter, quickly grew into the staff ace by the summer months. I would be the first to admit when they acquired him from Boston for Victor Martinez, I thought it was a great mistake to make him a starting pitcher. He had already had success in the Boston bullpen and I thought he could be a clutch eighth or ninth inning arm. Certainly, growing in to a front of the rotation starter raises his value for now and years to come.

Carmona and Long Ball Takes Afternoon Tilt; Indians 4, White Sox 3

September 20, 2011 |

 

The Indians used three home runs and a solid pitching performance from Fausto Carmona to take the first game of a day, night doubleheader, by a score of 4-3. The win gets the Indians back to the .500 mark with just ten games remaining.

Jason Kipnis reached on a bunt single down the third base line in the bottom of the first inning before Travis Hafner homered to right field, giving the Indians an early 2-0 lead. It was Hafner’s 12th home run of the season. It was the first home run of the season for the Tribe against Gavin Floyd, but the first of more to come.

Doubleheader Preview: Chicago (74-78) vs. Cleveland (75-76)

The Indians had a chance to get back over the .500 mark yesterday but couldn’t get the job done.  David Huff had another rough outing, going just 2.2 innings and giving up seven hits, nine runs (five earned) and walking three batters.  Between Triple-A and Cleveland, Huff may be getting tired with all of the innings he has ended up throwing.
 

Cleveland Swept Out By Texas; Rangers 7, Indians 4

September 16, 2011 |

By Criag Gifford

The Cleveland Indians are playing for second place in the American League Central Division these days. The Texas Rangers, defending AL champions, are playing for a bit more as they are in a race for the AL West crown and postseason berth.

The disparity showed this week as the Tribe was swept in a four-game series in Arlington, Texas. The latest, and least embrasssing, came in a 7-4 defeat Thursday night.

Game Preview: Cleveland (72-74) vs. Texas (85-64)

September 15, 2011 |

 

By Matt Van Wormer

So far this year, the Indians have played the Texas Rangers nine times and they have only been able to win one of those contests.  Cleveland gets their last chance to take down the Rangers tonight as Fausto Carmona (6-14, 5.18, 1.39 WHIP) takes on Alexi Ogando (12-8, 3.71, 1.17 WHIP).
 
Last night, Shelley Duncan did all that he could to keep the Tribe in the game as he had three amazing catches in the early innings.  But the rules of baseball don’t allow the outfielder to actually go into the stands to catch balls.  Josh Hamilton hit a grand-slam into those stands in the fourth inning which saw the Rangers score eight runs to put the ballgame away.
 

Where Do The Indians Go From Here?

September 8, 2011 |

By Mike Brandyberry

After the three game sweep at the hands of the Detroit Tigers, the Indians find themselves at 70-70 and 9.5 games out of first place with only 22 games to play. Even the most eternal of optimists have to accept the fact that the Indians hopes of a Central Division crown and playoffs in October are over.

With 22 games remaining on the schedule the Indians find themselves “playing out the string,” in a season that had them in first place for most of the first half of the season and in contention for most of the second half. While the organization, players and fans alike have every reason to be disappointed, the Indians need to use the final stretch of the season to work toward the 2012 season, one that will come with much loftier goals than the 2011 version.
