Gabriel Arias

Clevinger on the Move as Indians and Padres Match Up for Nine-Player Deal

August 31, 2020 |

The forecast in San Diego on Monday includes a little bit of Sunshine.

The Indians and Padres matched up for their third deadline deal in as many seasons on Monday as the two clubs swapped nine players, with Cleveland’s Mike Clevinger serving as the centerpiece of the deal.

Cleveland sends the right-handed starting pitcher, along with outfielder (and former San Diego State product) Greg Allen and a player to be named later, to San Diego for a haul of six players from the prospect-laden Padres, which is now cashing in on years of suffering for a big push to reach the new playoff format birthed out of the global pandemic. Coming to the Indians are Major League catcher Austin Hedges, outfielder Josh Naylor, and right-handed pitcher Cal Quantrill, along with three of San Diego’s top minor league prospects – shortstop Gabriel Arias, pitcher Joey Cantillo, and shortstop Owen Miller.

Haase Leads A-Ball All-Stars in Minor League Round-up

June 7, 2014 |

This week the All-Star rosters were named for both the Carolina League and Midwest League. The Carolina Mudcats had three players named to the Carolina League team in LHP Ryan Merritt, SS Erik Gonzalez and OF Anthony Gallas. Merritt a left-handed starting pitcher is tied for the league lead in wins with fellow teammate Shawn Morimando with six. He leads the league with a 1.71 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP. Shortstop Erik Gonzalez, who has missed sometime with a finger injury, is sixth in the league with a .309 batting average. Gonzalez has 15 extra base hits, 26 runs batted in along with eight stolen bases and is a tremendous defender. Outfielder Anthony Gallas got off to a tremendous start to the season but has cooled off some lately. Gallas leads the league in doubles with 21 in only 54 games. Gallas sports a .279 average with seven homeruns and 27 runs batted in.

Despite Lake County struggling and sitting in last place, the Captains have three players representing them in the Midwest League All-Star game in RHP Robbie Aviles, RHP Jordan Milbrath and C Eric Haase. Aviles has been in another world leading the league with a 1.45 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. His ERA is so good the next closest pitcher is more than a half a run higher at 2.02. Aviles control has been outstanding giving up only seven walks in 56 innings pitched. Jordan Milbrath has been a pleasant surprise as a 35th round draft pick in last year’s first year player draft. Milbrath has a 2.92 ERA and has only allowed 42 hits in his 52.1 innings pitched. Eric Haase is third in the league in homeruns with 10 despite only playing in 37 games on the year. Haase along with the 10 homeruns has four triples on the year helping him to lead the league with a .522 slugging percentage.

Minor League Roundup Full of Streaks

April 26, 2014 |

It’s been a weak of streaks throughout the Indians minor league system, starting with the most impressive streak in Carolina Mudcats shortstop Erik Gonzalez, who has a hit in sixteen straight games. Not far behind is the Columbus Clippers catcher Roberto Perez who has a hit in 12 straight games. Clippers infielder Jose Ramirez has a streak of a different kind going. Ramirez has reached base in all 19 games that Columbus has played this season. How about a pitcher with a streak? Carolina Mudcats left-handed pitcher Ryan Merritt has not allowed a run in 16 straight innings and has a ridiculous 0.37 earned run average on the season in 24.1 inning pitched. Finally a negative streak to talk about, the Lake County Captains have lost their last six games in a row. Remarkably they already had an 8 game losing streak prior to the current one.

Read more about the streaks, and lots more action this past week in the Indians minor League system.
