Big League Sons Who Followed Dads’ Footsteps with the Tribe

June 21, 2020 |

Children of Major Leaguers often get a unique experience and view of the game of baseball from an early age while also being blessed with some choice genes and skill sets that make them all the more prepared to pursue the national pastime as their career of choice.

While plenty of kids of former big leaguers have failed to reach The Show despite giving it their best down on the farm, others have put together lengthy and successful careers as second generation players.

Six father-son tandems (Jim Bagby and Jim Bagby; Earl Averill and Earl Averill Jr.; Tito Francona and Terry Francona; Buddy Bell and David Bell; Dave Duncan and Shelley Duncan; and Cam Carreon and Mark Carreon) have had the privilege of representing the Cleveland Indians organization on the field during their respective careers.

Countdown to Opening Day – 23 days

The number 23 holds quite a bit of significance in the city of Cleveland, mainly due to the accolades of one of the best to ever wear it, LeBron James.

During the times that James suited up at the arena separated from Progresive Field by the Gateway Plaza, the Cleveland Indians were enjoying the best years of their own 23, Michael Brantley, who left the team via free agency last offseason after spending ten years on the diamond in the number for the Tribe.

Former Friends of the Feather Find New Homes and New Hopes

March 30, 2019 |

Quite a few familiar names and a few others not as well known have left the Indians organization since the final pitch of the American League Division Series sweep suffered by Cleveland at the hands of the Houston Astros.

In one busy offseason, the Indians saw new holes pop up all around the roster. Two corner outfielders, three more bench outfielders, the team’s starting designated hitter, first baseman, and catcher, as well as the two most important arms in the bullpen, all either left and signed elsewhere or were traded away, while the Tribe front office’s biggest guaranteed deal went to 37-year-old reliever Oliver Perez, who signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal in January with a vesting option for 2020.

Two Tribe Outfielders on the Move as Offseason Hits Continue

December 18, 2018 | | One Comment

Two outfielders with lasting legacies in Cleveland found new homes on Monday, as Michael Brantley and Rajai Davis signed free agent contracts with new clubs.

Brantley, a ten-year big leaguer who has spent his entire Major League career in Cleveland, will start a new chapter in his life as he came to terms on a two-year, $32 million agreement with the Houston Astros. Davis, who just completed his second one-year tour with the Indians, inked a minor league deal with the New York Mets with an invitation to spring training. Read More

Indians Decline to Extend Qualifying Offers to Pending Free Agents

November 2, 2018 |

The Cleveland Indians opted not to extend qualifying offers to any of the club’s pending free agents this offseason ahead of the deadline on Friday.

The Tribe’s long list of departing free agents including three names that merited some discussion, but instead, the Cleveland front office elected not to offer the one-year, $17.9 million tender offer to any of its veterans, including Cody Allen, Michael Brantley, and Andrew Miller. The significant financial commitment to any of the trio could have severely limited the Indians in the offseason, as funds appear tight and would have only become tighter if the contracts were accepted. By electing not to offer them the qualifying offer, the team forgoes an opportunity to receive draft pick compensation if they were to sign with other teams. Read More

Tribe Eliminated from ALDS in Embarrassing Fashion; Astros 11, Indians 3

October 8, 2018 |

A three-run seventh gave the Houston Astros their first lead of the day and a six-run eighth buried Chief Wahoo as the Cleveland Indians were swept out of the American League Division Series in an embarrassing 11-3 shellacking on Monday afternoon from Progressive Field.

A packed house in downtown Cleveland was the site of one of the more disappointing losses in the playoff history of the Indians, who put up a pitiful last stand at their remodeled gem at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario. A 2-1 lead afforded to starter Mike Clevinger was lost in the seventh as several throwing errors and the lethal bat of Indian killer Marwin Gonzalez put the Astros on top for good. The next two innings just threw more dirt on the grave of the 2018 season. Read More

Cleveland Rallies Together as Tribe Takes Astros in Houston

October 5, 2018 |

For the third season in a row, there will be meaningful October baseball for the Cleveland Indians organization. The American League Division Series will kick off Friday afternoon from Minute Maid Park where the Houston Astros will play host in their quest for a second straight World Series title.

For the Indians (91-71), it was an underwhelming season in an easy division as the American League Central crown was nearly awarded them in spring training. While the cakewalk schedule may have led to mixed results throughout the season, the offense still wowed with the third-most runs scored in the game (818, trailing only Boston and New York) while the team put up a strong +170 run differential. The bats struck out the fewest times in baseball and on the base paths the team picked off 135 bases to lead the Majors. The Indians play with extra motivation, looking to make up for their disappointing first round exit after losing a 2-0 lead a season ago in the ALDS against the New York Yankees. Read More

Tribe Wraps Up Regular Season with Four Games in KC with Royals

September 27, 2018 |

A long regular season will come to its conclusion this weekend as the Kansas City Royals host the Cleveland Indians in a four-game set from Kauffman Stadium.

The Indians (89-69) will look to get some players some rest and others a little bit of extra work as the team makes decisions on the makeup of the postseason roster while looking to head into the playoffs on a hot streak. A tough September has seen the Indians post just a 12-12 record as the team wrapped up the division early and has coasted through much of the season without a threat from the other four teams in the American League Central Division. With the exception of a 1-1 record in March, the Indians have played no worse than two games over .500 in any month of the season. Read More
