The Kid is Alright – Naquin Impressive in First Month

In any baseball game there are moments where you can look back and say, if this did not happen, the other team would have won or if one player was absent from the lineup that the results would have been different. In a one run game, this can be even more extreme. This line of thinking won’t get you too far beyond causing excess regret during losses, but there was a distinct player...

4/27 Recap: Santana Leads Way in Tribe Win

Roster Update: The Indians third roster change of the season was as unsurprising as the first two. After Cody Anderson struggled with command for his third consecutive start (of four this season), he has been demoted to AAA Columbus in exchange for Kyle Crockett. Aiding this move is the fact that the Indians are off Thursday and Monday and can sneak by without a fifth starter until...

Indians will certainly miss Carlos Carrasco for the next month

Just as the Indians got good news on the injury front with Michael Brantley returning to the team on Monday night, things got much, much worse. On an odd play Sunday, Carlos Carrasco was covering first base when his left leg collapsed under him. By some miracle of foot placement, Carrasco got the out at first, but he only took a couple more steps once standing up before falling right...

Indians minor league recap: Clint Frazier just keeps hitting

And the RubberDucks keep losing, unfortunately. Only two Cleveland Indians farm teams played yesterday, and only one of them had a good day. Despite their fast start, the Akron RubberDucks cannot seem to get a winning streak going, as they dropped their fourth game in the past five days. The good news for the 'Ducks is that Clint Frazier is still doing Clint Frazier things, and...

Cleveland Indians: Who is Jose Ramirez?

Since Jose Ramirez debuted with the team in 2013 the Cleveland Indians have pieced together three consecutive seasons better than any other year since their 96-win season in 2007. In that time he has only played 180 games with 635 at-bats. So the Indians’ success is a bit more coincidental than I led on a few words earlier, but the point holds. That’s the type of player Ramirez...

Ball Played: One mistake is one too many for Salazar, Tribe
