Roster Update: Trevor Bauer was sent down immediately after his start on Wednesday, just like he was the first time as the Indians are trying to limit his number of days on the Major League roster so they will have him under team control longer. In his place, Ezequiel Carrera was claimed off waivers from the Phillies who were just in town. He will give the Indians more outfield depth with Michael Bourn on the DL and Nick Swisher day-to-day.
Player of the Game
Jason Kipnis won his second Player of the Game of the season with his highest score of the year (6.06). Kipnis singled and tripled to knock in four runs. His single was a suicide squeeze that scored a run, while his fielder's choice in the eighth tied the game. Mark Reynolds (2 run HR) and Drew Stubbs (4-5 with game winning single) also had games of note.
The bottom of the Tribe line-up set the table for the Indians first two runs as Yan Gomes and Drew Stubbs each singled. Jason Kipnis followed w...

On Saturday Kazmir recorded seven strikeouts and allowed just one walk against a Twins team that has struggled...
Indians reliever Vinnie Pestano could miss some time with elbow soreness due to tendinitis. While a few extra days of rest may be all that is needed, a trip to the DL might be a possibility.
Pestano says he's been dealing with tendonitis for years, but the ailment has never affected his ability to pitch effectively.
"It's something we've been monitoring the last...
With high-priced free agents Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher on the shelf for the last couple weeks and last few days respectively, one would think that Progressive Field was burning. Instead, that smoke you’re seeing is coming from the Tribe bats, who have stayed warm without their leadoff and cleanup hitters. Actually, they’ve heated up and diversified the contributions. Last...

Although there has been discussion about possibly sending Michael Bourn out for a rehab assignment, the Cleveland Indians' outfielder still has not been cleared to take batting practice. He has been hitting off a tee and playing catch, but live batting practice is still not an option. Bourn is trying to get back to the team that went out on a limb and signed him to a four...
Following two hideous outings, Indians reclamation project Scott Kazmir stifled Minnesota Twins batters to lead the team to a 7-3 victory in Cleveland on Saturday afternoon. The 29-year-old Kazmir (1-1, 6.28 ERA), who easily outperformed Trevor Bauer, Carlos Carrasco and Daisuke Matsuzaka to become Cleveland’s fifth starter, vacated the mound as a winner for the first time since...

Scott Kazmir has gone nearly three years without a victory. His current teammates, meanwhile, have done nothing but win lately.
With five straight wins, the Indians hope Kazmir can help continue that run Saturday against the visiting Minnesota Twins.
Cleveland (13-13) has been firing on all cylinders during its streak, producing 46 runs and 12 homers while batting .357 despite...
This is a game where even when it felt like we were going to lose, they still win. That’s just the way this team has been rolling this past week. Center fielder Drew Stubbs had a career night going 4-for-5 with three doubles including a walkoff RBI double in the 10th inning. Justin Masterson bobbed and weaved and struggled with his command all night, but still gave the Tribe...
Life after the draft changes considerably for a player, but Lake County Captains’ starter Dylan Baker knows that baseball is just a game.
Baker, 21, was taken by the Cleveland Indians in the 5th round of the 2012 draft. The Alaska native attended Western Nevada Community College, where he went 13-0 with a 1.91 ERA and 126:46 K:BB ratio.
Last season, Baker appeared in eight...

Summer is in the air and Jake, Mike and Hayden are back to discuss the warming weather and warming bats in Cleveland.
Cy Young winners are dropping like flies at the hands of Indians hitters as the Tribe is now working their way back to the .500 mark and staying in the AL Central race. The offense is scoring runs left and right while the starting pitching appears to be settling...
ZEBULON- The Carolina Mudcats and Frederick Keys decided nine innings wasn’t enough time to decide a winner so they went extra innings. Unfortunately, the Mudcats were on the short end of a 4-3 loss to the Keys in 11 innings on Friday night at Five County Stadium.
After both teams went scoreless since the sixth inning, the Keys finally broke through in the eleventh inning with...
