Indians Baseball Insider:
Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.
Matt Packer (Akron, SP) – W (6-5), 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R (earned), 3 BB, 4 K, 1 HBP
On a rough night in the organization (like Friday night), it can often be hard to find a feature-worthy performance, but Packer’s six solid innings in Akron certainly qualify. While the first inning was not exactly a thing of beauty and the pitch count seemed to be piling up on him pretty quickly on him early in the game, he recovered quite nicely to put up six solid innings before turning over the Canal Park mound to closer Jose Flores (The game was the first half of an uncompleted doubleheader – the second game was rained out – and thus was only scheduled for seven innings).
Chun Chen (Columbus, 1B) – 3-4, 2 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI – Chen picks up the Clippers only run of their first eight innings on a line drive solo h...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Cleveland Indians today announced that they have selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Joe Martinez and called him up from Triple-A Columbus to Cleveland. To make room on the 25-man roster, right-handed pitcher Matt Langwell was optioned to Columbus. The Indians had less than 40 players on the 40-man roster, so no move was required to clear space for Martinez.
Some things just don’t mix well, and that’s been the case when it comes to the Cleveland Indians and minor league signings these past few years.
Regardless of circumstances, it seems like the Indians always find themselves doing some heavy bargain shopping in the months that precede the start of Spring Training.
At times, these minor moves have paid off.
For reference, look no...
The Indians made official this afternoon what we all knew for a few days: They haverecalled starting pitcher Trevor Bauer while sending Nick Hagadone back to Columbus. They also brought up Carlos Carrasco to be their 26th man for Friday’s doubleheader.
From the team:
“Bauer (#27) is making the start in game 1 today of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox in US Cellular...
When the Cleveland Indians drafted Jason Kipnis out of Arizona State in the second round of the 2009 amateur draft, he was projected as an extra outfielder-type prospect with average tools. Now, just four years later, Kipnis is the everyday second baseman for the Indians and looks to be one of the team’s true building blocks for the future.
Upon being drafted in 2009, Kipnis began...
The Indians have announced outfielder Michael Bourn will be placed on the 3 day Paternity list while LHP Nick Hagadone has been called up from AAA Columbus to take Bourne’s spot on the roster.
“Bourn, 30, is batting .299 (69-231) with 12 doubles, one triple, 2 homers, 15 RBI and 33 runs scored across 56 games this season. He also ranks 2nd on the team with 11 stolen bases (11...
One of the best things about baseball is the Traditional Doubleheader. Two games played back to back. Two games for the price of one. This Traditional Doubleheader is the second of the season for the Tribe, but first on the road in Chicago. The Indians first game will begin at 5:10 at U.S. Cellular Field. A day that has Chicago sports fans is absolute heaven as everyone and their...
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And when the opposition gives up back-to-back walks in the eighth inning of a tie game, go for the jugular.
Such was the approach used by Akron Aeros third baseman Giovanny Urshela, who cracked a two-out, RBI single to center field in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday night, lifting the Aeros to a 3-2 victory over the Altoona...
Over the past three games, the Indians have come back from five down after the first, three down in the ninth and one down in the sixth to beat a downtrodden White Sox team. The Tribe’s ability to continually battle and grind out good at bats has paid of immensely late in games.
Resiliency while applicable to this microcosm of a series is also applicable in...
It's been over 18 years since the Cleveland Indians swept a four-game series from the Chicago White Sox.
The Indians may have to get the best of Chris Sale on Sunday to end that drought, but that wasn't a problem in their last matchup with Chicago's ace.
Since losing a season-high eight straight, the Indians (43-38) have gone in the opposite direction by winning 13 of...
With the gaze of Cleveland sports fans firmly on the Cavaliers and the NBA draft, the Indians picked a good night to play uninspired baseball.
Early on, it looked as though Corey Kluber (6-5, 4.16 ERA) would keep the Indians in the game and add another strong performance to his surprising summer. That came to a screeching halt in the fifth inning when Kluber allowed five runs. The...
Nick Swisher hit a solo homer to cap a four-run ninth inning against Addison Reed Friday night, lifting the Cleveland Indians to a 9-8 victory over the Chicago White Sox for a sweep of the longest doubleheader by time for two nine-inning games.
After pounding Chicago 19-10 in the opener in a game that lasted 4 hours, 2 minutes, the Indians came through in the end to take the nightcap...
CHICAGO -- Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher drove in the tie-breaking run for the second straight game as the Indians beat the Chicago White Sox for the third time in 24 hours, 4-3 Saturday afternoon.
With the win, the Indians have won nine of their last 12 games and trail the Detroit Tigers by 1.5 games in the American League Central, pending the outcome of Detroit vs. Tampa...
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jason Kipnis reached base six times and scored four runs, Ryan Raburn homered and drove in four, and the Cleveland Indians rallied from five down early on to pound the Chicago White Sox 19-10 in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Friday.
The Indians matched a season high for runs. They also set one with eight doubles while falling one hit shy of their season best with 21...
Player of the Game
Jason Kipnis won the day as a whole with a combined score of 10.68, but he didn't win the Player of the Game in either game individually. Michael Bourn won the honors in game two as the fire starter the Indians needed. He scored the first run of the game in the first inning and the tying run in the ninth. In all, he had three singles, two runs and an RBI...
A wild game it was at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago on an overcast Friday evening. It was far from a pitchers’ duel in the first game of a doubleheader between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox, as the two teams combined to score 29 runs.
The Cleveland Indians drove home 19 of those 29 runs thanks in large part to every one of their batters logging at least one hit....
