COLUMBUS- The Clippers shut out the Louisville Bats Tuesday night at Louisville Slugger Field, 3-0. A strong start by Josh Tomlin and teh Columbus bullpen kept the Bats off the board while the Clippers offense gradually added to their lead. Tomlin pitched five innings in his first start with the Clippers since being optioned from the Cleveland Indians. Tomlin allowed one hit during his outing and fanned four batters to pick up his first win. The Clippers jumped on the board early in the fourth inning for the first time. Right fielder Jeremy Hermida came up to bat with one out in the fourth and drilled a line drive to right field for a double. Hermida was ushered into home plate during the next at bat when first baseman David Cooper hit a ground ball bouncing out to center field. Columbus continued to keep their lead through the next three innings and added to it in the eighth. With one out, Ezequiel Carrera singled on an infield grounder, proceeding to steal second with Tim Fedroff ...

Second Thoughts: Swisher, Bourn have not been up to par

Over the winter, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher were given a combined $106 million (with the possibility of up to $132 million) to play for the Indians for the next 4-6 years. While they have both certainly helped the team more than hurt it in year one, neither has quite performed at their standard level of production. In fact, one could argue that each of them is having one...

Around The Farm: August 28, 2013

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.  Jordan Smith (CF, Carolina): 3-for-5, 2 R, 2 2B, 1 RBI, 1 SO All year, people like me were just hoping to see a little power out of Smith.

It's the turning point at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario

There comes a time in every Cleveland Indians’ baseball season when you can look back and say, “that was when Tribe’s ship sunk.” I’ve done it every year that I can remember here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, and unfortunately, it always happens before the Indians can hoist up that World Series trophy. In good years, you can point to the late innings of a game...

How A Shoulder Injury May Have Improved Swisher’s Swing

We don’t really have full information on the shoulder injury that has been bothering Nick Swisher this season. We do know that it’s bothered him off and on, that he’s missed a handful of games, and that he’s had a cortisone shot recently. And from a results standpoint, we know that his power is down… […]

Indians' Ryan Raburn nearing return

Yesterday we reported that Cleveland Indians utility man Ryan Raburn was hoping to avoid a stint on the disabled list as a result of his leg injuries. Raburn showed progress while working out prior to yesterday's game, and manager Terry Francona is now optimistic that the veteran will return to the team's lineup in the near future, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com...

Cleveland Indians' Scott Kazmir is better than you think

Scott Kazmir has seven wins and six losses. Not that impressive when you first look at it. But when you do, you can't truly understand how good he's been in his first full season since 2010. In his last ten starts, he has surrendered two runs or less six times. In those ten starts, he's whiffed 49 in 56 innings, and walked only 17. Considering Kazmir was in Sugar...

Second Thoughts Game #132: Indians 2, Braves 3

Pre-Game Commentary Without dwelling too much on another disappointing performance by the Indians’ offense on Tuesday, I’ll just say that entering the series this is the game that seemed most winnable. Justin Masterson takes the hill against Paul Maholm, who recently returned from the disabled list and has just a 4.45 ERA on the season. With a series against Detroit and Baltimore...

Indians' offense falls flat against Atlanta

Cleveland's Danny Salazar was trying to match fellow rookie Alex Wood. The Indians struggled at the plate, however, and Salazar's night ended after 77 pitches through four innings. ''We're just in a position with him right now where, if he has long innings, we owe it to him and to the organization to keep an eye on him,'' Cleveland manager Terry Francona...

Indians squander chances, lose to Braves 3-2

The Cleveland Indians are off to a rough start in what could be one of their most crucial stretches of the season. Chris Johnson drove in the winning run with a two-out single in the ninth inning and the Atlanta Braves edged the Indians for the second night in a row, 3-2 on Wednesday. Mike Aviles homered and drove in both Cleveland runs, but the Indians squandered too many chances...

Contending Tribe seems content to stand pat

"My personality is completely genuine, bro!" It's been a frustrating month of August for the Indians. The offense has been dire during these dog days, with every mistake the Tribe makes magnified by the lack of production at the dish. As the calendar turns to September, Cleveland seems poised on a razor's edge of contention that could slice them a good...
