Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook…
We are just about a quarter of the way into year two of the Michael Bourn era in Cleveland. When he signed a four year $48 million deal with the Indians in February of 2013 fans were very excited about the signing and felt that the Indians had filled center field and the leadoff spot in the order with a...
Heart and hustle can get a ballplayer a long way in the game of baseball. Nyjer Morgan and Josh Tomlin used the hustle to give the Indians the lead and the new-look bullpen might have created a heart attack before ... Read More
The Cleveland Indians are already following a strikingly similar path to the one they took in 2013.
Struggle through April, surge in May.
After a rough first month to the season, the Indians have finally found their stride a bit. Going 7-3 through the first 10 games in the month of May. Good enough for three consecutive series victories.
A rough start still has the Tribe sitting...
When Nyjer Morgan has a standout performance, you should expect unmatched exuberance afterward.
Sunday was no letdown.
Morgan went 3-for-4, hitting his first home run of the season in the eighth inning.
That was cause for celebration and a postgame radio interview with Tom Hamilton and Jim Rosenhaus full of loud noises and lots of laughs.
The "Plushdamentals" of having fun.
Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Cleveland prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.
Note, Low-A Lake County had a scheduled off day on Sunday.
Josh Martin (RP, CAR): 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K. Martin was near perfect again in relief as he struggled a little with...
The Cleveland Indians won't read too much into their most successful stretch of the season.
After opening this six-game trip with a winning series, the Indians look to continue their surge Tuesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Cleveland (18-20) closed April averaging 2.2 runs during an 0-6 trip against San Francisco and the Los Angeles Angels, but has averaged 4.7 while...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Josh Tomlin won his second straight start, Nyjer Morgan and Michael Bourn both drove in two runs and the Cleveland Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 on Sunday.
Tomlin (2-0), who pitched just once in the big leagues last season after right elbow surgery in 2012, allowed two runs and six hits over six innings in his second outing this year.
Morgan had an RBI...
Frustrating and underperforming at the plate, are the Cleveland Indians the unluckiest team in the majors thus far?
In 2013, the Cleveland Indians exceeded expectations, winning 92 games and earning their first playoff birth since 2007 thanks in large part to a pitching staff that performed far better than anticipated.
In 2014, thus far, the Cleveland Indians have disappointed some...
Joe Sewell of the Cleveland Indians strikes out twice in one game for the first time in his career. Washington Senators rookie Cy Warmoth is the pitcher. In a 14-year career, Sewell will have only one other multiple strikeout game.Read More
Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has been extremely patient with the slew of slumping players filling his roster this season. Quiet bats have remained at or near their spots in the lineup. Nick Swisher has stayed at the top of ... Read More
The Cleveland Indians will have a big decision to make in the off-season. It is likely priority #1 for the Indians and it involves what to do with their Opening Day starter for the past three seasons, ace Justin Masterson.
Masterson and the Indians experienced some turmoil this past off-season and were unable to work out a long term deal. The two sides settled on a 1 year deal...
AKRON, OH – The Altoona Curve managed just a single hit in six shutout innings against Akron starter Joe Colon (2-2, 2.50). The Akron bullpen continued to shut down the Curve offense by allowing just one more hit in Saturday's 2-0 victory at Canal Park.
In his six innings pitched, Colon recorded three walks, and two strikeouts with his single hit being the fewest allowed...
Cleveland Indians outfielder Nyjer Morgan is one of the more colorful players in baseball, gaining fame in 2011 with his Tony Plush alter ego in Milwaukee. After an awful year with the Brewers in 2012, Morgan spent 2013 in Japan before making it back to MLB this year with the Indians.
After his three-hit game on Sunday helped Cleveland beat Tampa Bay 6-5, Morgan was interviewed by...

Alright, we're 2-3 games short of a more official "quarter pole," but I'm getting the jump on it since there was no game to write about on Monday.
Near-elite starting pitching: Even in spite of a horrendous defense, this group has proven to be the best unit on the team (seventh-worst earned run average in baseball, but the third-best fielding independent...
