Indians Baseball Insider:
Dorssys Paulino (SS, Lake County Captains): 2-for-4, 1 K.
Paulino was one of two Captains to record two base hits on Saturday as the Tribe’s top hitting prospect notched two singles. You can go up and down the entire Indians’ farm system and chances are that you won’t find a more exciting player to follow this season than Paulino. Paulino has now gone 3-for-12 this season, and Saturday was obviously the first of what will be many multi-hit games in 2013. The young right-handed hitter just turned 18 years old in November, so keep in mind that he’s still very young for the Midwest League. Now, with that in mind, imagine if he continues to hit this year as he did last season with the AZL Indians and Scrappers. Paulino could then conceivably rapidly move through the system. It certainly will be one of the more intriguing storylines to follow this season.
Jacob Lee (SP, Carolina Mudcats): 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R/ER, 1 BB, 7 K.
Lee was impressive last season at Single-A Mahoning Valley as he went ...

AROUND THE WEB
CLEVELAND -- Terry Francona candidly admits he is directionally challenged.
He proved that before the Cleveland Indians home opener on Monday.
Francona lives two blocks from Progressive Field and walks to games. He had his first experience on the streets of Cleveland when he headed to the game at about 8:15 a.m.
I got lost three times, Francona said.
Franconas walk involves two...
So far, Trevor Bauer's adjustment to life in pro ball from UCLA is off to a much worse start than Keifer Sutherland's television career after 24. Have you seen Touch? Yeah, neither has anyone else. Making his Cleveland Indians debut after the Diamondbacks jettisoned Bauer (Trevor) for cents on the dollar, the 22-year-old pitcher turned in a performance that led me to believe...
The move was not performance based, but it seems Trevor Bauer could use some additional time at Triple-A before making the permanent jump to the big leagues. Bauer was scheduled to be optioned back to the minors when Chris Carrasco returned from suspension. That is happening this week, so Bauer was sent down.
Trevor Bauer was optioned to AAA Columbus after last night'...
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.
Joey Wendle: DH, Carolina Mudcats: 2-for-3, 2 R, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 1 K:
Mr. Wendle’s big offensive question marks are both his power potential and his ability to continue to hit as he starts...
Let's face it, being the Cleveland Indians already puts you behind the eight ball before your season even starts. So when the Tribe draws BOTH of last season's Cy Young Award winners in their first week, let's just say counting down magic numbers by stripping off the owner's clothes probably doesn't look to be in the cards any time soon.
But even Ricky "...
Zebulon, NC – On a perfect night for the 2013 home opener, the Carolina Mudcats took the field against the Winston Salem Dash and exploded for ten runs in a 10-1 blowout win.
Center fielder Tyler Naquin led off the bottom of the first inning by drawing a walk, and top prospect shortstop Francisco Lindor pushed a pitch through the infield to put runners at the corners. Designated...
The Cleveland Indians will activate first basemen/designated hitter Jason Giambi on Tuesday. Tuesday is the first day the Indians can activate the 42-year-old.
Giambi has played in the majors dating back to 1995 and is hoping to squeeze one more season out of his body.
When activated manager Terry Francona plans to get Giambi some action quickly.
“I don’t want him to sit a week...

Everybody Makes Mistakes
Young right-hander Zach McAllister went out and made some mistakes, but overall had a quality start stats-wise as he was only charged with two runs in six innings of work despite giving up four. However, the two unearned runs he gave up due to a fielding error at third base by Mike Aviles is not a new problem for McAllister as he struggled with pitching around...
Cleveland Indians catcher Lou Marson has a cervical-neck strain, the result of a home-plate collision.
Marson left in the fourth, one inning after Tampa Bay's Desmond Jennings collided with him in Saturday night's game.
Jennings tried to score from third on Matt Joyce's grounder, but Marson held on to third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall's throw for the out.
Player of the Game: Carlos Santana (5-for-5 with 2 2B, HR and 3 RBI)
They’re back! After getting shutout by dominant Tampa Bay pitching two consecutive nights, the Tribe had the last laugh on Sunday as the team shutout the Rays, 13-0. Indians starter Justin Masterson was brilliant through seven innings of work, giving up just two hits and picking up his second victory...
INDIANAPOLIS- After a low-scoring outing in their 2013 debut, the Clippers’ bats came alive in Indianapolis in game two of their series against the Indianapolis Indians.
Indians’ center fielder Alex Presley and shortstop Jordy Mercer started off the game with back to back doubles, giving Indianapolis a quick 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Indianapolis struck again...
Trevor Bauer's first career major league start with the Indians will forever be remembered as him being the first pitcher to walk the first four batters of a game since John Danks of the White Sox in 2009 and the first Indian since Bartolo Colon. However, Bauer's start was confirmation of everything we have heard about him: has a high ceiling, unpolished, raw,...
TAMPA - When going on a road trip, it’s easy to leave some necessary belongings behind. For the Indians, it looked like the team left their hitting shoes behind the Canadian border in Toronto, as Tampa Bay shutout the Tribe on Friday night, 4-0.
Cleveland hitters could not string together any sort of offense against Rays crafty left-hander Matt Moore. The southpaw blanked the Indians...
It is finally here. An exciting off season for the first time in a long time put a big circle on this date for months. The Home Opener. Our Indians holiday every year. (And while I realize it isn’t technically opening day, I’m using the phrase. It’s opening day for the city.)
Every year at this time we have hope for our beloved Indians. Hope that the season won’t be over...
