Jose Lopez Designated for Assignment

Following the likes of Johnny Damon and Derek Lowe, veteran infielder — and one-time clean-up hitter — Jose Lopez has been designated for assignment by the Cleveland Indians. Lopez was hitting .249 with 13 doubles, four home runs and 28 runs batted in during 66 games with the Indians. He was designated for assignment earlier in the season, but cleared waivers and was later assigned...

Cleveland Indians fan asks WHAT IF we didn’t suck?!

It’s that time of year again when the Cleveland Indians completely fall apart and this fan wonders WHAT IF?

GM Antonetti backs manager Acta

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti expressed support for manager Manny Acta and his coaching staff following the least successful trip in the franchise's 112-year history. Cleveland went 0-9 at Minnesota, Kansas City and Detroit, ending the trip with a 10-8 loss to the Tigers on Sunday when All-Star closer Chris Perez gave up five runs with two outs in the 10th inning....

Late-inning meltdown leads to Indians' 11th loss in a row

Through most of their roller coaster season, the Cleveland Indians have been able to count on two areas of the team to perform consistently: the defense and the back of the bullpen. Both areas collapsed Tuesday night, and Cleveland lost its 11th game in a row. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, second baseman Jason Kipnis and first baseman Casey Kotchman all made errors in the last three...

Indians designate Jose Lopez for assignment

Infielder Jose Lopez was designated for assignment by the Indians after batting .249 with four home runs and 29 RBI in 66 games this season. Right-handed pitcher Frank Herrmann was recalled from Class AAA Columbus, where he had a 2-2 record with seven saves in nine chances and a 4.28 ERA in 39 appearances. Herrmann had allowed 23 earned runs in 48 1/3 innings pitched.

Indians disappointing ’12 season is emblematic of a disappointing era: Part 1/5

Follow @ClevelandDTR I’m frustrated.  Really frustrated.  Quite possibly the most frustrated I’ve ever been with the Indians.  That’s saying a lot considering how many disappointing years Indians fans have had to deal with, especially in the last five years. In 2008, the Indians looked like legitimate World Series contenders coming off of a 2007 season where they were only...

Twins 7 Indians 5: Finding New Ways To Lose Every Night

It is absolutely incredible what is going on with my beloved Indians right now. Even if you hired a Hollywood screen writer to tell the story of the now 11-game losing streak, he or she couldn’t come up with the storyline of these last three games. Sunday’s implosion was one for the ages, as the Indians scored three times in the tenth inning, only to watch the Detroit Tigers...

Series Preview: Twins at Indians 8/6 - 8

After a third consecutive sweep, this one to the Detroit Tigers, the Indians postseason hopes have been officially demolished. As we move into "there's always next year" mode, focus should switch to the young players like recent call-up Ezequiel Carrera and future all-star Jason Kipnis. It will be interesting now to see how Corey Kluber and Chris Seddon pitch for...

8/7 Game Recap: Twins 7 - Indians 5

Roster Update: The Indians added Frank Herrmann to their overworked bullpen. To make room for him, they designated Jose Lopez for assignment. Player of the Game Shelley Duncan did not have any errors as tongiht's DH, so he is today's Player of the Game. Not only was Duncan error-less, but he also hit a 2 run home run in the second inning, giving him a score of 4.40...

Not only that Jackson has 19 doubles and 7 triples on the season and an OBP of .409...

What You Need to Know: Tuesday, August 7 by Daniel Rathman

The Monday Takeaway The Indians must have been relieved when they sent the Twins down in order, then loaded the bases with nobody out in the bottom of the first inning, after returning home from a brutal, 0-9 road trip. Cleveland had fallen to 50-58 on the season, a likely insurmountable 9 ½ games behind the first-place White Sox, but at least the pain of Sunday afternoon’s...

Box Score: Tigers 10, Indians 8 (10 inn.)

The losing streak has reached nine, though this one had some serious style points. The Indians against all odds prevented a leadoff triple from ending the game in the bottom of the ninth by intentionally walking Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder to load the bases following a strikeout of Omar Infante by Josh Tomlin. A 3-2-3 double play sent the game into extras, where Travis Hafner...
