Found April 22, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
The Cleveland Indians announced today that SP Brett Myers has elbow tendonitis and a mild UCL sprain- RHP BRETT MYERS has been diagnosed w/R elbow tendonitis & mild UCL sprain.Will not throw for 2 weeks.Can resume throwing when symptom-free — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 22, 2013 The best case for the Indians? Myers is down for a couple weeks and returns healthy. The worst case? Pitchers needing Tommy John surgery are often initially diagnosed with UCL sprains. If the former is true in Myers’ case, his 21 and a third innings of work will have cost the Tribe well over $300,000 an inning, or $109,375 an out. Give or take a grand. Let’s hope that doesn’t come to pass. Corey Kluber has moved into Myers’ spot in the rotation. Kluber has pitched in 2 games for the Indians this season and has a 1-0 record and a 1.80 ERA. He has struck out 5 and walked none.

Around The Farm: April 23, 2013

Tyler Naquin (Carolina, CF) - 3-5, 2 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI - Naquin's been strong all season, but tonight he took it to another level as he picked up his second and third doubles of the season as well as his 9th and 10th RBI. Naquin is now batting .303.  While his OBP (.370) and tendency to strike out rather than walk (19 Ks to only 5 BBs) are a little worrisome, it is good to remember...

Fishing for Mudcats: A tale of two weeks

From the Bait Shop: It’s never good to go from first place-to-last place in a week, even if it’s only the second full week of the Carolina League season. The only good news for the Mudcats is that it is only the second week of the season, and the Muddies are only three games out of first place. Things will definitely need to improve quickly after they went 1-6 this week. The...

Indians 3, White Sox 2: Where there’s a Bro, there’s a Way

What a small world!  I can only imagine the fun those two might have at a birthday party together, what with all of the chewing tobacco and nubile feminine attention.  Sounds like a good time.  You know what else sounds like a good time?  Live...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Getting Healthy in Houston

The Indians were a reeling bunch heading to Houston this weekend. They had just been swept by the Boston Red Sox and were essentially dominated for three games on their home field. Thursday night’s loss was a microcosm of the series; it was one missed offensive opportunity after another. Hitting the road sometimes is a good thing, especially for a team like the Indians who are...
