The Indians were held to just one hit through five innings but the rally all started with Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles both hit 2-run homers in the 6th inning. Aviles, entered the game due to an ejection of Asdrubal Cabrera. The seventh inning was lead off by a solo shot by Carlos Santana which tied the game. Lonnie Chisenhall drew a onw out walk and moved to second on the speedy Drew Stubb’s single. And then the hero of the day, Michael Bourn lined the first pitch to left field and gave Cleveland the go ahead run. The win went to Matt Albers (3-1) and Chris Perez bounced back from giving up a save against the Tigers on Monday to record his 18th save of the season.

Declining plate discipline is sinking Cabrera in 2013

The idea of Asdrubal Cabrera batting cleanup would have been a perfectly good one two years ago when the shortstop hit 25 home runs and owned a 119 weighted runs created plus (wRC+). In fact, it would have worked last year when Cabrera's home runs dipped to 16 but his wRC+ stayed solid at 113. This year, however, Cabrera's .293 on-base percentage, 93 wRC+, and general defensive...

MLB News: Terry Francona says Scott Kazmir needs rest

The Indians have lost five games in a row, and lost starting pitcher Corey Kluber to a strained finger earlier this week.

Around the Farm: August 12, 2013

Francisco Mejia (AZL Indians C): 2-4, R, HR, RBI: May not be the peak or elite performance of the night but it is close. Mejia has been really impressive considering he is only 17 years old in the AZL.  Eleven extra base hits in only twenty three games and a fairly low k-rate. Though dealing in small samples he has been far more impressive hitting from the right side than the...

Ryan Raburn: Extended Edition

Ryan Raburn signed a two-year, $4.85 million contract extension with a club option for 2016, the Indians announced on Wednesday.  Although Joe would disagree with me, this was an extension that needed to get done before Raburn tested the free agent waters this offseason.
