LOUISVILLE, KY – The Columbus Clippers used five pitchers to secure a 5-0 shutout win over the Louisville Bats on Wednesday night. The victory gave the Clippers the series win, 2-1.
The headline before the game was that Clippers starting pitcher to be, Corey Kluber, was recalled back up to the majors. Kluber was set to start on the mound for the Clippers on Wednesday night, but the change gave the spot-start to Clippers righty reliever Matt Langwell.
Langwell pitched the first three innings, only giving up two hits and recording three strikeouts.
The Clippers bats stayed quiet through the first third of the game. Louisville Bats pitcher Armando Galarraga had four strikeouts through the third inning—only giving up one hit in the process.
The Clippers scoreless streak of 14 innings finally came to an end in the top of the fourth.
Clippers second baseman Luis Hernandez started the inning off with a single to right field. Hernandez was followed by Clippers left fielder Matt Carson who s...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Indians today announced that catcher Lou Marson was placed on the 15 day DL with a cervical neck strain. He has been suffering since his collision at home plate against the Rays on Saturday.
The Indians recalled C YAN GOMES from AAA Columbus and selected the contract of CA OMIR SANTOS from AAA Columbus and added him to the Major League roster.
The double move was necessary because...
It has been some time since the Indians have had a hitter with such promise pass through their lower levels. There have been some good young prospects to pass through Low-A Lake County over the years, but none with the upside and potential to impact a game with the bat like that of shortstop Dorssys Paulino.
So much so, Paulino could be the best young hitting prospect to come into...

It happened in the top of the fourth inning after Cano's home run gave the Yankees a 7-0 lead. Carrosco threw...

The good news?
It’s only been eight games. Nothing is decided in eight games.
The bad news?
Those eight games have raised more questions than they’ve answered about the Indians’2013 pitching staff. The Indians are tied with the mighty Houston Astros for the most runs given up in the American League. The team has surrendered 48 runs in eight games, good for 6.0 per game. You...
Cleveland, OH — After working out of early trouble in the first, Cleveland Indians starter Carlos Carrasco gave up seven runs before being ejected in the top of the fourth as the Indians lost their second straight game to the Yankees, 14-1.
After Ichiro Suzuki grounded into a double play in the top of the second, Eduardo Nunez and Lyle Overbay hit back-to-back singles off Carrasco...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Indians manager Terry Francona hopes Carlos Carrasco can duck another suspension.
Carrasco, who just finished serving a five-game suspension for throwing at a player in 2011, is facing further discipline after he was ejected in the fourth inning Tuesday for hitting New York's Kevin Youkilis in the left shoulder -- one pitch after giving up a two-run homer to...

By now, every Indians fan has heard of Cleveland Indians shortstop and top prospect Francisco Lindor.
Its kind of hard not to know who he is since he has taken the organization by storm since he was drafted in June of 2011. In almost two years time, Lindor has established himself as the heir apparent at shortstop for the Indians and one...

I am not one to panic. Especially with 150-plus games left on the schedule. The hot starts for the Tribe the last two years resulted in nothing. But obviously you would like to see the lesser parts of your team do well early to give them confidence as the season starts to build.
It was no secret that the weak link of the 2013 Cleveland Indians would be their starting rotation. All...
I can’t help but shake my head while sitting here during the opening home series here at Progressive Field.
The Cleveland Indians are 3-5 and two games out of first on April 10th, and to listen to the general populace that surround the Indians, you would think that the season ended yesterday after another 100-loss season.
Sure, things could be better. The pitching staff looks like...
Not Exactly How I Planned To Start The Season
At 6:30 when I was on my way to Progressive Field for my first live Indians game of the season, I couldn’t be more excited. By 9:30 that night, however, when the Yankees were beating my beloved Tribe 14-1 and “Let’s go Yankees!” chants from the New York fans in attendance was nauseatingly audible above the normal chatter of the...

That is the time that has passed since Cleveland Indians right-handed starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco last made a start in a Major League game.
That last start came on August 3, 2011 when he went 7.0 strong innings allowing three runs against the Red Sox only to find out a few days later he had torn the ulnar collateral ligament...
