Indians activate OF Michael Bourn

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Indians activated starting center fielder Michael Bourn from the 15-day disabled list after sweeping a four-game series from Oakland. Bourn had been sidelined since slicing open his right index finger while diving into first base on April 14. He was eligible to return on April 30, but the cut didn't heal in time and Bourn needed some extra time. Bourn is...

Salazar's encouraging start has him on way to Columbus

Akron Aeros’ right-hander Danny Salazar spent the offseason working out with Ubaldo Jimenez, but Tribe fans needn’t be concerned. Salazar, 23, has fared better than Jimenez this season, as he is presently 2-3 with a 2.67 ERA and a 51:10 K:BB. In three appearances from April 20-May 2, Salazar didn’t allow an earned run. On Tuesday, his final start with the Aeros, he tossed...

Cleveland Indians talk – trying not to talk attendance, Swisher’s intangibles, Francona and Ubaldo and more with TD – WFNY Podcast – 2013-05-09

We did talk briefly about the attendance, but really not much at all. We’ve both agreed that it shouldn’t dominate the headlines a second year in a row. Lackluster attendance and how tired we are of talking about it Bud Shaw’s article about the long-term project TV ratings and how far they’re up year over year You can’t get the pulse of casual fans that stopped...

Tribe sweep A’s, ready for series in Detroit

MLB.com Having lost their previous eight games against the Oakland Athletics heading into to this past week’s four-game series that began Monday, the red-hot Cleveland Indians knew that things would be different this time around.

Second Thoughts Game #31: A's 3, Indians 4

The Indians catch a break Unless my admittedly questionable eyesight is failing desperately theAdam Rosales homerun/double call and later review may have been the most abysmal, egregious call I have seen in a long time. How this crew failed to correct the call on the field and reward Rosales with a homerun is beyond me. However, fortunately for Chris Perez and the Indians this...

Second Thoughts Game #32: Indians 9, A’s 2

It’s been nearly four years since Scott Kazmir last struck out 10 batters in a game. To put that in context, a teenager who was just starting college back then—August 26, 2009, to be exact—could conceivably be preparing for his graduation this weekend. That’s an awful lot of space between two bookends. But before we get back to the phoenix that is the Tribe’s veteran...

2013 MLB Draft: Looking at the redrafts

We are about a month until the 2013 MLB Draft and things are starting to crystallize.  The top two picks are all but confirmed to be Mark Appel and Jonathan Gray, though the order they are taken is yet to be determined and won't be known until draft night.

MLB Admits It Got Home Run Call Wrong in Athletics-Indians Game, But Results Won’t Change

CLEVELAND — Major League Baseball says the umpires were wrong. That doesn’t help the Oakland Athletics. One day after umpire Angel Hernandez and his crew failed to reverse an obvious home run by A’s infielder Adam Rosales following a video review, MLB executive vice president Joe Torre said an “improper call” was made in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s game between the...
