Waiting For Next Year:
Following a consultation with long-time specialist Dr. Lewis Yocum, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. The ligament-replacing procedure will be performed by Yocum on Wednesday in Los Angeles.
“It’s something that he needed to get done,” Indians manager Manny Acta said of the surgery, “in order for him to be able to compete the way he was able to compete in the past.”
The reported timetable for a full recovery is expected to be 12-18 months.
Tomlin has experienced on-and-off soreness over the last several years. The team feels that his regression from the 2011 season is largely due to the gradual deterioration of the player’s right elbow.

Now experiencing soreness in his right knee, outfielder Grady Sizemore is officially done for the 2012 season, a year in which he played zero games after being signed to a one-year deal in the offseason.
Missing the bulk of the season following a Spring Training back injury, the 30-year-old Sizemore has undergone operations on his back, left elbow and both knees, along with a pair...
The last couple of months haven't been too kind to the Cleveland Indians who dropped from first place in the AL Central to the bottom of the division.
The team's lack of success has gotten to closer Chris Perez and it appears that it boiled over in Oakland over the weekend.
Perez got into an argument with an Oakland fan in the stands and decided to kindly tell...
Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez says he won't apologize after being caught on camera in a profanity-laced verbal exchange with a taunting Oakland A's fan.
''I don't regret it,'' Perez said before Monday's game with Seattle of the incident that took place the day before. ''Looking back it's not the best thing to be on the Internet...
The losing is getting to everyone. How can is not? And its not just the fact that they actually lose seemingly every day, its the spectacular fashion in which they do.
I’m not one for moral victories, but at least the Indians were in all three games this series with Seattle and didn’t get blown out. Somewhere, I can hear Harry Doyle say “you have to give ‘em credit, at least...
Before Sunday's game, Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez took a break from shagging flies, ambled over to the right-field foul line, and cursed out an A's fan. You'd think Perez would've known that players rarely come out ahead in public player-fan confrontations. Then again, this is only his fifth major-league season, so maybe he's still getting the hang of...
Injury Update: Josh Tomlin is scheduled to recieve Tommy John surgery to repair his right elbow. This means he will likely miss all of 2013, just like Carlos Carrasco has missed all of this one after his Tommy John surgery. As far as the Indians roster goes, it will free up one more 40 man spot as Tomlin can be placed on the 60 Day DL instead of the 15.
Well, at least it was over quickly.

Yesterday, the video of Cleveland Indians’ closer Chris Perez interacting with an Oakland A’s fan went all over the internet. Perez is known as a hot head, but this is just awesome.
The first rule of thumb is; 1) don’t listen to stupid fans yelling, 2) don’t go over to the stands and engage in fans, and 3) most importantly – don’t say “get your d$ck out of your mouth”...
SEATTLE (AP) -- Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez says he won't apologize after being caught on camera in a profanity-laced verbal exchange with a taunting Oakland A's fan.
"I don't regret it," Perez said before Monday's game with Seattle of the incident that took place the day before. "Looking back it's not the best thing to be on the Internet...
With most of the farm systems, you could argue one way or another that they were as good as many of the other farm systems. Now, we get to our first farm system that will rank among the bottom group. There is very little to explain the Indians fall from grace. They’ve been competitive for the most part, but they haven’t lived in the playoffs. In short, they just...
Yesterday, I uttered the phrase “I didn’t know what to say anymore” about this Indians team. 24 hours later, once again, they have left me speechless in the way they lost yet another game, their sixth in a row, this time to Eric Wedge and the Seattle Mariners. The days of good pitching, great defense, and timely hitting are long gone at this point. Now it’s essentially becoming...
The Cleveland Indians continue their decent to the basement of the American League central division, Roberto Hernandez didn’t pitch that bad, the Indians couldn’t get any runs across the plate. The Seattle hitters only Hit the former Fausto Carmona 3 times but the Tribe couldn’t get their offense going once again. Jason Kipnis made it clear he wasn’t going to give Felix...
Let's just say before we get into this story, we aren't defending either side in this one, because they were both wrong.
Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez had a rather NSFW "discussion" with an Oakland A's fan who, according to our friends at Larry Brown Sports, had been harassing him for years.
This time, the...
Mullet-wearing, mouth-shooting, save-scrounging, former-razor-abandoning closer Chris Perez of our very own Cleveland Indians can be quite a character. If it's not his look on the mound (I personally loved the firebreathing, hair waiving, crazy persona he brings to the mound), it's his fired up personality after getting a save, the same on-field antics that certainly can...
Another gem for the King
The Headline: timely offense and a Felix Hernandez gem were all the Mariner’s needed for this win.
