#Indians place RHP Brett Myers on 15-day DL. Corey Kluber will start Wed. vs. #WhiteSox.

Myers has been dealing with discomfort in his right forearm
since the middle of spring training. The issue has increased each time the
veteran has pitched, and it’s obviously impacted his performance so far this
Over four games – including three starts – Myers has allowed
19 earned runs on 29 hits over 21 1/3 innings. The right-hander has surrendered
10 home runs and five walks while striking out 12 batters over that span. The
Indians have not offered a timeframe for his return.
With Myers hitting the DL, the Indians will move swing man
Corey Kluber into the rotation. Cleveland called up Fernando Nieve from
Triple-A to replace Kluber in the bullpen.

Danny Salazar (SP, Akron Aeros): 5 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 9 K.
Ah, now that’s more like it. Before Saturday, there was a mix of good and bad from Salazar in his previous three starts with the Aeros.

One fan sitting in right field of Sunday’s Indians-Astros game showed why you don’t try to catch a home-run ball with a popcorn bucket. If not for the fan dumping popcorn into his mouth, Rick Ankiel would have robbed Stubbs of a home-run.
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.

8:01 PM – I just learned that today is Terry Francona’s birthday. Hours before, I heard that it’s also Jack Nicholson’s birthday. 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...

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...
