MLB Injury News:
The Cleveland Indians have placed backup catcher Lou Marson
on the disabled list with a cervical neck strain, the team has announced.
Yan Gomes recalled and Lou Marson DL'd with a cervical neck strain. Gomes is in the lineup batting 9th tonight
‚ÄĒ Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 9, 2013
Marson sustained his injury over the weekend when Tampa Bay
Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings collided with him during a play at the plate.
To replace Marson on the roster, the Indians have recalled backstop Yan Gomes.
Cleveland had already been playing short at catcher, as
regular Carlos Santana is day-to-day while nursing a finger injury. In a sign
that Santana may not return for a little while, the Indians also added catcher
Omir Santos to the roster.
The Indians acquired Marson from the Philadelphia Phillies
in 2009 in the Cliff Lee trade. He hasn‚Äôt developed into the regular behind the
plate the Tribe had hoped for. The 26-year-old owns a career batting line of
.220/.310/.301 over parts of six seasons in the majors.

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...

The good news?
It‚Äôs only been eight games. Nothing is decided in eight games.
The bad news?
Those eight games have raised more questions than they‚Äôve answered about the Indians‚Äô2013 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...

I can‚Äôt 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...

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...
