Watch: Top prospect Francisco Lindor’s 6th home run for Akron RubberDucks

Francisco Lindor is the Indians top prospect and a top-15 prospect in all of baseball. He was advertised as a All-Star with the glove with a solid power-lacking bat. Somebody say power? Well, the 20-year-old hit his sixth home run yesterday in 71 games in Double-A this season. Here’s the video from Your browser does not support iframes. Lindor’s batting line is now...

Masterson’s Tough Season to Take a Few Days Break

In 2013, Justin Masterson pitched like a No. 1 starter. During spring training, he wanted to be paid like one. The problem is, Masterson has never been able to pitch like a top hurler with any consistency during his career. This season has been a microcosm of that. Masty made his first All-Star team a season ago, on his way to a 14-10 record and 3.45 ERA. It was a solid season that...

Masterson to miss next start; Lindor update

With two off days this week, the Indians were already making adjustments by going to a four-man rotation. They will make one more with this weekend's series at Seattle. Justin Masterson will miss his scheduled start on Sunday due to a sore right knee. Manager Terry Francona told reporters before Wednesday's game that Masterson will throw a bullpen session in Seattle. If he...

Indians what to watch: Wild west?

It's not breaking news that Justin Masterson's season has been a rollercoaster. Just when you think the right-hander has things solved and is returning to the form he has displayed the past two years, when he made the American League All-Star team, there are an outing or two where he struggles. A good example of that have been his fast five starts. Masterson has allowed two...

The Seattle Indians? It Could Have Happened

As the Indians and Mariners do battle in Seattle, it’s worth remembering that at one point, this meeting might not have taken place. There was a time when the Indians nearly moved to the Emerald City. Hank Greenberg left Cleveland in 1957 embittered but having built the team’s farm system into the envy of the major leagues. Greenberg tried to engineer the team’s move to Minneapolis...

Second Thoughts Game #77: Indians 8, D'Backs 9

The Cleveland Indians lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night (Wednesday morning) in a 14-inning affair that saw the Indians tie the game in the 9th, take a two-run lead in the 11th and ultimately lose in the 14th. I will be the first to admit that I didn’t/couldn’t stay awake for the game that didn’t end up concluding until after 3am EST. Carlos Santana continued...

The Glass is Half Something—Random Thoughts from June

“Going back and forth, back and forth, getting nowhere…” -Gary Soto, Buried Onions Consistently Inconsistent: Please keep your hands and feet inside of the vehicle until this ride comes to a complete stop. The Indians almost had lured me back in.  I was actually starting to get excited again.  I was looking forward to a really, really fun summer. And then the Tigers series...

Series Preview #25: Cleveland Indians (37-39) at Arizona Diamondbacks (32-47)

While the Cleveland Indians have played well at home this season (with the exception of this past weekend against the Detroit Tigers), the Arizona Diamondbacks have done the opposite in their friendly confines, posting a 14-29 home record (.326 winning percentage). Something will have to give starting Tuesday, as the Indians will put their road woes to the test (.368 road winning...

Carolina Notebook: Martin is still learning on the mound

The Carolina Mudcats couldn’t have hoped for a better start to the second half, as they won three of their first four games. However, the team dropped two straight to end the week to bring their record to 3-3 in the second half and 32-41 overall. Carolina came out of the All-Star break, swinging the bats very well, scoring at least six runs in their first four games, but only managed...

Lindor was 0 for 1 in last year's game and 1 for 1 in 2012. Lindor, who was the Indians' first-round pick in 2011, has hit in 15 of his last 18 games with Akron and is batting .301 over that span. He was 2 for 4 with...

Staying Within Himself Has Been Key For Wendle

Finding consistency has been an issue with a number of players on the Double-A Akron RubberDucks team this season. For some, it was just small slumps where a hit seemed to be nowhere in sight. For others, it was just a matter of getting back-to-back games of putting the ball in play and getting on base. Joe Wendle was a big victim of that situation. As we near the end of the month...

Native American group planning $9 billion lawsuit against Cleveland Indians

The Washington Redskins have been under attack for their team nickname, and now the Cleveland Indians are finding themselves in a similar position.
