Kitchen ad on Indians' outfield wall creates crazy optical illusion

Well that’s, um, odd. Cleveland Indians outfielder Carlos Moncrief had some very odd and out-of-place scenery as a backstop as he chased down a fly ball during a recent Cleveland Indians spring training game at Goodyear Ballpark in Goodyear, Ariz. (wonder how they came up with the name of the stadium). As you can plainly […]The post Optical illusion created by kitchen ad on Indians’...

2014 IBI Top 50 Prospects: #19 OF Jordan Smith

The IBI's 2014 Indians Top 50 Prospect countdown continues with outfielder Jordan Smith. Smith has been an exceptionally consistent performer with the bat over his first three years in the Indians system, but it is his growth defensively which has a lot of people talking. In this detailed scouting report, the IBI's Tony Lastoria provides all the details on his growth as a...

Swisher gives teammates 'Unfinished Business' T-shirts

Nick Swisher is a big T-shirt guy. Last year, his "Brohio" shirt first spawned a special section. Now, "Brohio" has its own governor and will be the theme of a bobblehead. So, it is pretty clear Swisher knows how to start a movement. That might be a good sign when it comes to the latest slogan he is getting behind. In his letter to the fans, manager Terry Francona...

Is It Carrasco’s Time to Shine?

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...

2014 IBI Top 50 Prospects: #18 OF Anthony Santander

The IBI's 2014 Indians Top 50 Prospect countdown continues with outfielder Anthony Santander. Santander is one of the most physically gifted players in the Indians system who had a bout with the injury bug last season, but is no doubt an exciting prospect with massive upside. In this detailed scouting report the IBI's Tony Lastoria gives the 411 on his upside, what happened...

Indians' Nick Swisher will not play early spring training games

The Cleveland Indians entered Spring Training following a 92-70 season which was good enough for a wild card berth in the American League.  The Indians were led by an offense which as fifth in the league in runs scored.  A key component to the offensive, who had a down season by his standards is first baseman Nick Swisher.  Manager Terry Francona will be cautious with Swisher...

Indians shutout Reds 4-0 to win two straight

Player of the Game: Zach McAllister (2 innings, 0 hits, 0 ER, 1 BB / 1 SO) The Leadoff A two-run homer by Ryan Raburn was essentially all Cleveland would need Friday afternoon, as they blanked the Cincinnati Reds, 4-0.  Collecting just four hits on offense, pitching was the name of the game in the rubber match against the Reds at Goodyear Ballpark. Seven Tribe hurlers combined to...

Tribe returns favor with 12-3 blowout win over Cincinnati

If you are a key Indians prospect, you were probably hitting, walking, driving in runs, scoring runs or flashing leather in the field on Thursday as the Indians put a 12-3 shellacking on the Reds at Goodyear Ballpark. Carlos Carrasco earned the win and deservedly so after two perfect innings of work in the third and fourth while Elliot Johnson, Jake Lowery and Tyler Naquin provided...

Santana makes debut at 3B, Indians beat Reds 12-3

Cleveland star catcher Carlos Santana made his first start at third base and got a hit. No chances to show off his glove, though. Santana had a single in two at-bats, but didn't get to handle the ball at his new position as the Indians beat the Cincinnati Reds 12-3 on Thursday with the help of three homers. ''Carlos is more comfortable out there than people give him...

Cincinnati's Price ready for managerial debut

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Bryan Price awakened at 4 a.m. Wednesday, about 30 minutes before he usually awakens, "So I had about a 30-minute jump-start on the anxiety." It was because it was the day of his debut, his first game as a baseball manager at any level -- his Cincinnati Reds against the Cleveland Indians in the first exhibition game of the spring. Price, 51, a native...

Indians drop spring opener to Reds, 8-3

Player of the Game: Chris Heisey (2-for-3) with a double, home run and two RBI. The Leadoff It may not feel like it in Cleveland, but baseball is officially back. The Indians dropped their first game of Cactus league action against their state rival Cincinnati Reds Wednesday afternoon, 8-3. Outscoring the Tribe 6-1 over the final four frames, Cincy cruised to the easy victory in...

The Remarkable Consistency of Nick Swisher

Throughout Major League Baseball, Nick Swisher has been underrated for much of his career. With the exception of when he played in the large media market of New York, not many national writers have given Swisher the recognition he has deserved. Quietly, he has been reliably good for a very long time. Since 2006, he’s played 145 or more games per season, hit over 20 home runs...

Today in Tribe History: February 27, 1963
