Found April 10, 2013 on Indians Baseball Insider:
The Indians have yet to make an official announcement on who will start tonight's game against the Yankees, but right-handed pitcher Corey Kluberis en route to Cleveland and will start the game tonight if it is played. Kluber, 27, has made one start for Triple-A Columbus going six innings and allowing three runs on six hits, one walk and piling up four strikeouts. Over the last two seasons he has appeared in 15 games (12 starts) at the Major League level for the Indians and gone 2-5 with a 5.35 ERA, and in 67.1 innings has allowed 82 hits, 21 walks and has 59 strikeouts. With right-hander Carlos Carrasco’s ejection last night and then tonight’s probable starter right-hander Brett Myers having to be used in long relief, it opened up a need for a starter tonight. The Indians could have moved right-hander Zach McAllister up a day to start tonight since he would then be pitching on normal rest, but then they would need a starter for Thursday. Pushing up right-hander Justin Masterson...

Second Thoughts Game #8: Yankees 14, Indians 1

Not Exactly How I Planned To Start The Season At 6:30 when I was on my way to Progressive Field for my first live Indians game of the season, I couldn’t be more excited. By 9:30 that night, however, when the Yankees were beating my beloved Tribe 14-1 and “Let’s go Yankees!” chants from the New York fans in attendance was nauseatingly audible above the normal chatter of the...

Yankees 14, Indians 1: One week in and the rotation is a big problem

I am not one to panic. Especially with 150-plus games left on the schedule. The hot starts for the Tribe the last two years resulted in nothing. But obviously you would like to see the lesser parts of your team do well early to give them confidence as the season starts to build. It was no secret that the weak link of the 2013 Cleveland Indians would be their starting rotation. All...

Theyve started Carlos Carrasco, then sent down Carlos...

Second Thoughts: Indians pitchers off to rough start

The good news? It’s only been eight games. Nothing is decided in eight games. The bad news? Those eight games have raised more questions than they’ve answered about the Indians’2013 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...

The season isn't over at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario

I can’t 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...
