Tribe Happenings: The time is now to extend Masterson

Some news, notes, and thoughts from my Indians notebook… Taking the plunge on Masterson It is something that has not been talked about much yet, but right-hander Justin Masterson is getting closer and closer to free agency with every start he makes. At the same time, with every good start he makes, his price tag goes up and up as well. Masterson, who just turned 28-years old last...

Cleveland Indians Recall Pitcher Scott Barnes

The Cleveland Indians have recalled left handed pitcher Scott Barnes from Triple-A Columbus to help fill the bullpen with a fresh arm for today’s double-header. He isn’t expected to stick around after the set of games. At least he gets a nice bonus on his paycheck and perhaps just enough to treat his boys to a few brews at the bar.

Rayl activated, Cooper promoted to Akron, more moves

The Indians made a slew of moves throughout their minor league system on Monday. Here is a quick recap of the activity: At Columbus, lefty Giovanni Soto was placed on the seven-day disabled list with a lower back strain. Also, with Carlos Carrasco recently sidelined and Diasuke Matsuzaka getting injured on Sunday, the Indians promoted right-handersToru Murata and Kyle Landis from...

The 2013 Transaction Rundown: April 20-28

The transaction nuttiness continues as the Big Club's inability to stay healthy continues to result in a domino effect of upheaval throughout the organization, especially at Class AA Akron and above. The week saw Lou Marson get off the 15-day DL and promptly reenter the list only four days later.  The beginning of the week saw Cord Phelps demoted to AAA Columbus, where he isn...

Cleveland Indians Place Catcher Lou Marson On Disabled List

The Cleveland Indians have placed catcher Lou Marson on the 15-day disabled list due to inflamation of his right shoulder. He was already placed on the disabled list a few weeks back with a strained neck. For the time being, the Indians have called up Yan Gomes to replace Marson on the active roster. There is no time table set for Marson’s return. The post Cleveland Indians Place...

IBI Digest: 4/21/13-4/27/13

Mother Nature seems determined to prevent Cleveland from playing any baseball games, but there has still been plenty of action up and down the system. Between the major and league teams, no one has better coverage than Indians Baseball Insider. Here are all of the pieces that went up on IBI over the past week: Subscription Pieces IBI Hot List: 4/15/13 - 4/21/13: In his weekly feature...

Francisco Lindor, Simply Elite

When the Indians selected Francisco Lindor 8th overall in the 2011 draft, he possessed a high floor and upside. Drafted out of Montverde, Florida, he was an accomplished defender but questions about how long it would take his bat to develop surrounded the young Puerto Rican. In his full season, Lindor has put rest to any doubt whether he will be one of the game’s brightest stars...

Second Thoughts Game #20: Rain out edition

Will the Indians ever play baseball again? It certainly feels like the Tribe has been in Mother Nature’s doghouse wherever they go this season as they now have four postponements and four games to make up. Fortunately, the team will still be able to get in all four games this weekend as they’ll make up Friday’s series opener on Sunday in a day-night doubleheader. The Royals...

Around the Farm: April 27, 2013

LeVon Washington (CF, Lake County Captains): 5-for-5, 3 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI. This was only Washington’s fourth game of the 2013 season as he missed 18 games after pulling his hamstring in the Captains’ home opener on April 4. Judging by this contest, it appears as if Washington is fully healthy and also hopefully ready to make up for lost time. Washington was essentially the Captains’...

IBI Hot List: 4/22/13 - 4/28/13

The IBI Hot List is back for another week and ranks the hot (and some cold) performances in the Indians system over the past week. Last week saw LeVon Washington return with a fury with five hits on Saturday, Diasuke Matsuzaka looked to turn a corner, Preston Guilmet is squarely on the big league radar, Jordan Cooper is rising, Cord Phelps’ struggles continue, and much more. Tony...

Mudcats blow save, fall 5-4

FREDERICK- A back-and forth-battle got away from the Carolina Mudcats, who lost to the Frederick Keys 5-4 Saturday.  Mudcats closer Jeff Johnson surrendered a one-out walk and a two-out double in the bottom of the ninth inning. With runners on second and third, Johnson gave up a two-out two RBI walk-off single. Those were the first runs surrendered by Johnson this year, and this...

Second Thoughts Game #20: Royals 3, Indians 2

Player of the Game: Ervin Santana (7 Inn. 6 hits 0 ER 0 BB / 5 SO) The Leadoff They say pitching is the key to winning in baseball. But there also is another key saying that should go along with that: you can’t win if you can’t score. This was exactly the case again for the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night as they fell to the first place Kansas City Royals, 3-2. Tribe starter...

4/28 Game 1 Recap: Indians 0 - Royals 9

Roster Update: With a double header scheduled today, the Indians and Royals were allowed to add a 26th man to the roster. The Indians chose to add left handed reliever Scott Barnes, which should be very useful after they used the entire bullpen in last night's loss. The Indians made another move as well, placing Lou Marson back on the 15 day DL and bringing back Yan Gomes after...

KANSAS CITY, Mo.
