After a collision at the plate, backup catcher Lou Marson left Saturday’s game against Tampa with a neck strain. The Indians announced that he’s day-to-day. Lou Marson left the game with a cervical (neck) strain. he is day to day — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 7, 2013 Marson took a monster hit from Rays CF Desmond Jennings in bang-bang play at the plate. In the bottom of third, with no outs and Desmond Jennings on third, Matt Joyce hit a dribbler to Lonnie Chisenhall, who threw home for the fielder’s choice.  Jennings arrived just after the throw and went shoulder first into Marson’s helmet. Marson was bowled over, his head whipping back and hitting the dirt, but he held onto the ball and recorded the out. Team doctors examined Marson on the field, but he stayed in the game and finished out the rest of the inning. However, Marson didn’t come back out for the bottom of the fourth. Carlos Santana, who started the night as DH, was inserted behind the plate. And since Santana started the night at DH and moved to the field, their pitchers were forced to bat in place of Marson (which was 9th). Saturday night was Marson’s first appearance of the season and he walked in his only plate appearance. Marson, 26, appeared in 70 games for the Indians last season and hit .226 with 8 doubles and an OPS of .635 in 195 at-bats. [Related: Tribe Preview Part I- The Position Players]

Trevor Bauer Throws A Golden Huarache

So far, Trevor Bauer's adjustment to life in pro ball from UCLA is off to a much worse start than Keifer Sutherland's television career after 24. Have you seen Touch? Yeah, neither has anyone else. Making his Cleveland Indians debut after the Diamondbacks jettisoned Bauer (Trevor) for cents on the dollar, the 22-year-old pitcher turned in a performance that led me to believe...

Cy Young winners' worst nightmare

Let's face it, being the Cleveland Indians already puts you behind the eight ball before your season even starts.

But even Ricky "...

Second Thoughts: Game #4:Rays 4, Indians 0

Everybody Makes Mistakes Young right-hander Zach McAllister went out and made some mistakes, but overall had a quality start stats-wise as he was only charged with two runs in six innings of work despite giving up four.

First Take on Trevor Bauer

  Trevor Bauer's first career major league start with the Indians will forever be remembered as him being the first pitcher to walk the first four batters of a game since John Danks of the White Sox in 2009 and the first Indian since Bartolo Colon.

Indians shut down by Moore, suffer 4-0 loss to Rays

TAMPA - When going on a road trip, it’s easy to leave some necessary belongings behind. For the Indians, it looked like the team left their hitting shoes behind the Canadian border in Toronto, as Tampa Bay shutout the Tribe on Friday night, 4-0.

The Good Old Days at Good Old Municipal Stadium

In honor of Opening Day in Cleveland, here’s some rare footage from August 1986 of a day at old Municipal Stadium where the Indians beat the Yankees 6-5 in 10 innings.
