MLB News: Asdrubal Cabrera placed on 15-day DL

It wasn’t a big surprise after seeing Asdrubal Cabrera’s painful run down the first base line last night that today the team has placed him on the 15-day DL. The team also announced that they’ve recalled infielder Juan Diaz from AAA Columbus. Diaz’ numbers in Columbus are pretty unimpressive as he’s batting .211 and .231 against righties according to the Tribe’s press...

2013 NBA Draft, LeBron James, Trent Richardson, Asdrubal Cabrera and more with Dennis Manoloff – WFNY Podcast – 2013-06-04

Tribe Happenings: Indians left-handed relief is letting them down

Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… Left-handed relief problems The Indians starting rotation has really turned a corner over the past five or so weeks. The offense has had its ups and downs, but for the most part has been an above average unit all season.

Notes from the Wigwam: Bullpen woes take toll

When a problem arises, it’s imperative to quickly find a solution. Unfortunately for the Cleveland Indians, there does not appear to be any definitive solution in sight to the Tribe’s bullpen woes.
