Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 39 – Giovanny Urshela

Join Did The Tribe Win Last Night as we count down to Opening Day! Countdown to Opening Day – 39 Has the window of opportunity already closed in Cleveland for Giovanny Urshela? After getting a half-season taste test of the Majors in the second half of the 2015 season, Urshela’s path back to the Indians lineup received a big obstacle when the club signed free agent Juan Uribe...

Giovanny Urshela looks great in Triple-A right now, but don't expect a call-up anytime soon

The only thing worse than overvaluing a small sample size is overvaluing a small minor-league sample size. When the Cleveland Indians signed veteran Juan Uribe to a one-year, $4 million deal this offseason, it more or less sealed the fate of Giovanny Urshela. The homegrown third baseman was spectacular on defense for the Indians in 2015, but his bat never found a rhythm. Whether...

In Urshela We Trust?

There are some questions when discussing exactly who will regularly man third base for the Cleveland Indians in 2016. The most logical choice right now is the slick-fielding Giovanny Urshela, who at age 24 will most likely be given the opportunity to open the season at the position. Yes, a guy like Todd Frazier would have been a huge addition to the Tribe to play third base in...

Is Giovanny Urshela the Cleveland Indians' long-term solution at third?

Do the Indians finally have their long-term solution at third base in Giovanny Urshela? The 23-year-old rookie has only played 27 games with the Tribe this year, but he seems to have the potential to take up permanent residence at the hot corner in Cleveland.

Could Urshela Be the Key To Improving the Defense?

The solution to the defensive woes of 2014 might be closer than expected, well at least for third base. Giovanny Urshela, 23, first arrived in the Indians system in 2009. He was never really anything super impressive, aside from his superb caliber defense. He struck out too much, didn’t walk enough, and didn’t provide much power in his swing. He’s always had a decent slugging...

Added Strength Paying Off Big for Urshela
