INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cespedes would be a near perfect fit for the Indians

A lot of attention is on the Red Sox at the moment after their blockbuster free agent signings of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval on Monday. The Red Sox are still looking to add more pieces through free agency, but suddenly the focus around baseball is who they may trade in the wake of their spending spree. Ramirez is expected to play left field for the Red Sox, a position...

Ramirez Potential Trade Piece for Tribe this Winter

The Thanksgiving turkey is starting to marinate and the first chill has already swept northeast Ohio in the last month since baseball has gone dormant. While the Indians roster has been in hibernation for two months, the Indians front office is about to take center stage for one of their busiest times of the season. Despite a disappointing 2014, the Indians missed the playoffs by...

It’s time to extend Corey Kluber long-term

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber makes about minimum wage when it comes to paying Major League Baseball players. That’s great for the Tribe now, but soon it will cost the team a lot more, possibly to the point where he couldn’t be afforded, unless action is taken sooner than later. The Indians certainly don’t have to sign pitcher Corey Kluber to a long-term contract...

Indians Injury Update: Giovanny Urshela will not need surgery on knee

The Cleveland Indians finished third in the American League Central with 85 wins in 2014. Looking forward the Indians, who were slightly above the middle of the pack in runs scored and ERA, need only to tweak the roster to contend next season.

Getting to Know the Tribe’s 40-Man Additions

The Cleveland Indians announced on Thursday the addition of five minor league prospects to the organization’s 40-man roster, protecting them from inclusion in the Major League portion of December’s Rule 5 draft. Such moves may seem inconsequential, given the difficulties presented for claiming clubs to keep selected prospects on the Major League roster for the duration of the...

Stanton-Size Contract Not Something the Indians Should Consider

Let’s get this out of the way right out of the chute. The Cleveland Indians are not going to be throwing $300 million-plus at any one player any time soon, nor should they. When the Miami Marlins signed their superstar outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to a 13-year, $325 million deal, with a team option for a 14th season at $25 million, it was the richest contract in North American...

Cleveland Indians rumors: solving the right field puzzle

After signing free agent right fielder David Murphy to a two-year contract last November, the Cleveland Indians were confident that they would have a solid platoon in right field with left-handed David Murphy on board and right-handed Ryan Raburn returning after earning a two-year contract extension last August. Murphy was a nice buy-low option for the Indians, batting just .220...

Each November, Major League Baseball teams are faced with the difficult task of protecting certain players from the consequences of the Rule 5 draft.

Indians prospect Giovany Urshela injures knee in winter ball

Giovany Urshela was one of the surprise prospects in the Cleveland Indians organization in 2014. The third baseman appeared to have an outside shot for a possible major league roster spot next season. But an injured knee in the Venezuelan Winter League could cast that in serious doubt. Urshela, a 23-year-old native of Colombia, injured his knee running the bases on Saturday. An MRI...

Urshela was supposed to undergo an MRI in Venezuela on Monday while the Indians medical staff is trying to get him up to...

Did Corey Kluber deserve the AL Cy Young?

Prior to 2007, only Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry won the AL Cy Young while wearing a Cleveland Indians uniform. This past Wednesday, Corey Kluber became the third pitcher for the Tribe in the last eight seasons to take home that honor. Lefties CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee won the award in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Just like with Lee in 2008, Kluber emerging to win the Cy Young was...

Seven Little Piggies: The Indians AFL Results

The short season of the Arizona Fall League has come to a close as it gets cold everywhere, even in the desert. This season, the Cleveland Indians changed affiliate clubs from the Surprise Saguaros to the Peoria Javelinas, although they kept the same home field in Surprise (the Spring Training home of the Rangers and Royals). Along with the Indians, the Javelinas were made of players...

Indians hire more talent from Baseball America

How often are the Cleveland Indians in the news during the middle of November? In addition to having two players listed as finalists for the game’s biggest awards—and one of them winning—the Tribe continues to make waves.

Cleveland’s Corey Kluber earns AL Cy Young

It was a tale of two 28-year-olds, but did you know who Corey Kluber was before the 2014 season began? Surely everyone knew his competition in Seattle, but unless you’re an Indians fan or follow baseball closely, perhaps not. Wednesday night the Birmingham native hopefully became a household name after capturing the 2014 American League Cy Young Award. Though he was strong down...

What To Do About Rzepczynski & Shaw

While the Indians entire roster could be set going into 2015 by simply keeping all those currently under contract around, this is likely not the greatest way to improve the team for another attempt at winning the World Series. Two players in interesting situations this off-season are Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw. Both pitchers are entering arbitration (Rzepczynski his second year...

Terry Francona Contract Extension A Sensible Move By Cleveland Indians

It wasn’t like Terry Francona was walking out the door. He didn’t need to be. The Cleveland Indians obviously realize they have the right man for their managerial job. The Tribe thus made a very sensible move Tuesday in agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Francona despite the skipper already being under team control through the 2016 season.
