Mowers: Top-five MLB third base prospects

5. Yandy Diaz, Indians TKB’s resident scouting maven Bernie Pleskoff somewhat let the cat out of the bag in profiling Diaz last week, but I’ll feed it and give Yandy a home as the number-five third base prospect in all the land. Diaz is strumming .339/.416/.492 in his first half-season of Triple-A, and deserves more attention. […] The post Mowers: Top-five MLB third base prospects...

Indians Help Cleveland Celebrate Anniversary with Old-Timers Game

On July 22, 1796, a team of surveyors led by Moses Cleaveland stepped off a boat where the Cuyahoga River meets Lake Erie to plan out a town in what was then known as the Connecticut Western Reserve.

7/26 Recap: Lindor Singles, Indians Walk Off

Player of the Game Dan Otero has been arguably the Indians most dominant reliever this season, but until this point had yet to win a Player of the Game award. After two perfect innings tonight, however, that is no longer the case. Otero struck out one and turned an incredible double play on a ball hit right back at him to eliminate a runner that had been left on for him. This was...

One Man’s Trash: Chill Out With The Iceman

This week's most added fantasy player, Cleveland Indians outfielder Tyler Naquin (51.5% owned; +33.1% over the past week), isn't like the majority of the most popular fantasy players to be plucked off of the waiver wire throughout the course of the MLB regular season. Despite being a mid-first round pick out of Texas A&M in the 2012 MLB draft, he was never really considered to...

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber is very different from the stretch

If the statistics show that there is a larger-than-normal difference, then where is it coming from? Corey Kluber carries himself like an old west Gunslinger on the mound, mowing his enemies down without a hint of emotion. He throws two plus-plus pitches, and when he's locked in his opponents are doomed. His unnamed breaking ball would have had him burned at the stake for sorcery...

Indians OF Rajai Davis had a priceless reaction to a terrible BP pitch

Throwing pitches in batting practice seems like an easy job, but it's not as simple as it sounds. With the best hitters in the world ready to lace one back up the middle at any moment, hiding behind the screen quickly is a must. That can lead to some botched pitches, which you most certainly don't want to throw Rajai Davis' way. His Cleveland Indians teammate Jason Kipnis stumbled...

Tommy Hunter suffers back fracture after falling while carrying child

The Cleveland Indians probably didn’t think that they would have to worry about reliever Tommy Hunter’s sense of balance this season. Hunter has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a non-displaced fracture of a vertebra in his lower back. The apparent culprit of his injury? A fall down the stairs at home while carrying his child. “He had a little mishap at home during...
