Cleveland Indians: Limited roster spots available in Spring Training

With Spring Training underway and Cactus League play right around the corner, the Cleveland Indians will open up preseason play on Tuesday against the Reds with a limited number of roster spots available. Barring injuries, trades, or anything of the sort, most of the Tribe’s 25-man opening day roster is presumably set in stone. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at who...

Cleveland’s Success Riding on Young Starters

The Cleveland Indians’ 2014 season would have been far less successful if not for the emergence of several key young contributors within the starting rotation. The offense lacked consistency from some of the biggest names and highest paid members of the organization. The defense, for lack of better and more appropriate terms, was downright atrocious with the glove and arm while...

Excitement surrounding Tribe's rotation, but final spot still up for grabs

Last season, the Indians rotation was a work in progress from the time they reported to Goodyear, Ariz. Over the last two months though things gelled. During that period, they led the majors in strikeouts (358) and had the second-lowest ERA (2.76) while logging pitched the fourth-most innings (338 2/3). Many are banking that this season the rotation will resemble that and not the...

A Look at the Indians 2015 Starting Rotation

If the Indians are to make their second playoff appearance in three seasons, it will be largely due to the starting rotation picking up where it left off in the second half of 2014. The Tribe will enter 2015 with the same group of pitchers it ended 2014 with, avoiding the uncertainty that plagued last year’s staff after losing Scott Kazmir and Ubaldo Jimenez to free agency. Yet...

Player Profile #125: Danny Salazar | SP | CLE

In 2013 Danny Salazar was one of baseball’s most exciting pitchers. A 30.8 K%, 7.1 BB%, and 2.72 SIERA in 10 starts were on par with what Yu Darvish was doing that season (32.9 K%, 9.5 BB%, 2.76 SIERA), though obviously Darvish did it over a much larger span. Those major league numbers were mirror images of what Salazar had done in the minors prior to his call-up to Cleveland...

Recent history is poor for teams buying injured starting pitchers

It should come as a surprise to no baseball fan that the Indians went shopping for a bargain in free agency this winter, but it was at least mildly shocking that they came up with Gavin Floyd. Floyd has missed most of the past two seasons with injuries (Tommy John surgery in 2013 and an elbow fracture in 2014), and the Indians are pretty well stocked with starting pitching. There...

Indians look to protect a young rotation still establishing itself

The Indians made a surprising decision with starting rotation this week. First, the Indians out of nowhere signed right-handed starting pitcher Gavin Floyd to a one-year $4 million that guarantees him money and a rotation spot for the 2015 season. Then, the Indians announced that Danny Salazar, T.J. House, Zach McAllister and Josh Tomlin will have to duke it out in spring training...

With the signing of Gavin Floyd on Tuesday, Indians GM Chris Antonetti confirmed to the media that four of the five spots in the starting rotation are locked up with Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer, Carlos Carrasco, and Floyd (in no specific order).  That leaves one final spot left in the rotation.

The Cleveland Indians return to the postseason for the first time since 2007 and host the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League Wild Card Game at Progressive Field. Despite getting nine hits off of Rays pitching, the Indians cannot get a runner across home plate and lose 4-0, ending their season. Delmon Young’s leadoff home run in the third will be the only run the Rays would need...

Did Cleveland’s Defense Sabotage Danny Salazar’s Start?

Among the points one is compelled to make when arguing on behalf of Corey Kluber‘s candidacy for this year’s Cy Young award is that the defense behind him has been of suspect quality, leading to an inflated BABIP (.316) and higher ERA (68 ERA-) than his main rival for the distinction, Felix Hernandez (63 ERA-).

The Cleveland Indians (82-76) were denied a must-win game by a lopsided 7-1 score at the hands of the Kansas City Royals (86-71) at Progressive Field on Tuesday night. Danny Salazar (6-8, 4.25) was tagged with five runs in 4.2 innings, allowing his final five batters to reach base in a back-breaking three run fifth inning and it all happened with two outs.
