(USAToday Sports)There have been several suggested starting pitcher trade targets for the Red Sox—young hurlers like José Quintana, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar or Chris Sale. Now, multiple reports are pointing to another possible target—Atlanta's Shelby Miller.

Have the Indians Found their Fifth Man?

A year ago, Indians fans were busy discussing if the team had enough rotation depth to find their fourth and fifth starters. Heck, even their third man was up for debate. Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco had strong 2014 seasons, but Danny Salazar and Trevor Bauer remained question marks for the team. Carrasco hadn’t even had a full strong season, instead emerging in the second...

Best secondary pitches in MLB

After every baseball season, when award voting season is in full swing, there is always a debate about how to best value pitcher's’ performance.  Over time, these evaluations have evolved from simple W-L records, to ERA and strikeout numbers, and most recently to Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) and Wins Above Replacement (WAR). A pitcher's unique position forces them to...

Should The Indians Trade From Their Pitching for a Big Bat?

Heading into the off-season, the Indians have a few key positions that they need filled. Most notably, these positions are in center field and right field. In order to get a quality bat, the Indians are most likely going to have to find a way to acquire such bat through a trade. In order to do this, their best chance of getting the kind of bat they want, they’ll need to tap into...

Is It Time To Extend Danny Salazar?

Danny Salazar is coming off his first full season as a professional and it was a good one. The young fire-balling phenom we all believed would lead us to playoff appearances in 2014 and beyond finally showed the promise that captivated us during his short 2013 debut season. Going into 2016, like the Indians as a whole, Salazar will begin the season with fairly lofty expectations...

Inside the Numbers: A Look at How Close the Indians are to a Playoff Team

Are the Cleveland Indians really on the cusp of being a playoff team? Do the Indians really have a strong core to be proud of? Is it really a young core to be built around for several years to come? And if the Indians really are that close to a playoff berth, how close are they to competing for and winning the World Series? The Indians organization—the front office, managerial...

Early Rotation Issues Helped Sink Tribe’s Season

It is amazing to think how different the Cleveland Indians starting rotation looks now after the completion of the season versus how it played out six months ago when the Tribe broke camp with two large question marks in the back end of the staff. The revolving door that became the fifth starting spot was one of the handful of issues that would plague the Indians this season and...

Should the Indians Re-sign Mike Aviles?

Now that we are truly on our way into the colder months of the off-season, questions on what to do about certain players are starting to arise more often than usual. With the majority of the roster, it simply comes down to who could be traded for bigger bats; like Carlos Santana or Danny Salazar, just to name a few. However, there is one particular player whose 2015 season and free...

Salazar’s Early Season Wake-up Call is just the Push He Needed

A few seasons ago, a young, flame-throwing pitcher emerged onto the scene amidst praise that he could possibly be one of the next big things for the Indians pitching staff. Danny Salazar certainly exceeded expectations during points of his first season – who can forget him striking out Miguel Cabrera three times during his second big league start in 2013? He had such acclaim that...

Sox Get Swept By Indians to End The Season

The Red Sox came into the final game of the season in 2o15 with Rick Porcello on the mound vs. Danny Salazar for the Indians.  The Sox were hoping for a win to not be swept out of 2015.  The Sox got the first run, but the Indians scored last and sent the Sox packing with another loss in the season. The Sox scored their one and only run in the game in the top of the 1st inning....

C-Cap Recap: High Water Marks

Generally speaking, it’s never a bad thing for a team to finish a season at its high water mark. Whether you’re making a playoff push or merely trying to stow away some optimism to keep you warm in the winter, every new beginning — to quote an obnoxious ‘90s pop song — comes from “some other beginning’s end.” And so, with minimal drama or fanfare, the Cleveland Indians...

9/27 Recap: Tribe Bats Fall Asleep as Playoff Hopes Dwindle

Player of the Game All things considered, Danny Salazar pitched a pretty decent game today save for one inning. Had he gotten some support this could have been a very different outing. Feathers Up There are no silver linings in two-hit losses at the end of the season in the middle of a playoff push. That lack of offense is simply unacceptable at a time when one loss may be the...

Suspect Calls Shut Down Salazar and Tribe; Twins 3, Indians 1

A questionable ball four call against Danny Salazar spiraled into a three-run third inning and that would be all Minnesota would need on Tuesday as Ervin Santana and the Twins shut down the Cleveland Indians, 3-1. It was another loss that the Indians could ill afford to suffer as the team has long since been in crunch time. The loss dropped the club back under the .500 mark at 74...
