Fully immersed: Diving into baseball’s player development culture

As Cleveland Indians fans who enjoy arriving early to the ballpark know, a dedicated long-toss regimen is as much a part of pregame rituals for many pitchers as batting practice and shagging fly balls is for positional players. Starting pitchers Trevor Bauer and teammate Danny Salazar, in particular, are known to throw it from the outfield walls to targets over 350 feet away with...

Should Indians Shop Salazar or Sign Him Long Term?

The Indians have proved that they are committed to their future over the last two seasons. In the last two offseasons, the Indians have extended contracts to Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Jason Kipnis, Michael Brantley and Yan Gomes.

Cleveland Indians could be built to win for a long time

Anyone outside the Cleveland Indians organization who looks at the roster would say the team is built around their starting pitching. A top of the rotation which includes Corey Kluber, Carlos Carassco, and Danny Salazar is one of the tops in baseball. However, a deeper look into the roster reveals a much deeper group than just Kluber, Carassco, and Salazar. This is clear when looking...

MLB Hot Stove: Indians cannot afford to trade elite starting pitching

Salacious audacity! Writing an entire post about how the Cleveland Indians should not trade their best starting pitchers seems to be common sense. Yet rumors have continued to percolate upon the MLB hot stove that any time a team is looking for an elite starting pitcher, the Indians are willing to listen. Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar have already been linked to the San Francisco...

Chicago Cubs rumors: Danny Salazar edition

The Chicago Cubs have arguably won the offseason so far. With the additions of Jason Heyward, Ben Zobrist, and John Lackey the Cubs have become one of the favorites to win the 2016 MLB World Series. While many fans are satisfied with the current roster, there is still a possibility that the Cubs could make additional moves. It seems that the rumors of moving Jorge Soler have subsided...

Implications of the winter meetings for the Cleveland Indians

After all the commotion of the Baseball Winter Meetings in Nashville comes to a close, the Cleveland Indians roster looks very similar to the way it did before. But that is not to say the Indians wasted an opportunity or did nothing during the annual meeting of Major League Baseball’s general managers, often times the groundwork for trades is laid at the winter meetings only to...

Cleveland North Of The Border: The New Toronto Front Office.

When former club president Mark Shapiro left to take on a larger role with the Toronto Blue Jays, it was close to a foregone conclusion that general manager Alex Anthopoulos would not survive the change in power. This is usually the case in all avenues of corporate America and Major League Baseball teams are not immune. When a new boss comes into town, he or she likes to bring in...

Cleveland Indians Winter Meetings in Review

A little bit of everything happened at this year’s MLB Winter Meetings, unless you ask a Cleveland Indians fan. There was some scandal around flamethrower Aroldis Chapman in a trade between the Cincinnati Reds and the LA Dodgers with a now pending investigation and possible suspension. Deals were made that were expected to break the dam and create a flood of trades and talks,...

How Much Should the Indians Rotation Actually Cost?

This is simply going to be an exercise in showing how valuable the Indians rotation is and to keep things simple, we’ll assume a 2016 rotation of Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar, Trevor Bauer and Cody Anderson. David Price just set a new high for pitcher pay grabbing $217M over seven years from the Red Sox while Jordan Zimmermann made quite a big splash for a more...

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 a 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 him to rely...

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.

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...
