7/13 Recap: Bauer & Gomes Power Tribe to Close, Comeback Win

Roster Update: As if there weren’t enough obstacles in Jason Giambi’s way to return to the Majors (like the fact that the Indians have about 40 players better than him in their minor league system), there is now another. The aged slugger has been moved to the 60 Day DL, presumably because he is not very good and the Indians don’t want to release, but officially with right knee...

19. RHP Michael Clevinger – Rising.  His stock had nowhere to go but up after missing an entire year due to rehab from Tommy John surgery.  Clevinger still comes fully loaded with the four-pitch mix that made him an interesting prospect in the Angels system, and so far between A Ball and Advanced A ball, Clevinger has shown very impressive numbers.  The year after TJ surgery...

But it is only two games. We are obviously...
