Ball Played: Tigers continue mastery over Indians

The missing ingredient for the Cleveland Indians offense is often said to be a right-handed power bat. Perhaps a hitter capable of knocking around 50 extra base hits while winning a Silver Slugger Award would give them the necessary boost. Of course, the 2015 Indians expected to have such a hitter in their lineup, but catcher Yan Gomes has battled a slow start and multiple injuries...

How to Score More; Clutch Hits or Walks?

It has been a matter of debate among Indians fans, particularly those writers who speak on the Tribe Time Now network of podcasts, why the Indians had trouble scoring runs early in the season. On one side, they weren’t getting hits with runners in scoring position. On the other, they weren’t getting many runners in scoring position. This is a solid old school versus new school...

Gomes, Close to Tribe Return, Will Be Welcome Addition

The Cleveland Indians took a major hit on April 11 when their starting catcher, Yan Gomes, took a big hit in a home plate collision against the Detroit Tigers. The play left Gomes with a sprained right MCL and left the Tribe scrambling to replace one of the more valuable players on the roster.

Ball Played: Finally, an Indians win

The Cleveland Indians came into the 2015 season supposedly offensively superior to the Kansas City Royals, especially when considering power hitting.

The Royals have been the better team at the plate so far, but Wednesday the Indians demonstrated some...

A trusted backup catcher is hard to come by. The Indians believe they’ve found one in Roberto Perez, who will spell Yan Gomes to open the 2015 campaign.

A Deeper Look Into the Indians Catchers

In 2014, there was a lot of confusion behind the plate on days that Yan Gomes didn’t start. The Indians began the year with none but Carlos Santana, who was also the starting third baseman, available as the reserve catcher, but it didn’t take long for that plan to fail. In addition, George Kottaras, Roberto Perez and Chris Gimenez picked up starts down the line with Perez eventually...

Do the Indians have the best catching duo in the American League?

Yan Gomes admitted during Tribe Fest that he was leery the first half of last season about taking days off due to the Indians' lack of a consistent backup at catcher. Carlos Santana played in 10 games behind the plate, but that ended once he suffered a concussion in late May. George Kottaras was up briefly a couple times and had a two home-run game.
