4/17 Recap: Silly Sixth Stymies Star’s Shut-Out

Player of the Game Corey Kluber didn’t get a decision tonight, but he deserved one as he continued the run of great outings by the Indians top three starters. In eight innings, Kluber threw 96 pitches (67 strikes), struck out eight and allowed just two runs on eight hits. As has been the case after each of his starts, Kluber now leads the league with 25 strike outs (tied with...

Life Without Yan

Over the weekend, not only did the Cleveland Indians manage to lose three straight games to their division rival Detroit Tigers, but they managed to lose one of their most valuable position players in the process when center fielder Rajai Davis slid into the side of Yan Gomes’ knee. Thankfully, the MRI revealed that it was a mild sprain of his MCL and not a season-ending injury...

Sorting through the end of the roster: 2015 Indians Preview

With just two weeks before the season begins in Houston, manager Terry Francona is not far from making the decisions that will shape the end of the Indians’ opening day roster. With spots up for grabs in the outfield, on the starting staff, and in the bullpen, the Tribe has some camp battles that are still in full swing. Who will round out the utility spots? Who’s nabbing that...

Perez Gives Tribe Top Catching Duo

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. This one-two punch gives the Tribe one of the top catching duos in all of baseball. Drafted by the Indians in the 33rd round of the 2008 MLB June Amateur Draft from Florida Gateway College, Perez spent five seasons in the Tribe’s...

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. It wasn't until early July though...

2014 Cleveland Indians Winter League Results

For some, 162 games are not enough and as they have done almost since baseball’s inception, many of the Indians current and future players were involved in international baseball leagues during the off-season. This year, including those who played in the Arizona Fall League (which was already covered), 38 Indians continued their season through December. With the conclusion of the...

Columbus Kids Contributing for Cleveland

When injuries mount on the big league roster, who do the Cleveland Indians call? The Columbus Clippers. The Clippers have answered that call throughout the year, as is their job. Despite an ever-changing roster, they lead the International League’s West Division by five games with a 73-62 record after Saturday night’s loss to Indianapolis. The Indians, meanwhile, are 65-63 and...

Young Indians bounce back against Houston

CLEVELAND -- Youth on a team can be a rollercoaster. There is plenty of frustration due to growing pains but then there are the times when you see them learn from their mistakes and continue to develop. After an implosion in the final two innings Friday night, the Indians' rookies came through 24 hours later in a 3-2 win over Houston at Progressive Field. In the ninth inning, Tyler...

Holt and Ramirez Provide Late Inning Heroics; Indians 3, Astros 2

The Indians have been looking for a spark in their offense to keep them going in the second half of the season, and they’ve found it in the youngsters from Columbus. Tyler Holt led late inning rally who was then bunted over by Roberto Perez and then scored in walk off fashion by Jose Ramirez. This was the Indians tenth walk off of the season. The Indians are battered and bruised...

CLEVELAND -- Asdrubal Cabrera was trading jokes with Roberto Perez, Justin Masterson was discussing his next start and Terry Francona was on his usual even keel. If anyone in the Indians clubhouse was feeling stressed with the trade deadline two days away, they weren't showing it.

Indians 3, Twins 4: It smelled funny from the start

8:29 PM – We join our heroes in Minneapolis, during the top of the second inning after an uneventful first. Much has been made in the booth of the fact that this is the Indians’ first trip back to Target Field since clinching their 2013 playoff spot.  That is somewhat hard to believe.  I find it much easier to believe that Roberto Perez just grounded into an inning-ending double...

Getting to Know Roberto Perez

Burning River Baseball recognized Robert Perez (@robebo23 on twitter) as one of the Indians top prospects back in April, mentioning then that he was likely to be the Tribe’s best bet at back-up catcher this year, but most fans are likely just hearing about Perez for the first time after he was called up earlier this week. After making the most of his first career start, with a...

Indians 9, Yankees 3: Two games in one, Perez has the most fun

I was all set to have this one written. My main topics were going to be how the Indians defense, easily the worst in baseball, just continues to let the team down and cost them runs the offense usually cannot get back. I was also going to go in on the bats who once again turned a below average starter into Cy Freaking Young. Then came the seventh inning, or should I say the start...

Newbies Perez, Dickerson generating unexpected spark to Tribe lineup

CLEVELAND -- One injury can create a domino effect that ripples across not just a lineup but the entire roster. When Michael Bourn was placed on the 15-day disabled list last Sunday, Chris Dickerson was part of the Pirates organization in Triple-A Indianapolis and Roberto Perez was in Columbus. Both played pivotal roles in the Indians' 9-3 win over the Yankees on Thursday at Progressive...
