Today in Tribe History: April 10, 1986

1986 – Current Cleveland Indians ace and Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber is born in Birmingham, Alabama. Kluber was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the fourth round of the 2007 draft, but was dealt to the Indians at the non-waiver trade deadline as part of a three team deal in 2010.

At the trade deadline in 2010, the Padres found themselves in an unexpected position: first place in the National League West, 60-42, 1.5 games up on the Giants and at least seven games up on the rest of the division.

Still On The Market - Free Agent Squad

Offseason recap: Indians meet goals to date

The good news is that the Indians don't have to spend the next month negotiating or preparing for an arbitration hearing now that all six of their eligible players have agreed to deals. For those hoping that means this can possibly free something up for a right-handed bat, there's hardly anything on the free-agent market.

Reds decline option on Ryan Ludwick

The Cincinnati Reds have declined the 2015 option on outfielder Ryan Ludwick. Ludwick, 36, would have made $9 million had the option been picked up. Given that the Reds owe him $4.5 million as part of the buyout the team must feel the 36-year-old has nothing left to contribute. A big 2012 campaign landed him a two-year deal worth $18 million from the Reds. After playing in just...
