Raburn to have season ending surgery

Ryan Raburn's season is over as the Indians announced before Wednesday's game against Houston that he will have surgery on his left knee in the coming days to repair a torn meniscus. Raburn suffered the injury during the third inning of last Saturday's game against the Tigers. "I don't want no pity party by any means but it has been a tough year. I just have...

A Promising Season Ended Too Soon for the RubberDucks

After an offseason of rebranding, fresh faces, and boat load of renovations, the Double-A Akron RubberDucks came into the season with a promising season ahead of them. In his inaugural season as the RubberDucks manager, Dave Wallace looked on to lead what could have been one of the best Cleveland Indians minor league team in recent history. Unfortunately, the season ended earlier...

Corey Kluber makes Cy Young case with 14 strikeouts in win

This just in. Corey Kluber is good a baseball. While Opening Day starter, Justin Masterson, was a complete and utter flop and later traded to St. Louis at the deadline, the Tribe’s number two turned himself into not just the ace of the staff, but a Cy Young candidate in the process. Kluber is flat out special. What we have seen from him this year may be even more impressive than...

Carrasco hits mound as Tribe holds out hope

The Cleveland Indians may be facing a daunting task to make their second straight appearance in the wild-card round, but as long as the math works out they're not going to give up the fight. Carlos Carrasco looks to bounce back from his first loss since joining the rotation as he faces the Houston Astros on the road Wednesday night. Cleveland (77-73) trails Kansas City by five...

Status Quo is not how Tribe should go

Before the start of the 2014 season, the Cleveland Indians allowed 340.2 innings pitched from starting pitchers Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir to walk out their door, while only banking heavily on a natural progression from their young starting pitchers to shoulder the burden left behind. A somewhat inconsistent offense was also expected to become suddenly consistent, and the team...

Three under the radar offseason targets for the Indians

My last column on the idea of the Indians acquiring Adrian Beltre generated a lot of talk. When I glanced among the comments I noticed a lot of people were hesitant to move a prospect the level of Clint Frazier. To get something you have to give up something, and to me Beltre is an ideal fit so parting with Frazier is worth it. The only downside with him is salary and age. But...

Corey Kluber strikes out 14 as Indians beat Houston, 4-2, to end 4-game losing streak

The stopper arrived Tuesday night for the Indians. That would be Corey Kluber. The K stands for strikeout. Kluber not only stopped a four-game losing streak, but he struck out a career-high 14 batters as the Indians beat Houston, 4-2, at Minute Maid Park. It was the fourth time Kluber (16-9, 2.42) has stopped a four-game losing streak this season. The strikeout binge gave Kluber...

Kluber Kontinues to Karve His Place into Tribe Record BooK; Indians 4, Astros 2

They grow up so fast. It was just two years ago Corey Kluber made his second start of his career. In his first two big league starts, he allowed nine runs. Houston’s Nick Tropeano made his second career start on Tuesday night and they should hope he matures as quickly as Kluber because two years later he’s carving his name into the Indians’ record book. Kluber struck out 14...

Altuve sets single-season Astros' hit mark in loss to Indians' Kluber

  Jose Altuve enjoyed a record-breaking moment in his amazing season. The Houston Astros' second baseman broke Craig Biggio's club record for hits in a season with his 211th of the year, a single up the middle in the seventh inning Tuesday night during a 4-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians. Altuve, hitless in his first two at-bats, tied the mark with a double down the left...

9/16 Recap: Kluber Sets New High & Moves Higher in the Record Books

Player of the Game While it wasn’t his best start of the season, tonight was the night that Corey Kluber struck out the most batters, impressive considering his already imposing K totals (more later). In addition to a career high 14 strike outs, Kluber threw seven innings and allowed just a single earned run, scored in the first inning. With the Indians almost assuredly out of...

Cleveland's Kluber compiling impressive numbers

After losing his third straight start Sept. 1, many were questioning if Corey Kluber was fatigued or had hit the wall after being dominant for two months. In the past three starts, the right-hander has returned to midseason form. On Tuesday in Houston, Kluber struck out a career-high 14 and won his third straight game as the Indians beat the Astros 4-2 to snap a four-game losing...

Scoring change hits Kluber

Corey Kluber saw his ERA go up slightly without throwing a pitch. The Indians right-hander had three earned runs added to him after Major League Baseball made a scoring change related to the third inning of Kluber's Sept. 1 start against Detroit. With two outs and the bases empty, Miguel Cabrera hit a fly ball that originally was ruled as an error on Mike Aviles. That has now...

Tribe Happenings: There is a lot of blame to pass around

Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… So who is to blame? The Indians went into Detroit this past weekend and were swept out of the Motor City. They played hard and were setup to win two games late, but due to the timely heroics once again from Tigers hitters they lost both games in excruciating fashion. The hangover from that sweep carried over into Monday night’s...

Second Thoughts Game #149: Indians 1, Astros 3

McAllister a Bright Spot The last thing the Indians could have afforded was going 2-5 last week. For all intents and purposes, the Indians playoff hopes are over. Still, a four game stretch against the Astros seemed promising for the team to get back to their winning ways. As has been a constant and frustrating theme, the Indians offense didn’t do enough to support Zach McAllister...

Can Corey Kluber win the AL Cy Young?

Having the luxury of watching Corey Kluber pitch on a weekly basis has been one of the few fortunate occurrences of the 2014 MLB season. Kluber has endeared himself to Cleveland on the mound (where he’s been nearly unhittable) and off of it where he spearheads memes about teammates (Scott Atchison is so old…). And while Kluber has shown Cy Young qualities throughout the season...

Tribe bats non-existent in fourth straight loss

The Indians—oh my beloved Cleveland Indians. They are teetering on the brink of bad and boring. Well, at least the offense is. We have seen one solid pitching performance go by the wayside too many times since the All-Star break. This time it was spot starter Zach McAllister who did all he could to keep his team in the game while the bats offered little run support in a 3-1 loss...

Brantley: 'We're in this thing until they tell me we're out of it'

The Cleveland Indians' slim playoff hopes are fading fast and they may be out of it entirely by the time they leave Houston if they can't contain Jose Altuve. Cleveland will look to avoid a fifth straight loss Tuesday night against the Astros.

Barnard Rose From Indians Secretary to AL President

Since the founding of the American League in 1901, Byron “Ban” Johnson had ruled with an iron fist. The game in theory was run by a national commission of presidents of the National and American leagues, and another owner or team executive, but by all accounts, Johnson, a former sportswriter from Cincinnati, was the brains of the outfit. But Kennesaw Mountain Landis’ appointment...
