Gomes showing he's #ASGWorthy this month

Yan Gomes struggled to resist the temptation to tinker when he encountered offensive rough patches last season. He toyed with his swing and altered his approach, and then those patches turned into swaths and the catcher's campaign went from bad to worse.

Today in Tribe History: May 25, 1963

The Cleveland Indians send catcher (and their future manager) Doc Edwards and cash west to Kansas City in exchange for the Athletics’ Joe Azcue and Dick Howser. Edwards, signed by the Tribe in 1958, had appeared in just 63 games for Cleveland in parts of two seasons with the club as a reserve catcher. He had played just ten games in the 1963 season, hitting .258, at the time of...

Reds’ speedster Billy Hamilton scores go-ahead run from first on single to left field

Cincinnati Reds’ center fielder Billy Hamilton is known for his remarkable speed, especially on the basepaths, and he showed that off in amazing fashion Wednesday night. With the Reds trailing the Cleveland Indians 3-2 in the top of the ninth, Arismendy Alcantara on third and Hamilton on first, and Cody Allen pitching for Cleveland, Hamilton took off with the pitch and Zach Cozart...

Indians and Reds Continue Home-and-Home Series from Cleveland

After each club earned a win in Cincinnati to open their interleague home-and-home series (or maybe, a road-and-road series for the pessimist in the crowd), the Reds and the Indians will wrap up the four-game series with two games from Progressive Field on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The Reds (21-24) won Monday’s series opener from Great American Ball Park with solo runs in...

Yan Gomes isn’t terrible anymore

The Indians catcher has had a huge bounce-back season. Cleveland Indians catcher Yan Gomes wasn’t just bad in 2016. For a legitimate major leaguer, which Gomes had long established him as by that point, bad is something like half a win and a wRC+ around 75. But for Gomes, that would have been a dream season compared to what he actually went through. Much digital ink has been spilled...

MLB Draft 2017: Cleveland Indians outfielder system depth

We begin our MLB Draft 2017 coverage with a look at the depth of outfielders in the Indians farm system. The biggest question mark for the Cleveland Indians right now on offense is the outfield. Michael Brantley is one of the best in the game over in left field, and Lonnie Chisenhall has been an above-average player when roaming either right or center, but Chisenhall’s currently...

Cleveland Indians win with homers and hustle

Brad Zimmer hustled, Jason Kipnis hustled, Jose Ramirez hustled, and Trevor Bauer hustled if a pitcher can really hustle I don’t know. Hustle, hustle, hustle. It’s a sports cliche as old as sports, but the Cleveland Indians hustled all game long and it resulted in a 5-3, series-opening win against the Houston Astros. Terry Francona reportedly talked with players prior to today’s...

What is the biggest concern for the Cleveland Indians in 2017?

The Cleveland Indians have not been firing on all cylinders to the season (at least by the standards of last season) with a 20-19 record heading into their weekend series in Texas with the Houston Astros, who own the best record in baseball at 29-12. There have been a few issues that the Indians have had in their first 39 games to start the season but which of their issues is the...

Why the Cleveland Indians’ slow start is no cause for panic

After underachieving for the first month of the season, it appeared that the Cleveland Indians were finally hitting their stride; they had won 12 of their last 18 games and held a 17-13 record – good enough for the top spot in the AL Central.  Since then, the Tribe has dropped six of their last nine games and find themselves in third place behind the Minnesota Twins and Detroit...

Cleveland Indians have best local TV ratings in MLB, despite poor in-person attendance

For decades and decades, fans, media and franchises measured a baseball team’s popularity by ballpark attendance. And according to that criteria, the Cleveland Indians—currently 28th in Major League Baseball in average home attendance—don’t get a lot of love. But of course it’s no longer sensible to measure a team’s audience by its in-person attendance. With most teams’...

Cleveland Indians Minor League Player of the Week: May 12 - May 18

Who were the top Tribe prospect performers the past seven days? It wasn’t even a contest last week as Triston McKenzie steamrolled the competition with 75 percent of the vote, thanks to his 14 strikeout performance over six shutout innings. This week, some young lower-level talent make themselves known with some strong games while a few veterans show they still have plenty of...

David Ortiz critical of former Twins manager in new book

While David Ortiz will always be remembered as a member of the Boston Red Sox, his MLB career began with the Minnesota Twins. In his upcoming memoir, Big Papi shared some displeasure with the Minnesota organization, specifically regarding his old manager Tom Kelly.“I know he’s recognized as a good baseball man, but he struck me as a guy who believed his players were dumb,”...

Matthew McCo​naughey spotted at Indians game

Matthew McConaughey is in Cleveland to shoot an upcoming film, titled "White Boy Rick." While in town, the actor and sports junkie attended Monday night’s Indians-Rays game at Progressive Field while rocking a hat which simply said “Alright.” He also had a very Rust Cohle look going, minus the cigarettes and Lone Star beers. That is, of course, a reference to McConaughey...

Carlos Carrasco leaves start for Indians with pectoral tightness

Carrasco allowed a run in each of the innings he pitched and was charged with a fifth in the fourth inning, when he exited the game.

Francona takes shot at Kevin Cash with scoreboard stats

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona is a well-known practical joker. And with Kevin Cash’s Tampa Bay Rays in town, Francona couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a shot at his friend. Cash played under Francona with the Red Sox in 2007 and 2008 and worked for him as bullpen coach with the Indians in 2013 and 2014 before being hired by the Rays to replace Joe Maddon as...

Painting a New Picture of Jose Ramirez

In your mind, you might have an idea of the relative strengths of the Indians’ Jose Ramirez. He’s what many might term a “good little player” — and that’s not a comment on his 5-foot-8 stature. It’s about the fact that he can run a little, hit for a little power, make a little contact, and play a few positions. Useful, but maybe not a star. Then you might look at his...
