Michael Martinez is probably a really great person. The Cleveland Indians didn’t exactly send out their A-Squad today. That’s not to take anything away from Derek Holland shutting them down, or the Chicago White Sox lineup making Danny Salazar regret waking up this morning, because the Indians backup lineup is not too shabby, either. Just be glad you don’t have to watch this...
Indians manager Terry Francona's eyes widened at the mention of the play on Sunday morning. One night earlier, catcher Yan Gomes threw out Tyler Saladino from his knees. The quickness and strength displayed in only a few seconds blew Francona away.

CHICAGO- Heading into Sunday’s series finale with the Cleveland Indians, the Chicago White Sox (7-9) are in dire need of some offense. The first place Indians (10-7) have won the first two games of this series by a combined score of 10-0, and have dropped the Sox to fourth place in the American League Central Division in the process.

The Doc is in, pitching is back, and Yan Gomes actually hit the ball. The Cleveland Indians are back! Well, they never really went anywhere, but seeing everyone struggle at the same time to start the season was torture. Those struggles appear to finally be over. The starting rotation — namely Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and yes even Josh Tomlin — strung together a series...
Last season, Jose Ramirez took the baseball world by surprise. After struggling for a couple of years to get his footing at the Major League Baseball level, Ramirez enjoyed one of the game’s bigger breakout performances in 2016. Some feel he may have been the MVP of last year’s Cleveland Indians – a club that won an American League Central Division championship, the AL pennant...

Bob Feller allows just one hit, but is nailed with the loss as the Cleveland Indians fall 1-0 to the St. Louis Browns. The game was unique as a whole as both teams were limited to just one hit each in the contest. Feller allowed a leadoff triple to Bobby Young to start the game and he scored in the next at bat on an error by the third baseman. Feller retired 17 straight batters after...

Carlos Carrasco briefly pleaded his case in the visitors' dugout, but it was no use. After eight brilliant innings against the White Sox on Saturday night, the pitcher's night was done. Indians manager Terry Francona did not want to give in to unecessary pressure.

Chances are slim that the candles on manager Terry Francona’s 58th birthday cake withstood the strong winds generated by three Indians home runs and plenty of swings and misses by the White Sox as Carlos Carrasco worked eight innings of three-hit shutout baseball and the Indians blanked the White Sox again, 7-0, on Saturday night. Carrasco (2-1, 1.65 ERA) channeled his inner Corey...

Who were the top Tribe prospect performers the past seven days? It was a tight race last week, but 2016 fifth-round draft pick Conner Capel, the only prep position player from last year’s draft to make the full-season Lake County club, walked away with POTW honors after earning 35 percent of the vote. Without further ado, here are the Tribe's top performers from the past week...
Apparently we are at the point in professional sports where 23-year-old baseball players are turning down $100 million in cold hard cash. We knew it was coming. It was just a matter of time. But that doesn’t make it any more absurd.According to Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci, Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor just recently turned down an extension that would have...
Whether it be rock or hip hop, these are the greatest collaborations between some of music's biggest names and top artists from Latin America.
After Justin Verlander gave up a career-high nine earned runs in just four innings on Saturday, the Detroit Tigers are looking for answers.The Cleveland Indians teed off on Verlander for three home runs in a 13-6 victory despite the fact that Verlander’s stuff looked sharp. Though he left a few pitches up, on a few occasions, the Indians seemed to be right on top of whatever Verlander...
A trusted piece of Jason Kipnis’ gear is missing so he turned to social media for help.Since his days as a collegiate baseball player, the now 30-year-old Indians second baseman has had on a white shinguard when he stepped into the batter’s box. Unfortunately, it has gone missing and Kipnis has found out the manufacturer no longer makes it anymore. That hasn’t deterred him...
The first two seasons of Francisco Lindor’s MLB career couldn’t have gone much better – especially when specifically talking about his individual performance. He’s paired Gold Glove defense with more-than-adequate production at the plate, but if we had to nitpick, his offense did take a slight step back last year compared to his rookie campaign.Despite getting over 200 more...
Pretty much ever since Rob Manfred took over as commissioner of baseball, he’s made noise about forcing the Cleveland Indians to give up their racist Chief Wahoo logo.And over the past couple years, officials from MLB have repeatedly applied some gentle pressure, as the team has not-so-heartily committed to phasing out the image.Well finally, the league seems to be getting serious...
Tonight, the Chicago Cubs have their first home game since snapping their 108-year World Series drought with a thrilling Game 7 victory over the Cleveland Indians last November.The 2017 Wrigley Field opener also means raising the championship banner as part of pregame ceremonies, and the Cubs really went all-out with the special night.Nobody really knew what was going on, as the...
The Cleveland Indians enter the 2017 season with high hopes after a 2016 season in which they captured the American League Pennant for the first time since 1997. Though they were unsuccessful in claiming the World Series crown, there is plenty of reason to believe that the Tribe can repeat last season’s success, and perhaps improve on it. A week into the 2017 MLB season the Cleveland...
Baseball always seems to have strange injuries. Already this spring, Cincinnati Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias injured his elbow and hip falling down in shower. And who can forget Trevor Bauer's infamous drone-related injury during the 2016 postseason?Welcome to the Yardbarker roundtable, where we can't help but recall some of the more ridiculous ways MLB players have been injured...
How Did Franciso Lindor Become a Great Shortstop? His Dad Used To Smash Grounders At Him From The Top of a Steep Hill

It’s 1967 2017…can we please get rid of Chief Wahoo? Turns out, yes. And we might be closer to seeing the red-faced, smiling logo eliminated from Major League Baseball landscape sooner than previously hoped. You see, shortly after the Winter Meetings, commissioner Rob Manfred met with Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan about getting rid of the toothy stereotype. That’s good...
