Nick Swisher’s (brutal) season comes to an end

Is age catching up to Nick Swisher? The Tribe first baseman was evaluated on Tuesday and was found to have medial meniscus wear in both of his knees. Less than 24 hours later, Swisher will undergo arthroscopic debridement surgery to repair the chronic pain. He will subsequently miss eight-to-ten weeks for recovery, effectively ending his 2014 season with the team. Swisher was...

Clevinger Happy for New Teammates and Organization

It started out like most other days on August 7 for Michael Clevinger. The former fourth-round draft pick from Seminole Community College—by way of The Citadel—was at the ballpark going about his business when the news came. “I actually thought I was in trouble at first,” Clevinger said. “I was doing my routine—I came in a couple hours before the game to do my lifting—then...

Fantasy Roundup: Bauer, Anderson, Fiers

You couldn’t have scripted a worse beginning of the game for Trevor Bauer. The first five batters reached base – four on hard hit balls (two doubles, one single, and a home run) and the other via the walk. For the first five hitters he wasn’t commanding the fastball and Twins hitters were not fooled by the splitter down and out of the zone, which led to a lot of hitter’s...

Gomes, Holt and Bullpen Overcome Early Deficit; Indians 7, Twins 5

As a thunderstorm swept through northeast Ohio, cable and satellite dishes may have made Tuesday night’s Indians’ game even harder to believe. Because if your satellite cut out after Trevor Bauer allowed five runs in the first inning to Minnesota in the first six hitters, it may have been quite a surprise to find out the Tribe chipped away against Kyle Gibson to come back and...

Indians extend Scott Atchison

He came to camp as a 38-year old non-roster invitee hoping to hang on for one more season in the sun. By May, he was not just a fixture in the pen, but a favorite of manager Terry Francona. Now here we are in August and Scott Atchison, the bullpen’s jack of all trades, has received a contract extension. He will toil in the pen in 2015 with a club option for 2016. “Old-Man Atch”...

Second Thoughts: Indians continue to lack consistency

Consistency Nowhere to be Found Inconsistency is the only thing that’s been consistent with the Indians this season. Their latest feat has been the offense’s struggles to back a starting pitching staff that has pitched well of late. It wasn’t much more than a week ago where the big question was where the team was going to find starters to complement Corey Kluber. Then they...

Video: Corey Kluber auditions for ‘True Detective’

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber has been seemingly unhittable since the All-Star break. The team's ace has posted a 0.76 ERA since the Midsummer Classic. But he also possesses another hidden talent that many fans and analysts alike may not know about—acting. Kluber is known for his stoic, all-business demeanor when on the mound, which has drawn comparisons to Rust...

Corey Kluber has been dominant for the Cleveland Indians

Corey Kluber has been an elite pitcher since the All-Star break, and has fanned at least 10 batters in four of his last six starts. The Cleveland Indians are a team that has been fighting for their playoff lives for the past couple of weeks. Just when the team looks like they have waved the white flag, they find a way to string together a collection of victories. A main reason for...

Pitcher Profile: Danny Salazar Has AAA In His Name!

Shameless cross-pollination!  Yes, just as shameless as Tony Parker cross-pollinating Brent Barry's wife, I'm hijacking the open of my post to let you know Fantasy Basketball rankings have begun!  I hope Grey doesn't suspend me for conduct detrimental to the team... I've got my top 50 up earlier than anywhere else (well, no one has recent rankings up!) and if you...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Dominant starting pitching, slumbering bats, and Ubaldo being Ubaldo

This weekend series was once again another example of what this 2014 Cleveland Indians team is all about. The AL East leading Baltimore Orioles came to Cleveland with the biggest margin of any division top dog in baseball. Their offense is beastly, with power up and down the lineup. So naturally the story of the weekend was the Indians starting pitching. You know, the group that...

Remain Cautious(ly Optimistic) with Carrasco in Rotation

The Cleveland Indians have been starting a pitcher in their rotation that looks like Carlos Carrasco the last two times through the rotation. Physically, he looks like the pitcher the Indians traded for in July 2008 and promoted to their big league roster as early as September 2009, but once the ball leaves his hand, it hasn’t looked much like the previous parts of the last five...

Indians Take Two From O’s

The Cleveland Indians are back on the rise. Well, sort of. After a rather solid weekend of baseball against the Baltimore Orioles, the Indians are feeling pretty good. They would have been feeling much better if they could have executed a sweep of the O’s on Sunday afternoon, but two out of three definitely is not all that bad. The Indians looked like a team ready for a surge against...

The WAR Room: Ramsey surging in Columbus

The WAR Room is back again, bringing you the 2014 advanced stats for every Cleveland minor leaguer. After looking at the pitchers last week, today we focus on the hitters. Of course, it is always important to keep context in mind, just like with scouting. A pitcher who is old for his level using that experience to succeed against young, inexperienced hitters must be taken with...
