Versatility is the Key

The Indians have a problem. Well, they have many problems, but one can be spotted and rectified fairly easily.

4/20 Recap: Allen’s Bungles Blow Bauer’s Beauty

Player of the Game Adding seven more strike outs to his season total, Trevor Bauer has taken back the American League lead in K’s (26) from his teammate Corey Kluber and tied Clayton Kershaw for the Major League lead.

4/17 Recap: Silly Sixth Stymies Star’s Shut-Out

Player of the Game Corey Kluber didn’t get a decision tonight, but he deserved one as he continued the run of great outings by the Indians top three starters.

Chasing After Chacin

Early on Tuesday, the Indians made a group of moves essentially to increase the depth of the pitching staff, even before Carlos Carrasco was cracked in the skull by a line drive. Essentially, this was a move that saw Shaun Marcum designated for assignment to make room for Brett Hayes on both the 25 and […]

4/11 Recap: Sands Storm Not Enough To Deflate Detroit

4/10 Recap: Tigers Nick McAllister to Death In Home Opener Loss

Roster Update: Prior to tonight’s game, Jerry Sands was added to the Indians 25 man roster to give the team some extra bench depth.
