Francona expects Kluber will be 'fine' by ALDS

The Indians are currently down their top three starters, but ace Corey Kluber is not expected to be sidelined for long. Barring any setbacks, Kluber's mild quadriceps strain should not get in the way of him logging a couple bullpen sessions in the days leading up to the American League Division Series.

Hillcats Wrap-Up Another Successful Season

For the second consecutive season as a Cleveland Indians’ affiliate, the High-A Lynchburg Hillcats reached the Carolina League playoffs. This year they took it one step further, winning the Northern Division playoff against the Potomac Nationals and advancing to the Mills Cup Championship before bowing to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, who would win their second consecutive Carolina...

Indians outright T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus

The Cleveland Indians announced on Wednesday that the club has outrighted left-handed pitcher T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus. The team previously designated him for assignment last Tuesday, Sept. 20, in order to make room for right-hander Adam Plutko on the 40-man roster. The move also makes House eligible for minor league free agency. House pitched […] The post Indians outright...

The Cleveland Indians should not fear October jinxes

The Cleveland Indians are a good team. They have nothing to fear from October. Now that the playoffs are assured for the Cleveland Indians, it doesn’t feel as much like playing with fate to talk about what could be once October dawns. Any fan or baseball scribe has countless thoughts about what can or will be in the postseason. But when you have any sort of rooting interest, whether...

Nearly a Decade Later, Comparing Central Champions

On October 23rd, 2007, the Cleveland Indians clinched the Central Division title in a year that would ultimately see them take the eventual World Champion Boston Red Sox to game seven of the ALCS. After winning the first five Central Division titles ever (1995 through 1999), it took the Indians nine years to return to the top of the division after that 2007 appearance when the Indians...

Indians News and Notes: Will Video Recording Superstar Trevor Bauer Start Game 1 of the ALDS?

He's also very good at pitching. Last night's game isn't worth talking about. The Columbus Clippers got dominated by Miguel Cabrera and Justin Verlander. Jim Rosenhaus played a mean left field, though. A bad Tuesday aside, it's true! The Indians do have a chance to win the World Series! A 9% chance, according to Fangraphs. Here are 5 reasons why that 9% could become 100. -----...

Kluber's injury (quad strain) could affect his postseason

DETROIT (AP) Cleveland's most pressing concern was the health of its ace. Tuesday's 12-0 loss to Detroit was just another game. Corey Kluber has a mild quadriceps strain, which could force the AL Central champions to delay his first playoff start. It's another blow for the Indians, who already were missing starting pitchers Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar. ''It's obviously not...

With division won, injury-plagued Indians eye playoffs

DETROIT (AP) Corey Kluber had an MRI in Cleveland on Tuesday, a day after he left his start at Detroit with right groin tightness. Manager Terry Francona said he didn't have results yet. He said Kluber was ''a little stiff, but not overly tender'' - so that was cause for optimism. The Indians clinched the AL Central title Monday, but their postseason outlook has taken a bit of...

Indians party in Detroit and push Tigers to brink of postseason elimination

As good as the Cleveland Indians have been at home, it was fitting that they clinched the American League Central title Monday at Comerica Park. After all, a huge reason that Cleveland was able to break open the champagne — the good stuff, thanks to Mike Napoli — and the MLB-approved beer was their season-long dominance of […] The post Indians party in Detroit and push Tigers...

Indians Clinch Division and Are Ready for More

Read this intro, then close your eyes, and take a deep breath before continuing on. Let Hammy’s words, “Cleveland! We WILL have an October to remember!” sink in. That feeling we all had in our gut just a few months ago has returned, where we all just know for whatever reason that this season was different from anything else. The fans know it, the players know it, and just like...

Coco Crisp Doing Well in Limited Role

When the Indians brought back Coco Crisp at the August 31 waiver trading deadline, it was difficult to see what kind of impact he would have on the team. To start off, the thinking goes, it would be hard for the 36-year-old veteran to get at bats. The outfield was already crowded enough, with Abraham Almonte, Rajai Davis, Lonnie Chisenhall, Tyler Naquin, and Brandon Guyer all splitting...

The Cleveland Indians fell one home win short of tying a franchise record

But this is still one of the best at-home Indians teams we have ever seen. The Cleveland Indians wrapped up their last home series of the season by dropping two-of-three against the Chicago White Sox. They failed to clinch the American League Central, despite some help from the Kansas City Royals, but they still have a 99 percent chance of completing that goal before the season...

Hope for Cleveland Indians dwindling

The Cleveland Indians have all but sealed up the American League Central Division title, which in a perfect world would mean that there should be reason for optimism. Not this year. Though the Tribe has been able to secure a 90-win season–they are 90-65, with seven games remaining–it has come at a steep cost. In recent weeks the Indians have lost two of their top three starting...

How Cleveland’s Injuries Changed Our World Series Odds

Just a little more than a week ago, the Indians had a reportedly healthy Danny Salazar, a totally healthy Carlos Carrasco, and their odds of winning the World Series, according to our projections, sat at 13.4%. Aside from a 24-hour window back on July 5 during which Cleveland’s odds jumped up to 14.2%, last week’s figure was the highest of the year for the soon-to-be American...

The Cleveland Indians are seven games in front of the Detroit Tigers in their division and own the second best record in the American League.
