Indians notes: Francisco Lindor won’t be making major league debut this season

Jose Ramirez, Andy Wilkins

CLEVELAND — Though the seasons of Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus are completed, manager Terry Francona said Sunday there would be no additional September call-ups. That means the Indians’ top prospect — shortstop Francisco Lindor — will not be making his much-anticipated major league debut. Lindor, 20, had a productive third full professional season, earning Read More…

Indians 2, White Sox 0: Carrasco stays hot

Carlos Carrasco

CLEVELAND — If you saw Carlos Carrasco at the beginning of the season, you wouldn’t recognize him now. He still stands 6-foot-3 and weighs around 215 pounds, but the right-hander is just pitching a whole lot better. Yanked from the rotation and banished to the bullpen, Carrasco has returned in dominant fashion. Sunday he turned Read More…

Cody Allen, J.D. Martinez

CLEVELAND — The Indians were three outs away from celebrating a hard-fought victory over three-time defending Central Division champion Detroit on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.

Read More…

Mike Aviles

CLEVELAND — Ace Corey Kluber has lifted the Indians up on so many occasions this season that it was almost shocking to see the right-hander let them down Monday at Progressive Field. In the opener of a pivotal four-game series against Central Division rival Detroit, Kluber offered up his worst outing of the season as Read More…

Indians notes: Tribe adds reinforcements as rosters expand

CLEVELAND — The Indians made a wealth of moves Monday prior to the series opener of a pivotal four-game series with Detroit.

Veteran designated hitter Jason Giambi was activated from the 60-day Read More…

Indians 3, Astros 1: Trevor Bauer continues rotation’s strong stretch

Trevor Bauer

CLEVELAND — Indians starting pitchers keep setting them up and knocking them down. Right-hander Trevor Bauer continued a dominating stretch for Cleveland’s rotation Sunday afternoon at Progressive Field, helping the Indians to a series-clinching 3-1 victory over the Astros. “We haven’t been scoring a ton of runs and we’ve won a couple of series in Read More…

Indians squander good pitching

Dexter Fowler, Mike Aviles

CLEVELAND — The Indians got another top-shelf effort from a starting pitcher Friday night in the series opener against Houston. Unfortunately for them, they also got another bottom-feeding performance from their offense and defense. Right-hander Carlos Carrasco pitched well but was pretty much forced to go it alone in a 5-1 loss to the fourth-place Read More…
