    There’s been a lot of speculation this winter about free agent shortstop Stephen Drew potentially landing with the Mets, but the team has publicly thrown their support behind Ruben Tejada in recent weeks. Mets special assistant J.P. Ricciardi is the latest example, saying on WEEI’s “Hot Stove Show” that the team is happy with the…

  6. Cardinals put faith in defensive numbers in signing Jhonny Peralta

    Nov 24, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT

    Jhonny Peralta

    Jhonny Peralta should be a terrible defensive shortstop. Defensive ability peaks significantly younger than offensive ability, and Peralta wasn’t really any good defensively in what should have been his prime. As a 24-year-old in 2006, he was the game’s second worst shortstop by UZR. In 2007, he was the fifth worst. By 2008, Peralta graded…

    Oct 5, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game One

    A triple and a two-run homer from Yoenis Cespedes simply wasn’t enough for the A’s Friday as the Tigers took Game 1 of the ALDS 3-2. Cespedes was responsible for two-thirds of Oakland’s hits in the game. The other was a little infield single from Brandon Moss in the seventh. Immediately after that was when…

  8. Big-ticket signings fail to lift Indians in loss

    Oct 3, 2013, 12:09 AM EDT

    Nick Swisher

    When the Indians added Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn in free agency, it was supposed to energize the fans and signal the start of a new era. And it probably did help with the latter, if not the former. However, while neither Swisher nor Bourn went bust in year one in Cleveland, the performances of…

    Tampa Bay has increased its early lead in this American League Wild Card Game in Cleveland. James Loney and Evan Longoria hit consecutive one-out singles in the top of the fourth inning and then Desmond Jennings — who was hobbled near the end of the regular season by a badly-strained left hamstring — punched a…

    Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez turned in a solid effort while the offense provided more than enough support to cut their deficit in the AL Central to five games. Meanwhile, the Tigers lost 1-0 to the Royals. The offense put up a five-spot in the fourth on a two-run home run by Asdrubal Cabrera and a…

  13. Asdrubal Cabrera turned a ridiculous double play

    Sep 8, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT

    asdrubal cabrera

    In case you missed it, Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera turned an incredibly acrobatic double play Saturday in Cleveland’s 9-4 win over the Mets. Jason Kipnis fielded a hard-hit Zach Lutz grounder with a runner on first base and one out, and air-mailed a backhanded flip to the second base bag. Cabrera averted disaster by leaping…

    Sep 1, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    It was a pitcher’s duel in Detroit this afternoon as the Tigers and Indians wrapped up a three-game weekend series. Tigers starter Justin Verlander held the Tribe scoreless through seven innings, allowing just four hits and walking two while striking out six. Indians starter Danny Salazar matched him, holding the Tigers at bay through six…

  15. Why is Asdrubal Cabrera batting cleanup for the Indians?

    Aug 9, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    Asdrubal Cabrera is hitting .243 with eight homers and a .397 slugging percentage in 90 games this season after slugging .423 in 143 games last season, but he’s been the Indians’ cleanup hitter since Nick Swisher was demoted from that role three weeks ago. Since moving into the cleanup spot Cabrera is 15-for-66 (.227) with…

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

  17. Position player Casper Wells outpitches White Sox pitching staff in blowout

    Jun 28, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    The Indians and White Sox are slated to play two games tonight, but they may have exhausted all their weapons in game one. The two clubs combined for 29 runs over a nine-inning affair, hanging up crooked numbers in seven different innings as the Indians won 19-10. All but two members of the Indians’ starting…

  20. Indians place Asdrubal Cabrera on the disabled list

    Jun 4, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    Asdrubal Cabrera aggravated his lingering quadriceps injury yesterday and the Indians have placed the shortstop on the disabled list. Mike Aviles will take over as Cleveland’s primary shortstop and 24-year-old Juan Diaz was called up from Triple-A to provide some infield depth, but he was hitting just .211 with a .591 OPS in 52 games…

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale was fantastic. And not just because of that suh-weet 1983 throwback jersey. A perfect game into the seventh and then the hit that inning to Mike Trout was all the Angels could muster. Indians 4, Tigers 3: Watched this one with the girlfriend’s parents. Tigers fans. Let’s just…
