    Nelson Cruz, Salomon Manriquez

    Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 and Carlos Santana homered as the Dominican Republic took another step towards advancing in the WBC on Saturday, beating Spain 6-3. The Dominican team scored five times in the second and third innings off Yoanner Negrin, with Nelson Cruz driving in two of the runs. The Spanish bullpen did solid work…

    Robinson Cano

    Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI and Hanley Ramirez added a long homer as the Dominican Republic torched Venezuela 9-3 in the start of Pool C play. The Dominican team jumped out to a 3-0 lead off Anibal Sanchez in the bottom of the first, only to see the game halted…

  3. Dominican Republic downs Yankees 8-2 in exhibition

    Mar 6, 2013, 6:03 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    The Dominican Republic is glad Hiroki Kuroda decided to sit out the World Baseball Classic. He’s the only pitcher with any luck slowing their offense the last two days. Kuroda, a native of Japan, struck out four in three scoreless innings Wednesday, but the Dominican Republic scored in every frame afterwards on its way to…

  5. Miguel Montero on Trevor Bauer: “He never wanted to listen”

    Feb 12, 2013, 6:48 AM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    It was understood that the Diamondbacks trade of pitching prospect Trevor Bauer had more to do with the team’s opinion of his attitude than its opinion of his talent. Yes, he struggled during his callup last year, but he just turned 22 and struck out 11.5 batters per nine innings in two minor league seasons.…

  6. Jason Giambi set to sign with Indians

    Feb 9, 2013, 10:17 PM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    The Denver Post’s Troy Renck reports that the Indians and first baseman Jason Giambi are closing in on a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. The 42-year-old Giambi was considered for the Rockies’ managerial vacancy earlier this winter, but after failing to get that, he said he wanted to keep playing. The…

    Veteran catcher Omir Santos has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Indians that includes an invitation to spring training. Santos got a bunch of playing time for the Mets as a 28-year-old rookie in 2009, but has spent most of the past three seasons in the minors while seeing a little action for the…

  8. Lou Marson and Indians avoid arbitration for $1 million

    Jan 18, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Marson_Lou

    Cleveland has avoided arbitration with Lou Marson, signing the backup catcher to a one-year, $1 million deal. Marson was arbitration eligible for the first time at age 27 after logging between 235 and 295 plate appearances in each of the past three seasons. He hasn’t developed as much as hoped offensively, hitting just .220 with…

  9. Carlos Santana leaves game in DWL with bruised leg

    Dec 1, 2012, 10:02 PM EDT

    carlos santana getty

    Minor scare down in the Dominican Winter League. From ESPN’s Buster Olney comes word that Indians catcher Carlos Santana fouled a ball off his right leg — near the knee — during a game Saturday while playing for Leones del Escogido. He left with a limp, but Olney says trainers are “not concerned” at this…

  10. 2012 projections review: catcher

    Oct 24, 2012, 12:00 AM EDT

    Joe Mauer

    I’ll be doing some projection reviews over the next couple of weeks, starting with catcher here. Along with running down my preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each position, I’ll also present a few more that are of interest. Requests of players not listed can be made in the comments. 1. Carlos Santana –…

  11. Could Francona get the band back together in Cleveland?

    Oct 18, 2012, 9:17 AM EDT

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    At least part of it?  Here’s some speculation from Heyman that actually makes sense: The White Sox would like to re-sign third baseman Kevin Youkilis. But some see the rival Indians, who’ve hired his friend Terry Francona to manage, as a potential threat to try to sign Youkilis now. The Indians’ interest is mostly in the speculative…

  12. With Terry Francona in fold, Indians can’t be so cheap

    Oct 6, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Terry Francona

    The Indians’ move to hire Terry Francona looks like a coup. Getting a two-time World Series-winning manager to come to Cleveland and take over a team that hasn’t finished over .500 in five years makes for quite the turn of events. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if it does any good. Francona…

  13. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, White Sox 1: Did you know that if you win the AL Central that you contract a horrible disease? If you answered yes, you must be either the Tigers or the White Sox. That’s five straight losses for Chicago. Jered Weaver wins his 19th, allowing one run over six and a third. Kendrys…

  14. Tigers suffer setback, blow ninth-inning lead versus Indians

    Sep 16, 2012, 6:51 PM EDT

    Lonnie Chisenhall

    The White Sox completed their sweep in Minnesota earlier today, but the Tigers couldn’t match the feat in Cleveland. They gave up a 6-5 lead in the ninth to lose to the Indians 7-6. Carlos Santana tripled in Jason Kipnis to tie the game off Jose Valverde, and Lonnie Chisenhall singled to win it afterwards.…

  15. Anibal Sanchez takes no-hitter into seventh in victory

    Sep 15, 2012, 7:53 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    Anibal Sanchez has had a pretty difficult time since joining the Tigers in a July deal with the Marlins, but that hasn’t extended to his starts versus Cleveland. He took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Saturday in the Tigers’ 5-3 victory. Sanchez faced the minimum through 6 2/3 innings, with the only batter to…

  16. Great news for the rest of the NL: Dodgers keep Ned Colletti around

    Sep 15, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Ned Colletti

    Sure, these new Dodgers may have as much buying power as any three other National League teams combined, but at least fans of other clubs can take heart that Ned Colletti will remain the one doing the spending after inking a mulityear contract extension on Saturday. Colletti’s Dodgers have the NL’s third-best record since he…

  17. Indians manager already thinking ahead to 2013

    Aug 16, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    Manny Acta

    After an 11-game losing streak knocked his team out of contention for 2012, Indians manager Manny Acta is looking ahead towards next year. “It’s no secret, we’re going to need to improve our offense,” Acta told Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “We’re going to have to find a solution in left field, we’re…

    Oakland Athletics v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 10, Athletics 4: Backatcha, Athletics. A night after the A’s slammed the Jays, Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer to lead the charge for Toronto, ending the A’s seven game winning streak. This came after the A’s took a 3-0 lead, so nice moxie by the Blue Jays there. Mets 3, Diamondbacks 1:…

    Indians catcher Carlos Santana hasn’t played in a game since Wednesday due to soreness in his back and side. He was expected to serve as the Tribe’s designated hitter Sunday, but it won’t be happening. Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports that Santana is out of the starting lineup for a fourth straight game this afternoon…

  20. Carlos Santana returns from concussion at designated hitter

    Jun 5, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Carlos Santana Getty

    Carlos Santana is back in the Indians’ lineup tonight after missing the past 10 days with a concussion and he’s batting cleanup, but manager Manny Acta has him in the designated hitter spot instead of catching. Santana started at DH and homered yesterday in a minor-league rehab game to convince the Indians that he’s ready…

  21. A.J. Ellis: All-Star?

    May 27, 2012, 10:48 AM EDT

    aj ellis ap

    The Dodgers picked up their MLB-best 31st victory on Saturday when catcher A.J. Ellis hit a walkoff three-run shot against the Astros’ Wesley Wright. The heroics are nothing new this year for Ellis. A 31-year-old former 18th-round pick, he’s batting .317/.442/.517 with five home runs, seven doubles and 23 RBI through 149 plate appearances. And…

  22. Indians to place Carlos Santana on 7-day concussion disabled list

    May 26, 2012, 2:34 PM EDT

    Carlos Santana Getty

    The first-place Indians will have to get by without another important piece of their lineup. Nick Camino of WTAM in Cleveland reports that the Indians will place Carlos Santana on MLB’s seven-day disabled list for concussions. The 26-year-old backstop left last night’s game in the eighth inning after a foul ball off Alex Rios‘ bat…

    May 18, 2012, 5:58 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 7, Marlins 0: Brandon Beachy: the best pitcher you haven’t heard of. He shuts out the Marlins on five hits and ups his record to 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA. Giants 7, Cardinals 5: Bad Cardinal defense and a little more offense than usual gave the Giants some runs on a day when Matt…

  24. Great Moments in Bad Defense: the Seattle Mariners

    May 17, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Cleveland Indians

    It’s hard to find an uglier all-around play than this one in last night’s Indians-Mariners game.  It started with a double steal that seemed to confuse Jesus Montero. And then the confusion was compounded when he and his teammates decided to throw the baseball all over the place. But check out the hustle on Carlos…
