    Making official what was reported last week, Jose Lopez has signed a one-year deal with the Yomiuri Giants in Japan. According to the Associated Press he’ll get $911,000, which is less than most former major leaguers heading to Japan typically receive and suggests Lopez couldn’t find anything more than a minor-league deal in America.

  6. Indians designate Jose Lopez for assignment

    Aug 7, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Jose Lopez

    It’s not clear why Cleveland gave Jose Lopez this long of a leash considering this is the third straight season in which he’s failed to crack a .700 OPS, but the Indians finally saw enough and designated the former All-Star for assignment. Lopez hit just .249 with four homers and a .639 OPS in 66…

    Cincinnati Reds v Cleveland Indians

    Veteran journeyman Jack Hannahan beat out 23-year-old Lonnie Chisenhall for Cleveland’s starting third base job this spring and played well in the early going, but today the Indians placed him on the disabled list and recalled Chisenhall from Triple-A. Hannahan missed 11 games with a back injury, returned to the lineup Saturday, and is now…

  9. Evan Longoria’s injury a crushing blow to Rays

    May 1, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    Rays' Longoria holds his left knee and grimaces after he was tagged out byMariners shortstop Ryan trying to steal second base, during the third inning of their MLB American League baseball game in St. Petersburg

    Evan Longoria might be the American League’s most indispensable player. We’re certainly about to find out now that he’s due to miss 6-8 weeks with a hamstring tear. Longoria, the owner of a .329/.433/.561 line and 19 RBI in 23 games to start the season, was injured on a steal attempt during Monday’s game against the…

    Apr 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Jose Altuve

    Houston’s offense is one of the most improved in baseball and sophomore second baseman Jose Altuve is a big reason why. He came into today hitting .344 with a .918 OPS and notched four more hits in a 7-5 victory over the Brewers. Altuve is a really fun player to watch because he’s 5-foot-5 (on…

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    The Indians placed shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera on the bereavement list prior to Tuesday’s game and recalled left-hander Nick Hagadone from Triple-A Columbus.

  13. Running down the rosters: Cleveland Indians

    Feb 18, 2012, 5:04 PM EDT

    Carlos Santana, Chris Perez

    Even after giving up their top two pitching prospects for Ubaldo Jimenez, the Indians couldn’t maintain their hot start last year and lost their last four games to finish under .500 at 80-82. The offseason saw them shopping from the scrap heap, which isn’t unusual, but even as they were forced to pick from largely…

    Dec 1, 2010, 1:17 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Seattle Mariners

    A month ago the Mariners declined their $4.5 million option on Jose Lopez for 2011 and since then they’ve no doubt been trying to find another team interesting in trading for him with an eye toward taking Lopez to arbitration at a lower salary. Not surprisingly there were apparently no takers for the disappointing infielder…
