    According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Indians have placed right-hander Zach McAllister on the disabled list with a right finger sprain. Carlos Carrasco has been called up from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding roster move and will make the start this afternoon against the Tigers. In turn, Justin Masterson has been pushed…

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

    Freddy Galvis

    Phillies 3, Reds 2: Aroldis Chapman is usually automatic. But he surrendered back-to-back bombs to the murderers row that is Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis as the Philly walked off Cincinnati. Heck, the inning started with Chapman walking Delmon Young on four straight pitches, so you know he wasn’t on it yesterday. And Cliff Lee…

    Braves Diamondbacks Baseball

    Braves 10, Diamondbacks 1: Justin Upton went 4 for 5 with a homer and 2 RBI. Chris Johnson went 3 for 4 with a homer and 3 RBI. Martin Prado had a couple of hits and I suppose he was gritty. Gonna say that the first visit to Arizona for the Braves post-trade falls to…

  5. Justin Masterson shuts out the Yankees in 1-0 Indians win

    May 13, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    Cleveland and New York are playing a doubleheader today and the Indians took Game 1 behind a complete-game shutout by Justin Masterson, who improves to 6-2 with a 3.14 ERA on the season. Jason Kipnis‘ solo homer in the first inning ended up being the only scoring in a 1-0 game. Masterson’s complete-game shutout is…

    Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 9, Athletics 6: Just yesterday Mike Napoli was named player of the week for last week. He’s making a bid for a repeat now, hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs here. Overall he has 25 RBI in 19 games. Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1: Chris Tillman had a one hitter…

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

  8. Some pitching feats in tonight’s action

    Apr 12, 2013, 10:40 PM EDT

    A.J. Burnett

    A.J. Burnett turned in his third consecutive solid effort, holding the Reds to three runs over six innings tonight, striking out eight. Since 2000, there are only ten occurrences of a pitcher tossing at least five innings and striking out eight or more in at least his first three starts of the season. Randy Johnson…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

  10. 2013 Preview: Cleveland Indians

    Chris Antonetti, Terry Francona

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Today: the Cleveland Indians. The Big Question: Can the Indians be a quick fix? After following up an 80-82 season in 2011…

  11. Oh look: the Indians are filming a Harlem Shake video

    Mar 11, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    WTF Face

    The Harlem Shake is played out. Was probably played out ten minutes after the first video was posted. But there’s a simplicity and an absurdity to it all that means it will probably last a long time because, really, anyone can do one. Including the Cleveland Indians, who are taking some time in Goodyear to…

  12. Zach McAllister wins rotation spot with Indians

    Mar 10, 2013, 10:36 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Cleveland Indians

    Indians hurler Zach McAllister has impressed manager Terry Francona enough to win one of the rotation spots in the back of the rotation. Via MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian: Francona informed McAllister that he will be a member of Cleveland’s Opening Day rotation, most likely sliding into the fourth slot behind Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez and Brett…

  13. Arbitration avoidance roundup: Loose ends

    By noon we’d already done a dozen posts about players and teams avoiding arbitration ahead of today’s deadline, so something had to give. We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

  14. Report: Asdrubal Cabrera’s no-trade includes Red Sox, Tigers

    Dec 3, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    Some players with partial no-trade clauses choose to put the teams they really don’t want to play for on their block list. Others simply pick the teams most likely to trade for them, figuring that gives them more control over their future. Asdrubal Cabrera appears to have gone the latter route. A source told WEEI.com’s…

    Curtis Granderson Reuters

    When I had a real job my boss used to call me the “shop steward.” But that was because (a) I was lazy; and (b) he hated unions and thought that laziness was the primary trait of unions. It was a great office. In reality, union representatives do things, all while still having to focus…

  16. The Red Sox have reached out to Hiroki Kuroda

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    For those of you keeping track, it’s the first full week of the offseason and already the Red Sox have been linked to approximately 79% of all known baseball players, living and dead. Indeed, in the last 24 hours we’ve heard about them and Anibal Sanchez, Mike Napoli, Adam LaRoche, Shin-Soo Choo, Justin Masterson, Justin…

  17. The Red Sox are interested in Shin-Soo Choo, Justin Masterson

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Shin-Soo Choo

    Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Red Sox have interest in Shin-Soo Choo and Justin Masterson. This is just another extension of those comments by Chris Antonetti the other day which some have taken as a hint that the Indians are going to have a fire sale this winter.  There’s no sense, however, that anything…

  18. The Indians will listen to offers for basically anybody

    Nov 7, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

    Sometimes general managers will declare certain players off-limits. Less than they used to, but they still sometimes do it. I think, in their heart of hearts, all general managers will listen to any offer for any player because, hey, you never know when someone may do something dumb and offer you too much.  That’s kind…

  19. 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…

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

    New York Yankees' Derek Lowe pitches to Texas Rangers during their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

  22. Indians fire first-year pitching coach Scott Radinsky

    Aug 9, 2012, 3:51 PM EDT

    Cleveland Indians  Photo Day

    Scott Radinsky has taken the fall for Cleveland’s collapse, as the Indians fired him as pitching coach less than a year after promoting him to the position. Triple-A pitching coach Ruben Niebla has been named the interim replacement. Cleveland has the second-worst team ERA in the league at 4.75, along with the second-fewest strikeouts and…

  23. Hey, the Indians finally won!

    Aug 8, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Nishioka

    The Indians moderately long regional nightmare is over:  they played the Twins today. They won 6-2. And they ended the 11 game losing streak. They can certainly thank their Opening Day starter and their biggest bat: Justin Masterson went seven innings allowing two runs on three hits and Shin-Soo Choo went 4 for 4 with…

    New York Yankees v Seattle Mariners

    Yankees 4, Mariners 1: Obviously Ichiro in Yankees clothing is the weirdest thing to hit baseball in some time. Must be how it felt to see Willie Mays wearing a Mets jersey or — and I really don’t think it’s hyperbole to say it — Babe Ruth in a Boston Braves uniform. OK, if that’s…

  25. Luke Scott snaps 0-for-41 hitless streak with home run

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Luke Scott Getty

    Luke Scott finally got a hit last night. After striking out in his first two at-bats against the Indians, Scott connected for a two-run home run off Justin Masterson in the top of the fifth inning. The homer broke an 0-for-41 hitless streak which dated back to June 2. Scott, who recently said that he…
