    Oakland Athletics v Cleveland Indians

    Nick Swisher is back from the disabled list and in the Indians’ lineup for tonight’s game after missing the past two weeks with a hyperextended left knee. To make room on the roster for his return Jason Giambi is headed to the disabled list with left knee inflammation.

  6. Lonnie Chisenhall’s brilliance could spell the end of Jason Giambi’s career

    Jason Giambi

    Lonnie Chisenhall has earned the right to be the Indians’ everyday third baseman. Which will have some ripple effects once Nick Swisher returns.

    Jun 8, 2014, 5:15 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Cleveland Indians

    If everything goes swimmingly in two rehab games with Double-A Akron, Nick Swisher could rejoin the Indians on Thursday in time for a four-game set with the Red Sox.

    Carlos Santana was scratched from the Indians’ lineup yesterday amid concerns that he might be dealing with post-concussion symptoms and sure enough he’s been placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

    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 2014 season.

  13. Nick Swisher got in Kenny Lofton’s face at the Indians’ Fan Fest

    Lofton_Kenny_Indians.standard[1]-thumb-250x195-5279

    If this was reported at the time I missed it, but Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com has an interesting story about a dustup between former Indians great Kenny Lofton and current Indians leader Nick Swisher back in January. The upshot: following Lofton’s comments that the 2013 Indians weren’t truly a playoff team because the Wild Card…

  14. Michael Bourn is questionable for Opening Day

    Michael Bourn strained his surgically-repaired left hamstring yesterday and now his Opening Day is in doubt: Michael Bourn is going to miss at least a week. Has mild left hamstring strain. Unknown if he’ll be ready for March 31 opener. #Indians. — paul hoynes (@hoynsie) March 17, 2014   It would appear that Michael Brantley…

    Bovada released its player prop bets for the 2014 season on Wednesday, providing odds on the AL and NL MVP and Cy Young races, as well as MLB’s home run leader. Here’s a look at what I consider to be the best bets in each category. Please do note, though, all information here is for…

  16. Inside Masahiro Tanaka’s debut

    Masahiro Tanaka

    TAMPA — The original plan was to go sit in the crowd and drink beer at the Astros-Tigers game, but when it was announced that Masahiro Tanaka was making his spring training debut in Tampa today, plans changed. I got in the car at 6:30 this morning and headed to Steinbrenner Field early to take…

    When the Cylons come and wipe out our civilization whatever survivors are left will weep for lost humanity and try hard to carry on. But they’ll also know that we had it coming. Oh boy, did we have it coming. I mean, what sort of claim to a right of existence do we have as…

  18. Indians giving Carlos Santana additional resources as he works out at third base

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Carlos Santana Getty

    If their latest action is any indication, the Indians’ decision to have catcher Carlos Santana work out at third base wasn’t just made on a whim. As Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reports, the Indians have sent infield coach Mike Sarbaugh down to the Dominican Republic to help Santana as he plays in winter…

  19. Carlos Santana is working out at third base

    Nov 25, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Normally when you have a good-hitting catcher who doesn’t profile as a Gold Glover, you think about making him a DH or a first baseman. The Indians aren’t doing that with Carlos Santana, however. Paul Hoynes reports that they’ve talked to him about playing third base down in the Dominican Republic this year and have…

  20. Let’s not overstate the impact Yankee Stadium will have on Brian McCann

    Nov 24, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Brian McCann AP

    As soon as the Yankees’ signing of free agent catcher Brian McCann to a five-year, $85 million contract was announced, the projections started rolling in. “McCann will hit 35-40 HRs with Yankee Stadium as home ballpark,” tweeted David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Others were less bold, suggesting 35 as a ceiling for the former…

  21. Jose Abreu skepticism sounds like Yasiel Puig skepticism

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    jose dariel abreu getty

    Jose Abreu‘s reported $68 million deal with the White Sox isn’t even official yet and there are already lots of prominent media members questioning whether Chicago over-committed to an “untested” player with some question marks attached. I have no idea. I’ve seen Abreu play a couple times on television, I’ve read the same write-ups everyone…

  22. The Indians want Jason Giambi back next year, no matter what

    Oct 9, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Jason Giambi will be 43 years-old next season and he has not been a full-time player since he left the Yankees following the 2008 campaign. But, unlike so many younger guys (and unlike a lot of better hitters) Giambi will not have to search around for a roster spot next spring. Indeed, on Monday both…

  23. Yoenis Cespedes gets no help in Oakland’s Game 1 loss

    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…

  24. 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…
