    This is of little interest to people not named Duncan and people who are not my daughter, but let the record reflect that the Arizona Diamondbacks have signed Shelley Duncan to a minor league deal. Duncan’s father, Dave Duncan, is an assistant to Dbacks GM Kevin Towers. Shelley is an Arizona native and played his…

    Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays have agreed to minor league contracts with outfielder Shelley Duncan and right-handed pitchers Jamey Wright and Juan Carlos Oviedo. Duncan batted just .203/.288/.388 in 264 plate appearances last season with the Indians. The 33-year-old does have some power but seems highly doubtful to crack…

  3. Don’t blame the layoff; blame Justin Verlander for Game 1 loss

    Justin Verlander

    Done in by poor fastball location, Justin Verlander got lit up by the Giants in Game 1 of the World Series, surrendering five runs and two Pablo Sandoval homers in four innings. Some facts from the outing: – It was just the third in three years in which he failed to go five innings. The…

    Calcaterra is traveling today, but once he sees this he’s going to have to break the news to his daughter that her favorite player, Shelley Duncan, has been designated for assignment by the Indians. Cleveland made the move to clear roster space for right-hander Jeanmar Gomez, who was recalled from Triple-A. Duncan’s power has remained…

    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…

  6. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and higlights

    It was a really rough weekend for people in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. Storms, trees down, power outages and intense heat made it for a really crappy weekend. We were fairly lucky here at Chez Craigy. The power was out for only about 24 hours before coming back Saturday evening.…

  7. Brian Matusz gets demoted after loss to Indians

    Jul 1, 2012, 4:57 PM EDT

    Brian Matusz

    The final week before the All-Star Game usually features a few demotions of starting pitchers with the idea that they can get a start in the minors during the break and then come back up afterwards. We’ll see if that’s the case with Brian Matusz here. The Orioles demoted their left-hander Sunday after he gave…

    For the second time this season an Indians starting pitcher has been suspended five games for plunking an opposing hitter. First it was Ubaldo Jimenez hitting former teammate Troy Tulowitzki late in spring training and now Jeanmar Gomez has gotten a five-game ban for hitting Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas on Saturday in what MLB…

  12. Grady Sizemore moved to 60-day disabled list, ineligible to return before June

    Apr 5, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Grady Sizemore

    In a move needed to create an opening on the 40-man roster the Indians transferred Grady Sizemore to the 60-day disabled list , meaning he’s not eligible to be activated until June 3. That likely won’t impact his return timetable any, as Sizemore is expected to miss 2-3 months following back surgery on March 1.…

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Indians and Angels are close to finalizing a trade involving veteran outfielder and DH Bobby Abreu. No word yet on what the Angels would receive in return, but it’s probably not going to be much. Abreu, 38, hit just .253/.353/.365 with eight home runs across 585 plate appearances…

    Sunrise Cactus

    I’m hopping on an airplane here shortly and heading for Arizona. That’s right, kids, a week in the Valley of the Sun, taking in Cactus League action.  I assure you, though, I won’t be enjoying myself at all. It’ll be all work. Really. Truly! OK, maybe I’ll enjoy it a little. But I will be…

  15. 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…

    Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported yesterday that the Indians’ front office had approached ownership about expanding the payroll to sign Carlos Pena, but he might not be the only free agent first baseman on the team’s radar.
