The Fenway faithful are not known for offering standing ovations for opposing players. Indians center fielder Austin Jackson proved to be a rare exception after an incredible catch to rob Red Sox designated hitter Hanley Ramirez of a homer in the fifth inning on Tuesday night.
The Indians’ decision to go with a six-man rotation recently made Monday’s news about Josh Tomlin a little easier to swallow. Before Monday’s game against the Red Sox, the Indians placed Tomlin on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain and made plans for him to travel to Cleveland to undergo an MRI […]
Carlos Carrasco and the Indians will be reunited with an old foe Tuesday night when former American League Central rival Chris Sale takes the mound for the Red Sox at Fenway Park.
Mike Clevinger did not have much to say after his outing against the Red Sox on Monday night. Really, there was not much to analyze. The Indians’ starter could not find the strike zone and endured a rough day at the office, exiting his first Fenway Park experience after only three-plus innings.
The hugs that typically accompany the Trade Deadline each summer are due to farewells. When sidearmer Joe Smith joins the Indians’ bullpen, the embraces he will receive will be from friends thrilled to welcome him back into the fold.

The White Sox managed only four hits Sunday afternoon, but they made them count, and the final one set off an on-field celebration. Matt Davidson belted a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to send Chicago to a 3-1 walk-off win over the Indians at Guaranteed Rate Field.
There might not be a hotter team in the American League than the Indians. The defending AL champs will look to maintain their hot play, while continuing their road trip in Boston against Doug Fister (0-5, 7.46 ERA) at Fenway Park.
Given the time lost due to injury last season for Michael Brantley, days off were expected to be part of the Indians outfielder’s comeback this year. Instead, Brantley’s strong return has made rest days like the one he received Sunday against the White Sox rare.
For four innings Sunday afternoon, Josh Tomlin was as sharp as he has been all season. That changed for the Indians starter before the fifth, when he walked off the field with head athletic trainer James Quinlan at his side.
With Boone Logan out of the Indians’ bullpen picture for the foreseeable future, Cleveland used his roster spot to its advantage Saturday.
Shao-Ching Chiang, an Indians farmhand, fired Class A Advanced Lynchburg’s first nine-inning no-hitter since 1992 in a 3-0 victory over Winston-Salem on Saturday. Throwing a season-high 106 pitches (76 strikes) in the performance, he allowed one walk and hit one batter while striking out seven en route to facing two over the minimum.
