Injuries
Forearm - Out for the season (Updated - 9/12/16)
News
Salazar threw a 30-plus pitches off a mound Wednesday, and appears on track to be available out of the bullpen in the ALDS, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

He only threw fastballs and changeups, as those would be the two pitches Salazar would use as a reliever. Apparently it hurts his arm too much to throw curveballs. Depending on how deep the Indians go in the postseason, there's a chance Salazar could make a start at some point, but it would likely be a shortened start, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Paul Hoynes reports.

News
Crisp went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in the Indians' 7-4 win over the Tigers.

Crisp's home run came in the second inning to lead off the scoring for the Indians, who clinched the AL Central with the win. It was Crisp's 13th home run of the year, and it gave him his 54th and 55th RBI. Although his batting average is just .235, he's hitting .400 in his last seven games.

News
Bauer's next start has been pushed to Saturday against the Royals, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

The Indians have shaken up their rotation over the final six days of the season after clinching the division Monday. This move means Bauer could start Game 1 of the ALDS on normal rest if Corey Kluber (groin) can't make that start.

Mike Clevinger, #52
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
2352.15.332949
 
News
Clevinger is moving to the bullpen after giving up five runs in two innings in his start Tuesday against the Tigers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Zack Meisel reports.

This move may have been in the works regardless of how Clevinger pitched Tuesday, but he sealed the deal with his poor start. The Indians are going with bullpen games Wednesday and Thursday, likely followed by Josh Tomlin, Trevor Bauer and Adam Plutko this weekend. It's probably too soon to write off Clevinger as a starter long term, but he didn't do much to help his case, posting a 5.08 ERA in 39 innings as a starter coming into Tuesday's game.

Position Breakdown

News
Santana is out of Thursday's lineup against the Tigers, the Akron Beacon Journal's Ryan Lewis reports.

There is a solid chance that Thursday's game will be rained out, but Santana will get the day off either way. If the game does get played, Jesus Aguilar will start at first base and hit seventh while Mike Napoli gets the nod at DH in the cleanup spot.

Injuries
Shoulder - Out for the season (Updated - 9/29/16)
News
Brantley, who had shoulder surgery a month ago, could miss significant time next season, Fanrag Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

Per Heyman's report, Brantley's shoulder muscle was re-anchored to the bone -- a serious procedure that could cost him more time than initially believed. In response to Heyman's report, Brantley said, "maybe (Heyman) knows something I don't," according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. The Indians maintain that the expected recovery time is four months, which would mean Brantley would be ready for spring training. This is a murky situation that should continue to develop during the offseason, but those who own Brantley in keeper leagues should be aware that he may not be ready for Opening Day next year.

News
Kipnis is out of Thursday's lineup against the Tigers, the Akron Beacon Journal's Ryan Lewis reports.

There is a solid chance that Thursday's game will get rained out, in which case the two teams may need to make the game up Monday. If they are somehow able to squeeze the game in, Michael Martinez will start at second base for the Indians and hit ninth Thursday.

Cody Allen, #37

News
Allen struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning against the Tigers on Monday, earning his 30th save of the year as the Indians clinched the division.

Allen is now 6-for-6 in save opportunities in September, allowing just one run in 10 innings while striking out 11 and walking one. Allen has seen every save chance the Indians have had in September, despite the fact that Andrew Miller, who the Indians traded for, has been lights out as well and converted all three save chances he got in August.

News
Davis is not in the lineup Monday against Detroit.

Davis will sit for the second time in four games, as the Indians go with an outfield of Lonnie Chisenhall in right, Tyler Naquin in center and Coco Crisp in left. Davis is hitting just .184 with two RBI in the month of September.

Quadriceps - Out for the season (Updated - 9/28/16)
News
Kluber's MRI Tuesday revealed a mild quad strain and he will return to game action in 7-to-10 days, ruling him out for the rest of the regular season.

This means Kluber won't return until Game 1 or Game 2 of the ALDS, meaning owners in single-season leagues can cut bait. The Indians are going with bullpen games in their next two, with Trevor Bauer starting Saturday and Josh Tomlin starting either Friday or Sunday, so there's very little fantasy value left to extract from the Indians rotation in 2016.

Napoli is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

The rest of the Indians' regulars will return to action Wednesday after much of the team was held out Tuesday following a division-clinching win the night before, but Napoli will get a second straight day off after going hitless in eight of his last nine games. Carlos Santana will man first base for the Indians on Wednesday night.

Miller threw 1.2 innings of relief against the Tigers on Monday, earning his 10th win of the season as the Indians clinched the division with a 7-4 win.

Miller is now an astonishing 10-1 on the season despite making no starts for the Yankees or Indians. He is 3-for-3 in saves since joining the Indians in August, but teammate Cody Allen has seen all the save opportunities in September. Miller holds a 0.56 WHIP since joining the club, and has struck out batters at a 14.2 K/9.

News
Plutko is no longer scheduled to start Friday against the Royals, Zack Meisel of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Ryan Merritt will move back to Friday after Thursday's game was postponed due to poor field conditions, and Merritt will be followed by Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin in the final two games of the regular season. That leaves Plutko to presumably work out of the bullpen, although he could get the nod Monday if a make-up game is necessary.

Zach McAllister, #34

News
McAllister pitched two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out one Tiger in his rain-shortened no-decision on Wednesday.

Making just his second start of the season (his other was on July 6 and lasted just one inning), the 28-year-old suffered some unfortunate luck when a 45-minute delay ended his night. McAllister has appeared in 53 games for the Indians this season, managing a respectable 3.44 ERA with 54 strikeouts over 52.1 innings. Although unlikely, McAllister's short-lived night might afford him an opportunity to be used out of the bullpen over the weekend.

News
Tomlin's next start will either come Friday or Sunday, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

The Indians have shaken up their rotation over the final week after clinching the division Monday. Tomlin's next start could hinge on whether Corey Kluber (groin) will be able to start Game 1 of the ALDS. If Kluber can't go, Trevor Bauer would start Game 1 and Tomlin would start Game 2, meaning he would start Sunday's season finale to line up for that postseason start on normal rest.

News
Merritt is now slated to start Friday after Thursday's game was postponed due to poor field conditions, Zack Meisel of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

After a four-plus hour delay, the decision was made to postpone Thursday's game and make it up Monday, if necessary. The Indians will simply slide Merritt back to Friday rather than start Adam Plutko in the series opener against Kansas City.
