Francisco Lindor struggling in Akron
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Indians top prospect Francisco Lindor is off to a slow start at Double-A Akron. The shortstop is slated to take over that position with Cleveland when Asdrubal Cabrera is either traded this year or leaves in free agency after this season.

Lindor has just one hit in his last 10 at-bats. His stat line of .239/.320/.373 must improve for the Indians to promote him. He is still just 20 years old, however.

Trevor Bauer could soon pitch his way back to Indians
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The struggles of Indians starters Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar could soon be the ticket for the promotion of Trevor Bauer from Triple-A Columbus.

Bauer is certainly doing his part with a tremendous start to the season. He managed his third straight start in which he yielded one earned run or less on Tuesday. He gave up one run in 6 2/3 innings with three walks and three strikeouts to actually raise his earned run average to 0.96.

Most encouraging it that he has just six walks in 18 2/3 innings. The 23 year old has surrendered just 13 hits and has fanned 21.

Terry Francona would like to keep Bauer in the majors once the Indians bring him back. "He's really starting to figure it out," Francona told MLB Radio. "When he gets here, we'd like to keep him here."

David Murphy rebounding in style from awful 2013
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The hope of the Indians that right fielder David Murphy would rebound from an uncharacteristically terrible season in 2013 with Texas is turning into reality. The usually consistent Murphy has been the second-best hitter behind Michael Brantley in a struggling lineup.

Murphy owns a six-game hitting streak and a stat line of .288/.348/.492. He is batting .333 in his last 45 at-bats and is already one-third of the way to his 45 RBI of a year ago.

Danny Salazar struggles in another short outing Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians pitcher Danny Salazar failed to complete five innings for the third straight start Tuesday, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 8-2 loss to the Royals.

Salazar (0-3) continues to flash elite strikeout potential, but he also continues to serve up critical home runs that cause for shortented outings. He has given up five runs in three straight starts, now giving him a 7.85 ERA and 23:10 K:BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Giants in San Francisco Sunday.

John Axford slams door shut on Royals
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Indians reliever John Axford slammed the door shut on the Royals Monday night for his seventh save of the season.

Axford needed just seven pitches as he retired the side in order to secure a 4-3 victory. He owns a 3.12 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP along with a 9:7 K:BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings pitched.
