Cody Allen hit with a loss Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians closer Cody Allen picked up a loss Friday against the Astros.

Allen entered with the game tied in the ninth inning. After giving up a walk with one out, Allen's defense started to let him down. The next batter reached on a throwing error, putting two men on base. Another throwing error was made against the next batter, allowing a run to score. Allen then issued another walk, and gave up a three-run blast to Jon Singleton. He managed to get out of the inning, but the damage was done.

Allen allowed four runs, though none were earned, on one hit and two walks in his only inning. He dropped to 4-3 with the loss.

Carlos Carrasco turns in a strong start Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco turned in a fine start Friday against the Astros.

Carrasco gave up one run on two hits over six innings. He struck out eight and walked two during the outing. The only blemish against Carrasco during the start was a solo home run. In the top of the fifth, Marwin Gonzalez managed to take Carrasco out to right to start the scoring. Other than that, Carrasco was excellent against Houston. He was pulled after throwing 90 pitches. He left with the game tied, earning the no-decision.

Carrasco will take on the White Sox in his next start.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Indians team doctors think catcher Yan Gomes might have a minor concussion, manager Terry Francona told The Chronicle-Telegram Friday. The team has yet to make a decision on whether Gomes will go on the 7-day concussion disabled list yet, however, though he is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Astros.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Zach Walters on the verge of mattering
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For the fourth time with the Indians and the seventh time in 72 big-league at-bats this year, Zach Walters homered Thursday. And judging by his 29 homers in 487 at-bats at Triple-A last year and his 17 homers in 268 at-bats at Triple-A this year, it's something he'll continue to do.

Though he's been playing DH for the Indians, Walters' most important attribute is that he's eligible at shortstop. Offensive production as a whole is scarce at the position, and power hitting especially.

So it's a match made in Fantasy heaven, at least in theory -- the same one that had Fantasy owners flocking to Javier Baez upon his arrival.

But while Baez has long been touted as a face-of-the-franchise type, Walters was just a spare part for the Nationals -- one easily expended at the trade deadline. While the disparity no doubt says something about Walters' upside, it may say even more about his downside. Quite simply, his shortcomings may prove to be more than he can overcome.

He's a swing-at-anything type, striking out more than 100 times more than he walked at Triple-A last year. He hit only .253 as a result, which doesn't bode well for his chances in the majors. If you need cheap homers, he's a sneaky way to get them out of a middle infield spot. Just don't expect much more than a .200 batting average from him.
