Indians' Aaron Civale: Another tough-luck loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale (1-3) allowed two earned runs, four hits and no walks while striking out three across 5.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Mets.

Civale had his start cut short by a lengthy rain delay, denying him the chance for a quality start. His only real trouble came in the fourth frame, when he allowed back-to-back doubles that resulted in both of his earned runs crossing the plate. He's made a strong impression in his first five career starts, working 29.2 innings and allowing just six earned runs while racking up 25 strikeouts. He'll look to keep things going in his next outing, currently scheduled for Wednesday at Detroit.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Takes tough loss versus Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale (1-2) allowed three runs (two earned) on eight hits with two walks and four strikeouts across six innings while taking a loss against the Yankees on Friday.

The right-hander gave up two runs in the first and then an unearned run, which proved to be the difference, during the fifth. This was the first time Civale allowed more than a run in any of his four starts, and yet he has a losing record. He also owns a 1.50 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 22 strikeouts in 24 MLB innings. Civale will make his next start at the Mets on Wednesday.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Tosses six strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale allowed one run on four hits in six innings Sunday, striking out five while not factoring in the decision during the win over the Twins.

In three starts to begin his MLB career, Civale owns an 18:4 K:BB with a minuscule 1.00 ERA over 18 frames. The 24-year-old allowed an RBI sacrifice fly in the second inning but kept Minnesota's bats fairly quiet the rest of the day. With the way he's pitched so far, Civale should stick around in the rotation at least until Corey Kluber (forearm) returns from the injured list. Assuming that's the case, the right-handed rookie will get a tough road test against the Yankees on Friday.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Draws another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale is listed as the Indians' probable starter for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Civale was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Monday to replace Danny Salazar (groin) in the rotation and spun a gem, permitting only one run over six innings while striking out seven in a 1-0 loss to the Rangers. The rookie right-hander will be rewarded with another start for his efforts but won't make for the most comfortable option in fantasy lineups as he heads to Minnesota to face a Twins offense that ranks third in the majors this season in team wRC+ (116). Civale may not have much longevity in the rotation beyond Sunday, as Corey Kluber (forearm) is set to make his second minor-league rehab start next week and could be ready to return from the 60-day injured list following that outing.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Outdueled on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale (1-1) took the loss Monday as Cleveland fell 1-0 to the Rangers, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over six innings while striking out seven.

The right-hander was outstanding in his return to the majors, but Mike Minor was just a little bit stingier for Texas. Civale now has quality starts in both of his outings this season for Cleveland, and his stay in the majors figures to be a lengthier one this time around. He'll next take the mound Saturday in Minnesota.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Promoted ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale was recalled from Triple-A Columbus ahead of his scheduled start against the Rangers on Monday, Nick Camino of WKYC Channel 3 Cleveland reports.

As expected, Civale will enter the rotation Monday in place of the injured Danny Salazar (groin). The 24-year-old Civale allowed just two hits while striking out six batters across six shutout innings in his big-league debut earlier in the season. Phil Maton was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Set to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale will be called up from Triple-A Columbus to start Monday against the Rangers, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old will enter the starting rotation in place of Danny Salazar, who landed on the injured list with a groin issue. Civale made his major-league debut in June and allowed two hits over six shutout innings.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Back from 7-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale (shoulder) was activated from Triple-A Columbus' 7-day injured list Saturday.

Civale should slot back into the Columbus rotation after missing just under two weeks with the shoulder issue. The young right-hander shined in a spot start with Cleveland back on June 22 but may not be on track to rejoin the big-league rotation anytime soon with manager Terry Francona seemingly content with Zach Plesac and Adam Plutko as the team's back-end starters.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Out with shoulder tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale landed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Columbus with right shoulder tightness Wednesday.

It's not yet clear how much time Civale is expected to miss. The 24-year-old threw six scoreless innings in his big-league debut back in late June and has a 1.63 ERA in five starts for Columbus.

June 24, 2019 05:36 PM
Indians' Aaron Civale: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

Civale threw six shutout innings in his big-league debut Saturday against the Tigers, but there's no room for him to stick in the rotation for now with Mike Clevinger returning from an ankle injury on Friday. His strong showing should put him first in line the next time Cleveland needs a spot starter, however. Jon Edwards was recalled in a corresponding move.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Throws six shutout frames in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale pitched six scoreless innings, allowing two hits with three walks and six strikeouts to earn a victory in his major-league debut against the Tigers on Saturday.

It's hard to imagine a better debut for the 24-year-old, who gave up just two infield singles and didn't allow a baserunner to reach third base. Civale actually only threw 46 of 87 pitches for strikes, including just four swinging strikes, but making it though six frames needing just 87 pitches in a major-league debut is quite impressive. This will likely prove to be a spot start for Civale, but if he receives another opportunity, owners should jump at the chance to plug him in the lineup, assuming he isn't in a terrible matchup.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Called up for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians officially called up Civale from Triple-A Columbus ahead of his scheduled start Saturday against the Tigers.

Cleveland has yet to announce corresponding moves to open up spots on the 40-man and active rosters for Civale, who will be making his MLB debut in the penultimate game of the series. The 24-year-old has made six starts between Triple-A and Double-A Akron this season, compiling a 2.85 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 40:10 K:BB across 41 innings. Due to multiple off days in the schedule over the next two weeks, Cleveland can get by with a four-man rotation after Saturday's contest, so Civale will likely just be making a spot start before heading back to the minors.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Slated to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale is expected to be called up from Triple-A Columbus to start Saturday against the Tigers, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Civale will step into the starting rotation for Mike Clevinger, who landed on the 10-day injured list Friday with an ankle sprain. It's likely to be a spot start for the 24-year-old since the Indians won't require a fifth starter again until after the All-Star break. Civale has a 2.85 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 40:10 K:BB over seven starts between Columbus and Double-A Akron this season.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Returns to Akron
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale (lat) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings to earn the win in Double-A Akron's 15-2 victory over Reading on Saturday.

The right-hander was held back at extended spring training to begin the year due to a lat injury originally suffered in August of 2018. Civale allowed a home run and did not record a strikeout in his 2019 debut, but just getting back into a competitive setting is a big step forward. He threw 74 pitches and it would not be a surprise if his pitch counts remain limited for the foreseeable future.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Sidelined with lat injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale is in extended spring training rehabbing a lat injury, reports.

He originally suffered the injury in late August of last year and is still dealing with the issue. Once healthy, he could return to Double-A or get his first taste of Triple-A

Indians' Aaron Civale: Placed on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale was put on the 7-day disabled list Wednesday with a right lat strain.

Civale suffered the injury during Monday's start at High-A Akron, as he was able to record just one out before exiting the contest. With the end of the minor-league season quickly approaching, this may close the book on Civale's 2018 season.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Exits with lat injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale (lat) exited his start with Double-A Akron on Monday after recording just one out.

Civale was diagnosed with a lat injury, though the severity of the issue remains unclear at this point. That said, given how difficult lat injuries can be and how close it is to the end of the season, it wouldn't be surprising if he didn't pitch again for the RubberDucks this year. Prior to suffering the injury, Civale compiled a 3.89 ERA across 21 starts with Akron.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Will be activated Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale (shoulder) is scheduled to be activated from the 7-day disabled list and start Wednesday for Double-A Akron.

The 22-year-old has been sidelined for a little over a month due to a sore right shoulder. Civale could face a more limited pitch count than usual in his return to action, but the absence shouldn't affect his status as one of the better pitching prospects in the Cleveland organization. The right-hander maintained a 2.51 ERA and 32:4 K:BB across 32.1 innings prior to landing on the DL.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Lands on MiLB DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale was placed on the disabled list with Double-A Akron due to right shoulder soreness.

Few details are known about the severity of the injury, so it's unclear how long he'll be out. Prior to hurting his shoulder, Civale produced a 2.51 ERA and 32:4 K:BB in 32.1 innings pitched for the RubberDucks.

Indians' Aaron Civale: Looks ready for Double-A after strong 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Civale wrapped up a successful 2017 campaign with a 13-6 record, 3.28 ERA and 1.06 WHIP over 27 combined starts for Low-A Lake County and High-A Lynchburgh.

Cleveland's third-round pick in 2016 didn't look great through 10 starts at Lake County (4.58 ERA), but his 53:5 K:BB over 57 innings was enough to earn a promotion. Upon joining Lynchburgh, Civale took his game to the next level. In 17 starts for the Hillcats, the right-hander went 11-2 while logging a 2.59 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 88:9 K:BB over 107.2 innings. Civale likely earned a place in the minors' upper levels next season after his 2017 breakout campaign.
