Top Indians News

  • Indians' Carlos Carrasco: Still tossing bullpen sessions

    Carrasco (elbow) has been regularly throwing bullpen sessions and sending videos of his workouts to Indians manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Carl Willis since MLB suspended its season in March, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Carrasco's availability for Opening Day looked to be in peril after he was shut down with elbow inflammation in early March, but baseball's ongoing hiatus has given him nearly three months to heal up from the injury. While Carrasco has since resumed mound work with no complications, Hoynes' report doesn't indicate that the right-hander has progressed to facing hitters at any point during the league-wide shutdown. With that in mind, Carrasco may find himself behind Cleveland's other starting pitchers when full-squad workouts resume, but the prevailing expectation is that he'll at least be available for the start of the season, even if he faces more restrictions with his pitch counts initially.

  • Indians' Emmanuel Clase: Suspended 80 games

    Clase (lat) has been suspended for 80 games after testing positive for the PED Boldenone, Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reports.

    The key returning piece in the Indians' trade of Corey Kluber to the Rangers in December, Clase was expected to work in a high-leverage role out of the bullpen. With there being no way of predicting yet how long the 2020 season might be, the 80-game suspension figures to prevent him from taking the field for a large chunk of the shortened campaign, but he could potentially return for the stretch run. He's also still rehabbing from a lat injury, but that issue should be long cleared up by the time he's served his suspension.

  • Indians' Mike Clevinger: Deems self fully healthy

    Clevinger (knee) said in a recent interview with Indians broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus that he feels "completely like myself again" since requiring surgery Feb. 14 to repair a partially torn meniscus, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "There's no subconscious hesitations like I felt the first couple of bullpens," Clevinger said. "It feels natural now. I guess my only concern was I have a pretty violent lock leg, lead leg, and that's the knee I tore. That was my only worry. The strengthening stuff came back real fast. It healed super, super quick."

    Prior to Major League Baseball going on hiatus in mid-March, Clevinger didn't appear poised to miss significant time to begin the season after he was cleared for mound work shortly before spring training was suspended. Now that he's had an extra month to strengthen his knee, Clevinger appears set to face no restrictions whenever the Indians are cleared to resume workouts. He'll likely be in the mix for the Opening Day nod after turning in a 2.71 ERA and 1.06 WHIP over 126 innings in 2019.

  • Indians' Tyler Naquin: Recovery progressing well

    Naquin (knee) is progressing well, according to manager Terry Francona, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    He was set to miss most of April while recovering from September knee surgery, and it's possible that he will be a full-go when play resumes. It sounds like Oscar Mercado is locked into the center field spot and Franmil Reyes should be the everyday right fielder while Domingo Santana starts at designated hitter. That could allow Naquin to occupy the strong side of a left field platoon with Jordan Luplow.

  • Indians' Mike Clevinger: Doing well, per Tito

    Clevinger (knee) is doing well, according to manager Terry Francona, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Francona did not elaborate on where Clevinger stands from a health standpoint, but he was expected to be ready or almost ready for game action if the season had started on time. No detailed news is likely good news in this instance, so fantasy managers should be operating as if Clevinger will be a full-go when play resumes.

  • Indians' Emmanuel Clase: Progressing well

    Clase (back) is progressing well in his recovery, according to manager Terry Francona, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    He is already throwing in the Dominican Republic, according to Zack Meisel of The Athletic. It was reported Feb. 27 that he would be out for 2-to-3 months, so we are nearing the lower bound of that estimate. The Indians will likely proceed cautiously with Clase in his return to game action, but it's feasible that he could be available when play resumes.

  • Indians' Carlos Carrasco: Throwing bullpen sessions

    Carrasco (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions in Cleveland, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Manager Terry Francona said Carrasco is doing well in his recovery from elbow inflammation. He will still need to ramp up to simulated games before he'll be ready to work as a starter, but at least it sounds like he is progressing well following a mid-March injection in his sore right elbow.
