Top Indians News

  • Indians' Jake Bauers: Traded to Cleveland

    The Rays traded Bauers to Cleveland on Thursday as part of a three-team deal with the Mariners, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The Rays will receive Yandy Diaz and a player to be named later in the swap. In addition, the Mariners will get Edwin Encarnacion, while the Indians acquire Carlos Santana in the trade, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. It's unclear where exactly Bauers will fit in with the Indians, though a future in the outfield could be more likely than at first base, especially now that Santana is on the roster. Across 96 games with Tampa Bay this past season, Bauers hit .201/.316/.384 with 11 home runs, 48 RBI and six stolen bases.

  • Indians' Carlos Santana: Returns to Cleveland

    Santana was traded from Seattle to Cleveland in exchange for Edwin Encarnacion on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The Indians also dealt Yandy Diaz and a player to be named later to Tampa Bay for Jake Bauers, per Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times.

    Santana was recently dealt to Seattle last week after spending the past season in Philadelphia. The first baseman hit just .229/.352/.414 with 24 home runs and 86 RBI in 161 games for the Phillies, and like the rest of the team, struggled down the final stretch in September. Prior to his brief stint in Philadelphia, Santana had played his entire career in Cleveland. Outside of a dip in batting average and slugging percentage, there were some inspiring signs from Santana's 2018 campaign, including a career-best 13.7 percent strikeout rate and 16.2 percent walk rate, which was his highest since 2015. Look for Santana to see some time alongside Yonder Alonso at first base to go along with a primary role as the Indians' designated hitter, though Bauers figures to be in the mix at both positions as well.

  • Indians' Bradley Zimmer: Rehab progressing well

    Zimmer's rehab following July shoulder surgery is going well, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The outfielder has been rehabbing at the Indians' spring facility in Goodyear, Arizona. He is expected to begin a throwing program and a hitting program soon. The 26-year-old appeared in just 34 games prior to the injury in 2018, hitting .226/.281/.330 with two homers and four steals.

  • Indians' Danny Salazar: To begin throwing shortly

    Salazar (shoulder) is expected to start a throwing program sometime this week in Arizona, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Salazar underwent season-ending surgery on his right shoulder back in July, and it's unclear as to whether he'll be cleared for a normal spring training. The Indians figure to ease him back into throwing and will see how his shoulder responds. An update on Salazar's status should come closer to February.

  • Indians' Anthony Gose: Inks deal with Cleveland

    Gose agreed to a minor-league contract with the Indians on Saturday.

    Gose hasn't appeared in a major-league game since 2016 but will provide some additional pitching depth within Cleveland's organization for the upcoming year. Across 21 appearances at Double-A Frisco in the Rangers' system, he logged a disastrous 6.52 ERA and 2.09 WHIP in 19.1 innings of relief.

  • Indians' Carlos Carrasco: Extended through 2022

    The Indians signed Carrasco to a contract extension through 2022 on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The Indians exercised Carrasco's $10.25 million club option for 2020 before inking him to a two-year extension, which includes a vesting option for 2023. The 31-year-old righty has been a crucial rotation member for the Indians over the past four seasons, posting a combined 3.40 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 10.3 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9 over that stretch (722 innings).

  • Indians' Trayce Thompson: Latches on with Cleveland

    Thompson signed a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with the Indians.

    Thompson continues to bounce around the league after spending the 2018 season split between the Athletics, White Sox, Yankees and Dodgers. He played in 51 big-league games, slashing just .117/.162/.211 with nine RBI in 128 at-bats. The 27-year-old will compete to earn a spot as a fourth or fifth outfielder on Cleveland's roster this upcoming spring.

  • Indians' James Hoyt: Inks deal with Indians

    Hoyt (knee) agreed to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with Cleveland.

    Hoyt re-signed with the Indians after spending the final three months of the regular season with the organization. He only wound up appearing in three games for Triple-A Columbus before hitting the disabled list with a knee injury, though he should be back to full health prior to spring training.

  • Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Traded to Cleveland

    Rodriguez was dealt from the Nationals to the Indians along with Daniel Johnson and a player to be named later in exchange for Yan Gomes, Paul Hoynes of reports.

    Rodriguez surfaced in the big leagues during the 2018 season, but he struggled to find success, posting a 5.71 ERA and 1.54 WHIP with a 39:37 K:BB over 52 frames as both a starter and reliever. However, he figures to receive at least a few opportunities to take the mound with the Indians in 2019 and remains a highly-touted prospect.

  • Indians' Danny Salazar: Avoids arbitration

    Salazar (shoulder) agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million contract with Cleveland on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of reports.

    Salazar failed to pitch this past season due to a shoulder injury that required exploratory arthroscopic surgery. It's unclear whether the 28-year-old has resumed throwing at this point, so his status for Opening Day remains up in the air. In 2017, he posted a 4.28 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with a 12.7 K/9 across 103 innings.
