Top Indians News

  • 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.

  • Indians' Daniel Johnson: Headed to Cleveland

    Johnson was traded from the Nationals to the Indians on Friday in exchange for Yan Gomes, Jon Heyman of reports.

    A 23-year-old outfielder with plus speed and a questionable hit tool, Johnson slashed .267/.321/.410 with six home runs and 21 steals in 391 plate appearances at Double-A. This move is good for Johnson's dynasty-league value, as he was going to have trouble cracking the Nationals' outfield in the coming years. The Indians, meanwhile, have a lot of question marks on the organizational depth chart, so with a strong 2019 season, he could position himself as an option in the near future. He should spend the bulk of the year at Triple-A.

  • Indians' Neil Ramirez: Avoids arbitration

    Ramirez signed a one-year, $1 million deal with Cleveland on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of reports.

    Ramirez appeared in 47 games for the Indians in 2018, posting a 4.54 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 51 strikeouts in 41.2 innings of relief. The 29-year-old will have a chance to crack the club's Opening Day roster this spring after starting the past year at the Triple-A level.

  • Indians' Josh Smith: Signs with Cleveland

    Smith signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of reports.

    Smith spent the past two seasons on Boston's farm, splitting time between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. Pitching primarily for the PawSox in 2018, the 29-year-old lefty posted a 3.01 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 97:43 K:BB across 98.2 innings (28 appearances, 14 starts).
