Indians declined OF Ryan Raburn's $3 million club option for 2016.
Raburn will receive a $100,000 buyout and become a free agent. It would have been reasonable for the Indians to keep him around, as the 34-year-old batted .301 with eight home runs and a .936 OPS in a part-time role this season. He should draw plenty of interest as a platoon player against left-handed pitching. Nov 4 - 3:43 PM

Ryan Raburn went 1-for-2 with an RBI as the Indians dropped the second game of Saturday's doubleheader to the Tigers.

Raburn lined an RBI single to center field off Randy Wolf in the first inning, starting a two-run rally. Sadly, that would be the extent of the Tribe's offense in the contest. He has been outstanding in a platoon role this season, slashing .296/.379/.541 with seven homers and 28 RBI.

Ryan Raburn belted a pair of solo home runs in Monday's win over the White Sox.

Raburn drew the start against a left-hander as he usually does and it didn't even matter that this southpaw happened to be Chris Sale. He drew a walk off Sale in the second inning before homering off the lefty in the fourth to tie the game and again in the sixth to take the lead. Raburn is having a terrific season in a platoon role, sporting a .299/.384/.552 batting line.

Indians activated OF Ryan Raburn off the bereavement list.

Aug 15 - 5:59 PM

Indians placed OF Ryan Raburn on the bereavement list.

Raburn will be on the bereavement list for the near future, though the reason for his placement has not been disclosed. In a corresponding move, the team called up infielder/outfielder Zach Walters.

Ryan Raburn clobbered his fourth home run of the season as the Indians fell to the Orioles in Baltimore on Friday.

A notorious lefty masher, Raburn tagged O's starter Wei-Yin Chen for the solo shot in the fourth inning. He finished the night 1-for-2 plus a walk, raising his season slash to an impressive .299/.377/.542 with four homers and 19 RBI.

Ryan Raburn went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Raburn continues to start in the middle of the Indians lineup against lefties, and he rewarded his manager's faith on Tuesday. Raburn blasted a solo homer in the first inning off Rangers starter Wandy Rodriguez, his second home run of the season. Raburn is batting .309/.368/.544 in a platoon role with the Tribe.

Ryan Raburn went 3-for-4 on Thursday, pushing his average up to .371.

One wonders if Raburn even would have had a roster spot had Nick Swisher been healthy to open the year. He's excelled while starting against left-handers, driving in eight runs in 35 at-bats. Still, it hasn't led to any playing time against righties and that won't change with Swisher due back soon.
Apr 30 - 10:15 PM

Ryan Raburn's solo home run was for naught as the Indians dropped Monday's game late to the White Sox.

Raburn ripped a John Danks offering to left field to put the Indians up 1-0 in the second inning, his first homer of the season. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a double as well. Raburn has a career .794 OPS against left-handers, but his fantasy prospects are minimal at this stage of his career.
Apr 20 - 11:22 PM

Ryan Raburn was given a cortisone shot and had his left knee drained after injuring it during Thursday's game.

Raburn underwent arthroscopic surgery last September on the same knee, so it's worrisome that it's bothering him again. However, the Indians are hopeful that he'll be ready to play again on Saturday.
Mar 13 - 12:08 PM

Ryan Raburn exited Thursday's game with left knee discomfort.

The Indians are calling him day-to-day for now, but keep in mind that he underwent arthroscopic surgery last September on the same knee. Assuming he's healthy, Raburn will open 2015 on the Tribe's bench.
Mar 12 - 7:10 PM

Ryan Raburn went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI as the Indians fell to the Royals in Cactus League play on Friday in Arizona.

The 33-year-old utilityman drove home two runs with a single off Yordano Ventura in the first inning, giving the Tribe an early 4-1 advantage. He's looking to rebound from an atrocious 2014 season where he slashed just .200/.250/.297 with four homers and 22 RBI in 195 at-bats.
Mar 6 - 6:36 PM

Ryan Raburn (knee) will make his Cactus League debut Wednesday.

Raburn underwent arthroscopic surgery last September to repair a tear in his left lateral meniscus, but he entered spring training without any restrictions. After a big first season with the Indians in 2013, the veteran outfielder batted just 200/.250/.297 with four homers and 22 RBI across 74 games last season.
Mar 3 - 12:09 PM

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti indicated Saturday that Ryan Raburn (knee) will enter spring training without restrictions.

Raburn underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in mid-September to repair a tear in his lateral meniscus. While he's coming off a putrid 2014 campaign where he slashed a mere .200/.250/.297, he provides versatility and a power bat off the bench against left-handed pitching.
Jan 24 - 10:56 AM

Ryan Raburn underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday.

Raburn will need 6-8 weeks of rehab to recover from an operation that repaired a lateral meniscus tear. His normally offseason routine might be delayed a bit, but he'll be fine for spring training. Raburn batted just .200/.250/.297 with four home runs over 74 games for the Tribe this season.
