Josh Tomlin was charged with four runs in six innings in a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

He gave up seven hits, including two home runs. On the good side, he fanned eight batters without walking anybody. Tomlin has been sneaky good this year. His record falls to 10-3 with a 3.48 ERA. He has an 80/12 K/BB ratio in 113 2/3 innings.

Francisco Lindor stroked two singles in four at-bats and scored a run on Saturday.

He is batting .304 with 12 homers, 68 runs, 49 RBI and 13 steals. Lindor has hit better in the majors than he ever did in the minors. He has been a very productive fantasy shortstop the last two seasons and is still only 22 years old.

Juan Uribe (head) is out of the Indians' lineup Saturday.

Uribe took a pitch off his helmet on Friday night but thankfully avoided any type of serious injury. Indians manager Terry Francona said Uribe woke up with a minor headache but "dodged a big bullet."

Trevor Bauer was tagged for five runs over four innings in a loss to the Orioles on Friday.

It was his shortest start since April 30, but that really shouldn’t count as he was just getting stretched out at the time. It was a rough outing no matter how you slice it, as he gave up a season-high two homers and walked a season-high four batters. Bauer was very solid through May and June, but his last three outings have been shaky. He’ll look to get back on track next week against the Athletics.

Juan Uribe is considered day-to-day after leaving Friday's game with a head contusion.

Uribe was hit in the helmet by a pitch, but seems to have avoided any type of serious injury. Expect him to return to the lineup at some point before the end of the weekend.
Jul 22 - 9:40 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall was scratched from Friday's lineup due to illness.

Indians manager Terry Francona referred to it as "intestinal turmoil." Chisenhall should be fine in a day or two. Abraham Almonte took his spot in right field.

Michael Brantley has undergone surgery to remove scar tissue from his right biceps tendon.

Brantley hasn't been able to shake his nagging shoulder issues following last October's operation, but if he's only dealing with a scar tissue build-up that's probably a best-case scenario. He's expected to be ready to resume baseball activities sometime next week. It's unclear when he might make it back with the Indians.

Indians recalled RHP Cody Anderson from Triple-A Columbus.

Anderson holds a 7.48 ERA over nine appearances -- eight starts -- with the Indians this season. He'll work in long relief.
Jul 22 - 3:30 PM

Indians placed RHP Joseph Colon on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 17, with right shoulder inflammation.

It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Cody Anderson has taken his spot on the roster and in the bullpen.
Jul 22 - 3:29 PM

Indians signed LHP Joe Thatcher to a minor league contract.

The veteran southpaw exercised the opt-out clause in his deal with the Dodgers back in early June and has been looking for a better opportunity since. He registered a 3.86 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 20/5 K/BB ratio over 14 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City. Given the struggles in the Cleveland bullpen, he should work his way up to the big league club in relative short order.

Indians OF prospect Bradley Zimmer slugged a career-high four hits Wednesday in a win for Double-A Akron.

All of his hits were singles. Zimmer has done a superb job since moving to the leadoff spot. In four games batting leadoff, he's hit .438 with two RBI and a .500 slugging percentage. The 23-year-old is still striking out too much (111 whiffs in 325 at-bats) but the power (14 HR, 52 RBI) and speed (31 steals on 43 attempts) have both been there. He's also scored 54 times this season, which ties him for seventh-most in the Eastern League. Zimmer went to Cleveland with the 21st overall pick in the 2014 draft after starring at the University of San Francisco.

Tyler Naquin went 3-for-4 with two homers, a double, and six RBI in the Indians' 11-4 rout of the Royals on Wednesday afternoon in Kansas City.

Naquin hit a solo shot off Ian Kennedy in the third inning, a two-run double off Kennedy in the fourth inning, and then he capped off the Indians' seven-run fifth inning with a three-run bomb against reliever Peter Moylan. The 25-year-old outfielder is making a strong case for 2016 American League Rookie of the Year honors, now with a .324/.387/.636 batting line, 12 home runs, and 29 RBI in 63 games.
Jul 20 - 5:39 PM

Carlos Carrasco delivered six shutout innings Wednesday in the Indians' defeat of the Royals.

Carrasco carved his way through the Kansas City lineup with ease, yielding just one hit and two walks while striking out six. He was backed by 11 runs (and five homers) from the Cleveland offense. Carrasco will carry a 2.31 ERA into his next start at home versus the Nationals.
Jul 20 - 5:36 PM

Danny Salazar allowed three runs -- two earned -- in 6 2/3 innings and struck out seven in defeating the Royals on Tuesday.

Salazar essentially maintained his AL-best 2.75 ERA tonight. He was making his first start in 10 days after skipping the All-Star Game due to some minor elbow soreness.
Jul 19 - 11:39 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Royals.

Lindor has been one of the AL's steadiest hitters this year, coming in at .293 in April, .316 in May, .301 in June and .293 so far in July. It's just too bad he's slowed down on the basepaths; he's 0-for-1 stealing bases in July. He had 10 steals the first two months and just three since.
