Indians optioned LHP Ryan Merritt to Triple-A Columbus.

Merritt continues to shuttle back and forth between Triple-A and the big leagues whenever the Indians need an extra arm. Merritt owns a 3.60 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 2/0 K/BB ratio in five innings of work with the Tribe this season.
Jul 22 - 3:23 PM

Indians activated RHP Danny Salazar from the 10-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the Indians' rotation on Saturday against the Blue Jays. Prior to landing on the shelf with his shoulder woes, Salazar compiled a 5.40 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 77/28 K/BB ratio across 55 innings.
Jul 22 - 3:22 PM

Edwin Encarnacion went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI on Friday, leading the Indians to a 13-3 rout over the Blue Jays.

Encarnacion was responsible for the bulk of the damage against his former club. He got the Indians on the board with a solo shot off of Marco Estrada in the second inning then added on a two-run double in the fifth to give them a 5-3 lead. He also added an RBI single during the eight-run seventh inning. With the three-hit attack, Encarnacion is hitting .261/.372/.485 with 20 homers and 54 RBI in his first season with the Tribe.

Abraham Almonte swatted his third home run of the season as the Indians routed the Blue Jays on Friday.

He finished just a double shy of the cycle in this one, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and three RBI. His three-run homer came during an eight-run seventh inning that put the game out of reach. Almonte is now hitting .248/.336/.416 with three long balls and 10 RBI on the season.
Jul 21 - 11:00 PM

Bradley Zimmer went 1-for-4 with a pair of RBI as the Indians crushed the Blue Jays on Friday night.

Hitting out of the leadoff spot in the Indians' lineup, Zimmer came through with a two-run single in the seventh inning to cap off the scoring in the ballgame. The rookie outfielder is hitting .264/.328/.408 with five homers, 27 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 192 plate appearances.
Jul 21 - 10:56 PM

Trevor Bauer picked up his eighth victory of the season on Friday, holding the Blue Jays to three runs on six hits over five frames.

Bauer punched out six on the night while issuing four free passes. An elevated pitch count of 112 forced him from the game before he was able to record an out in the sixth inning. The inconsistent right-hander now sits at 8-8 on the season with a 5.58 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 111/41 K/BB ratio across 98 1/3 innings. He'll do battle against the Angels at home on Thursday.
Jul 21 - 10:53 PM

Indians purchased the contract of LHP Tyler Olson from Triple-A Columbus.

Olson has posted a 3.32 ERA and 52/11 K/BB ratio over 40 2/3 relief innings for Columbus this season. He'll give the Tribe another lefty in the bullpen with Boone Logan (lat) going down.
Jul 21 - 3:29 PM

Indians placed LHP Boone Logan on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 20, with a strained left lat.

Logan was injured during an appearance Wednesday and figures to be sidelined for a while. Tyler Olson has taken his spot in the bullpen.
Jul 21 - 3:26 PM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Ramirez continues to out-and-out roll this season. In Wednesday's game, he hit a two-run single off Matt Cain in the third inning to give the Tribe a 3-1 advantage. They would hold a 4-2 lead heading to the bottom of the eighth, when the Giants broke through for three runs to flip the score. For the campaign as a whole, Ramirez is slashing a sparkling .324/.378/.580 with 17 homers, 50 RBI and 10 steals over the course of 92 games played.
Jul 19 - 8:18 PM

Michael Brantley went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a double and two runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Brantley picked up an RBI single against Matt Cain in the third inning and also collected double No. 18 on the season in the loss. The veteran outfielder is hitting .300/.365/.429 with five homers, 40 RBI and 10 steals in 72 games for the campaign as a whole.
Jul 19 - 8:11 PM

Carlos Carrasco surrendered two runs on six hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Carrasco allowed an RBI ground out to Brandon Crawford in the first inning and a solo home run to Denard Span in the fifth, but otherwise kept the Giants from dinging the scoreboard. He struck out six and walked two in the contest. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Angels. Carrasco will carry a 3.62 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 130/31 K/BB ratio (117 innings) into that showdown.
Jul 19 - 8:06 PM

Boone Logan was lifted from an appearance in Wednesday's game against the Giants due to a left lat injury.

Logan hurt himself on his 17th pitch. He will undergo an MRI on Thursday, one which should shed more light on the severity of the lat injury. The expectation is that he will most likely be placed on the disabled list.
Jul 19 - 7:32 PM

Boone Logan was pulled from an appearance in Wednesday's game against the Giants due to a possible arm injury.

After making his 17th pitch of the game, Logan went down in pain and was seen grabbing his left arm. His visceral reaction after the pitch is somewhat concerning, but the Giants should offer a more specific update as to the exact nature of the injury when Wednesday's game is completed.
Jul 19 - 6:37 PM

Corey Kluber (neck) will not make his next scheduled start Friday against the Blue Jays.

The hope is he can pitch in Sunday's series finale, but that's not certain either. Trevor Bauer will start Friday and Danny Salazar (shoulder) will return from the disabled list to start Saturday's game. Kluber is battling a neck issue that hopefully isn't related to his chronic back problems. The ace right-hander owns a dominant 1.56 ERA with 94 strikeouts over his last 63 1/3 innings.
Jul 19 - 2:08 PM

Danny Salazar (shoulder) will return to the Indians' rotation Saturday against the visiting Blue Jays.

Salazar got the go-ahead after striking out nine batters over six scoreless innings Sunday in a rehab start with Triple-A Columbus. He also threw five shutout innings last Tuesday at Low-A Mahoning Valley. The 27-year-old right-hander isn't a very reliable fantasy bet for the stretch run, but there are worse SP stashes.
