Danny Salazar allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings to help lead the Indians to a 4-3 win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Salazar only yielded three hits on the night, but two were homers accounting for all three of the Mariners' runs. He also walked three while striking out six. He hasn't flashed his dominant form yet this year, but Salazar is now 2-2 with a 4.34 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in five starts. He'll try to get over .500 when he takes on the Tigers in Detroit on Thursday.

Jose Ramirez belted his sixth home run of the season on Friday, accounting for all of the Tribe's offense in a loss to the Mariners.

His fourth inning shot off of Ariel Miranda pulled the Indians to within a run at 2-1, but that was as close as they would get. Ramirez finished the night 1-for-4 with three strikeouts. He has been one of the few bright spots for the Cleveland offense this season, hitting .337/.394/.614 with six homers and 19 RBI.

Carlos Carrasco logged a quality start in Friday's loss to the Mariners, allowing three runs on six hits over eight innings.

The right-hander punched out seven on the night and didn't walk a batter. All of the damage against him was done via the long ball, with Robinson Cano blasting a two-run homer in the fourth inning and Ben Gamel adding a solo shot in the sixth. With the loss, Carrasco now sits at 2-2 on the season with a stellar 2.04 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 34/7 K/BB ratio across 35 1/3 innings on the season. He'll take on the Tigers his next time out on Wednesday in Detroit.

Michael Brantley is not in the Indians' lineup Friday.

It's a scheduled day off. Lonnie Chisenhall is also sitting out, as the Indians are going with an outfield of Brandon Guyer, Austin Jackson and Abraham Almonte.

Corey Kluber struck out a season-high 10 batters while allowing three runs over seven innings in the Indians' 4-3 win over the Astros on Thursday.

Kluber got off to a rocky start, allowing three runs through the first three innings, but he settled down to keep the Astros off the board for his final four frames. The win was his third in a row, improving him to 3-1 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 37/12 K/BB ratio over 34 1/3 innings. Kluber will try to run his streak to four when he faces the Tigers in Detroit on Tuesday.
Apr 27 - 10:17 PM

Abraham Almonte hit his first home run of 2017 in a win over the Astros on Thursday.

Almonte led off the fifth inning with a solo dinger against Astros starter Mike Fiers. The 27-year-old is batting .234/.390/.362 while playing both left and right field for the Tribe through 18 games. He'll remain a fourth outfielder for the club going forward.
Apr 27 - 10:05 PM

Edwin Encarnacion hit his fourth home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Astros.

The good news is that the homer was the third for Encarnacion in his last eight games. The bad news is that Encarnacion is hitting just .213/.348/.387 through most of the first month of the season. He should be fine, but it's tough for fantasy owners to suffer through after he was likely an early-round pick last month.
Apr 27 - 10:01 PM

Cody Allen gave up three hits but managed to avoid allowing any runs in earning his fifth save Thursday against the Astros.

It's a dance Allen knows well, as he's always seemingly one pitch away from disaster. The good news for the right-hander is that he usually escapes unharmed, as he did Thursday when a Jose Altuve leadoff single was erased after Altuve was caught stealing and, despite two more singles that put runners at first and third with one out, he got out of the jam with a popout and a strikeout. Through nine outings, Allen has a 1.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 18 strikeouts to one walk.
Apr 27 - 9:43 PM

Indians prospect Erik Gonzalez went 2-for-4 for Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

Gonzalez has shown decent power over the first month with eight extra-base hits, but he's struggled to get on base, as seen in his .273 on-base percentage. He's better with the glove than the bat, but he's shown more offensive potential than this, and he's going to have to get back to that if he's going to be even remotely fantasy relevant.
Apr 27 - 2:10 PM

Indians prospect Shawn Morimando gave up one run in seven innings for Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

Morimando allowed just three hits over those seven innings, walking two and striking out five. The left-hander had been struggling coming into the outing, but with a nasty slider and three other average pitches, he has the arsenal to be effective at the next level. He could start for someone, although it might not be Cleveland.
Apr 27 - 1:22 PM

Josh Tomlin registered a quality start but took a loss Tuesday, yielding three runs over six frames versus the Astros.

Tomlin ran into trouble in the fifth inning when he allowed four straight hits to start the frame, which resulted in the only three runs he gave up. He pitched well overall, though, striking out six without issuing a walk. Tomlin has now logged two straight quality starts after two awful showings to start the season. He’ll take on the Mariners on Sunday.
Apr 25 - 9:20 PM

Michael Brantley homered for the second straight day in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Brantley took Dallas Keuchel deep to right field to lead off the ninth inning, which extended his hitting streak to nine games. He's hit all four of his longballs over that stretch and has multiple hits in five of those contests. Brantley has exceeded everyone's expectations in the early going.
Apr 25 - 9:11 PM

Austin Jackson ripped a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Jackson drove one over the right-field wall for an opposite-field shot off of Dallas Keuchel in the third inning to get the scoring going. It was the veteran outfielder's first dinger of the season. Jackson has a nifty .296/.387/.556 line in the early going and will continue to see starts versus lefties.
Apr 25 - 9:03 PM

Brandon Guyer will start in right field Tuesday against the Astros.

No surprise with left-hander Dallas Keuchel on the hill for Houston. Guyer will hit seventh and makes for a useful option in daily formats.
Apr 25 - 2:35 PM

Indians prospect Brady Aiken gave up five runs in five innings of work for Low-A Lake County on Monday.

Aiken did strike out four in his five innings, but that was basically the only positive of the start. He walked three, and that gives him 13 in just under 14 innings. It's too early to "give up" on a talent like this, but so far, the southpaw has been a major disappointment.
