Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have acquired Brandon Moss from the Indians for pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky.

Jul 30 - 9:02 AM

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Cardinals are talking to the Indians about Brandon Moss.

Moss can play both first base and corner outfield, which fits the Cardinals' immediate need now that Matt Holliday is headed back to the disabled list with a re-strain of his right quad. Moss has struggled in his first season with the Indians, but the 31-year-old registered an .844 OPS (135 OPS+) for the A's between 2012-2014. Cotillo says there's been talk of a one-for-one swap of Moss and Cardinals pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky.

Corey Kluber went the distance against the Royals Wednesday, recording six strikeouts while allowing just one run in a 12-1 victory.

He missed out on a shutout when Alex Rios had an RBI groundout in the ninth inning, but that's hardly anything to quibble over. Kluber permitted just five base knocks on the day and issued just one free pass as the Tribe rolled to a win. The reigning American League Cy Young winner has a superb 172/32 K/BB ratio over 157 innings this season to go along with a 3.44 ERA. He'll get the Angels on the road next.

Indians acquired LHP Jayson Aquino from the Pirates in exchange for cash considerations.

Aquino was designated for assignment a week ago. He holds a 3.54 ERA with 66 strikeouts over 104 1/3 innings at the High-A level this season.
Jul 29 - 4:00 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Royals.

Lindor singled in his first at-bat, hit a sacrifice fly in his second and capped off his day with a three-run homer in the sixth. The shortstop has really turned it up a notch of late, hitting .324 with four homers and 12 RBI over his last 16 games. It was an offensive explosion for the Tribe, as they pounded out 18 hits -- including four home runs -- and 12 runs.
Jul 29 - 3:30 PM

Indians OF prospect Ka'ai Tom finished 5-for-5 with four RBI in Tuesday's win for Low-A Mahoning Valley.

Tuesday was Tom's eighth multi-hit game of the season. The 2015 fifth-round pick hasn't homered yet, but he's made up for the lack of power by stealing 10 bases in only 29 games. Tom has shown excellent plate discipline, drawing 21 walks in his first 131 plate appearances.
Jul 29 - 3:25 PM

Indians recalled OF Tyler Holt from Triple-A Columbus.

He's taking David Murphy's spot on the roster. Holt has spent almost all season at Columbus, hitting .286/.369/.348 with 20 steals. He'll back up at all three outfield spots.
Jul 29 - 8:54 AM

Trevor Bauer pitched a nine-inning complete game, allowing two runs, but took a tough-luck loss against the Royals on Tuesday.

The struggling Indians provided Bauer only one run of support. He then went in position for the loss after allowing a solo home run to Eric Hosmer with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Overall, the right-hander gave up five hits and a walk while striking out six. Bauer has a 4.13 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 121/48 K/BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings this season. He will look to avoid a fourth consecutive loss when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland in his next start.
Jul 28 - 10:43 PM

Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with a double, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's contest to the Royals.

Kipnis couldn't be brought around to score as the Indians' 2-5 hitters combined to go 2-for-14. The Indians have dropped six games in a row, averaging 1.7 runs per game. But it's not the fault of Kipnis, who has an outstanding .330/.405/.485 triple-slash line on the year.
Jul 28 - 10:40 PM

Indians acquired SS Eric Stamets from the Angels in exchange for OF David Murphy.

Stamets is known for a good glove but has hit just .262/.317/.351 with limited power in his four pro seasons. He was ranked prior to the season by Baseball America as the Angels' No. 23 prospect.
Jul 28 - 8:39 PM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Tuesday.

It's just a day off for the 28-year-old catcher, who has a disappointing .223/.249/.346 slash line on the season. He's a pretty good bet to produce better numbers down the stretch. Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate Tuesday night against the Royals.
Jul 28 - 4:01 PM

Indians transferred LHP Nick Hagadone from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Michael Roth on the 40-man roster. Hagadone underwent surgery last week to repair a fracture in his left elbow and is expected to miss 6-9 months.
Jul 28 - 3:18 PM

Indians optioned 1B Jesus Aguilar to Triple-A Columbus.

Aguilar was called up on Friday and went 2-for-9 with an RBI over three games with the big club. Michael Roth will take his place on the active roster.
Jul 28 - 3:17 PM

Indians purchased the contract of LHP Michael Roth from Triple-A Columbus.

Roth, who previously pitched in the majors with the Angels, had a 4.19 ERA and 70/37 K/BB ratio in 114 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A. The 25-year-old southpaw will provide some bullpen depth for Cleveland.
Jul 28 - 3:13 PM

Cody Anderson was hit around in Monday's loss to the Royals, yielding seven runs in 5 2/3 innings.

Anderson entered the start having allowed seven runs in 33 innings spanning five starts. He doubled that with Monday's effort. The Royals got to him early, as Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer in the first and Omar Infante tacked on a solo shot in the second. Anderson allowed eight hits and a pair of walks overall while striking out two. He'll bring a 3.26 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP, and a 14/5 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings into his next start in Oakland versus the Athletics.
