Chris Gimenez went 1-for-1 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's loss to the A's.

Gimenez cracked a solo home run off Sean Manaea to lead off the sixth inning. That homer would represent the only run the Indians managed on the evening. That little power showing aside, the year has mostly been a struggle for Gimenez, who is hitting just .220/.262/.347 with four homers and 11 RBI over 118 at-bats. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Danny Salazar was rocked in Tuesday's loss to the A's, surrendering six runs on eight hits over four-plus innings.

Salazar has now made two starts since coming off the disabled list, neither of which has panned out particularly well. He lasted just one inning in his first outing back and while he managed to clear that low bar on Tuesday, he didn't particularly clear it in effective fashion. Khris Davis mashed a three-run homer off the 26-year-old right-hander in the first inning and the A's would go on to score twice more in the third and once more in the fifth. Prior to hitting the disabled list with right elbow inflammation at the beginning of August, Salazar held a 3.38 ERA. That has been bumped to 3.90 with his recent ineffective results. A road start against the Angels shows next on his schedule as he looks to return to pre-injury form.

Carlos Carrasco fanned nine in eight scoreless innings Monday to beat the A's.

Carrasco allowed just four hits and walked none in a dominant outing. He has a 28/0 K/BB ratio over his last three starts, though this is the first of those in which his ERA has gone down. The Indians had been 1-4 in his previous five starts.
Aug 23 - 1:08 AM

Andrew Miller threw a scoreless ninth against the A's on Monday for a save in a 1-0 game.

Cody Allen got the save Sunday and Miller hadn't pitched in four days, so it made all kinds of sense to go to Miller after Carlos Carrasco pitched eight scoreless innings tonight. Allen still looks like the favorite for saves in Cleveland.
Aug 23 - 1:05 AM

Carlos Santana homered and walked as the Indians' leadoff man Monday against the A's.

Santana's homer off Ryan Dull was the only run in the 1-0 win. He's matched his career high with 27 homers this season.
Aug 23 - 12:59 AM

Tommy Hunter (back) has been informed that he's not likely to return until after rosters expand on September 1.

Hunter, out since mid-July with a non-displaced fracture in his lower back, has allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks over four innings since beginning a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus earlier this month. The Indians want him to get more work in the minors before bringing him back. The 30-year-old owns a 3.74 ERA and 17/5 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings this season.
Aug 22 - 9:24 PM

Yan Gomes (shoulder) played catch out to a distance of 100 feet on Monday.

Gomes continues to ramp up his hitting in the cage and has now been playing catch for about a week. The 29-year-old suffered an AC joint separation in his shoulder on July 17, but he's still hoping to make it back this season. Chris Gimenez and Roberto Perez will continue to fill in for now.

Jose Ramirez connected for a go-ahead two-run home run in the eighth inning of Sunday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays.

Ramirez came up clutch with a two-run homer off reliever Brett Cecil with two outs in the eighth inning, flipping a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead and eventual win. The Tribe took two of three games in the weekend series, with Ramirez proving instrumental in both wins. In addition to Sunday's heroics, he also notched a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning of Friday's victory. The 23-year-old third baseman has been nothing short of phenomenal of late and has picked up hits in nine of his last 10 games. For the season as a whole, Ramirez is slashing .310/.365/.461 with 10 homers, 57 RBI and 20 steals across 415 at-bats.
Aug 21 - 4:30 PM

Corey Kluber pitched well in Sunday's no-decision against the Blue Jays, striking out eight while allowing two runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Kluber did walk four, but outside of those free passes, it was a mostly blemish-free afternoon for the former AL Cy Young winner. Both runs on his line scored in the third inning, with Melvin Upton Jr. clocking a solo home run and Josh Donaldson notching an RBI single. Kluber will carry a crisp 3.13 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 171/42 K/BB ratio (169 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Rangers next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 21 - 4:12 PM

Indians optioned RHP Shawn Armstrong to Triple-A Columbus.

Armstrong's latest stint with the big club only lasted a couple days and he didn't make an appearance. He'll return in September.
Aug 21 - 8:41 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Chisenhall capped a five-run fourth inning with his three-run jack against Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez. The homer was the eighth in 94 games for the 27-year-old. He's hitting .298/.342/.472 with those eight homers, 48 RBI, 35 runs scored and six stolen bases overall.
Aug 20 - 11:55 PM

Josh Tomlin allowed six runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Tomlin served up three homers among the nine hits, as he's now given up at least one homer in 21 of 23 starts this year. That was alright when he was winning, but the right-hander has now lost four straight to fall to 11-7 with a 4.39 ERA. He's never missed a lot of bats, so some regression was always in the cards. He'll try to stop the bleeding Thursday against the Rangers.

Indians sent LHP Tyler Olson outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Olson passed through waivers unclaimed and will remain with the Tribe. The 26-year-old southpaw will be placed on the disabled list at Triple-A with an undisclosed illness.
Aug 19 - 10:46 PM

Tyler Naquin delivered a walk-off inside-the-park home run in Friday’s 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

Naquin didn’t start the game — as he entered as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning — but boy, did he find an exciting way to finish it. After Jose Ramirez tied things up against Roberto Osuna with a solo homer, Naquin hit a long drive to right field which deflected off the top of the right field fence and rolled into no-man’s land in right-center field. Melvin Upton, Jr. did his best to come up with the ball and make a throw, but Naquin was able to scamper around the bases without much of a challenge. The rookie outfielder has now played hero in back-to-back nights, as he had a walk-off sacrifice fly against the White Sox on Thursday. This finish was a tad more exciting.
Aug 19 - 9:57 PM

Trevor Bauer was handed a no-decision Friday against the Blue Jays after giving up two runs through eight innings with a career-high 13 strikeouts.

HIs only mistake was a two-run homer by Russell Martin in the first inning. Still, he was on the losing side before the Indians came back in the ninth inning for a dramatic victory. This was Bauer’s longest start since a complete-game victory against the Rays back on June 22. The 25-year-old now owns a 3.88 ERA and 128/55 K/BB ratio in 139 1/3 innings this season. He has a promising matchup against the Athletics up next.
