Indians manager Terry Francona said Friday that Yan Gomes will catch on Saturday and Sunday.

It will be the first time this season that the backstop has caught consecutive games as he has been eased back into action in his return from the disabled list. The 27-year-old is struggling at the dish, hitting just .133/.156/.167 with one RBI and a 9/1 K/BB ratio in his first eight games.

Trevor Bauer allowed two runs over seven innings and struck out 10 against the Mariners on Friday.

Bauer has pitched at least seven innings in four starts, giving up five runs over 29 1/3 innings during that span. He did take the loss tonight, but his ERA is down to 2.97.

Carlos Santana will return from the paternity leave list and join the Indians on Sunday in Seattle.

Santana was away from the team to be with his wife for the birth of their baby girl, and he has enjoyed a couple of days with his newborn. Expect him back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Mariners.
May 29 - 8:19 PM

Cody Allen struck out two and tossed a scoreless ninth to convert his 10th save of the season in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Mariners.

Allen did not look long for the late innings in going 0-2 with a 11.57 ERA in April, but he's converted all six of his save chances in May and given up an acceptable four runs in 13 innings. The overall numbers will still make your eyes bleed (5.85 ERA and 1.65 WHIP), but Allen will continue to drag those down to baseline.
May 29 - 1:08 AM

Brandon Moss finished 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Mariners on Thursday.

It was his third homer of the past eight games. Cleveland asked for power when acquiring Moss and that's exactly what they've gotten: He's on pace for 28 homers and 97 RBI. Everything else is still making the transit from California, as Moss sports an underwhelming .227/.300/.447 slash line.
May 29 - 1:03 AM

Corey Kluber punched out 13 batters and gave up three runs over seven innings in a 5-3 win over the Mariners on Thursday.

He gave up seven hits and walked one. Kluber has 50 strikeouts over his past four starts, which means that he very likely enjoyed a better month than we all did (he gave up a combined five runs over 32 innings in those outings). Prior to that stretch he was 0-5 with a 5.04 ERA. But if you sold low at that time, you deserve what's coming to you. Kluber leads the league with 96 strikeouts.

Indians purchased the contract of OF Jerry Sands from Triple-A Columbus.

Sands was called back up from Triple-A with Carlos Santana going on the paternity leave list. The 27-year-old went 8-for-23 (.348) with two doubles and four RBI over nine games with the Indians earlier this season. He'll provide some bench depth over the next couple of days.
May 28 - 5:51 PM

Indians placed C Carlos Santana on the paternity leave list.

Santana can remain on paternity leave for 24 to 72 hours. The Indians have called up Jerry Sands to take his place on the active roster.
May 28 - 5:48 PM

Indians recalled RHP Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.

Adams has allowed one run over 5 2/3 innings with the Indians this season. He'll pitch in middle relief.
May 28 - 5:45 PM

Indians placed RHP Scott Atchison on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle sprain.

Austin Adams will replace him in Cleveland's bullpen. Atchison, 39, has posted a 5.74 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings this season. No word yet on how much time he'll need to miss.
May 28 - 5:44 PM

Carlos Santana is expected to be placed on the paternity leave list.

Santana's wife gave birth to a baby girl Thursday morning. The Indians should make an official roster move soon.
May 28 - 5:40 PM

Indians prospect OF Tyler Naquin had a perfect day at the plate Wednesday for Double-A Akron, going 4-for-4 with a home run and three RBI.

Naquin opened the season on the disabled list as a result of a hand injury he suffered last June, and he didn’t join Akron until late April. He’s quickly making up for the lost time, though, batting .318/.408/.430 through 25 games. The 24-year-old also has nine extra-base hits—his dinger on Wednesday was his first of 2015—and five stolen bases, and he sports a solid 19/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio on the season.
May 28 - 4:11 PM

Carlos Carrasco pitched eight innings of one-run ball and struck out eight as the Indians crushed the Rangers 12-3 on Wednesday.

It can be hard to see how Carrasco still has a 4.24 ERA with his 66/13 K/BB ratio and just five homers allowed in 57 1/3 innings, but then one remembers just how bad the Indians defense is and it's a bit easier to figure out.
May 27 - 3:18 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall finished 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Chisenhall has been a big disappointment, but there's still plenty of time for him to turn it around. Fortunately for him, the Indians don't have anyone else they want to break in at third base.
May 27 - 3:13 PM

Michael Bourn went 3-for-5 with a stolen base Wednesday against the Rangers.

Bourn is batting .317 with a .394 OBP in 60 at-bats this month after coming in at .200 with a .264 OBP in April and losing his leadoff spot as a result. The Indians are happy with Jason Kipnis at the top of the order, so Bourn will probably keep hitting low in the order for the foreseeable future.
