Jay Bruce (heel) went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts in his return to action Sunday against the Mariners.

Bruce was removed from Saturday's game for precautionary reasons due to discomfort in his left heel, but fortunately it doesn't appear to be serious. The 30-year-old is batting .248/.324/.465 with five homers and 20 RBI over 37 games with the Indians.

Jose Ramirez slugged his 29th home run of the season Sunday in the Indians' defeat of the Mariners.

Ramirez singled and scored in the top of the fourth and launched a solo shot off Mariners starter Mike Leake in the top of the sixth, finishing the afternoon 2-for-4 with one RBI and two runs scored. The 25-year-old superstar is now batting .317/.370/.583 with 81 RBI and 101 runs scored in 146 games this season for the American League Central champions. You might recall that Cleveland signed him to a five-year, $26 million extension this spring. It's already one of the best contracts in the game.
Sep 24 - 7:35 PM

Cody Allen nailed down his 29th save of the year on Sunday afternoon against the Mariners.

Allen retired all three batters he faced, two via strikeout, to seal a 4-2 victory for Cleveland. The 28-year-old closer boasts a 2.81 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 86/21 K/BB ratio in 64 innings this season.
Sep 24 - 7:18 PM

Corey Kluber earned his 18th win of the season Sunday in the Indians' 4-2 defeat of the Mariners.

Ben Gamel hit a two-run homer off Kluber in the bottom of the fifth, but it came after an inning-opening fielding error by shortstop Francisco Lindor so both runs were unearned. Kluber yielded only five other hits -- four of them singles -- and he struck out 10. The 31-year-old ace boasts a 2.27 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 262/36 K/BB ratio in 198 2/3 innings this season for the American League Central champions. His final regular-season start will come at home against the White Sox.

Carlos Santana is getting X-rays on his left shoulder.

The shoulder got bent back awkwardly on a play at first base in the bottom of the fifth inning. He remained in the game, but there is obviously at least a little concern. "We won't play him Sunday, but he's going to get an X-ray that's precautionary," Indians manager Terry Francona told the media on Saturday night. "But you could see the way he was swinging (after the collision) that he was letting it go pretty good."
Sep 23 - 9:47 PM

Yan Gomes went 3-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI during an 11-4 rout of the Mariners on Saturday.

He smacked a solo shot off Ryan Garton in the eighth inning, then clocked a three-run bomb off Ariel Miranda in the ninth frame to put the game out of reach. The huge day gives a nice boost to Gomes' paltry .230/.305/.391 slash line. He has 13 home runs and 54 RBI in 102 games as the Indians' primary catcher this season.
Sep 23 - 9:04 PM

Carlos Carrasco allowed one run in 5 2/3 innings to earn a win over the Mariners on Saturday.

He struck out six batters while issuing two walks and surrendering six base hits. He was lights out through five frames, then gave up an RBI double to Kyle Seager in the sixth inning to account for the only run charged to him on the day. Carrasco improves to 17-6 with a 3.43 ERA after 31 starts. He has 212 strikeouts against just 45 walks in 191 2/3 innings. He will likely get only one more start before the playoffs begin.
Sep 23 - 8:56 PM

Jose Ramirez went 3-for-3 with a home run and four RBI as his team thrashed the Mariners on Saturday.

He drove in two runs with a pair of sacrifice flies in the ballgame, then cracked a two-run homer off reliever Ariel Miranda in the ninth inning. The 25-year-old has a .316 batting average with 28 home runs, 80 RBI and 99 runs scored in 145 games. He's pitched in 15 steals in what has been an amazing fantasy campaign.
Sep 23 - 8:51 PM

Austin Jackson went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored against the Mariners on Saturday.

He rapped an RBI single in the third inning and also doubled and walked in the contest. Jackson has been an everyday starter of late for the Indians in the absence of Michael Brantley and Bradley Zimmer. He has a fantastic .324/.389/.500 slash line with seven homers and 34 RBI in 296 plate appearances in his first season with the Tribe.
Sep 23 - 8:46 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a win over the Mariners on Saturday.

He kicked off the game with a solo home run against starter Andrew Moore. He also doubled while serving as the designated hitter in today's ballgame. Lindor is already one of the best fantasy shortstops in the league despite being just 23 years old. He wields a .277 batting average with 33 home runs, 87 RBI and 96 runs scored. He's stolen 14 bags and been caught just three times.
Sep 23 - 8:42 PM

Jay Bruce left Saturday's game against the Mariners after experiencing discomfort in his left heel.

Bruce was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts before getting replaced in the outfield by Greg Allen. His early exit is being called "precautionary," so it's apparently nothing too serious.
Sep 23 - 6:17 PM

Jason Kipnis was held out of the Indians' starting lineup on Saturday.

Manager Terry Francona continues to ease him back into action after a lengthy stay on the disabled list. Tyler Naquin is starting in center field and batting sixth for the Tribe on Saturday.
Sep 23 - 1:56 PM

Trevor Bauer pitched seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday.

Bauer went six scoreless before giving up the tying run in the bottom of the seventh. It was just his second no-decision in three months, and he's still 9-2 in 13 starts since the All-Star break.
Sep 23 - 1:29 AM

Cody Allen, who admitted to some arm soreness earlier in the week, gave up a single and a homer to the only two batters he faced to lose Friday's game against the Mariners.

The Indians only revealed Allen's soreness today after he was surprisingly held out of a second straight game Thursday. In light of his performance tonight, it should be viewed as a serious concern now. Either Andrew Miller or Bryan Shaw could be asked to close tomorrow.
Sep 23 - 1:27 AM

Giovanny Urshela homered off Erasmo Ramirez for the Indians' only run Friday against the Mariners.

The homer, coming in Urshela's 137th at-bat of 2017, was his first in the majors since 2015. He has a pretty terrific glove at third base, but it just doesn't make up for his anemic bat; he has a .574 OPS at the moment.
