Cody Anderson left with a no-decision, yielding two runs in six innings in Tuesday's 10-inning loss to the Blue Jays.

Both runs scored on sacrifice flies in the first and third innings. Overall, Anderson gave up only three hits and two walks while striking out two. It's a heartening performance as the right-hander had been unable to complete the fifth inning in three of his previous five starts. Anderson will bring a 4.17 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, and a 26/12 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings into a road match against the White Sox next week.

Michael Brantley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 10-inning loss versus the Blue Jays.

Brantley hit the first of the Indians' three solo home runs on the night, cutting the Blue Jays' lead to 2-1 in the fourth inning. So continues a superb year for the outfielder, batting .323/.395/.489 with 12 home runs, 74 RBI, 61 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases.

Yan Gomes hit a pair of solo home runs in four at-bats, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's game in 10 innings to the Blue Jays.

Gomes tied the game at 2-2 in the seventh inning with his first solo home run, off of Marco Estrada. In the ninth inning, he re-tied the game at three apiece, swatting his second solo homer off of Roberto Osuna. The catcher now has three homer uns in his last three games, a good sign as he has otherwise not done much offensively. Gomes is batting .225/.265/.389 with 11 home runs and 37 RBI.

Indians activated 1B/3B Chris Johnson from the 15-day disabled list.

Johnson was sidelined on August 14 due to an infection that stemmed from a spider bite. You can't make this stuff up. Between the Braves and Indians this season, he was hitting .259/.290/.351 with a pair of homers and 11 RBI across 174 at-bats. He had played in just six games with the Indians prior to his infection.

Indians activated RHP Gavin Floyd from the 60-day disabled list.

Floyd underwent elbow surgery in March to repair a second break of the right olecranon bone in his pitching elbow. In his last rehab outing, the 32-year-old tossed three innings of scoreless ball, allowing three hits. He'll work out of the Indians pen in September as he looks to gain some momentum heading into free agency in the off-season.

Indians recalled RHP Shawn Armstrong from Triple-A Columbus.

Armstrong joined the Indians for a week earlier in August and he'll be getting another shot now that rosters have expanded. In 49 2/3 innings at Triple-A, he was pitching to a very solid 2.36 ERA, with an 80/26 K/BB ratio. The strong numbers will likely give him a shot at some relief work out of the Tiger pen over the next month.

Cody Allen got the final four outs of Monday's 4-2 win against the Blue Jays, earning his 28th save in the process.

Allen entered with a runner on first base and two outs in the eighth inning, but allowed a double and an intentional walk to load the bases. He bounced back to strike out Justin Smoak to end the frame. In the ninth, Allen worked around two one-out singles with a Ben Revere foul out and a Josh Donaldson strikeout to finalize the game. The right-hander is 28-for-31 in save situations this season with a 3.54 ERA and an 84/24 K/BB ratio in 56 innings.

Danny Salazar limited the Blue Jays to two runs while racking up 10 strikeouts in seven innings in Monday's win.

Both runs came around in the fifth inning on Josh Donaldson's two-run triple. Salazar held the Blue Jays to six hits and a walk along with the 10 strikeouts. The right-hander has pitched magnificently in the second half, boasting a 2.39 ERA over his last eight starts. On the season, Salazar has a 3.27 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP and a 172/42 K/BB ratio over 151 1/3 innings. He'll match up with the Tigers in a road start next.

Indians 1B prospect Nelson Rodriguez was named Carolina League MVP.

Rodriguez was promoted to Double-A Akron on August 11 but he certainly made his mark in the Carolina League before leaving, hitting .275 with 17 homers and 84 RBI in 125 games for High-A Lynchburg. Teammate Clint Frazier joins Rodriguez on the year-end Carolina League All-Star team.

Carlos Santana went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI in Sunday's 9-2 victory over the Angels.

Santana hit an RBI double in the first inning to make it 2-0, then added a two-run single in the sixth inning to make it 8-1. The first baseman is now on a seven-game hitting streak. On the season, he's hitting .232/.352/.395 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI.
Aug 30 - 4:04 PM

Josh Tomlin picked up the win on Sunday, holding the Angels to two runs in seven innings.

Tomlin made only one mistake, resulting in a solo home run to Grant Green in the sixth inning. He allowed the leadoff batter to reach on a single to begin the eighth inning before giving way to Zach McAllister, who allowed the inherited runner to score. Tomlin allowed six hits, walked none, and struck out eight in the effort. He's been effective in four starts thus far, owning a 3.08 ERA with a 0.76 WHIP and a 26/2 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings. The right-hander will take on the Tigers in a road match next.
Aug 30 - 4:02 PM

Abraham Almonte smacked a grand slam as part of a 2-for-4 effort in Sunday's win against the Angels.

Almonte sent the Indians' lead to 6-0 when he cleared the bases with a grand slam to right-center off of Jered Weaver in the fifth inning. His bat had cooled off considerably following his first week with the Angels after coming over from the Padres in early August, but he still has a .270/.321/.541 batting line with his new team along with three home runs and 14 RBI in 81 plate appearances.
Aug 30 - 3:55 PM

Indians LHP prospect Jayson Aquino came within five outs of a no-hitter Saturday in a win for High-A Lynchburg.

He scattered four hits and one walk over 8 2/3 shutout innings. 63 of Aquino's 86 pitches went for strikes. The 22-year-old has already been traded twice this season despite a respectable 3.36 ERA in 131 1/3 innings. Saturday's victory was his first since joining Lynchburg on August 7.

Yan Gomes drove in five runs Saturday in the Indians' 8-3 rout of the Angels.

Gomes hit a sacrifice fly that scored Carlos Santana in the bottom of the second inning and he launched a grand slam in Cleveland's five-run eighth inning. Gomes is trying to end his mostly-disappointing 2015 on a high note. He's definitely capable of a strong finish.
Aug 29 - 10:54 PM

The Indians will activate right-hander Gavin Floyd (elbow) from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Floyd has spent most of the season recovering from elbow surgery. He struggled in his first rehab appearance but looked much better in his last outing (3 IP, 3 H, 0 R). The 32-year-old will pitch out of the bullpen for Cleveland.
