Jerry Sands went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in Sunday's loss to the A's.

The Indians accumulated six total singles in the game. Sands had one of those, and he also had the only RBI on Cleveland's side of the ledger, as he hit a sacrifice fly against Athletics starter Sonny Gray in the first inning. In 27 at-bats this season, Sands has picked up 10 hits, two of which have gone for doubles. He's not going to see the playing time for fantasy relevance.

Trevor Bauer pitched well in earning a no-decision during Sunday's contest with the Athletics, allowing one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Bauer struck out six and walked four, with the lone run scoring in the fifth inning on a Billy Burns RBI single. He's had his hiccups this season, but still holds a 3.98 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 127/52 K/BB ratio in 131 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander is slowly rounding into form as a respectable major league starter. He'll take on the Twins in his next start.

Indians 1B prospect Bobby Bradley homered twice in Saturday's win for Low-A Lake County.

He matched a season-high with five RBI. The 19-year-old leads the Midwest League in home runs (18) and is second in slugging percentage (.483). Unfortunately, he's also second in strikeouts with 112. Bradley may have to change his all-or nothing approach as he advances through Cleveland's farm system.

Indians SS prospect Ronny Rodriguez launched a pair of solo home runs Saturday in a win for Double-A Akron.

Rodriguez has hit .517 over his seven-game hitting streak with four homers and eight RBI. The 23-year-old seems to have turned a page. After hitting .247 in his first two seasons with Akron, Rodriguez has improved his average to .306 this year with career-highs in slugging (.565) and OPS (.887).

The Indians are considering placing Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the disabled list.

Kipnis is not playing Sunday after being limited to designated hitter duty of late because of soreness in his right shoulder. The results of an MRI he had Sunday haven't been revealed, but it's evidently bad enough that the club thinks the second baseman could need at least a couple weeks off. Manager Terry Francona said he would talk things over with the medical staff and general manager Chris Antonetti before a decision is made.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

It's a simple day off. Roberto Perez will catch in Gomes' place.

Jason Kipnis is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday due to soreness in his right shoulder.

The shoulder has limited Kipnis to designated hitter duty of late and now he's out of the lineup altogether. He had the shoulder examined and the Indians are expected to provide more on his status shortly. Carlos Santana is the DH Sunday, with Jerry Sands covering first base.
Aug 2 - 1:25 PM

Cody Anderson yielded four runs -- three earned -- in 6 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the A's.

It was better than his previous two starts, but still a far cry from his first four. If Anderson isn't better next time out, his rotation spot could come up for grabs.
Aug 2 - 2:03 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall homered for the Indians' only run Saturday against the A's.

Chisenhall is 4-for-11 in three games since returning to the majors Thursday. Since he's likely to keep on starting in the outfield against righties, he should be a nice AL-only option the rest of the way.

Jason Kipnis will DH Saturday against the Athletics because of a sore right shoulder.

Kipnis was also the DH for Friday's game. The injury doesn't sound serious but it's something to keep an eye on. Utility man Mike Aviles is starting at second base for the Tribe on Saturday.
Aug 1 - 9:06 PM

Danny Salazar shut down the A's on Friday, allowing just an unearned run and one hit over eight innings to earn his ninth win.

Salazar didn't have a big strikeout game, finishing with just four, but maybe that will be good for him; he really doesn't need to try to strike out everyone in order to succeed. The potential is still there for him to turn into one of the AL's best starters.
Aug 1 - 3:11 AM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal as the Indians' right fielder on Friday.

Chisenhall will get a chance to take some of David Murphy's at-bats, though how much playing he receives will hinge on what happens with Nick Swisher following his return. Ideally, Chisenhall would be in there pretty regularly against right-handers the rest of the way before the Indians have to decide whether to tend him a contract for 2016.
Aug 1 - 3:05 AM

Indians activated RHP Josh Tomlin from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.

He's successfully rehabbed from shoulder surgery but will have to work his way back from the minors. Tomlin should get a shot during the second half.
Jul 31 - 5:48 PM

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

Sands is back on the 40-man roster for the third time this season. He'll provide outfield depth.
Jul 31 - 5:45 PM

Indians sent RHP Toru Murata outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Murata was knocked around in his major league debut last month. The 30-year-old remains in the organization but probably won't get another shot in the big leagues.
