Corey Kluber lasted just 2 1/3 innings while surrendering five runs to the Tigers on Monday.

Well that was unexpected. Kluber struck out two, walked two and allowed seven hits, but the home runs were his real undoing. He gave up a two-run home run to Miguel Cabrera in the first inning, then served up back-to-back home runs to Victor Martinez (two-run blast) and J.D. Martinez (solo shot) with two outs in the third, driving him from the game. Kluber had only given up two home runs total over his previous nine starts combined. He'll just have to put blinders on to this one. On the year, he's been one of the best pitchers in baseball, having struck out 215 in 195+ innings to go with a 2.72 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. He'll look for better results when he faces the White Sox in his next start.

Mike Aviles left Monday's game against the Tigers after three innings due to illness.

Aviles was feeling light-headed and dizzy, so the Indians decided to play it safe. He popped out to second base in his lone at-bat before exiting.
Sep 1 - 5:53 PM

Indians activated C Chris Gimenez from the paternity leave list.

Gimenez was only out for a couple of days. He'll be an emergency catcher for the Indians down the stretch.
Sep 1 - 1:26 PM

Indians activated DH Jason Giambi from the 60-day disabled list.

Giambi was out for almost three months because of inflammation in his left knee. The 43-year-old was batting just .128 with a .488 OPS in 52 plate appearances before the injury and will be nothing more than a pinch-hitter down the stretch for the Indians.
Sep 1 - 1:25 PM

Indians recalled RHP Bryan Price from Triple-A Columbus.

Price has registered a 2.48 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 44/12 K/BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings this season at Columbus. He should do well in a mid-relief role for the Tribe.
Sep 1 - 1:22 PM

Indians recalled 1B Jesus Aguilar from Triple-A Columbus.

Aguilar hit .188 in 16 at-bats with the Indians earlier this season, but he has posted some promising numbers at Triple-A. The 24-year-old will be a bench bat.
Sep 1 - 1:21 PM

Indians recalled RHP Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.

Adams has allowed four earned runs in 3 1/3 innings of relief this season at the major league level. He will pitch in low-leverage situations for the Indians.
Sep 1 - 1:19 PM

Sunday's series finale between the Indians and Royals has been suspended in the 10th inning due to inclement weather and will resume on September 22 in Cleveland.

Just before play was suspended, Lonnie Chisenhall delivered a pinch-hit two-out, two-run double in the 10th inning to give the Tribe a 4-2 lead. In the meanwhile, the Royals will remain a 1/2 game ahead of the Tigers in the American League Central.
Sep 1 - 12:28 AM

T.J. House was terrific on Sunday, hurling seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Royals in Kansas City.

House struck out five on the night without issuing a free pass. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Alex Gordon in the first inning, but he managed to shut down the Royals completely the rest of the night. House left with a 2-1 lead, but Cody Allen was unable to hang on in the ninth inning. He’ll look to further improve upon a 3.92 ERA and 1.44 WHIP when he does battle against the White Sox on Friday.
Sep 1 - 12:25 AM

Indians placed RHP Josh Tomlin on the paternity leave list.

Tomlin will be away from the club for a couple of days as he's awaiting the birth of his child. Zach McAllister was recalled from Triple-A on Sunday to take his place on the active roster.
Aug 31 - 4:18 PM

Indians recalled RHP Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus.

He's likely to function as a long reliever out of the Tribe's bullpen for the remainder of the season. In 14 starts with the Indians this season, he owns a 5.91 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 54/26 K/BB ratio over 67 frames.
Aug 31 - 4:16 PM

Danny Salazar spun five scoreless innings in a 6-1 win over the Royals on Friday.

Salazar allowed just four hits (all singles) and two walks while striking out three batters. He threw 45 out of 73 pitches for strikes before the bullpen took over. The 24-year-old right-hander was a big disappointment for fantasy owners prior to his demotion earlier this season, but he has a 2.84 ERA and 36/11 K/BB ratio in 38 innings over his last seven starts in the majors. He's worth a flier if you are looking for an upside play in fantasy leagues down the stretch.
Aug 30 - 1:11 AM

Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, and a walk in Friday's win over the Royals.

Santana had an RBI single in the third inning and later added a two-run homer in the ninth. The 28-year-old came into Friday's action with just three hits in his last 20 at-bats and a .195 batting average this month. This was his first multi-hit game since August 16, which was also the date of his last home run.
Aug 30 - 1:10 AM

Michael Brantley was 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored Friday against the Royals.

Nice to see from Brantley, who had just five hits over his last 11 games. Despite the recent funk, "Dr. Smooth" still owns an excellent .310/.369/.496 batting line with 18 home runs, 83 RBI, and 16 stolen bases.
Aug 30 - 1:10 AM

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, two runs scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Royals.

Ramirez continues to swing a hot bat since taking over as the starting shortstop following the Asdrubal Cabrera trade. He's now hitting .400 (14-for-35) over his last eight games. The 21-year-old has some speed, but he's still mostly an option in AL-only leagues.
