5/25/2015 | Errors, Marcum's struggles snap streak

5/24/2015 | Bauer's in-game changes to mechanics help in win
In Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Reds, Trevor Bauer's ninth pitch of the afternoon was a changeup. It wasn't your ordinary changeup. No, this one only traveled about 40 feet, barely making it past the infield grass before bouncing off the dirt -- plus catcher Yan Gomes' shoulder -- and trickling towards the Reds dugout. Right away, the mechanical engineer in Bauer knew something was awry. Bauer has dedicated his life to crafting a crisp delivery, and it wasn't so he could throw pitches like that.
5/24/2015 | Hamilton returns as Rangers face Indians
A week and a day after ending a three-game set in Texas, the Rangers come to Cleveland for another three-game series that will conclude their season series.

5/23/2015 | Kluber continues his brilliant stretch of pitching
Like his teammate Carlos Carrasco from the night before, Indians starter Corey Kluber didn't have his best stuff in the early goings of his Saturday start. And, like his teammate, Kluber showed that even when he's not at his best, he's better than most.
5/23/2015 | Indians come up with clutch hits on Saturday
Baseball is a game that, more often than not, abides by the law of averages. It's also a game of streaks. But in the end, those streaks tend to even themselves out. In Saturday's 2-1 victory over Cincinnati, the Indians experienced some regression to the mean, in a good way.
5/23/2015 | Indians trying to give players regular rest
Indians All-Star left fielder Michael Brantley received a day off Saturday, a regularly-scheduled day of rest. Brantley has dealt with lower back soreness off-and-on throughout the season, and didn't play the field in Friday's game. But the day of rest is as much a part of a larger initiative by the Indians to keep their players fresh as it is about Brantley's health, specifically.
5/23/2015 | Bauer designs T-shirt for charity
Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer teamed up with Kyle Mauch, CEO of a company called Athletes Brand, to help design T-shirts for a good cause.

5/22/2015 | Fastball command doesn't hold Carrasco back
In Friday night's 7-3 victory over Cincinnati, 16 of the first 31 fastballs Carlos Carrasco threw went for balls. He didn't have it. After two innings, Carrasco had already ran his pitch count up to 44. It looked like it would be a short outing. Carrasco didn't know where the pitch he leans on the most was going, and, typically, that's a recipe for disaster. He earned the win, striking out seven over six strong innings, allowing just two earned runs on four hits and two walks.
5/22/2015 | Moss shows why Indians wanted his power
Friday night's 7-3 win against Cincinnati showed why Moss doesn't care about the strikeouts. Why the Indians don't care about the strikeouts. And how Moss has always been able to produce at a well-above league average rate, despite all the strikeouts. Moss put it best: When the balls are put in play, they're not missed.
5/22/2015 | Future of catchers Perez, Hayes undecided
When Yan Gomes returns, the Indians "definitely" won't make him catch on consecutive days, at least for the first week. That's what is known, with regards to Gomes' status. What is less known is the status of the backup catcher position, and the futures of the young Roberto Perez and veteran Brett Hayes.

5/20/2015 | Bauer ensures slim lead enough in big win
