Recent history is poor for teams buying injured starting pitchers

It should come as a surprise to no baseball fan that the Indians went shopping for a bargain in free agency this winter, but it was at least mildly shocking that they came up with Gavin Floyd. Floyd has missed most of the past two seasons with injuries (Tommy John surgery in 2013 and an elbow fracture in 2014), and the Indians are pretty well stocked with starting pitching. There...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Breakout: Carlos Carrasco

Source: Al Bello/Getty Images North America In the coming weeks, and in advance of me releasing my positional rankings, I’m going to be highlighting some breakout performers from last season. The first is one of my favorites, Carlos Carrasco. His early season work as a starting pitcher “earned” him a demotion to the bullpen, but as the article title would suggest, that wasn’t...

Remembering Jesus This Holiday Season

A long time favorite of, Jesus Aguilar has been on the Indians radar since he knocked in 81 runs in 2011 between Kinston and Lake County.

Indians Christmas Wish List

Christmas came a little early for Tribe fans as they pulled off what most are viewing as an excellent trade for Brandon Moss on the first day of the Winter Meetings. As Joe broke down here, Moss provides the type of power the Indians have so dearly been missing these past few years. The signing of Gavin Floyd also gives the starting rotation a quality veteran arm, adding to the rotation’s...

Cleveland Indians create depth with Gavin Floyd signing

On the day the White Sox announced Jeff Samardzija, the Indians stole a little of that thunder away by grabbing up former Chicago starting pitcher Gavin Floyd. Signing a starting pitcher had been a top priority of the Indians in this off-season, despite the rotation being the team’s greatest strength in 2014. In addition, by adding Floyd the Indians have essentially cemented their...

Stories aren’t boringly consistent and, excepting Herman Mehlville, they don’t last for six months. There are a few ways to explain to you how maddeningly consistent Brantley was in 2014.

Cleveland Indians: What the Brandon Moss trade means

With the acquisition of 1B/OF Brandon Moss on Tuesday, the Indians added another power bat to their lineup.  Moss, whom went through hip surgery in October, should provide a much-needed boost to an Indians team that finished ninth in the AL in home runs this past season. It will be interesting to see where Moss fits in the roster with his versatility.  Moss spent time in left field...
