22-year old switch-hitting SS Tyler Krieger is off to a good start to his career with the Cleveland Indians.  When the Indians took Krieger in the 4th round of the 2015 Amateur Draft, they knew that he was recovering from labrum surgery.  They didn’t let him play in 2015, deciding instead to let him get fully healthy before his debut.  Krieger has played in 25 games in low A-Ball for the Indians so far this year and he is 35 of 93 (.376 avg, .921 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 0 homers, 12 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  With Francisco Lindor locked in at SS for the Tribe, Krieger might have to change positions before he gets to Cleveland.  He was the Indians’ #20 prospect heading into this season according to Baseball America.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 5 May 2016 at 4:30 pm

31-year old righty starting pitcher Josh Tomlin has been amazing for the Cleveland Indians in 2016.  He does not throw hard, but he knows how to pitch.  He throws a lot of strikes, which makes up for the fact that he gives up a lot of homers.  Tomlin has started 4 games for the Tribe so far this year and he is 4-0 with a 3.13 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.  He has given up 23 hits (3 homers) and 2 walks while whiffing 16 batters in his first 23 innings for the Indians this year.  Tomlin has now pitched in 14 games (all starts) in his last two years with the Indians and he is 11-2 with a 3.05 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP.  Tomlin has now pitched in 99 games (84 starts) in his first 7 years with the Indians and he is 40-30 with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.  The Indians hope that Tomlin can keep up the good work.

The Cleveland Indians have designated 31-year old righty swinging catcher Adam Moore for assignment.  Moore didn’t play in any games for the Indians this year.  He played in 1 game for the Tribe in 2015 and he was 1 for 4 (.250 avg, .500 OPS) with 1 RBI.  Moore has now played in 87 games in his first seven years in the show and he is 54 of 269 (.201 avg, .550 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 6 homers, 21 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  This is not much of a loss for the Indians, as they have traded for Chris Gimenez and they have signed Luke Carlin as of late.

The Cleveland Indians have acquired 33-year old righty swinging C/1B Chris Gimenez from the Texas Rangers for cash considerations.  Gimenez played in 36 games for the Rangers last year and he was 25 of 98 (.255 avg, .820 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 5 homers, 14 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  The Indians better hope that he’s better for them this time around.  He has played in 81 games in his first three years with the Indians and he is only 27 of 178 (.152 avg, .517 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 4 homers, 15 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Gimenez has now played in 221 games in his first seven years in the show and he is 119 of 545 (.218 avg, .639 OPS) with 66 runs scored, 11 homers, 55 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Gimenez will be the Indians’ new backup catcher until Roberto Perez returns to action.

19-year old lefty swinging 1B Bobby Bradley came into this season as the Cleveland Indians‘ #5 prospect and he’s showing why so far this year in A-ball.  Bradley has played in 22 games in A-ball this year for the Indians and he is 22 of 87 (.253 avg, .869 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 6 homers and 23 RBIs.  But, he has also whiffed 36 times so far this year, so he has a few holes in his swing.  Bradley has now played in 171 games in his first three years in the minors for the Indians and he is 186 of 651 (.286 avg, .922 OPS) with 116 runs scored, 41 homers, 165 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.
