Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 22 May 2016 at 5:35 pm

The Cleveland Indians have called up 29-year old righty reliever Austin Adams.  Adams has pitched in 14 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Indians this year and he was 2-1 with 4 saves, a 1.10 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP.  He has given up only 11 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 18 batters in his first 16 1/3 innings in AAA ball this year….so he has been outstanding in the minors.  Adams has pitched in 37 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Tribe and he is 2-0 with 1 save, a 4.69 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  The Indians have sent 24-year old lefty reliever Kyle Crockett to AAA to open up a roster spot for Adams.  Crockett has pitched in 11 games (0 starts) for the Tribe so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 14.73 ERA and a 2.46 WHIP.  He has given up 7 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 4 batters in his first 3 2/3 innings for the Indians this year.  He has now pitched in 85 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Indians and he is 4-1 with a 3.51 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.  The demotion of Crockett to AAA leaves the Indians without a left handed reliever.  That will be something to keep an eye on.

26-year old righty starting pitcher Danny Salazar is taking his game to a new level for the Cleveland Indians in 2016.  He has pitched in 8 games (all starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 4-2 with a 1.80 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  Salazar has only given 27 hits so far this year in his first 50 innings pitched while whiffing 61 batters!  His only flaw has been that he has walked 23 batters so far this year, but it hasn’t mattered because no one has been able to hit the ball hard off of him this year.  He has now pitched in 68 games (all starts) in his first four years with the Indians and he is 26-23 with a 3.42 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  The sky is the limit for Salazar, as he has some of the best stuff in all of baseball!

The Cleveland Indians have released 32-year old righty reliever/starter Felipe Paulino so that he could pitch in Japan.  Paulino pitched in 10 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Indians this year and he was 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP.  He has pitched in 97 games (65 starts) in his six years in the show and he is 13-34 with a 5.22 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.  This isn’t much of a loss for the Tribe.

The Cleveland Indians send Tyler Naquin to AAA

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Wednesday 18 May 2016 at 9:09 pm

The Cleveland Indians have sent 25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Tyler Naquin to AAA.  Naquin has played in 27 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 20 for 63 (.317 avg, .751 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 0 homers and 2 RBIs.  He doesn’t have a lot of power as he only has four extra base hits so far this year (2 doubles and 2 triples), but he has a nice batting average.  The amazing part about his batting average so far this year is that he is hitting .317 while only walking 2 times and whiffing 21 times.  He will be the first player called up by the Indians when they need an outfielder, as he has played pretty well for them in his first taste of the show.
