29-year old lefty swinging 2B Jason Kipnis is raking at the plate right now for the Cleveland Indians.  He has played in 46 games since June 1st and he is 56 of 181 (.309 avg) with 30 runs scored, 9 homers, 24 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  Kipnis has now played in 95 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 109 of 381 (.286 avg, .832 OPS) with 57 runs scored, 16 homers, 52 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.  Kipnis is currently third on the Tribe in runs scored, homers and RBIs.  The Indians hope that Kipnis keeps raking at the plate, as he has been a force this year with a bat in his hands.

The Cleveland Indians have released 26-year old righty swinging outfielder Bryson Myles.  Myles played in 69 games in AA+AAA-ball for the Indians this year and he was 48 of 208 (.231 avg, .723 OPS) with 27 runs scored, 7 homers, 25 RBIs and 10 stolen bases.  He has now played in 504 games in his first six years in the minors and he is 496 of 1,791 (.277 avg, .770 OPS) with 255 runs scored, 36 homers, 241 RBIs and 105 stolen bases.  The Indians are loaded in the minors with outfielders, so they shouldn’t miss Myles moving forward.

Righty reliever Ray Narleski was a solid pitcher for the Cleveland Indians a long, long time ago.  Narleski pitched in 224 games (42 starts) in his five years with the Indians and he was 39-21 with 53 saves, a 3.22 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.  He gave up 501 hits and 276 walks while whiffing 383 batters in 597 2/3 innings for the Tribe.  He was an All-Star in 1956 and 1958 for the Cleveland Indians.  But, I think his best overall year was in 1955 for the Tribe.  He pitched in 60 games (1 start) for the Indians in 1955 and he was 9-1 with 19 saves, a 3.71 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP.  He gave up 91 hits and 52 walks while whiffing 94 batters in his 111 2/3 innings in 1955.  Narleski led the Majors in both games pitched (60) and saves (19) in 1955.  Narleski also pitched in 2 games (0 starts) in the playoffs for the Indians and he was 0-0 with a 2.25 ERA and a 0.50 WHIP.  Narleski is still #7 in Indians’ history with his 53 saves!  He is also tied for #25 in ERA (3.22), #37 in WHIP (1.30) and he is tied for #37 in games pitched (224) in Tribe history!
