Salazar could provide Indians big boost in stretch run
Right-hander Danny Salazar put himself on the map after his dominant big-league debut against the Toronto Blue Jays back on July 11. But as the Major League playoffs loom and the Cleveland Indians in need of some extra help in their bullpen, the 23-year-old could soon be called upon to fill a role unfamiliar to him. The IBI's Ethan Day recently sat down and talked to the fast rising Indians prospect....

Second Thoughts Game #107: White Sox 5, Indians 6
With the trade deadline now in the rearview mirror the Indians pulled out another dramatic come from behind win over the White Sox by a score of 6-5 on Wednesday night.

Indians net another walk-off victory, defeat Chicago 6-5 in extras
Resilience is defined as the ability to recover or adjust easily to misfortune or change. It wasn’t easy, but the Indians sure keep playing like it. Carlos Santana took a 3-2 pitch from ChiSox reliever Dylan Axelrod over the right field wall for the game-winning homer, sending Cleveland to their seventh-straight victory. Join Jim Berdysz as he recaps the action from Wednesday night.

A three year Indians review: Designated Hitter
The next position to tackle in this series is that of designated hitter. This position has been surprisingly ineffective for the Indians over the past few years thanks to a mix of injuries and just plain lack of production. The major difference for this position is that we can look at it purely through the offensive prism as defense just doesn't matter, and the IBI's Jeff Ellis breaks it down to determine whether the Indians have improved or gotten worse at the position this season.

Second Thoughts Game #106: White Sox 4, Indians 7
As this team has shown time and time again this season, there is no opponent or deficit they don’t believe they can overcome. They’ve had their ups and downs throughout the year, but they’ve never given up on themselves. That trend continued as Ryan Raburn and Yan Gomes delivered key knocks late in Tuesday night's game for the Tribe's sixth straight win. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps an Indians 7-4 comeback win.

Pestano to be optioned to Columbus for Rzepczynski
The Indians made a surprising move on Tuesday night optioning out right-handed pitcher Vinnie Pestano to Triple-A Columbus to make room on the 25-man roster for newly acquired left-handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski. Tony gives a quick recap of the move and makes sense of it.

Indians acquire Mark Rzepczynski from the St. Louis Cardinals
The Cleveland Indians completed a deal with the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday afternoon. While the Indians had been rumored to be talking to the Cardinals for the past few months, this certainly wasn't the deal that folks were pondering. Instead of dealing away Asdrubal Cabrera for a potential starter, they dealt a low-level minor leaguer for a left-handed reliever.

A three year Indians review: Catcher
In his fifth part of this series, the IBI's Jeff Ellis takes a look at the Indians catching position over the past three years and shows how productive the position has been for them and how it has significantly improved this season. He also sheds light on what a crazy talent Carlos Santana has become and how he is no doubt a top five player at his position.

Second Thoughts Game #105: White Sox 2, Indians 3
After a quality sweep of the Rangers, the Indians welcomed a down and selling White Sox team to town for a four-game set. The run of quality starting pitching continued, but the visiting team pitched just as well, resulting in a grind-out battle all the way. Tied late, a record-setting walk-off home run sent the Indians to their fifth straight win. The IBI's Kevin Dean shares his second thoughts on a thrilling late inning win for the Indians...

A three year Indians review: Third Base
In his fourth part in this series, the IBI's Jeff Ellis delves into third base to finish off the infield and looks at whether the Indians have improved at the position this season. This is a position that has been in flux since Casey Blake was traded in July of 2008 as the Indians have tired vets like Jack Hannahan and top prospects like Andy Marte and Lonnie Chisenhall, but have struggled to find consistency and a long term solution.

Notes From the Wigwam: Tribe caps strong week with sweep
The Cleveland Indians had a successful week as they are currently on a four-game win streak and coming of a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers. Despite the strong performance, the Tribe was unable to gain ground on the Tigers as Detroit also had a strong week and went 6-1. Nonetheless, the Tribe now has momentum again that they'll look to carry into this week. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he recaps the week that was in his weekly notebook, Notes From the Wigwam.
