Latest News

  • As noted in verse earlier today, the Indians have added Matt Albers back to the active roster and Designated Fernando Nieve for Assignment:

The Indians continue to have an eight-man bullpen, though I think that's going to end when Lou Marson is activated in a couple of days. With Ryan Raburn used more an outfielder now that Michael Bourn is on the DL, Gomes can play first and third until Bourn is ready to come off the DL at the end of the month.

  • The diagnosis for Brett Myers' right elbow is tendonitis/mild UCL strain. He won't throw for two weeks, meaning at minimum he's out for a month if you consider that he'll need a couple rehab starts. And that's assuming the rest does the trick.

Latest 25-Man/40-Man Roster


Tonight's Lineups:

Cleveland Chicago (AL)
CF Michael Brantley
LF Alejandro de Aza
2B Jason Kipnis
2B Jeff Keppinger
SS Asdrubal Cabrera
RF Alex Rios
RF Nick Swisher DH Adam Dunn
DH Jason Giambi
1B Paul Konerko
C Carlos Santana
3B Connor Gillaspie
1B Mark Reynolds
SS Alexei Ramirez
3B Lonnie Chisenhall
C Hector Gimenez
CF Drew Stubbs
CF Jordan Danks

Asdrubal Cabrera only needed one full out of the lineup, as he's back in there tonight. Jordan Danks is in the lineup because Dayan Viciedo is on the Disabled List; otherwise, it's a similar lineup to the one the Indians faced last week.
