Corey Kluber strikes out 12, but Cleveland Indians lose to White Sox, 2-1, in 10 innings | cleveland.com
Even another superb night from Corey Kluber couldn't save the Tribe from another defeat, as the bats yet again failed to offer him any real run support. Carlos Santana was a late scratch, missing his second game in a row due to back spasms.
Indians news & notes
Bruce Chen has finally called it a career after being DFA by the Indians after two poor starts.
As the No.8 reliever, Adams became disposable after Carrasco's complete game on Sunday night, since in any case he would have been sent down to make room for Shaun Marcum tomorrow.
Arguably, Murphy's recent good form is making him more tradeable rather than less, as the Tribe might seek to cash in/cash out as soon as the season is well and truly dead and buried.
