Indians news & notes: Indians and Angels tie behind strong Trevor Bauer outing

New, comments

Would assume this removes any remaining doubt that Trevor will be in the rotation.

Trev got a lot of help Tuesday, getting to pitch with this wall behind him.

The Indians and Angels tied yesterday. Trevor Bauer started for the tribe and pitched very well. Over 6 shutout innings, Trevor struck out 7 and walked none. Jarrett Grube gave up the lone Angels run, his first allowed of the spring—but it was unearned due to an error by somebody named Sayles. Perhaps the ball sayle-d over his head. The lone Indians run off of Garrett Richards came via Jose Ramirez—who else? It was his 13th RBi of the spring.

Video of Bauer is embedded below, but Tito is being annoying, refusing to definitely put Trevor in the rotation.

But wait! The Indians also won yesterday! Josh Tomlin also pitched well. Here are the combined numbers for Tomlin and Bauer. #SixManRotation

Indians Notes

Um. Crap. Did I just cover everything?

Well, kinda. Here's Jordan Bastian on the Tomlin-Bauer-Anderson competition. Personally, I want Bauer in the rotation all season and Tomlin in the bullpen for the first week-to-10-days until the too-frequent off days subside.

Bastian also wrote about Yan Gomes, who then went on to hit a home run in the Tribe's 2nd game of Tuesday. I love Yan Gomes so much.

Around Baseball

• First, well, this:

It's a matter of months until Bill Belichick gets blamed every time a team has technical issues with theirs.

• A trade! The Tigers sent Bryan Holaday to Texas for Myles Jaye and Bobby Wilson. Holaday had a .745 OPS for Detroit last season and was OPSing 1.423 this spring.

• The Blue Jays extension talks with Edwin Encarnacion are not going well and might be over with. #FIRESHAPRIOOOO

• Felix Doubront beat out Jesse Hahn for a spot in Oakland's rotation.
