Here’s to a great week!
Tigers 4, Indians 1
Carlos Carrasco was good, but not great. He certainly wasn’t amazing enough to make up for the struggling Tribe offense. With the loss, the Indians fall to 5-7 on the year. It’s early, but yeah.
Gomes is still struggling. A lot. It’s painful to watch. Will he lose more time to Roberto Perez? Could he get sent to Triple-A Columbus? Here’s hoping he turns it around.
Tomlin has a plan to fix his early season mistakes. Here’s hoping part deux. From Jordan Bastian:
During their work on Friday and Saturday, Callaway and Tomlin compared the right-hander’s current release point to where he was at the end of last season. It was something they kept an eye on a lot down the stretch last year, because Tomlin’s production went haywire in August.
Through September and into the postseason, he got back on track. A lot of that had to do with tightening up his release point, via some mechanical tweaks. As Callaway likes to put it, Tomlin got away from driving the ball through the zone and letting the natural movement take over in August.
Here’s hop . . . you get the idea.
