Here’s to a great week!
White Sox 3, Indians 1
The Tribe’s winning streak ended at nine, with a tough loss Sunday afternoon in Chicago. Josh Tomlin looked great for four innings but a hamstring issue forced him out. With the loss, the Indians are now 57-46 on the year and hold a two game lead over the Royals in the AL Central.
Kipnis went 0-3 in his first rehab game with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers. He’s off today and will return to action Tuesday.
The non-waiver trade deadline is 4 PM today. What will the Tribe do?
It was one year ago that Miller came over from the dark side and what a year it has been. From Paul Hoynes:
A year ago, early in the morning on July 31, word spread that the Indians had acquired left-hander Andrew Miller from the New York Yankees.
It did not seem like a particularly overwhelming need for the Indians at the time. Their bullpen was strong with Zach McAllister, Dan Otero, Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen at the backend. Miller made it better, much better than even the men that engineered the deal could have imagined.
