News and Notes: Tribe to monitor Zimmer following head injury

Oh yes, the Indians won their 10th straight game last night

Last night’s game: Cleveland 5, Detroit 2

LGT - indians.com - cleveland.com

Corey Kluber wasn’t at his best, but he still went eight innings, giving up just one run. That previous sentence is hard to type without laughing uncontrollably, but such is the standard that Kluber has set this year. He did throw an astounding 84 of his 114 pitches for strikes (with no walks), so in some way he channeled his inner Josh Tomlin.

The ninth inning was interesting, and Bryan Shaw gave way to Cody Allen to get the 27th out, which is a disappointment given how the game started out. Again, here I go being disappointed over a 5-2 victory (#firstplaceproblems).

Indians to monitor Bradley Zimmer after head injury (mlb.com)

The injury occurred as Zimmer completely sold out on a line drive in the gap. Every time he makes one of these attempts I cringe a little, hoping that he gets up without an injury.

Cleveland Indians’ Danny Salazar scheduled to start Tuesday against White Sox (cleveland.com)

The simulated game apparently went well, for Salazar is jumping back into the rotation. He’ll be on a pitch count, as he hasn’t made a start in a couple weeks.

What should you think about Francisco Mejia? (wfny)

Greg Allen is also included in this rundown.

Clayton Kershaw returned from the DL, and you’ll never guess how he pitched! (spoiler: 6 shutout innings)

The Astros returned home, providing an emotional lift to the people of Houston (and the doubleheader sweep didn’t hurt)

MLB standings, just because.
