Here’s to a great week!
Indians 8, Orioles 0
Mike Clevinger threw six shutout innings to earn his ninth win, while Melky Cabrera hit a grand slam for the Tribe. The Indians are now 71-52 on the year (keeps looking better!).
Great news here. From Jordan Bastian:
Chris Antonetti, the team’s president of baseball operations, announced prior to Sunday’s game against the Orioles that Martin is being released from Cleveland Clinic and recovering well, but there remains no timetable for his return. The Indians’ top priority is helping him get back to full strength before potentially constructing a rehab program.
“It’s beyond a relief, especially given where things were a week ago,” Antonetti said. “I think it’s important to remember we don’t know. We’re in uncharted waters. There’s no precedent you can look back to and say, ‘What does a return to activity look like?’ It’s very much going to continue to be day to day.”
Allen is riding a career-high 12-game hit streak.
