The Indians won yesterday, but the best news was that Mike Clevinger is coming along way ahead of schedule in his return from injury.

Throwing baseballs from 60 feet is a massive step from somebody who wasn’t allowed to “pick up a baseball” until months from now.

• Yu Chang is injured again.

• The Indians have opened a baseball academy in the Dominican.

Around baseball

• Former Indian CC Sabathia reached 3000 strikeouts last night.

• Yasiel Puig did this.

• Kyle Freeland can really run.

• Addison Russell is heading to AAA.

• This appears to be interesting, but also appears to be paywalled.

• The Brewers DFA’d Alex Wilson, who really struggled with them after not making the Indians roster out of ST.
