To put things dryly, Tyler Naquin and Logan Allen replaced Mike Clevinger and Zach Plesac on the 28-man roster yesterday.
Obviously, there are reasons for this, and some Indians spoke out on them:
Appreciating Jason Kipnis
• The Indians played this video tribute for him
• It was a big hit among those in the ballpark
• Shane Bieber leads baseball in 1-2-3 innings. But only because “pitchers facing the Indians” isn’t a qualified player.
• WFNY discusses the Tribe
• The Yankees had no choice but to free Clint Frazier
• Alex Cintron and Ramon Laureano were handed suspensions
• Daniel Bard has been pitching very well in his return to baseball, and tonight got his first save since 2011
• His teammate Charlie Blackmon is chasing .400
• As we near a time when the Cardinals may have to forfeit some games, here’s Castrovince on the most recent MLB forfeit
• Rob Manfred thinks things are going well
