    Jose Ramirez used a special bat to send the Indians to the postseason. The Cleveland Indians officially clinched a playoff berth Tuesday night in one of the most exciting games of the season. The offense put up four runs in the bottom of the 10th inning, capped off by a Jose Ramirez walk-off home run, to take down the Chicago White Sox.

    CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Santana’s two-run homer snapped a tie and José Ramírez homered again as the Cleveland Indians moved closer to clinching a playoff berth — and delayed Chicago’s likely AL Central title — with a 7-4 win over the White Sox on Monday night. The Indians cut their magic number to one and would lock up one of the eight postseason spots if Seattle loses to Houston later Monday. Cleveland also improved to 5-2 this season against the White Sox, who are on the verge of winning their first division crown since 2008. It’s possible the rivals could meet again next week in the playoffs depending on how the final days of the regular season unfold. After the...

    DETROIT (AP) — Carlos Carrasco allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, and Jose Ramirez homered twice to lift the Cleveland Indians to a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. Cleveland took three of four in this series after entering on an eight-game losing streak, and now the Indians are closing in on a postseason berth. Ramirez had two multihomer games in the series — he also hit two Thursday night. Matthew Boyd (2-7) was perfect through four innings for the Tigers, but the Indians scored three runs in the fifth. Then Ramirez added two-run homers in the sixth and seventh to make it 7-0. Miguel Cabrera hit his 484th career home run for Detroit in the eighth....
    DETROIT (AP) — Eric Haase and Daz Cameron hit RBI singles during a four-run eighth inning, and the Detroit Tigers won their first game following manager Ron Gardenhire’s retirement, 5-2 over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night. Gardenhire abruptly stepped down before the game, saying it had been a stressful season for him and that he needed to focus on his health. What looked like another quiet night for Detroit’s bats suddenly changed in the eighth, when the Tigers broke through. With men on first and second and one out, Haase singled up the middle against his former team to tie it at 2. Cameron followed with a sharp base hit to right off Phil Maton (2-3). Victor Reyes brought...
    DETROIT (AP) — Zach Plesac pitched impressively into the eighth inning, and Brad Hand worked out of a jam in the ninth to send the Cleveland Indians to a 1-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

    DETROIT (AP) — Jose Ramirez homered twice on his 28th birthday, Shane Bieber took a shutout into the eighth inning and the Cleveland Indians snapped their eight-game losing streak with a 10-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday night. Bieber (8-1) didn’t allow a run until his final hitter, Willi Castro, hit a three-run homer in the eighth. That cost the Cleveland right-hander the major league ERA lead, but Bieber did become the first eight-game winner of this shortened season. He allowed four hits in 7 2/3 innings. Bieber, a leading candidate for his first AL Cy Young Award, struck out 10 to raise his season total to 112, baseball’s top mark. He walked two. Casey Mize (0-2) allowed...
    The Indians are dealing with a disaster before the postseason. The Cleveland Indians were 26-15 entering play Sept. 8 and the team looked poised to take at least one of the two spots in the division for this year’s expanded postseason. Then came the losing. Some fans look to players like Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez to be the saviors of the offense. But when a key bat like Carlos Santana is batting .202 and slugging .315, the star infielders can only do so much. The same is true when the bottom of the lineup features the likes of Austin Hedges, Oscar Mercado, or anyone else failing to hit .200. Dominant pitching can only take a team so far if...

    CHICAGO (CBS/AP) — Javier Báez’s RBI single in the 10th inning lifted the Chicago Cubs to their fourth straight win, 3-2 over the Cleveland Indians, on Wednesday night in a game that was briefly delayed when a drone entered Wrigley Field and briefly landed on the outfield grass. Automatic runner Ian Happ advanced to third when Kris Bryant greeted Phil Maton (2-2) with a groundball single to open the 10th. After Anthony Rizzo was walked intentionally to load the bases, Maton fanned Willson Contreras and Kyle Schwarber. Then Báez’s liner to left scored Happ and sent the Indians to their eighth straight loss, their longest slide since June 2013. The Cubs won their fourth straight and strengthened their grip on...
    CHICAGO (AP) — Willson Contreras and Cameron Maybin were plunked by consecutive pitches from Cleveland reliever Nick Wittgren in the ninth inning, forcing home the winning run as the Chicago Cubs beat the Indians 6-5 Tuesday night. After Cleveland tied the game at 5 with two runs in the top of the ninth, left-hander Oliver Pérez (1-1) allowed a one-out walk to Kris Bryant in the bottom of the inning.

    Mike Clevinger’s tumultuous season in Cleveland could be over Clevinger and Zach Plesac were banished off of the 40-man roster after they broke COVID-19 quarantine rules, though the latter was recently allowed back into the clubhouse to make a spot start. Cleveland reportedly set a high price tag for Clevinger despite his wrongdoing, as his arsenal of pitches and prowess on the mound makes him on of the more attractive trade targets this season. Clevinger has yet to make an All-Star team, but in his last two seasons he’s registered records of 13-4 and 13-8, with ERAs hovering around 3. He’d be a valuable addition to a Padres rotation featuring some young righties in Chris Paddack and Dinelson Lamet. At...

    The Indians were unable to agree on a contract extension with Francisco Lindor this past spring, casting further doubt on the shortstop’s long-term future in Cleveland. Lindor will be a highly paid arbitration player in 2021 before hitting free agency after next season. He could be gone before then, though, as his team is reportedly open to trading him before the Aug. 31 deadline. Should Lindor leave by the end of the month, he would be the rare player on a Hall of Fame path to get dealt while entering his prime. At 26, he already has the resume some solid MLB players fail to match over their entire careers. Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reported Sunday that Lindor’s name “has...

    The Cleveland Indians don’t want to trade Francisco Lindor this season, but they are open to hearing offers for him before the MLB Trade Deadline. Rumors connecting Francisco Lindor with a move away from the Cleveland Indians continue to gain steam as the MLB Trade Deadline approaches. The franchise clearly doesn’t want to part with its superstar shortstop, but his impending free agency after the 2021 season is becoming a big issue for the club. According to Mark Feinsand, the “possibility exists” that Lindor will be moved before the trade deadline slams shut on Monday. The Indians’ strong preference remains to keep Lindor until the offseason, but the notable update here is that now Cleveland’s front office seems to be...
    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tyler Naquin hit a go-ahead double in the 12th inning, then Yadier Molina made a baserunning blunder and got trapped for the final out Saturday to give the Cleveland Indians a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. A day after getting 20 hits in a rout, the Indians totaled just five in winning their fourth in a row. Naquin doubled off Alex Reyes (1-1) to drive in pinch runner Mike Freeman, who started the inning at second base. That was Cleveland’s only hit after the eighth inning. Molina, who grounded into an inning-ending double play in the 11th with runners on first and second, began the 12th at second base as the automatic runner under...

    CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians may be without manager Terry Francona even longer than expected. Francona has already missed 15 games with a gastrointestinal issue, and Chris Antonetti, the team’s president of baseball operations, disclosed Tuesday that the 61-year-old manager has also been dealing with blood clotting problems. Antonetti said doctors at the Cleveland Clinic inserted a stent last week to help Francona’s blood flow “around what was a clogged filter in his veins.” Francona is currently recovering in his downtown apartment and Antonetti said there is no timetable on when he’ll back. The Indians had ruled him out for at least this three-game series against the Minnesota Twins, but Antonetti indicated it could be some time before the...

    Francisco Lindor is the perfect shortstop to solidify the Yankees infield. Here’s how New York can pry him away from the Indians.  Gleyber Torres is a key part of the Yankees long-term future but it won’t be as the team’s starting shortstop. His shaky defense will force him to move to a different position. That’s why Brian Cashman and his front office should have their sights set on acquiring Francisco Lindor ahead of this year’s Trade Deadline. The Indians don’t want to deal Lindor this season, but the Yankees are not a franchise that typically takes no for an answer when they want to make a deal. The fact that the two sides have already begun discussing trades this month...
