  • Tribe acquires Walters from Nats for Asdrubal

    It was unlikely that Asdrubal Cabrera was going to be wearing an Indians uniform again next year. Rather than waiting for the switch-hitting shortstop to leave via free agency, Cleveland dealt him to the Nationals on Thursday. In exchange for Cabrera, the Indians received 24-year-old infield prospect Zach Walters.

  • Pitching fells Tribe in finale vs. Mariners

    In the finale of the season series with Seattle, right-hander Zach McAllister labored in another abbreviated effort for Cleveland. McAllister's missteps heaped too much pressure on the Tribe's bullpen, creating a formula that led to a 6-5 loss to the Mariners at Progressive Field.

  • Tribe won't rush Lindor despite Cabrera trade

    In the immediate, Asdrubal Cabrera's departure gives infielder Jose Ramirez a chance at more playing time, while utility man Mike Aviles is also expected to work himself into the mix at shortstop. In the not-too-distant future, however, the move likely expedites top prospect Francisco Lindor's ascension to the Majors.

  • Walters gives Indians power potential

    Where the Indians lost a well-traveled veteran in dealing Asdrubal Cabrera to the Nationals on Thursday, they gained a versatile, young infielder with intriguing power potential in Zach Walters.

  • Salazar gets call to open weekend series vs. Rangers

    Jerome Williams will get the start in the series opener when the Rangers visit the Indians at Progressive Field on Friday.

Instead, Danny Salazar will make his first career start against Texas.

  • Tribe farmhands follow Kluber's lead

    As Corey Kluber was spinning a three-hit shutout Wednesday against the Mariners at Progressive Field, the Indians' top Minor League affiliates were getting superb pitching of their own. Tyler Cloyd threw a no-hitter at Triple-A Columbus and Double-A Akron shut out Bowie.

  • Tribe adds Ramsey to talented outfield prospect pool

    Leading up to Thursday's non-waiver Trade Deadline, manager Terry Francona emphasized the organization's desire to acquire young, controllable talent. The Tribe did just that on Wednesday when it picked up the outfield prospect James Ramsey from the Cardinals in exchange for right-hander Justin Masterson.

  • Tribe continues to be pleased with young arms

    With Justin Masterson now a member of the Cardinals after Wednesday's trade, the Indians starting rotation has quickly become a whole lot younger.

  • Cards, Indians familiar trade partners

    When it comes to the non-waiver Trade Deadline, most general managers listen to plenty of trade proposals. But when the Cleveland and St. Louis front offices talk, they listen closely. Since 2002, the Cardinals and Indians have pulled off 10 midseason deals, including Wednesday's. They've been big and small -- five coming within a week of the Deadline -- but the two teams clearly enjoy working together on the trade front.
