Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 1-20-2015

Pittsburgh Press, January 20, 1915:

The Cleveland Naps are to be called Indians hereafter. Unless all signs fail, the Indians are in for a scalping next summer.

Washington Herald, January 20, 1915:

Possibly the owners of the Cleveland club, by changing the name of the Sixth City club from “Naps” to “Indians” had in mind the Boston Braves.

This makes so much more sense than the strained explanation about honoring Louis Sockalexis.

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 1-15-2015

Pittsburgh Press, January 15, 1915:

Cleveland sporting writers gathered with officials of the local American league club to decide on a new name for the Naps. The sale of “Nap” Lajoie to the Athletics necessitates the move. Suggested names are: “Colts,” “Black Sox,” “Bucks,” “Hustlers,” and “Grays.”

All of the above would have been fine by me. One wonders what the Black Sox scandal would have been called if that name had already been taken.

Countdown of the best 25 GMs - #23

For the 32 seasons before John Hart was promoted to general manager in September 1991, the Cleveland Indians never finished closer than 11 games from first in a full season.  And they certainly didn’t appear to be making progress; in 1991 the team lost 105 games, finished last in the league in runs and ninth in runs allowed, and drew the fewest fans in the league for the third year in row.  Hart had his work cut out for him.

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 1-6-2015

Milwaukee Journal, January 6, 1915:

Larry Lajoie no longer is a member of the Cleveland Naps. The veteran second baseman, with a record of thirteen years’ service under President Charles W. Somers, was released yesterday to the Philadelphia Athletics. Connie Mack came [to Cleveland] from Philadelphia and closed the deal—which does not involve any other players, according to Mr. Somers.

And thus ended the era of the “Cleveland Naps” nickname in the Forest City.

Asdrubal Cabrera to join Rays

Its a shame about the Rays.

The Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to a one-year deal with infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, a source told ESPN’s Buster Olney, confirming multiple reports….

The shortstop played second base for the Washington Nationals at the end of last season after he was acquired in a trade deadline deal from the Cleveland Indians.

A two-time All-Star, Cabrera batted .229 with five home runs and 21 RBIs for the Nationals in 49 games after the trade. In total, between both teams, he finished last season batting .241 with 14 homers and 61 RBIs.

Bastian: Mind Over Matter: Bauer Goes High Tech in Offseason Regimen

Bauer detailed one of the setups that he uses in the offseason. He will have a camera in each batter’s box mounted at eye level, so he can see the hitter’s perspective. Bauer also has a camera mounted from the center-field view in order to track the flight of the ball. He then films his pitches at 240 or 480 frames per second, and he can overlay the pitches on video to see variances in the movement.

“So, then I can tailor-fit what pitches I throw and where to make them all appear the same, make my delivery appear the same, things like that.”

The guy throws 96 with a devastating 12/6. If he can execute, the sky is still the limit.

Indians sign Gavin Floyd to deal

Right-hander Gavin Floyd has agreed to a $4 million, one-year contract with the Cleveland Indians, giving him a chance to make a comeback from his latest elbow surgery.

The deal, announced Tuesday, allows him to earn an additional $6 million in performance bonuses.

The 31-year-old broke a bone in his elbow while throwing a curveball with Atlanta last June. He had surgery and couldn’t resume throwing until after the season. That injury occurred during his ninth start since returning from Tommy John elbow-ligament replacement surgery.

Ten quick hits from Cleveland Indians GM Chris Antonetti on Brandon Moss, etc | cleveland.com

7. Fans wanted the Indians to add a right-handed hitter, but Moss bats left-handed. Antonetti loves left-handed hitters because he feels they better fit Progressive Field’s dimensions.

The power stats over the last three years offer convincing evidence of those beliefs.

“Also, 70 percent of the pitching (in the big leagues) is right-handed,” said Antonetti. “The thing we continually focus on is how we score more runs and prevent runs. That’s the equation we’re focused on.

“We felt Brandon significantly impacts our ability to score runs. So the acquisition made sense in that light.”

Indians Acquire Brandon Moss

In a widely anticipated swap, the Athletics have officially agreed to ship outfielder/first baseman/DH Brandon Moss to the Indians in exchange for minor league second baseman Joe Wendle.

Moss, 31, is projected by MLBTR/Matt Swartz to earn $7.1MM this year, his second-to-last of arbitration eligibility. He is an accomplished power bat, with a 135 OPS+ and 76 home runs over the last three years…

Wendle, a 24-year-old prospect, did not rate among the Indians’ top ten prospects in the recent estimation of Baseball America but did land at ninth on MLB.com‘s most recent list Wendle’s calling card is his hit tool, with which he combines decent power and solid defense. A broken hamate bone cut the 24-year-old’s season short, but he had put up a .253/.311/.414 line over 370 Double-A plate appearances and owned even an even more robust slash the prior year at High-A.

A’s discusssing minor leaguer for Brandon Moss - Oakland Athletics : The Drumbeat

The A’s are in discussions that could net them a minor-league infielder from the Indians in exchange for outfielder Brandon Moss. Among the A’s targets, according to big league sources, is Double-A second baseman Joe Wendle, a strong prospect whose 2014 season was shortened by a broken hamate bone.

Recap: Survivor: “Actions vs. Accusations”

Anyway, he’s still in good shape.

“It was well played,” John Rocker says, walking down the steps with the Idol in his pocket. “I enjoyed myself and was happy to have the opportunity,” John says…

I just can’t see voting John Rocker out at this stage in the season, other than to avoid awkward moments at mixed tribe social events. If you go along with John, he’s always a bigger target than you are, no matter who you happen to be. He’s always the person who will be viewed as the bigger threat or the bigger cancer. And maybe in the short-term he catches you a few fish and keeps you close in a couple challenges. But in the long-term, he’s a guy who couldn’t win a Jury vote if he went to 100 different “Survivor” Juries composed of 100 different Juries of his peers. He wouldn’t even win a “Survivor” Jury composed of nine Braves fans who only watched the 1999 season. Nobody would ever give John Rocker a million bucks and if he’s competing hard in challenges and helping at camp and your tribe sucks anyway? There’s no way they get stronger by voting John Rocker out…

That was my passionate defense of John Rocker in this situation. And I mostly believe it! You know what I also believe? That Sports Illustrated article came out in 1999. If, in 15 years, John Rocker hasn’t found a way to not fight back when people come after him about it? He can’t expect to play a game like “Survivor.” And if, 15 years later, he hasn’t realized that there’s a target on his back everything he does and he has to be thrice as polite and pacified as those around him? There’s nothing to be said. From the sexist grumbling after losing to his girlfriend to the inability to recognize the line between competitiveness and hostility, John Rocker couldn’t possibly have made it easier for everybody to take the assumptions they already had about him and transfer those assumptions to game strategy against him. He basically said, “You heard I was a monster… Well… I’ll be a jerk and that’ll confirm for you that I’m a monster.” That’s all under his control. Or it has to be under control if he was going to have any chance on “Survivor.” Jeff Kent was frequently reported to be one of the worst teammates in baseball, but he was mostly able to be an understated, mediocre “Survivor” player. John Rocker didn’t see any point in trying to be understated and so he became who the other players thought he was.

Corey Kluber strikes out 14 in second straight start

Corey Kluber and the Indians did what they had to do Sunday at Target Field.

Kluber struck out 14 for the second consecutive game and the reborn offense recorded 14 hits in a 7-2 victory over the Twins. The Indians, who entered Sunday trailing Kansas City for the second AL wild-card spot by 3½ games, return home for the final seven games of the season.

The final homestand starts with a four-game series against the Royals.

Gammons: Looking ahead at the Indians’ Big Four power arms

“Danny Baseball”? Nah, never mind.

as [Indians manager Terry] Francona., his coaches and special aides de camp like Jason Giambi have built a unique culture, so, too, they have put together what looking forward is arguably the biggest power rotation in the American League. When Danny Salazar shut out the Tigers Wednesday night, averaging more than 96.7, hitting 99.4, running his scoreless streak to 17 innings, it culminated a 22 game skein in which the Cleveland starters threw 131 1/3 innings, allowed 107 hits, posted a 2.12 earned run average, walked 36 and struck out 141…

No one in The Big Four is over 28 years old… [Corey] Kluber developed his mix of fastball command, cutters and creativity through the minor leagues. Salazar seemed headed towards front end stardom last season, then got off to such a bad start that he ended back in Columbus… [Trevor] Bauer, who has definite ideas on how he wants to pitch, has made tremendous strides in morphing some of his ideas to those the manager and staff believe necessary… [Carlos] Carrasco was [on] a bumpy shuttle from Cleveland to triple-A, starting to the bullpen and back… In his five starts since going back into the rotation, he has thrown his 97-99 [mph] from the outset, and the result has been 33 IP with 21 hits, 3 earned runs and an eye-popping 34-4 strikeout-walk ratio…

come March, there will be expectations for the Indians, largely because of that collaborative effort that is developing a pitching staff whose power arms should not only keep them in the 2015 AL Central race, but if they get to the post-season should play in October.

The New York Daily News will no longer print images of Chief Wahoo

There is a move afoot for newspapers and other news organizations to refer to the Washington Redskins as “Washington,” or to otherwise avoid using the name of the team which many people consider to be epithet. Now at least one newspaper is extending that practice to racist imagery as well. The New York Daily News:

  Yesterday, the News published this great editorial about the Washington team name. Today, we can also tell you that the paper will no longer use the Cleveland Indians’ logo, Chief Wahoo.

  Another obvious and positive development, and one that won’t prevent us from continuing to call on the team and others in media to do the same. In reporting on this issue in the recent past, it became clear to me that Native American groups consider Chief Wahoo offensive, which is enough for the rest of us to deem it inappropriate.

Heavy rain forces suspension of Royals-Indians game, which will resume Sept. 22 in Cleveland

less pressure on the Royals to perform.

The wind punished the flags hanging high above the outfield walls. A hail of plastic bags and paper napkins whipped through the sky. During a rain delay that postponed what would have been a crushing Royals loss, a sudden storm dispersed the remnants of a capacity crowd and provided imagery that was cruel but fitting.

The game will resume on Sept. 22 with the Royals trailing 4-2 in the bottom of the 10th inning to the Cleveland Indians. The game will be played at Progressive Field in Cleveland, hours before the start of a three-game series there. The ending on Sunday marked an anticlimactic finish to a deflating night at Kauffman Stadium.

“It’s not over yet,” manager Ned Yost said. “We’ve still got half an inning to play.”

Indeed, but the moment was lost. The energy seeped from the ballpark in stages. As the Royals staggered toward their fourth consecutive loss of a similar vintage, the early optimistic vibes faded into desperation. The crowd appeared exultant when Alex Gordon’s ninth-inning homer tied the game. Yet they departed this park merely disconsolate and soggy, even if the final result is still in doubt.

Indians Sign Russell Branyan

Outman out, Strikeoutman in!

The Indians announced (Twitter link) that they have signed veteran corner infielder Russell Branyan to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Columbus.

The former big league slugger has spent the 2014 season with los Toros de Tijuana of the Mexican League and has slashed a robust .296/.423/.620 with 19 home runs in 272 plate appearances. However, he hasn’t been in affiliated ball since 2012 and last saw the Majors in 2011… Branyan, now 38 years of age, has seen the Majors in parts of 14 different seasons between the Indians, Brewers, Padres, Mariners, Diamondbacks, Rays, Phillies, Cardinals and Angels. He’s a lifetime .232/.329/.485 hitter with 194 homers, including a career-high 31 back in 2009 with Seattle.

FG: Joe Maddon’s Bunting Identity Crisis

I also thought the graph of “league wide WPA on sac bunts” was extremely interesting.

Since he began leading the Rays in 2006, Joe Maddon has been known as one of the more progressive MLB managers… He’s even spoke out publicly against sac bunting in the past… [yet] The Tampa Bay Rays have attempted 58 non-pitcher sacrifice bunts this season, by far the highest mark in the major leagues. No other team has even 50… Just 35 of those 58 attempts have turned into “successful” sacrifice bunts… 35-of-58 yields a 60% success rate. That’s bad. The league average success rate for a sacrifice bunt is 71%. Only five teams have lower success rates on bunts than the Rays this year…

the Rays, despite having attempted more sac bunts than anyone, have not executed more sac bunts than anyone. Instead, that title goes to Terry Francona’s Indians, with a league-leading 38 successful sacrifice bunts. The Indians, like the Rays, are known as one of the most progressive organizations in baseball and Francona has a reputation as a progressive manager from his time with the Theo Epstein-led Red Sox who didn’t bunt at all…  both the Indians (104 wRC+) and Rays (102 wRC+) have top-1o offenses in baseball this season… The Indians have at least bunted well, which is more than the Rays can say, with an 82% success rate that is topped only by the Rangers’ 86%...

To be honest, I really can’t think of a good explanation as to why Maddon and Francona have fallen in love with the sacrifice bunt this year. Both have proven to be anti-bunt in the past and have strong lineups, yet rely on the bunt more than any other manager in baseball seemingly to a fault.

Just for fun, since we’re talking about the Rays and the Indians, what do the bunting habits of the Moneyball A’s look like? Fewest in the league, with just 12. Part of that is due in part to their league-worst 44% success rate, but they’ve also attempted just 24, the sixth-fewest in the MLB.

Nick Swisher undergoes surgery, is out for the year

Brohio might still be okay with it.

The Indians have announced that Nick Swisher is undergoing surgery on his knees today…

This season has been a disaster for Swisher, as he’s hitting just .208/.278/.331 in 401 plate appearances, with only 8 home runs, after hitting 20+ in nine consecutive seasons. That .208 batting average is second worst in the American League among qualified hitters, as is his .608 OPS. Factoring in his terrible defense this season, and Swisher has a case as the worst player in MLB this season, among starters.

Swisher is owed another $30 million over the next two seasons, and at this moment, I have a hard time seeing that work out well for the Tribe.

Corey Kluber has rain to thank for rise to game’s elite

I bless the rain down in… Columbus???

Rain showers had washed away Triple-A Columbus’ pregame plan, and Corey Kluber retreated to the confines of a cage to complete his workout. With rain falling and nothing but time on his hands, the pitcher decided to have some fun with the mound session.

Kluber fired his customary four-seam fastball, but he then started working in a two-seam sinker every few pitches. Ruben Niebla, who was Columbus’ pitching coach during that 2011 season, liked what he saw and told the right-hander to finish the workout with nothing but sinkers… What the Indians could not have known on that rainy afternoon three years ago was the turning point in Kluber’s career had quietly arrived…

Heading into Monday’s off-day for the Tribe, Kluber was 13-6 with a 2.46 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP through 25 starts this season… “He’s getting an air about him like a Nolan Ryan or a Roger Clemens,” pitching coach Mickey Callaway said…

Callaway says the two-seamer has increased the effectiveness of Kluber’s two main offspeed offerings… Entering Monday’s action, Fangraphs.com gave Kluber’s cutter a 12.2 rating, which was the second-best cut fastball in baseball behind Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright (16.9)... hitters have posted a .072 (11-for-153) average in at-bats ending with Kluber’s curveball, which has Fangraph’s highest rating (17.7) in the Majors for that particular pitch…

And what if it had not rained on that afternoon three years ago?

“I guess we’ll never know,” Kluber said with a smile.

Sullivan: Going inside Michael Brantley’s dramatic, MVP-like improvement

On the other hand, Matt LaPorta is opening up a pizza place, so I think the Brewers are ok with it.

Used to be, in terms of performance, [Michael] Brantley was consistently, exactly average. Now, take a trip through the Wins Above Replacement leaderboard. You see Mike Trout at the top, naturally. Then there’s Alex Gordon, and Josh Donaldson, a previous breakthrough. Hanging out with the likes of Giancarlo Stanton is Brantley, who this year has become a fringe MVP candidate…

Brantley is pulling the ball more, especially against fastballs… By and large, against non-fastballs, Brantley hasn’t been that different. He’s been better, but only slightly… he’s looking for a fastball to drive, and he’s willing to swing at the fastball hard… Brantley’s seeing fewer fastballs than ever, and he’s seeing fewer strikes than ever, because now he’s more often punishing fastballs and punishing strikes. This is what happens when players adjust in the major leagues—the major leagues adjust back, in response. Brantley’s been excellent in the second half, so he’s still coming out ahead…

Brantley has gotten more and more aggressive within the strike zone, but he hasn’t lost any of his discipline. He’s not swinging at more pitches out of the zone than he did in 2010. He’s making the same amount of contact… There’s nothing dramatic here. There’s no swing overhaul. There’s no adjusted stance. Brantley always had the skills. Now he’s just figured out how to put them all together in the right way.
