Behind the power bats of Carlos Santana and Ezequiel Carrera, the Cleveland Indians beat the Milwaukee Brewers in a split-squad game 7-4 Sunday in Phoenix.

Santana and Carrera homered while Mike Aviles and Cord Phelps added RBI singles for the Tribe.

Carlos Carrasco started for the Indians and allowed four runs, three earned in one inning. Carrasco missed all of 2012, is coming back from Tommy John surgery.

Two pitchers competing for the four and five spots in the pitching rotation, Scott Kazmir and Trevor Bauer, pitched well, throwing two scoreless innings each.

Reds put Choo in centerfield during spring training games

When the Cincinnati Reds traded the talented, speedy but often slump-ridden Drew Stubbs to the Cleveland Indians during the off-season, fans and media wondered who would play center field.

Sure, the Reds received Shin-Soo Choo in the trade to become their leadoff hitter, which would strengthen the team’s batting order. But Choo was a rightfielder with the Indians.

All told, Choo has made only 10 starts in center field in his eight major league seasons, but the Reds will give him the first chance at the job. After all, he has speed and an arm to play the outfield’s toughest position.

If that doesn’t work out, the Reds can play Jay Bruce in center field and move Choo back to his customary spot in right field. Ryan Ludwick will stay in left field. Either way, the Reds will have one of baseball’s top slugging outfields.

Choo batting leadoff means that Brandon Phillips, the Reds best option there the past few years, will now back second which is best for him.

Choo’s on-base percentage¬† of .373 last season, was better than the Reds’ leadoff hitters which were the worst in the National League.

The Reds lineup is supposed to look this way: Choo CF, Phillips 2B, Votto 1B, Ludwick LF, Frazier 3B, Bruce RF, Cozart SS, Hanigan C and the pitcher will always be ninth. A solid lineup indeed!

Swisher’s career totals include: a .256 batting average with 209 homers, 673 RBI’s with 1,085 base hits.

As expected, Indians release veteran Derek Lowe

 

Ten days ago, the Cleveland Indians designated veteran right-hander Derek Lowe for assignment. That meant the team had ten days to trade, or release him.  Today, Friday August 10 was the deadline.

The verdict is Cleveland has released Lowe.

There are reports on Twitter that Lowe will start or relieve and would like to go back to the National League.

The 39-year-old Lowe,  posted a 5.52 ERA with 3.1 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 119 innings with Cleveland this year. He has a 15 million dollar salary, but the Braves and Indians are responsible for all but the pro-rated MLB minimum at this point. So any team can sign him and only have to pay the minimum salary.

Lopez is the latest player designated for assignment by slumping Indians

 

The Cleveland Indians, in the midst of a 10-game losing streak, have given Derek Lowe and Johnny Damon some company on the”designated for assignment” list. Today, the team announced that they designated infielder Jose Lopez for assignment. The move allows room for right-hander Frank Herrmann who has been recalled from Triple-A Columbus. Herrmann is needed due to an over-used bullpen.

Lopez appeared in 66 games for the Indians this year, playing third base and seeing some time at first and second. The 28-year-old posted a .249 batting average in 224 plate appearances. He earns $800K this year after signing a minor league deal with Cleveland last December.
