Indians activate OFs Michael Brantley, Brandon Guyer from DL; Corey Kluber named AL POW

CLEVELAND: The Indians welcomed back both Michael Brantley and Brandon Guyer to the outfield on Monday with their activation from the 10-day disabled list. Brantley was placed on the disabled list on June 16 with a right ankle sprain, though he had been dealing with it for roughly a month. He had started to run on the field in recent days and progressed well enough to warrant his activation. He was available to pinch hit on Monday and is expected to start on Tuesday. This season he’s hitting .296 with a .360 on-base percentage, five home runs, 13 doubles, 28 RBI and seven stolen...

The Adeiny Hechavarria trade shows the Rays mean business

Hechavarria goes from the fish... to the other fish! The Tampa Bay Rays are finalizing their acquisition of Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria, a top flight defensive shortstop that the Marlins put on the trade block in an attempt to clear salary. What a world we live in where the Rays were the answer to that call. Here’s what the acquisition of a 2-win glove means for the Rays in 2017, at a moment where they are 2.5 games back in the division, and 1 game back from leading the Wild Card race. The Rays have a new Shortstop Tim Beckham was thrust into the shortstop role in 2017 after recovery...

Trade Byron Buxton for pitching? No, no, no -- on so many levels

I could have, and perhaps even wanted to, let this go — just absorb the words, know it was a bad idea but probably just an idle suggestion in passing, and move on. I couldn’t do it, though. And so here it is: in an item on the Twins at SI.com, writer Jeremy Fuchs uses this weekend’s Twins sweep in Cleveland — the first of its kind since 1991, the last time Minnesota won the World Series, of course — as a device for heaping some praise on the local nine. He gets it mostly right, starting with Ervin Santana, noting Miguel Sano’s huge impact, perhaps overstating the contributions of...

Red Sox vs. Twins Lineups: Yet another third baseman

Tzu-Wei Lin gets his first career start. Coming off two straight disappointing series losses, the Red Sox could really use some positive momentum — particularly on the offensive side of things — this week against the Twins. They’ll have their hands full on Monday going up against Jose Berrios, one of the most talented young pitchers in all of baseball. He’s had a hell of a start to his season, and hopefully the Red Sox will be able to put an end to that. To do so, they are going with a mostly status quo lineup. The one change is at, of course, third base. I don’t need to tell you...

Napoli was often praised as a leader in the clubhouse and a positive influence on many of the younger players. He said in April that he had stayed in touch with many players and manager Terry Francona.It’s also the good he was able to do with the Party at Napoli’s promotion, which raised well over $100,000 for Cleveland Clinic hospitals.“Well, everyone just looks at the baseball part, and it...
