Lonnie Chisenhall’s better pitch selection has him in best offensive season of career

CLEVELAND: Indians outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall is in the middle of his best offensive season, and it could be in part thanks to a more disciplined approach. Entering Sunday’s game, Chisenhall was hitting .294 with a .944 OPS. He’s slugged 10 home runs—three off his single-season high, when he hit 13 in 2014—to go with 10 doubles and 37 RBI in 163 plate appearances. The power surge has been the most noticeable.

Twins 4, Indians 2: 13 Walk-Off Thoughts on an ugly first inning, Corey Kluber’s renewed dominance

Here are 13 Walk-Off Thoughts after the Indians’ 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday. 1. The Indians received a dominating performance from ace Corey Kluber but didn’t help him much in the first inning. Two errors led to two runs, and that self-inflicted deficit lasted until the seventh inning. 2. The error was attributed to Jason Kipnis, who was charged with a throwing error while in the shift. Throwing from the left side of the infield, Kipnis’ throw wasn’t too far off the mark but pulled Carlos Santana off the bag. After a walk, Dozier was driven in via a double by...

Indians report: Rookie outfielder Bradley Zimmer displaying ‘mature’ approach

CLEVELAND: Indians rookie outfielder Bradley Zimmer had an up-and-down 2016 between the Double-A and Triple-A levels, eventually changing the mechanics of his swing midway through the year and falling off some top prospect lists. He’s seemed perfectly comfortable in the majors in 2017.Entering Saturday, Zimmer was hitting .308 with a .388 on-base percentage and a .905 OPS to go with four home runs, seven doubles, 20 RBI and seven stolen bases in 34 games. He’s produced offensively while giving the Indians above-average defense in center field that’s included four defensive runs saved,...

Indians slugger Edwin Encarnacion following his traditional season arc

CLEVELAND: A slow start followed by the pummeling of baseballs in June? Edwin Encarnacion is simply having a traditional Edwin Encarnacion-like season. Encarnacion has been among baseball’s most prolific hitters over the previous five seasons. In most of those seasons, it took him some time to get going offensively. Historically, April has been Encarnacion’s worst month at the plate, but as the calendar turns to late May and then June, he’s consistently been one of the more lethal hitters in any lineup. It’s happening again, and it should help to calm some quick-trigger concerns with...
