Manny Ramirez Jerseys is that

"The curveball is harder to throw in the zone for strikes," Callaway said in June, when his pitchers threw curves 18.7 percent of the time for the month. "I think what we were missing Manny Ramirez Jerseys is that, when you throw Cleveland Indians Jerseys breaking balls, you get the benefit of more chase out of the zone. So your strike percentage is actually higher, even though your zone percentage might be lower." Over the past two seasons combined, Cleveland has held batters to a .176 average, .272 slugging percentage and .206 weighted on-base average on curveballs, according to Statcast™. Each of those marks ranked first in the Majors, which had averages of .215 (batting), .346 (slugging) and .249 (wOBA) in those categories. During that same two-year period, Cleveland led the American League in ERA (3.58), FIP (3.62), strikeouts per nine innings (9.4), strikeouts (3,012) and strikeout-to-walk ratio (3.5), among other areas. "You have less hard contact. You have less balls in play for average. You have less hits with that pitch," Tomlin said. "So, let's throw that more. OK, and next thing you know, you go through a stretch where you get six, seven innings per outing and you get your ERA down a little bit Francisco Lindor Jerseys lower and you give your team a chance to win." No matter who the Indians hire as their new pitching coach -- the search is underway for Callaway's replacement -- they will inherit mostly the same pitching staff. The starting rotation trio of Kluber, Carrasco and Bauer is slated to return, along with Danny Salazar and Mike Clevinger. Tomlin has a $3 million team option that looks like a no-brainer for Cleveland to pick up. Relievers Bryan Shaw and Joe Smith will be eligible for free agency, but the bulk of the Tribe bullpen will remain intact. The curveball will also return as a primary weapon for the Manny Ramirez Jerseys Indians' overpowering staff. "It's just happened over time," Callaway said in June. "I think there's Jason Kipnis Jerseys more information on arm care, health, things like that, that are leaning more toward velo than breaking balls, when it comes to problems with the elbow and things like that. So, that probably relieves some tension in pitching coaches' minds and players' minds that they can go out there and throw 50-percent breaking balls and they're going to be OK." I want to buy one?

Andrew Miller Jerseys the realization that this could

Indians not ready to tackle uncertain future They stood together talking quietly in Cleveland Indians Jerseys a hallway outside the Indians' clubhouse. Josh Tomlin, the longest-tenured player in the organization, leaned against a wall. Michael Brantley, often described as the heart and soul of the team, kept his hands inside the pockets of his sweatshirt. There will undoubtedly be more conversations in the days and weeks to come, but Andrew Miller Jerseys the realization that this could be the end of the line for several members of Cleveland's core was sinking in. After a 5-2 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday night, sealing the Tribe's defeat in Game 5 of the American League Division Series presented by Doosan, players like Brantley, Carlos Santana and Jay Bruce were faced with uncertain futures sooner than anticipated. "I started a quest back in 2009. I want to finish it the right way," Brantley said. "I don't want to go out like this if it's my choice. It's not. I just look forward to hopefully Francisco Lindor Jerseys being back here with this group of guys. I have amazing relationships with everybody in this locker room. Great teammates. Great team. I just look forward to being part of it for Jason Kipnis Jerseys a long time." Chris Antonetti, the Indians' president of baseball operations, made his way around the home clubhouse after Wednesday's loss, shaking the hands of his players. Andrew Miller Jerseys Antonetti, general manager Mike Chernoff and manager Terry Francona were hoping to avoid discussions about the 2018 roster until after the World Series. Instead, the Yanks are moving on and the offseason came early in Cleveland. There will be a lot on the front office's plate. Relievers Bryan Shaw and Joe Smith will be free agents, along with veteran outfielder Austin Jackson. Tomlin also has a $3 million team option for 2018. The biggest decisions, though, will revolve around Brantley ($11 million team option or $1 million buyout), Santana (free agent) and Bruce (free agent). I want to buy one? Welcome to our store

We respect how much they pitch. But, that way, Francisco Lindor Jerseys when we pitch them, we know they're OK. And that's why we  Francisco Lindor Jerseys wanted to give him a day or so, just to kind of catch up a little bit, which he did." Greg Allen charges in on a shallow fly ball and lays out to make a fantastic diving catch to end the game, sealing a 6-3 Indians' win During that Tuesday outing, Allen allowed a home run to Justin Upton, but escaped the rest of the ninth unscathed for his 28th save. It is worth noting that Allen averaged 93.2 mph on his fastball on Tuesday, representing his lowest rate since July 24. Allen, who has a 2.57 ERA with 84 strikeouts against 21 walks through 63 innings, has averaged 94.3 mph on his heater this season, per Statcast™. "I was a little sore the Jason Kipnis Jerseys night that I threw," Allen said. "So, I just figured this is probably a good time to take a couple days. We Cleveland Indians Jerseys have a full bullpen Andrew Miller Jerseys right now, everybody seems pretty well rested. ... I'm not a fan of not pitching, not being available. But also, at the same time, there's a fine line there. Taking those couple days off is probably in the best interest of myself and in the best interest of this ballclub. "You give yourself a little break, a little bit of boost, where when you come back, you just feel good and then can kind of ride a good rhythm through the rest of the year and the postseason."
