That was quick. Lofgren offered back - Lastoria

8

According to T-Last, Milwaukee already knows they can't hang on to Lofgren on the 25 all season. Wonder if it's from seeing him in person or because of other roster considerations. Also wonder if the Indians will take him back or work out a deal.

What to do with Shoppach?

So, it seems like every article you read these days that talks about the Indians near future says that Kelly Shoppach is a likely candidate to be non-tendered this off season.  Is a catcher one...

From Lastoria: "Today the Indians outrighted LHP Zach Jackson, LHP Rich Rundles, and LHP RJ Swindle from the 40-man roster and placed them onto the Triple-A Columbus roster."

Another top ten prospect list from clecom

Some random excerpts: 1. Carlos Santana Must improve English to become legitimate field general. 2. Matt LaPorta Coachable. 3. Nick Hagadone Best stuff of any pitcher on the Cleveland farm. 4. Lonnie Chisenhall Fanatic about hitting. 5. Carlos Carrasco Lack of a wrinkle on the fastball has been a concern. 6. Hector Rondon Mature beyond years and stays calm under pressure. 7. Michael Brantley Understands nuances of game. 8. Nick Weglarz Scouts think the power will increase. 9. Jason Knapp Before injury concerns, the 6-5 Knapp was thought to have best chance of any pitcher on Cleveland farm to pitch at the front of a major-league rotation. 10. Lou Marson Edged left-hander Kelvin De La Cruz for No. 10 spot on Indians.

Who should be locked up?

Being that it's August 10th in a lost season, it's about time to start thinking about something the Indians do some of pretty much every year.  Fausto, being the most recent example.  That is to...

Westbrook Setback

35

"Jake Westbrook's rehab is on hold. In the first setback Westbrook has had since his Tommy John ligament replacement surgery one year ago, the Indians appear to have scrapped previous plans to have him make his third rehab start Wednesday. Westbrook is still dealing with some soreness in his right elbow from after his start Friday for Double-A Akron. He played catch today and is tentatively scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday. No word on when the Indians are now targeting that third start to take place, but this would obviously push back Westbrook's big league return."

17

I'll never have any understanding for anybody going down to Triple-A feeling sorry for themselves or dwelling on it or having an attitude, because the reality is that it's been shown every single year that there are going to be people chosen from there to help us. So go down there and get after it. It's a no-brainer for me."
