Down in the Dominican: Indians/Brewers June 30th-July 13th

By: Joseph Coblitz | July 14, 2019 The Dominican Summer League Indians/Brewers combo squad has continued on with their particular brand of bad baseball as they lost eight of the 11 games played during the last two weeks to maintain their hold on last place in the DSL North.

Yainer Diaz Ready for Next Challenge

By: Joseph Coblitz | July 11, 2019 There is something that can be said definitively about the Indians going back multiple generations of front offices. They are absolutely terrible at drafting catchers. With the exception of Roberto Perez, who was a 33rd round pick in 2008 that they essentially lucked out with, they haven’t drafted a player who stayed at the position and had any MLB success at all since taking Andy Allanson in the second round in 1983 (and he only had a 1.1 bWAR spread across four seasons).
