8/29/2016 | Tomlin hoping to bounce back vs. Albers
If the Indians are to keep it rolling down the stretch in their bid to win their first American League Central title since 2007, they're going to need some help from the back of the rotation, especially from right-hander Josh Tomlin.

8/29/2016 | Tribe feels sticking by Tomlin best approach

8/28/2016 | Salazar's improvement a silver lining in loss
During a 2-1 loss to the Rangers on Sunday, Cleveland walked away encouraged by a solid outing from righty Danny Salazar, whose recent issues compounded some problems for the rotation as a whole. That was the only true positive, along with the fact that the Indians did not lose in blowout fashion like in the previous two losses at Globe Life Park.
8/28/2016 | Francona using DH starts to keep Napoli fresh

8/28/2016 | Gimenez steps up in relief to save bullpen
