Fans are encouraged to attend the Noon game vs. the Tigers and stay post-game to support the cause, with tips and 20% of proceeds going directly to VeloSano. The Indians will have a silent auction available to raise additional money. Snack items such as nachos and peanuts will also be available for purchase.
Fans not able to attend the game are still invited without a game ticket to attend the event and enter Progressive Field at the Right Field Gate near the New Era Team Shop off East 9th St. 30 minutes following last out of the game. The event is expected to conclude 3.5 hours (approx. 6:30pm) following the last out.
The Indians partnered once again with Cleveland Clinic to support VeloSano, an annual charity bike ride event, held this summer July 17-19 in Cleveland. The Indians will also field a team of nearly 60 riders, including Indians Chairman and CEO Paul Dolan and other members of the Indians front office.
VeloSano, Latin for “swift cure,” is a major community fundraising initiative, where 100% of dollars raised by VeloSano participants directly benefits cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. At its core, it’s a cycling event where riders commit to raise a pre-determined dollar amount by requesting support from personal contacts.

Busy day around here: Tribe players visited Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital and UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, then took part in our Tribe Fest VIP events for our Season Ticket Holders.
Here’s a recap in Tweets:
Editor’s Note: This post has been updated to reflect Corey Kluber signing a contract extension that keeps him in Cleveland through at least 2019, with club options for 2020 and 2021.
With the World Series nearing an end – and what a series it’s been – baseball’s offseason will move into high gear, beginning with the postseason awards the week of Nov. 10. Those include MVP, where Michael Brantley should finish in the top 3, and Cy Young, where Corey Kluber should have a good chance at winning.
Before the offseason begins, it’s prudent to take a look at exactly where the Tribe’s roster stands – especially since it’s in a good place: 16 players are under Indians control through at least 2016, with the team’s top young players – Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes, Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and more – under control even longer.
Here’s a look at the current Indians roster and the number of seasons through which individual players are scheduled to be under club control. Certainly this can change over the course of an offseason – for instance contract extensions to Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes and Jason Kipnis last year.
Under club control through at least 2019
- Corey Kluber
- Jason Kipnis
- Yan Gomes
- Danny Salazar
Under club control through at least 2018
- Cody Allen
- Zach McAllister
- Nick Hagadone
Under club control through at least 2017
- Michael Brantley
- Bryan Shaw
- Lonnie Chisenhall
- Carlos Carrasco
Under club control through at least 2016
- Nick Swisher
- Michael Bourn
- Carlos Santana
- Marc Rzepczynski
- Josh Tomlin
Additionally, a group of young Tribe players who impacted the big-league club are under control for even longer; they’re just into their Major League service time clock, so the club controls their rights even past 2019. That group includes:
- Jesus Aguilar
- Kyle Crockett
- Tyler Holt
- TJ House
- CC Lee
- Roberto Perez
- Jose Ramirez
- Zach Walters

Participants can face off against Tribe players including Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis, among others

With Josh Tomlin earning Tuesday’s victory, Indians starters have gone 4-0 with a 1.29 ERA (7 ER/48.2 IP) and 54 strikeouts against 10 walks over the rotation’s last 6 starts here at Progressive Field…over the last 4 games, Tribe starters have allowed just 2 earned runs across 28.1 IP (0.64 ERA) with 31 K’s and 5 walks.
Making his 2014 season debut, Tomlin worked into the 7th inning and picked up his first Major League victory since July 5, 2012 vs. Tampa Bay (W, 6.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R-ER, 1 BB, 4 SO, 1 HR, 93 pitches/66 strikes)…Tuesday was his first ML appearance since a 2.0-inning relief outing on September 3, 2013 at Chicago-AL; marks his first start since July 27, 2012 at Minnesota.
Tomlin faced just 2 more batters than the minimum through his first 4 innings, allowing a pair of singles in the top of the second – retired the side in the top of the 3rd on 7 pitches.
Entered Tuesday’s game on a consecutive scoreless inning streak of 20.0 spanning over his last 3 starts for the Triple-A Columbus Clippers.
Shaw was tabbed with an unearned run in the top of the 9th, but shut the door on the Twins to earn his first save of the season.
Marks his 4th career save and second with the Tribe; also September 20, 2013 vs. Houston.
Tonight’s unearned run was the first tally Shaw has allowed here at Progressive Field since August 23, 2013 vs. Minnesota, snapping a streak of 18.0 consecutive scoreless outings.
Atchison bridged the gap to Bryan Shaw, striking out 2 over a scoreless 8th inning.
Opposing batters have gone just 6-43 (.140) vs. Atchison this season.

Some facts and figures from our Baseball Information department on the club’s solid pitching of late.
Zach McAllister’s 6.2 scoreless inning performance tonight lowered the rotation’s home ERA to 3.14 (37 ER/106.0 IP), including a 1.28 ERA (6 ER/42.1 IP) over the club’s last 6 home starts.
In the rotation’s last 22IP, Justin Masterson, Corey Kluber and McAllister have allowed 1 run and 12 hits, striking out 27. Those three pitchers have combined for a 0.41ERA in that span.
McAllister scattered just 5 hits across his 6.2 innings of work on Monday (ND, 6.2 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 SO, 1 WP, 114 pitches/76 strikes), marking his second scoreless start of the season (4/9/14 vs. SD, 7.2 IP) and his 3rd career scoreless outing of at least 6.0 innings.
He fanned a season-high 8 batters, matching his career-high accomplished 3 previous times (last, 8/23/11 vs. Seattle).
His 114 pitches signaled a single-game high for Tribe hurlers this season, one more than Masterson’s 113 on April 28 at Los Angeles-AL.
McAllister has allowed just 3 earned runs over his last 25.1 innings (1.07 ERA) at Progressive Field dating back to last September (4 starts); over that stretch he has registered 20 strikeouts and just 4 walks, while limiting batters to a .211 (20/95) average against.
Bryan Shaw stranded 2 inherited runners, increasing the Tribe’s bullpen count to 48 of 57 on the season (84.2 %); entering tonight the Tribe held the 2nd-best percentage in the Majors behind only Boston (84.0%, 42 of 50).
Marc Rzepczynski threw one pitch in the top of the 10th, stranding an additional 2 runners – Tribe’s bullpen has now stranded 50 of 59 inherited runners (84.7%).
Cody Allen tossed a scoreless 9th inning for the Tribe, fanning 2 of the 4 batters he faced. He has registered scoreless outings in 15 of his 16 appearances this season, and has recorded 4 strikeouts over his last 2.2 innings (3 games).
