Couple gets married in suite during Tribe doubleheader

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

One happy couple had a unique wedding at Progressive Field on Wednesday afternoon, as they officially tied the knot in a suite at the ballpark. Kara O’Donnell and Kenneth Mitchell Shaw married during game 2 of the Indians-Padres doubleheader, while game action was taking place behind them. (Yan Gomes scored a game-tying run for the Tribe as the presiding judge read the couple’s vows.)

The wedding came complete with a customized cake and hats embroidered “Mr.” and “Mrs.” for the groom and bride, provided by the Indians. Kenneth and Kara were joined by family and several close friends in the suite, and the ceremony took place on the balcony of Suite 259.

The couple has a full destination wedding planned for later this year.

MLB Transactions 101: ‘Tender’ is the Night

For baseball fans who follow the off-season Hot Stove, “non-tender” is one phrase being heard repeatedly today, as Monday at Midnight ET marked the deadline for all MLB Clubs to offer a contract to each player on their respective Major League Reserve Lists.

What does tender mean?
When an organization tenders a contract to a player, that front office is essentially conveying its intent to offer a Major League contract for the upcoming season – the actual terms of the contract have not yet been finalized, although these often wind up being one-year deals because of the classification of players typically involved (those who have yet to reach 6 years of MLB Service Time and therefore Free Agency).

Which players does this deadline apply to?
All players on each team’s Major League Reserve List (40-man roster), although players who have already signed contracts are already covered – the list that gets submitted to Major League Baseball includes 3 classifications of players that must cover everyone on the 40-man roster: 1) Tendered, 2) Non-tendered and 3) Signed. For instance, Nick Swisher’s current 4-year contract (through 2016 with vesting option for 2017) overrides the need for the Indians to tender him a contract offer.

What happens after this list is submitted to MLB?
Players who are tendered 2014 contracts then negotiate the length and financial terms of the agreement with their teams; this often results in a one-year contract, particularly for players not yet eligible for the salary arbitration process, although the two sides certainly have the option of discussing a multi-year deal. For those players with 3-or-more, but less than 6 years of MLB Service Time (and also those who fall under the “Super Two” classification), receiving a contract tender makes them eligible for salary arbitration if no agreement can be reached beforehand. All non-tendered players immediately become free agents and are able to sign with any team, although factors like Service Time remain intact.

Why do teams decide to non-tender certain players?
With only 40 available spots on each team’s Major League Reserve List, ultimately this decision comes down to how well each player fits the organization at that time and place – positional depth, injuries and payroll flexibility are just a few of the realities that must be factored in.

Here is a complete list of the 43 players who were non-tendered by their 2013 Clubs on Monday (former Club in parenthesis):

RHP Scott Atchison (NYM)
RHP Dylan Axelrod (CWS)
RHP John Axford (StL)

Yan Gomes Earns Wilson Defensive Player of the Year Honors

In an announcement made tonight on MLB Network, C Yan Gomes received a Wilson Defensive Player of the Year Award after being selected as the Indians’ top defensive player for the 2013 season. Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia and Diamondbacks OF Gerardo Parra were later chosen as the overall American League and National League recipients, respectively. Founded in 2012, the Wilson Defensive Player of the Year Award winners are “determined by using a formula that balances scouting information, sabermetric analysis and basic fielding statistics.”

Gomes, 26, appeared in 85 games behind the plate for Cleveland last season (79 starts), batting .294 (86-293) with 18 doubles, 11 homers and 38 RBI. The Brazilian native threw out an impressive 38.3% (18-47) of runners attempting to steal, which would have been the highest such percentage in the A.L. had he caught enough games to qualify. Indians pitchers recorded a 3.56 ERA (710.0 IP, 670 H, 281 ER) with Yan catching, while Cleveland went 49-30 (.620) in his 79 starts.
