The Tribe is off for four days for the All-Star break. The Indians will resume play Friday, when they begin a three-game series against the Rangers at Globe Life Park at 8:05 p.m. ET. Trevor Bauer (8-6, 2.24 ERA) will be on the hill for the Tribe, and Martin Perez (2-4, 7.67) will get the call in the opener for Texas.
Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez entered the All-Star break leading MLB in extra-base hits, and the 5-foot-9 slugger is on pace for a special season in Cleveland.

Rockies shortstop Trevor Story and Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez were honored Monday as the National League and the American League Player of the Week presented by W.B. Mason.
There's a reason Michael Brantley was selected to the All-Star Game. The Indians left fielder delivered a clutch leadoff home run in the bottom of the eighth in the first-half finale against the Yankees on Sunday, opening the door for a three-run rally -- in which Jose Ramirez joined the 20/20 club -- that secured a 5-2 win and a series split for the Tribe at Progressive Field. Trevor Bauer delivered his eighth straight quality start and Carlos Carrasco picked up the win in relief, while Yanks righty Masahiro Tanaka allowed just two runs over 6 1/3 quality innings.

Indians relief ace Andrew Miller is one step closer to a return from the disabled list with the possibility of a comeback early in the second half, manager Terry Francona said Sunday. Miller, who's been on the 10-day DL since May 26 with right knee inflammation, is scheduled to begin a Minor League rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.
The 20th edition of the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game had no shortage of big moments, with the two sides combining for eight home runs -- doubling the previous Futures Game record -- as Team USA outslugged the World, 10-6, on All-Star Sunday at Nationals Park. Here is a recap of each player's performance, with a breakdown of each club's representatives.
A sixth Indians player will be heading to Washington, D.C., next week as a reserve for the All-Star Game presented by Mastercard. Catcher Yan Gomes was announced to the Midsummer Classic during the ninth inning of the Tribe's 5-4 loss to the Yankees on Saturday at Progressive Field.
Though Brandon Guyer entered Saturday's game 2-for-26 all-time against Yankees starter CC Sabathia, the right-handed-hitting outfielder had an .854 OPS against lefties and delivered a game-tying, two-run single in the sixth inning to take Sabathia out of the game. Guyer, however, was charged with a key error in the seventh inning, allowing the Yankees to take the lead and sealing a 5-4 win over the Indians at Progressive Field.

Shane Bieber was victorious in his first career start against the Yankees after he fanned six and allowed just three runs in seven-plus innings, backed by multi-RBI efforts from Jose Ramirez and Michael Brantley. New York made things interesting off the Cleveland bullpen, pulling within a run before Cody Allen thwarted the threat to record his 19th save.
Corey Kluber understands his importance to the Indians for the second half of the season. Should Cleveland capture its third straight American League Central crown, the ace will also want to log as many innings as possible on the October stage. With that in mind, Kluber has decided not to participate in the All-Star Game.
Inside a packed Progressive Field on Thursday night, the opener of this four-game set lived up to its blockbuster billing, but the Indians were hung with a 7-4 defeat. Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor showed why they are arguably baseball's best offensive duo, but the Yankees got to ace Corey Kluber in the end.
The Yankees have seen plenty of Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez -- MLB's home run leader heading into Thursday night. But New York ran up against another powerful slugger in the opener at Progressive Field, as Jose Ramirez belted his 28th blast of the season to tie Martinez for the Major League lead.
When Trevor Bauer was dealing with a gash on the pinkie finger of his throwing hand two years ago, the Indians starter considered cauterizing the wound himself in order to keep pitching in the postseason. So, no, taking the mound this Sunday is not hindering Bauer's desire to pitch in the All-Star Game next week.
Here is a glance at how the AL Central's landscape looks as trade talks keep gathering steam.
It shouldn't catch Ty Van Burkleo off-guard, but it does. The Indians' hitting coach is around Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor every day. And yet, when the scoreboard occasionally flashes a listing of the Major League home run leaders, Van Burkleo is still amazed.
Jose Ramirez got the Indians on the board with a two-run homer in the first inning and they never looked back, scoring 19 runs to take the Ohio Cup finale over the Reds on Wednesday at Progressive Field. Ramirez added a three-run homer as part of a nine-run third, and Francisco Lindor put the game fully out of reach with a three-run home run as part of a six-run fourth. The Reds got homers from Scooter Gennett and Jesse Winker, but starter Tyler Mahle and reliever Tanner Rainey were hit for a combined 15 runs in the loss.
Jose Ramirez has been auditioning for the Home Run Derby ever since finding out he earned a spot in the American League's starting lineup for the upcoming All-Star Game.

Here are the top 10 performers from the 31st edition of the Triple-A All-Star Game.
When the bullpen door swung open in the ninth inning on Tuesday night, Indians manager Terry Francona was not expecting to see Dan Otero enter the field. With every step Otero took on his jog to the mound, Francona realized there had been a critical communication breakdown. With the bases loaded, the game on the line and Reds star Joey Votto looming, Francona wanted lefty Oliver Perez for the two-out situation. This was a case of nicknames gone wrong, and the mixup did considerable damage in a 7-4 loss. All seven Cincinnati runs came in the ninth -- three on a three-run double by Votto -- to wash away a brilliant eight-inning performance by Trevor Bauer.

Francisco Lindor led off the bottom of the first inning with a shot deep into the right-field stands against Reds righty Sal Romano, pulling into a tie with Jose Ramirez with 24 home runs on the season. They only shared the team lead for a few minutes, though. Two batters later, Ramirez crushed a pitch from Romano over the wall in center for his 25th blast of the year.
