The Indians are 21-21 this season, but there's no doubt they would be better if their bullpen was performing up to expectations.
The rotation is 18-10 with a 3.42 ERA. It ranks second in the AL in ERA and innings pitched to Houston. Indians' starters have issued 63 walks, second fewest in the league.
The bullpen is 3-11 with the AL's highest ERA at 5.68. Things have been especially bad over the last 20 games, 1-7 with one save, three blown saves and a 9.73 ERA (49 earned runs in 45 1/3 innings).
Cleveland starters Corey Kluber (2.34), Carlos Carrassco (3.66), Trevor Bauer (2.59), and Mike Clevinger (2.70) are clearly pulling their weight, but the club's fifth starter, Josh Tomlin, is 0-4 with an ERA of 7.84.
But pitching is not all that Tom Hamilton discussed with 105.7 The Zone today. The veteran broadcaster discussed what the team needs to do to get on a roll, Michael Brantley's role with the team, and how fun it is to cover Francisco Lindor.
