Right-handers Jensen Lewis and Joe Smith have signed contracts for 2011 with the Indians. Both had inconsistent results in 2010 and spent some time at Triple-A Columbus in addition to being part of Cleveland's bullpen. Though they are under contract for next season, neither is guaranteed of having a job in the Indians' bullpen again -- though both have displayed the ability to do a good job.

Grady Sizemore hit two homers to join the exclusive 30-30 club as the Indians claimed a season-high eighth straight win Monday night. Franklin Gutierrez's 10th inning homer gave Cleveland a 4-3 win in Detroit and moved the Indians within a half game of the third-place Tigers in the AL Central. Superb pitching by starter Zach Jackson and new-found closer Jensen Lewis helped the cause, too.
