Introducing a brand new podcast to the IBI and Smoke Signals family: The Trainer's Table with Jake Dungan and Brandon Bowers. On this debut show, the guys discuss the plague of injuries that have unfortunately graced the Indians during their final playoff push and what the recovery process looks like for the affected players.
Michael Brantley (right shoulder surgery), Danny Salazar (forearm strain), Yan Gomes (right wrist fracture), and now Carlos Carrasco (broken right hand) have all suffered season-ending injuries in the team's pursuit of winning the Central Division.

A pitchers dual between Justin Verlander and eight different members of the Cleveland Indians bullpen ended with a game-winning RBI single off the bat of Jose Ramirez. Carlos Carrasco departed early in what looks to be a season-ending injury.
Carlos Carrasco's night did not go exactly as planned allowing eight hits and five runs (four earned) in nearly four innings of work. Two errors by Lonnie Chisenhall and a Roberto Perez passed ball accounted for two unearned runs.
