The Indians acquired reliever Joe Smith from the Blue Jays before the end of Monday’s MLB trade deadline, according to multiple reports.
Smith is 3-0 with a 3.28 ERA this season. He also has 51 strikeouts in just 35 2/3 innings. Smith pitched in Cleveland from 2009 to 2013.
With Andrew Miller and Cody Allen already contending for saves, Smith will likely work in the seventh inning. His arrival gives Cleveland one of the most dominant bullpens in MLB.
The Indians, who have won nine of their last 10 games, will once again rely on stingy pitching in the postseason while trying to improve upon last season’s World Series loss.

She used to come in each and every ballgame I ever played, whether it be fastball, it can basketball, it can baseball, it with running track. Sue Raines was always there, and I knew it. You know, and she pushed me not in a way by saying do this or do that, but she always made me smile, and that smile made me go on and do the things that I was able to do. Thank you, Sue and Ned. Thank you so much.
As you know, I’m not looking at these notes because I had to change them around a little bit because we are at the end of the day. I’m surely not used to batting fifth. Although I feel like I had the power and speed to do it.

I also want to talk about my kids, my two boys. Little Rock, you know, the year Little Rock was born, four or five days later, I was called up to the Big Leagues. I was in my second full season in the Minor Leagues. I didn’t get a chance to see Little Rock until the season was over, so he had to be about a month, month and a half old, and when I finally came back to see him, he had no clue who the heck I was.
