by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ryan Raburn hoping to heat up after the break


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Indians outfielder Ryan Raburn hopes the All-Star break will serve as the catalyst needed to awaken his bat, as he told MLB.com Saturday.

"Definitely. It's a new half," Raburn said. "Everything that's happened in the past is in the past. You can't change anything with that. You just have to keep battling forward. Hopefully, it turns around."

Raburn came out of the break with a strong performance, as he went 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles in a 9-3 win over the Tigers Friday, despite entering the game as a pinch-hitter. Raburn entered play Saturday with a .208 average and .542 OPS in 56 games for the Indians.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Urrutia has been recovering from sports hernia surgery, but played in eight rehab games for the team's Gulf Coast League affiliate so far. He is hitting .200 in 30 at-bats in that span, and will likely return to action next week, with a chance to be called up later in the season if a need arises in the majors.

"There's ways to catch up and be an option for us," Showalter said.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
