• Right-hander Corey Kluber, who is on the 15-day disabled list working his way back from a sprained right middle finger, played catch up to a distance of 90 feet on Friday. Indians manager Terry Francona said Kluber is "flying through" his rehab and is scheduled to advance to 120 feet in his throwing program on Saturday.

• Right-hander Josh Tomlin, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow, was slated to throw four innings (or 60-65 pitches) on Friday for Double-A Akron. Through six Minor League rehab outings, Tomlin has logged 8 1/3 shutout innings with seven strikeouts and no walks.

• Right-hander Brett Myers -- on the disabled list since late April with a right elbow ailment -- has completed four bullpen sessions in his latest return to the mound. Francona indicated that the veteran pitcher is slated to throw a simulated game on Sunday with Akron.

• With Wednesday's 9-8 win over the Twins in 12 innings, the Indians improved to a Major League-best 8-2 in extra-inning affairs this season. Cleveland also upped its record in one-run games to 24-14 (.632 winning percentage).
