Countdown to Opening Day – 41 days

The number 41 has not gotten a lot of use in Indians history, but last season marked the first time the number had gone unused since 2003. The last three players to wear the number, however, have left significant marks on the franchise (including a pair of switch-hitting catchers turned first basemen) and one of those players will make his triumphant return home to Cleveland back in the digit for the 2019 season.

As players gather in Arizona and Florida for the beginning of official 2019 related baseball activities, the Cleveland Indians extended invitations to three more players on Thursday to join their spring camp at Goodyear.

The Indians announced the signings of catcher Tim Federowicz and pitcher Asher Wojciechowski to minor league contracts with non-roster invitations to spring training. In addition to the two veteran adds, the team also announced that Ernie Clement, the club’s fourth round pick in the 2017 draft out of the University of Virginia, has also been granted an invitation to participate with the big league club this spring.

Cleveland reliever Michael Jackson was one of 13 players who were wearing that number at the time and was allowed to continue wearing it, making him the last to call the number his own for the Indians.

Countdown to Opening Day – 43 days

The longest tenured member of the Cleveland Indians organization at the end of the 2018 season and the team’s longest representative in the number 43 in franchise history has moved on this winter, as Josh Tomlin’s free agency experience came to a close last week when he signed a one-year minor league contract with the Milwaukee Brewers with an invitation to spring training. If he makes the Brewers’ roster, he will make $1.25 million, with another $2.25 million available in performance bonuses.

Tomlin had several years of service over his next closest teammate, in terms of years of employment by the Indians. A 19th round draft pick in 2006 out of Texas Tech, Tomlin signed on June 9 of that year and had been a part of the Cleveland organization ever since. Read More

Major League Baseball teams have begun reporting to their spring homes, including the Cleveland Indians as they take up residence in Goodyear, Arizona, for the next month and a half before the regular season kicks off on March 28.

Countdown to Opening Day – 44 days

There is a strange correlation between quite a few members of the #44 family in Tribe history – many were (and still are) well known for having some pretty glorious facial hair, for those who are a fan of such a thing.

It’s a weird coincidence, to be sure. Forty players have worn the number (most recently by Tribe reliever Nick Goody last season) and the most memorable of the bunch can be remembered for the beards and mustaches that they sported on the field. Read More
