A big name free agent power hitting outfielder is coming to the American League Central, but for those hoping that the Indians added that right-handed power bat long sought to their lineup, Justin Upton‘s destination was a bit more northwest than Cleveland fans may have preferred.

It was a quiet week for the Tribe, with softly spoken rumors of interest in a small number of fringe free agent options being the biggest of the discussions of the week.

While Did The Tribe Win Last Night continues to look to the past with their 1948 season day-by-day recap, we also continue to look towards the present and the future as we count down to Opening Day and profile some of the names you may need to know looking forward.

1948 Cleveland Indians weekly rewind

The injury bug returned to this stretch of Indians action in 1948, chronicling the seven-day span from July 30th through August 5th.

The Indians, immersed in a tightly-contested battle for the American League pennant, cooled off the red hot Red Sox by taking three of four from their Boston rivals. It did not come without losses, however, as the club lost outfielder Hank Edwards for the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury before losing player-manager Lou Boudreau after taking two straight from the Washington Senators.
