Countdown to Opening Day – 45 days

When it comes to starting pitching depth, the Cleveland Indians have had plenty in recent years, with a rotation jam packed with talented arms. That has proven to be a tough situation for Adam Plutko, the current wearer of the number 45 in Cleveland, to crack through.

The 27-year-old right-hander and eleventh round pick in the 2013 draft out of UCLA got his first extended look in 2018 when the starting staff was dealing with injuries throughout the year. Having proven himself at the minor league level and after putting up good numbers in his third stint at Triple-A Columbus, Plutko got a chance to join his former college teammate, Trevor Bauer, as one of the many starters used by the club a year ago.

Countdown to Opening Day – 46 days

The number 46 was missing on the field for the Cleveland Indians for the last several years, but it got a quick cup of coffee in 2018 when Jon Edwards brought it back to the mound in his first big league action since 2015.

It was a long and uphill battle for the now 31-year-old right-hander, who last pitched with the San Diego Padres in 2015 before he found his way back to the Majors when the Indians brought him up as one of the club’s September call-ups last season. While he provided the Tribe with some mixed results, he has survived offseason moves that have trimmed some players off of the 40-man roster and he is still on pace to report to spring training at the team’s Goodyear, Arizona, complex this week.

Countdown to Opening Day – 47 days

With 47 days until Opening Day, the Tribe’s number 47 was once again in the news as Trevor Bauer participated in an arbitration hearing with the Cleveland Indians for a second straight year on Friday. The results of the case are not expected until sometime next week, as the two sides were $2 million apart in their offers (Bauer asked for $13 million, while the Indians offered $11 million).

Regardless of the final figures, Bauer is due to receive a big raise from the $6.525 million that he received through arbitration a year ago. His new windfall of cash is, however, well deserved. Read More
