Some Good News and Some Bad News from Indians’ Camp in Goodyear

March 13, 2017 |

The World Baseball Classic has deprived Major League spring training camps of countless players, but life carries on as the 30 teams prepare for the quickly approaching regular season slate of games.

The Indians, down eleven players from their organization, have continued on without some of the bigger names from their roster, including Francisco Lindor, Carlos Santana, and Andrew Miller. Despite the vacancies, the show must go on and the Tribe has put together a good stretch of play with their depleted roster, winning three straight over the weekend and four of their last five contests overall.

But with the good, generally comes the bad, and there was plenty of both over the course of the week. Read More

Countdown to Opening Day – 21

In 1998, Cleveland retired the number 21 in honor of longtime Tribe member Bob Lemon, whose transition from a position player to a quality starting pitcher led to seven trips to the Midsummer Classic, a leading role in the 1948 and 1954 American League champion Indians teams, and ultimately, a spot in Cooperstown in the Hall of Fame.

But while Lemon last wore the number on the field as a player with the Indians in 1958, several big names would honor the work that he had done in the jersey with quality careers in a Cleveland uniform in the years to come. Read More

Each year, teams head to their respective homes in Arizona and Florida with several goals in mind, including making sure all players are adequately prepared for the season, resolving all position battles before breaking camp, and ensuring as few players as possible suffer lingering or season-ending injuries.

The latter has become an issue for the Cleveland Indians due to the status of second baseman Jason Kipnis. Read More

Jackson Back and Looking to Nab Utility Outfield Spot With Tribe

March 12, 2017 |

The Cleveland Indians are going to need one extra outfielder and perhaps two when the regular season starts in April.

Right field is the only spot among the three positions currently fully settled. Lonnie Chisenhall will roam the spot when the opposition sends a right-hander to the mound, while it will be Brandon Guyer who will take over against an opposing lefty. That outfield position is known and well-manned.

The other two spots in the Tribe outfield have question marks. Tyler Naquin, who finished third in last year’s American League Rookie of the Year balloting, has done nothing this spring to suggest he is in danger of losing his spot in center field. However, he mostly plays against right-handed pitchers and was used in a platoon last year. His platoon partner was Rajai Davis, who is now gone to the Oakland Athletics. There is a door open there.

The World Baseball Classic is now well underway and if you are a fan of the Cleveland Indians, you are likely struggling with the Team USA roster spot devoted to Tribe reliever Andrew Miller.

Indians pitchers who have attempted to participate in the exhibition have not always fared well, either in their preparation leading up to playing, or in their regular season results that followed their play in the multi-country tournament. Given the significance that Miller has to the Indians bullpen, those concerns are merited. Read More
