Dear Fausto/Roberto,

Even if you manage to get out of the Dominican Republic sometime this season, good luck earning your job back. There is already stiff competition this spring, and the fact that you aren’t there to defend your starting spot doesn’t help your cause.

If the team announces in their end of the season press conference that their goal is to find your replacement, you probably don’t have much of a chance to make the team the following season. However, as luck may have it, Matt LaPorta still has a lot to play for this spring.

Duncan Paces Tribe To First Cactus League Victory; Indians 3, Royals 2

March 7, 2012 | | One Comment

 

By Mike Brandyberry

The left field carousel will continue to spin for at least a couple more weeks, but early high horse has clearly presented himself in Shelley Duncan.  Duncan’s three run home run in the bottom of the third was all the Tribe needed to defeat the Kansas City Royals, 3-2 in Cactus League play.

Duncan’s bomb was his second three run homer in only four games this spring. With left field a wide open spot pursued by many suitors, Duncan has asserted himself toward the top of the competition. He had two hits on the day and has accumulated four in three exhibition games. He was the only Tribe player to card two hits on the day. Jason Donald, Jose Lopez, Aaron Cunningham and Ezequiel Carrera were the only other Indians to card a hit on the day.

Cunningham Nearing A Make Or Break Spring

When the Indians acquired Aaron Cunningham in a Dec. 16 trade with San Diego, it was with the idea of stocking up on outfielders. In 2011, Cleveland saw all three starting outfielders go down with injury and the club wanted to be sure it had replacements aplenty. Good thing, too, as veteran center fielder Grady Sizemore went down with has annual injury last week and could be lost until July with back surgery.

Masterson Struggles And Tribe Falls; Reds 12, Indians 7

March 6, 2012 |

 

By Mike Brandyberry

I guess this is why they play exhibition games.

A day after Ubaldo Jimenez gave up five runs in the first inning, Justin Masterson allowed six runs in an inning and a third, giving the Reds an early lead and coasting to a 12-7 victory in Goodyear, Arizona. Masterson allowed a run in the first inning before allowing five more while only recording an out in the second inning. Masterson threw 45 pitches, only 25 strikes.

Rocky First Inning Sets Back Tribe; Reds 8, Indians 6

March 4, 2012 |

By Mike Brandyberry

While yesterday’s spring opener featured mostly starters from both the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians, today’s contest looked more like the junior varsity edition of each teams. With no one playing from yesterday’s contest, today’s resulted in a sloppy effort with the Reds winning 8-6. The Reds used a five run first inning to set the tone.

Like so many Ubaldo Jimenez starts a year ago, the disaster started quietly. After retiring the first hitter, a ground ball to Jack Hannahan became an infield hit and then a Russ Canzler error set the table for the onslaught. Miguel Cairo blooped a hit into right field to score two runs, followed by an infield hit by Wilson Valdez in front of the mound to plate another and then a solid single by Willie Harris plated two more, giving the Reds a 5-0 first inning lead.
