Countdown to Opening Day – 17 days
A pair of utility men donned the number 17 for the Indians during the 2019 season. Both were new faces to the ball club last year looking for a chance to stick, but both whiffed and are no longer with the organization.
The Cleveland Indians acquired utility man Andrew Velazquez on Wednesday from the Tampa Bay Rays for international bonus pool money of an undisclosed amount.
To make room for the newly acquired Velazquez, the Indians designated his former Durham Bulls teammate, pitcher Chih-Wei Hu, for assignment.
