Roberto Perez was the star of the show in the AAA/AA game, belting a pair of home runs, while driving in three. The great Delvi Cid also managed a perfect three-hit performance. In the single A game, Dillon Howard pitched three pretty solid innings, and hopefully gained a bit of momentum heading into the 2013 season. With many pondering the term bust already, Howard needs to show some continuity this year to regain traction in the system. Join Arthur Kinney with Sunday's minor league wrap.

Ubaldo Jimenez took the hill on Sunday afternoon for the Cleveland Indians in one of his last outings before the Indians break for camp at the end of the week. Jimenez was nothing short of spectacular in the outing, and while it's hard to look too much into a spring training start, it was good to see Jimenez do something good for a change. Join IBI's Arthur Kinney with the latest Indians' spring training recap.

It's hard not to be somewhat concerned with what happened on the Goodyear Ballpark mound on Thursday, especially in regards to big club fourth starter Zach McAllister. He struggled in his outing as did fellow righty Trevor Bauer who ran into some trouble late in the game. The IB's Arthur Kinney recaps the the action...

It was a tale of two Brett Myers in Goodyear on Sunday as the Tribe fell to the Texas Rangers 7-6. Was it a symptom of Myers' attempt to return to starting after a year in the bullpen, is it a sign that there may have been a reason the Astros put him there, or just a really bad inning that happened to come at the end of his outing? Join the IBI's Arthur Kinney as he looks at this and other issues in greater detail from the first day of 4:05 Cleveland time spring ball...

Every international sports tournament has it: The Group of Death. A group so evenly matched and so stacked with talent from top to bottom that not even the most supremely talented seleccion sucked into its unforgiving vortex can consider themselves assured of advancement. That's what Team USA found themselves in over the weekend in their opening round of play, but survived and have moved on to the second round in Miami.

When you play 198 (hopefully more) games in a season, you are not going to win them all, and the Indians encountered their first taste of defeat in 2013 on Tuesday. However, this is still Spring Training, where the final result never tells the whole story of the day. Here to examine that story in further depth is the IBI's Arthur Kinney...

Eze's not here?!
