Bases-loaded walk all Tribe pitchers need in 1-0 shutout
The only scoring in this game came courtesy of Asdrubal Cabrera, who drew a bases-loaded walk off Cubs right-hander Justin Grimm in the bottom of the fourth inning at Goodyear Ballpark. That would prove to be all the Indians hurlers would need on Thursday as the five of them would combine for a 1-0 shutout effort. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he covers all the highlights.

Swinging for the Fences: Pestano the ultimate x-factor in bullpen
Going back to the Indians' promotional campaign of a couple years ago, let's post the question "What if?" During spring training, this simple phrase echoes throughout all the camps in Arizona and Florida as it prefaces many questions regarding the players in camp. The Tribe is no different in 2014. More specifically, what if Vinnie Pestano returns to form in 2014? The IBI's Jake Dungan speculates on how the bullpen would be affected.

Lindor powers Tribe to 6-3 victory over Mariners
Top Indians prospect Francisco Lindor made his presence known to the big league club and its fans by on Sunday by driving in the go-ahead runs with a three-run blast in the seventh inning in a 6-3 win against the Mariners. Meanwhile, Nick Swisher made his 2014 Cactus League debut for the Tribe and Carlos Santana's first official play at third base wasn't all that spectacular. The IBI's Jake Dungan recaps the highlights.

Tribe returns favor with 12-3 blowout win over Cincinnati
If you are a key Indians prospect, you were probably hitting, walking, driving in runs, scoring runs or flashing leather in the field on Thursday as the Indians put a 12-3 shellacking on the Reds at Goodyear Ballpark. Carlos Carrasco earned the win and deservedly so after two perfect innings of work in the third and fourth while the Indians bats came to life in a fury. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he recaps the action.

Swinging for the Fences: The Goon Squad Shuffle
Last season, the four primary utility players for the Tribe not only established an identity for themselves to the point where t-shirts were made and sold to the fans. They also backed it up on the field with consistent offense, versatile defense and clutch hits in some of the biggest moments of the season. Can new members carry on the success of last season? The IBI's Jake Dungan introduces the Goon Squad Shuffle.

Swinging for the Fences: 2013 Indians vs. 2009 Rangers
As players descend upon Goodyear, Arizona, many still wonder who and what the Cleveland Indians are heading into 2014 despite winning 92 games the year before. New Tribe outfielder David Murphy stated earlier this week that this Indians team reminds him of the 2009 Rangers team, which by the way was the year before they won back-to-back pennants. Could the Tribe follow in their steps? The IBI's Jake Dungan speculates.

Swinging for the Fences: Waiting to trade Cabrera
What is the future of Asdrubal Cabrera with the Indians? At the end of last season that, many believed there was no way he would wear an Indians uniform again. Yet here we are at the end of January and he's still with the team and figures to be here when opening day rolls around. Should the Tribe wait to trade him? The IBI's Jake Dungan says better trade opportunities may present themselves during the season.

Swinging for the Fences: Santana at third and roster versatility
This offseason's Winter Ball campaign has been an interesting and exciting one for Tribe fans for two reasons: 1) Jesus Aguilar ('nuff said!) and 2) Carlos Santana has traded the catcher's mitt for a third baseman's glove, a decision that could prove to be beneficial not only for Santana as he searches for a new permanent position, but also for the team as their versatility would only improve with the shift. The IBI's Jake Dungan explains.

Swinging for the Fences: It's now or never for Carlos Carrasco
Here we are heading into the fifth year since the dreaded Cliff Lee trade. But before we say happy anniversary, let's look at this trade and see how it has panned out. The Indians got Lou Marson, Jason Donald and Jason Knapp, who have since moved on due to injury, inconsistency or other reasons. That leaves the centerpiece of the deal, Carlos Carrasco. Can he finally reach his full potential? The IBI's Jake Dungan analyzes.
