Then & Now: Mike McDade
The IBI's Steve Orbanek returns with his latest edition of Then & Now, which looks at switching-hitting first baseman Mike McDade this week. McDade was acquired this winter by the Indians after the Toronto Blue Jays designated him for assignment. McDade seems to offer a lot of intriguing skills moving forward and since he is a member of the Tribe's 40-man roster, it appears as if the team holds him in high regard. So, just what does the future hold for McDade? Steve ponders after the jump...

Then & Now: Chen-Chang Lee
Coming off of major surgery, Chen-Chang Lee is one of many Indians pitchers that is now somewhat of a question mark heading into the 2013 season. Lee was once one of the most dominant relievers in the Indians system, but what can be expected from him as he makes his way back from the surgery? The IBI's Steve Orbanek recaps Lee's career in this week's edition of Then & Now.

Then & Now: Austin Adams
Just one year ago, Austin Adams was one of the most talked about prospects in the Indians farm system. The hard-throwing right-hander had just completed a brilliant 2011 campaign, and he seemed poised for another... until injuries hit. Now, it's hard to say what lies ahead for Adams, but he's certainly not the prospect he was a year ago. What exactly is in store for Adams? The IBI's Steve Orbanek opines when he looks at Adams' career in this week's edition of Then & Now.

Then & Now: Rob Bryson
Rob Bryson has been creating some buzz this winter thanks to his outstanding performance in the Puerto Rican Winter League, but he is hardly ever mentioned when discussions arise about Major League relief pitching options. What does the future hold for Bryson, and does the right-handed pitcher have a future with the Indians? The IBI's Steve Orbanek looks back on Bryson's career in this week's edition of Then & Now.

Washington is focused on a comeback in 2013
Some people work to live, while others live to work. Cleveland Indians’ centerfielder LeVon Washington prefers the latter. After a disappointing 2012 campaign that was cut very short because of a hip injury, Washington is hard at work this offseason and has focused 100% of his effort on making a big comeback in 2013.

McGuiness has had a solid minor league career, but what does the future hold for the 24-year-old left-handed hitter? Does he have a chance at sticking with the Tribe? Steve reviews McGuiness' career after the jump.

Then & Now: Trey Haley
The IPI's Steve Orbanek returns with this week's edition of Then & Now. Steve looks at right-hander Trey Haley this week, who just completed his fifth season in the Indians system.

The IPI's Steve Orbanek returns with this week's edition of Then & Now. Steve takes a look at the career of Adam Abraham, who just completed his fifth season in the Indians system. Because of his right-handed power and versatility, Abraham is somewhat of an intriguing option, but is there any guarantee that Abraham will ever get a chance to prove himself on the Major League level?

Then & Now: Jesus Aguilar
Jesus Aguilar just completed his fifth season as a member of one of the Cleveland Indians affiliates. The powerful first baseman remains one of the most popular prospects in the Tribe's system, but it's still no foregone conclusion that he will one day be a member of the Indians Major League roster. The IPI's Steve Orbanek looks back at the hulking slugger's career in this week's edition of Then & Now.
