Indians sweep split-squad bill against Cubs and Giants
Technically, the Indians were only at half strength in both Scottsdale and Mesa on Sunday as far as their big league roster is concerned with only half of them travelling with each team in the split-squad effort against the Giants and Cubs, but that didn't slow them down as the Tribe emerged victorious in both matches. Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he provides thoughts and highlights on both games.

Indians and White Sox reach 2-2 stalemate in Glendale
Jake Dungan started his week out here in Arizona with a tie back in Peoria last Saturday when the Indians and Padres played to a 4-4 draw after 10 innings, so it might as well end with one as the Tribe and White Sox ended their bout at Camelback Ranch in Glendale tied at two at the end of regulation play, opting not to play extra innings. Join him as he recaps another tie game by the Tribe in less than a week.

Tribe offense explodes late in third straight victory
In a similar sequence of events to Wednesday's victory over the Padres, the Indians played a close game against the division-rival Royals at Goodyear Ballpark up until the seventh inning, where the Tribe bats came to life with a fury to score nine runs in the seventh and eighth innings to plate nine runs and bury Kansas City 12-6.

Q&A: Ross Atkins talks about Minor League spring training
For anyone who has been to minor league spring training the first thing you notice is the abundance of players in camp as there are close to 180 players at any given time. But even with players pouring out of the fields like water in a flooded stream, things somehow, someway run smoothly every day as players move from field to field, from drill to drill, and from coach to coach with near precision. The IBI's Tony Lastoria sat down with Farm Director Ross Atkins last year and talked about everything that goes into minor league spring training, the decision-making process and so much more.

Cleveland reassigns 12 to minor league camp
Cleveland announced its first cuts from the major league camp Wednesday as it reassigned 12 players down to minor league camp. No one was actually cut from the team, though, as the cuts were just in terms of the major league roster.

Santana leads the way in 12-7 win over Padres
Carlos Santana, deeply entrenched in a competition with Lonnie Chisenhall to win the everyday third baseman job, made his case Tuesday, helping the Indians run away with a 12-7 win at the expense of the San Diego Padres. Not only did Santana blast a two-run home run in the first inning, the catcher-turned-utility man looked very comfortable at third base and made two exceptional plays in the process. Join Rob Fuller as he reports from Goodyear.

Bauer's command struggles lead to 8-3 loss
Trevor Bauer needed to impress on Monday following Josh Tomlin's performance on Sunday, but he struggled mightily through his two innings, leading to an 8-3 loss at the hands of the Anaheim Angels. With the race for the fifth spot in the Indians rotation heating up, Bauer's stock may have dropped a bit due to issues that have plagued him throughout his short career.

The Indians have gotten off to a brilliant start in Spring Training this year as the team currently owns a 9-1 record and is atop the Cactus League standings.

The Release of a Dream
Today we re-post an article that originally ran in May of 2008 that provides details into the release process in the minors and the emotions that players go through. That year the IBI's Tony Lastoria talked to three Indians minor league players that were recently released to get an understanding of the process and the whirlwind of emotions that follow. With the first full squad workout in the minors set for Monday, this is a fitting time to post this again as close to 15-20 players will be released in a few weeks.

It wasn't a good start for Indians minor league right-hander Travis Banwart, but that wouldn't stop Tribe bats and bullpen from going quietly.
