Welcome to the first week of the Transaction Rundown. A notable number of transactions went down this week, including a notable one that is scheduled to happen tonight (Trevor Bauer). Join the IBI's Arthur Kinney as he runs down all of the week's player movement within the Indians system.
Today the IBI unveils its first crack at the depth chart for the Cleveland Indians for the coming 2013 season. This depth chart includes the projected lineups, bench, starting rotations and bullpens for every team in the organization from Cleveland to Low-A Lake County, and even the players that should open the season in extended spring training.
Here is a listing of Cleveland Indians' players that were released or elected to voluntarily retire over the year. This listing along with all the rest of the final transactions will be located under the "Transactions" tab and under "2012" for easy reference in the future. Good luck to all of the players who have moved on from the organization!

The Indians lost a long time member of their minor league system today as free agent third baseman/outfielder Jared Goedert agreed to a minor league deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
