Orbiting Cleveland: Could Cody Anderson be 2014's Salazar?
There was arguably no better Indians story in 2013 than the rise of Danny Salazar. The right-hander was electric at times, and he also gave the fan base new hope for the future? So, with that in mind, who has a chance to be 2014's version of Salazar? Perhaps it could be Cody Anderson, who was just dominant at High-A Carolina last season. Ironically enough, Anderson's seems to be trending in the exact same direction as Salazar. Join the IBI's Steve Orbanek as he opines in the latest edition of Orbiting Cleveland.

Asdrubal Cabrera and problematic bouncebacks
After a 2013 Wild Card game performance in which Asdrubal Cabrera went 0-for-4 with a strikeout and the single most deflating play of the season, a double play in the bottom of the 4th with the bases loaded, the phrase ‘bounce back’ was not an appropriate word for Cleveland audiences. But the IBI's John Grimm explains in great detail how Cabrera's final 2013 numbers were affected by some poor luck and how he just may be in line for a bounce back year in 2014.

If you want to find one of the key reasons for Cleveland's big turnaround from 2012 to 2013, just look at the upgrades on the bench -- like the addition of Mike Aviles.
