The 2014 rotation at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario
The Cleveland Indians potentially lost two major pieces to their 2013 rotation this offseason, but have addressed the situation with both internal options, and an intriguing minor league free agent signing.

Tribe Happenings: Payroll commitments have limited the Indians
With the new year here and the 2014 season just weeks away, and before we know it the trucks will be leaving Cleveland for spring training in Goodyear.

Though there is still hope for Bauer, Jim Piascik dove into Bauer's stats to see how other pitchers with similar seasons fared in the years ahead, giving a possible glimpse into what the future holds for the right-hander.
