Injury concerns for Bourn; Reds rally over Indians, 5-4
With the luck of the Irish on his sleeve, a two-run double by Reds minor leaguer Steve Selsky to the green outfield sealed the contest over the Indians Monday afternoon, 5-4.

Cleveland also received injury news on Michael Bourn, leaving his Opening Day status in question. IBI Tribe beat reporter Jim Berdysz shares his thoughts and recaps the action.

Command Statistics: A sortie into the unknown
Corey Kluber and Zach McAllister are, at first glance, quite similar pitchers. Both were acquired in a trade for a role player, neither were widely-heralded prospects, and their 2013 ERA's were almost identical. But they are actually quite different when you look at their strikeout and walk rates, and in the research that the IBI's John Grimm collected they appear to be different in not just throwing strikes but hitting the targets give by the catcher.

Indians sweep split-squad bill against Cubs and Giants

Join the IBI's Jake Dungan as he provides thoughts and highlights on both games.
