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. As we really dig in for some cold weather in the Cleveland area, some may say the Indians offseason has been just as frigid with the lack of many moves. The IBI's Tony Lastoria talks about the difference between last year's spending spree and this year's closed checkbook, explains the true reason why teams don't want to lose a first round pick for a "qualified" free agent and much more.

Clearly that did not go according to plan as Bauer struggled from the get-go. 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.

IBI Power Poll: Should the Indians sign Ubaldo Jimenez?
The Cleveland Indians roster looks fairly complete, but there are still question-marks surrounding the starting rotation. Will the current rotation options of Justin Masterson, Zach McAllister, Corey Kluber, Danny Salazar, Shaun Marcum, Carlos Carrasco, Josh Tomlin and Trevor Bauer be enough, or are the Indians planning on making a splash by re-signing Ubaldo Jimenez, once the market spits him back out.
