We are just two days away from opening day. With that in mind it is time to unveil the first of four articles breaking down the rosters and previewing each of the Indians' four full season affiliates. Today we kick things off with Double-A Akron, and Jim Piascik previews the team and what Indians and Aeros fans may be in store for this season.
It is no secret that the Indians are looking for outfield help after working out Vladimir Guerrero and trying to trade for Bobby Abreu last week. Even though the Indians have announced their Opening Day roster, the Indians are still looking for help to fill the left field void. Jeff Ellis runs down a list of possible options the Indians may consider acquiring.
Indians minor league spring training is officially over. Here is the recap from the final full day of action on Saturday as the Indians held three intraquad games and had close to 80 players in action. We also get a glimpse at what Zach MacPhee is up to and why he is not opening with a full season team, what the plans are for Jared Goedert and Jeremie Tice, and more.
The official rosters for all four full season rosters should be officially released sometime on Monday afternoon, but Tony provides the 411 on what the four rosters should be when they are released. A lot of players are being pushed back a level because of all the Major League depth at Triple-A and some pitchers are dinged up. All the details are inside!
We are just four days until Opening Day, and with spring training wrapping up the Indians are busy making a lot of last minute roster decisions. Tony looks at all the activity the Indians have had of late looking for an outfielder, explains why sending Chisenhall down is not a bad thing, gives the 411 on new bullpen pickup Jairo Asencio, and lots more!
