Indians release eight minor league pitchers
The Indians have announced the following player releases in minor league camp:
Bellows had been attempting a conversion from third base to the mound, a process he started late last season. Whitenack was a waiver claim the Indians picked up last spring who never panned out. Probably the one player who sticks out to most is the release of Stowell as he always had a lot of hype because of his stuff, but he struggled with injuries, consistency, and with his command, and the writing was on the wall after having been stuck at the Double-A level for three straight seasons.
I had a chance to get to know several of these players over their career and wish them nothing but the best going forward.
