2013 IBI Positional Rankings: The Left-handed starters
We continue with our 2013 prospect coverage here at the IBI with a look at the left-handed starters in the Indians system. The Indians have not had a suitable left-handed starting pitching option in their rotation since they traded Cliff Lee in July of 2009, and that is still the case as the Indians will likely go into the 2013 season with an all right-handed starting rotation. Tony looks at what left-handed starting options are available to the Indians in the future and breaks down the future and potential for the likes of Elvis Araujo, T.J. House, Luis Lugo, Ryan Merritt, Shawn Morimando, Matt Packer, Mike Rayl, Giovanni Soto, and several others.

Numbers show Myers could be a solid addition for Indians
When the IBI's Jeff Ellis first heard that the Indians had signed right-hander Brett Myers his initial response was that he should be a guy who eats innings and not do much else. After spending all of last season in the bullpen Jeff and others kind of overlooked him as a starting option for 2013; however, after Jeff did his usual research he found that Myers could be a pitcher that adds great value for the Indians in 2013.
