Now after the 2013 season, Masterson has reestablished his effectiveness as a top-of-the-rotation starter, but is he a legitimate ace? The IBI's Jake Dungan speculates in this week's Swinging for the Fences

Possible trade options that can help the Indians bullpen
The Indians bullpen is at a crossroads this offseason. No longer can they rely on Chris Perez, Vinnie Pestano and Joe Smith at the backend of the bullpen like they have the last three years since Perez is gone, Smith is likely gone and Pestano has health concerns. The Indians will likely rely more heavily on Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen, but they are expected to be creative in finding more help for the backend of the bullpen. The IBI's Andy Nichols takes a look at some potential trade targets to fill that need.

Tribe Happenings: Saying goodbye to Ubaldo
Ubaldo Jimenez is expected to decline the qualifying offer that the Indians extended to him this week, and thus will have declined a contract with the Indians for 2014 not once, but twice. The IBI's Tony Lastoria talks about why it is time to move on from Jimenez and how his market may be shaping up. He also talks about why Scott Kazmir was not extended a qualifying offer, runs through some early rumors, explains why Jesus Aguilar has played third base of late, and more.
