Optioned RHP Jake Dittler, RHP Edward Mujica, RHP Brian Slocum, and LHP Jason Stanford to Buffalo (AAA)
While the Indians may have some depth issues in the middle infield, they don't have any problems with pitching depth. Mujica and Slocum will be Buffalo's bullpen, while Stanford and Dittler should be in the rotation.
Optioned 1B Michael Aubrey and LHP Rafael Perez to Akron (AA)
If Aubrey can just stay on the field this season, it'll be a victory.
Re-assigned C Javi Herrera, LHP Tony Sipp, and LHP Jeremy Sowers to minor-league camp
These three were non-roster invitees, so the terminology is a bit different. Sowers is definitely going to Buffalo, and Herrera should be Akron's starting catcher. Sipp had an outstanding camp and might see the majors this season.
