The Final Pink Slips

Optioned RHP Jason Davis and OF Jason Dubois to Buffalo (AAA)

Dubois put up great numbers in Spring Training, and will get an opportunity to play every day in Buffalo. The Indians finally made a decision on Davis' role: he's a reliever from now on.

Designated IF Brandon Phillips and RHP Kazuhito Tadano for Assignment

Kaz Tadano for Danny Graves? I wouldn't make that trade, especially since Tadano has an option left. We'll see if the Indians can get anything for Tadano: the prudent thing to do is to package the two together to get something useful.

Assigned RHP Steve Karsay, C Einar Diaz, and C Tim Laker to minor-league camp

Karsay and Diaz will hang around Winter Haven waiting for a phone call from another club. Laker is probably Buffalo's starting catcher.

Purchased the Contracts of RHP Danny Graves and OF Todd Hollandsworth

Most of Hollandsworth's playing time should come via pinch hits and the occasional start in right field. Graves is the seventh man in the bullpen, which means he'll pick up the garbage innings to start with...hopefully.
