• At Fangraphs, Jeff Sullivan ranks depth around Major League Baseball. The Indians fare very well, coming in at fourth, behind the Red Sox, Cardinals and Dodgers. But as Sullivan points out, a good deal of this depends on Gavin Floyd's elbow.
• ICYMI, Gavin Floyd injured his elbow again and could miss the entire 2015 season. Maybe he'll be back in time for the ALCS.
• One more fun-to-watch pitcher who won't be pitching for a very long time:
Losing one of the most underrated pitchers in the AL is a tough blow for the Blue Jays, who have dreams of contending this season.
• Let's Go Tribe's #10 Indians prospect has started to generate praise much more lofty (and important, sorry community):
One more note from Francona: said 23-year-old SS Erik Gonzalez is seeing his body mature, went so far as to call him an "elite prospect."— August Fagerstrom (@AugustF_MLB) March 10, 2015
Hopefully, this is the "Evan Longoria" definition of elite and not the "Joe Flacco" one.
