Happy Tuesday, everyone! We’re just a few short days away from an actual Cleveland Indians baseball game!

Tribe news

Lindor strong-arms first full-squad workout | MLB

Remember how Lindor hit a career high 33 home runs in 2017? Well, the star shortstop has arrived in camp bulked up and ready to “finish the thing”.

Allen, Tribe ready to fill Shaw’s shoes in ‘pen | MLB

A lot of Cleveland fans don’t know it yet, but they are going to sorely miss Bryan Shaw this season. Cody Allen and the rest of the relief corps are going to do what they can to fill his 70+ appearance gap this season.

Cleveland Indians’ Terry Francona gives marching orders to Jason Kipnis, Jose Ramirez |

The tl;dr is Kip is going to play 2B, Jose is going to play 3B. I guess that clears that up. At least until Brantley gets hurt and then it looks like Kipnis may move to...left field? I’m confused.

Indians 1B Yonder Alonso changed his swing last year, and maybe changed the course of his career |

It sure would be nice for Alonso to come in and seamlessly take over where Santana left off.
