Happy Tuesday, everyone! Here’s to more games and still no injuries!

Indians 6, Brewers 7 Recap | Box Score

Dan Otero blew a save in the third inning, Eric Haase currently holds an OPS of 2.857, and the Indians dropped game three of the spring to the Milwaukee Brewers. On a positive note, Josh Tomlin picked up a pair of strikeouts in his two inning spring debut and Francisco Mejia homered in his only at-bat of the day.

Tribe news

Tomlin confident in Tribe’s pitching depth | MLB

Tomlin knows that the baseball season is a marathon and not a sprint (along with many other “the road is long” cliches) and that to finish on top, you’ll need more than the 25 men on the Opening Day roster. Fortunately for Cleveland, the depth at the pitching position is one of their strengths and it has been for the past few seasons.

Naquin looking to force Tribe’s hand for spot | MLB

Speaking of depth, the outfield. There are so many players trying to fill so few spots in the Cleveland outfield, inevitably some will not make the cut come Opening Day. Tyler Naquin is doing everything in his power to not be one of those cut. Side note, since I was at the ballpark for the inside-the-park-walk-off-home-run a few seasons ago, I am rooting for Naquin to break camp with the team, however unlikely that may seem.
