Here’s to a great week!
Indians 9, Reds 9
Ties are fun! Corey Kluber struggled, giving up five runs on six hits over 3 2⁄3 innings. It was Kluber’s second start of the spring and really it’s not something to get worked up over yet. Carlos Santana had two hits and now sports a 1.166 OPS.
From Mandy Bell:
Just as the Indians move closer to naming their three starting outfielders by eliminating another candidate, the team may be nearing another addition that will keep all attention on the outfield.
Before the Indians’ 9-9 tie with the Reds on Sunday, the club informed outfielder Brandon Barnes that he will not be making the Opening Day roster and reassigned him to Minor League camp, leaving five other options at Spring Training for the corner-outfield spots.
Jake Bauers, Greg Allen, Tyler Naquin, Jordan Luplow and Trayce Thompson are the remaining outfield options for the Tribe, with a stronger emphasis being applied to the first three. But now, Cleveland could have Carlos Gonzalez – who MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez confirmed Saturday night signed with the Indians -- thrown into the mix in the next day or two.
First, riding a scooter downtown, now this!
