Happy Tuesday, everyone!
Indians 4, Diamondbacks 3
Leonys Martin notched another hit, Trayce Thompson hit a double, and Trevor Bauer went 4.0 innings (he gave up 2 runs but that’s not a big deal at this stage). And again, thankfully, no one was hurt.
The Indians’ current outfield situation is “Leonys Martin and...”, so every little bit counts for players trying to make the Opening Day roster. Trayce Thompson is one of those players, often overlooked for the likes of Greg Allen, Jake Bauers, and Tyler Naquin.
Around the league
