Here’s to more good than bad this week!
Cleveland Baseball Team News
Cleveland’s Opening Day roster looks complete | indians.com
From Mandy Bell:
Starting pitchers (5): Shane Bieber, Zach Plesac, Aaron Civale, Logan Allen, Triston McKenzie
No one had to wonder how the top three spots in Cleveland’s rotation would shake out, but the last two openings became quite a battle. Allen was the highlight of the Indians’ camp and pitched his way into the rotation. Because the Indians are going to utilize a four-man rotation in April, McKenzie likely will start the season in the bullpen.

Congrats to Ka'ai Tom as it looks like he has made the A's team. Tom has to stay on the active roster all season or be offered back to the #Indians. https://t.co/WsjBtyKmaq— Indians Prospective (@indiansPro) March 29, 2021
