Sun, 26 Feb 2017 13:11:05 EDT

Jason Kipnis tried to play the villain against his hometown Cubs in the World Series last fall.

'Dr. Smooth is back,' but still on a short leash

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 13:17:32 EDT

In the early hours of the Indians' workout on Friday, the cacophony coming from the indoor batting cage at Cleveland's complex came with increased signficance. Inside the batting tunnel stood Michael Brantley, who took a series of normal batting practice swings and sprayed baseballs to the back of the black netting. One of the Tribe's athletic trainers looked on, as did hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo. After the hitting session, Van Burkleo cracked a smile when asked how Brantley's swing looked. "Dr. Smooth is back," Van Burkleo quipped. "He looks good. And the ball's coming off his bat nice."

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 19:04:21 EDT

Lindor shows off 'pancake' glove

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 17:49:00 EDT

Francisco Lindor has been heading out to the practice diamonds with a pair of gloves every morning at Indians camp this spring. In doing so, he has provided a glimpse into why the young shortstop captured both a Gold Glove and Platinum Glove for his defensive work last season.



Indians boast two catchers capable of starting

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 18:33:47 EDT

The Indians feel fortunate to have a pair of catchers who are both capable of serving as a starting option in the big leagues. Given that situation, Roberto Perez will be considered the backup to Yan Gomes only in title. Perez will see his fair share of time behind the plate this season.

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 18:49:10 EDT

Santana willing to play outfield again if needed

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 16:57:52 EDT

Francona fine with rule change for intentional walks

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 17:24:08 EDT

Kipnis has seen Brantley behind the scenes, and understands how difficult things have been for the outfielder.



Young prospects can learn from Naquin

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 18:13:37 EDT

The message delivered to Tyler Naquin at the start of Spring Training a year ago was short and to the point. The Indians had vacancies in the outfield and the young center fielder had a great opportunity to seize one of the jobs with a strong performance in the preseason. Naquin did precisely that, too.



Guyer glad to platoon, play where, when needed

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 15:35:44 EDT

Brandon Guyer believes he can be more than a platoon player, but he understands his role on the Indians' roster. Given his career track record against left-handed pitching, the outfielder will mostly be used as a weapon against southpaws in the upcoming season.

Kipnis on board with Francona's '17 message

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 17:55:18 EDT

Terry Francona stood in front of his entire team on Sunday morning and delivered his message. He is not big on calling team meetings, but he does know the importance of setting the tone for a season with the spring-opening dialogue. This year is different, too, as he was speaking to the reigning American League champions.



Tribe won't rush spring process with Kluber

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 17:20:36 EDT

Indians manager Terry Francona wasted little time in naming ace Corey Kluber as the Opening Day starter in each of the past two springs. This year, expect Francona to take more time to see how the preseason plays out before declaring his starter for the season-opening tilt in Texas.



Allen to close for Tribe; Miller versatile option

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 16:47:38 EDT

With relief ace Andrew Miller now in the fold -- an arm best described as a leverage weapon for Terry Francona -- the manager has altered his tune some on Allen's job title, calling him the closer. But don't be surprised in Miller will show up in the end.



Prospect Allen claims Tribe's 'Warrior Dash'

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 19:25:19 EDT

Every year, not only do manager Terry Francona and his coaches look on, but nearly the entire front-office staff heads to the agility field to watch. For every prospect -- such as outfielder Greg Allen -- all eyes are very much on them.
