The IBI's 2013 Indians Top 60 Prospect countdown continues on with first baseman Jesus Aguilar. Aguilar is a guy that a lot of Indians fans and the organization themselves are excited about because good right-handed power is hard to find. He certainly has that and then some, and is arguably the best power prospect in the entire system. Tony talks about that power potential and...
The Cleveland Indians scored six runs in two innings on Thursday afternoon to give them a 6-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants in support of starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez on Thursday afternoon.
Jimenez, the enigmatic starter that the Indians acquired at the trade deadline in 2011, easily had his best start of the spring. The Indians right-hander went four innings when...
Indians outfielder Michael Brantley is among 11 players to sign one-year contracts with Cleveland.
Brantley will start in left field following the team's signing of free agent center fielder Michael Bourn. He resumes workouts Thursday after he was spiked last week during an exhibition game and needed 15 stitches. Manager Terry Francona said Brantley could be playing in games...

The Spring Training season is officially two weeks old, and the Cleveland Indians are sitting pretty with a 10-5 record, which is good for third place in the Cactus League. 10-5. Pretty nice, eh? But what exactly does it mean?
For most, the answer is simple — nothing.
Yes, the record does literally mean nothing. Spring Training wins do not transfer to the regular season, and they...
New Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona believes that Jason Giambi is a manager-in-waiting.
Every player who does not start the year on the 25-man roster will be out to prove that they belong in the major leagues. That's the goal for every minor leaguer after all: to make it to The Show.
Some players, however, have more on the line than others. For the ten players in this article, 2013 will be a tipping point in their careers. They could either put themselves firmly...
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Jason Giambi thought he would be a manager this season. Instead, he's still playing.
Giambi drove in two runs and Justin Masterson outpitched Hyun-Jin Ryu on Wednesday, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
After interviewing for the Colorado Rockies' managerial opening -- which went to Walt Weiss -- the 42-year...
I just can help but cringe when I say the name Ubaldo Jimenez.
I was never a fan of the deal that brought him here, and that certainly hasn’t changed over the past 1 ½ years. When he signed my daughter’s baseball last year, I honestly thought, “Holy cow, he just ruined that ball. If I throw it, it’s going to hit the dirt a foot in front of the plate, or end up somewhere...

The latter match featured the first two Indians to play in this year's classic. The wildness inherent in these early round games featuring low level pitchers was evident...
