The countdown to Opening Day stands at ’14′ and the Cleveland Indians are preparing to return home.
Alas, their latest transactions involve optioning right-handed pitcher Zach McAllister and second baseman Cord Phelps to their Triple-A affiliate Columbus Clippers. In addition, pitcher Chen-Chang Lee and outfielder Trevor Crowe have been re-assigned to minor league camp.
The Cleveland Indians roster stands at 46. With only 31 players presently on the 40-man roster, nine of the remaining 15 non-roster invites are looking at a spot with the team.
