Join Jim Piascik as he checks in to the action last night and goes Around The Farm.
Here is a listing of Cleveland Indians' players that were released or elected to voluntarily retire over the year. This listing along with all the rest of the final transactions will be located under the "Transactions" tab and under "2012" for easy reference in the future.
