Carlos Moncrief & The Indians 40 Man Roster Inflexibility

Yesterday, the Indians designated long time prospect, Carlos Moncrief, for assignment to make room for Giovanni Soto and Michael Martinez on the 40 man roster (T.J. House was also taken off the 40 man roster by moving him from the 15 to the 60 Day DL). Moncrief was never a top prospect, but he was a nice story and has some solid strengths. Drafted initially in 2007 by the Phillies...

Moncrief Using Akron as a Time of Self Reflection

It’s been a bumpy season for Carlos Moncrief. After having a phenomenal spring training with the Tribe, and almost making the 25-man roster on opening day, Moncrief has been spending time down in Double-A Akron with the RubberDucks to try and turn his season around. Moncrief, 26, was drafted by the Indians in the fourteenth round of the 2008 draft. He’s spent eight seasons now...

Cleveland Indians outfield prospect Carlos Moncrief had his share of “Wow” moments in 2014. He had 22 of them to be exact.

Moncrief becomes household name with kitchen catch

A catch in the kitchen has made Carlos Moncrief a household name. The Cleveland minor leaguer has drawn all sorts of attention after a nifty set of pictures from a spring training game against Cincinnati.

Cleveland Indians outfielder Carlos Moncrief had some very odd and out-of-place scenery as a backstop as he chased down a fly ball during a recent Cleveland Indians spring training game at Goodyear Ballpark in Goodyear, Ariz. (wonder how they came up with the name of the stadium). As you can plainly […]The post Optical illusion created by kitchen ad on Indians’...

See, the Indians play their spring-training ball in Goodyear, Ariz., at a ballpark that has apparently rented out a sizable portion of its outfield wall to a home/appliance company. The company opted to cover that ad space with a massive photo of a kitchen, which served...

Will Carlos Moncrief Ever Make It?

While the title to this article may seem insulting to a 25 year old man who has been working hard his whole life to make it to the Major Leagues, but it is a legitimate query. The minor leagues are filled with players who at one point had great expectations, but somehow remain in the minors during the prime of their career. While some of these MiLB vets, like the Twins' Sam Deduno who...
