GIOVANNY URSHELA RUMORS

In Urshela We Trust?

There are some questions when discussing exactly who will regularly man third base for the Cleveland Indians in 2016. The most logical choice right now is the slick-fielding Giovanny Urshela, who at age 24 will most likely be given the opportunity to open the season at the position. Yes, a guy like Todd Frazier would have been a huge addition to the Tribe to play third base in...

Could Urshela Be the Key To Improving the Defense?

The solution to the defensive woes of 2014 might be closer than expected, well at least for third base. Giovanny Urshela, 23, first arrived in the Indians system in 2009. He was never really anything super impressive, aside from his superb caliber defense. He struck out too much, didn’t walk enough, and didn’t provide much power in his swing. He’s always had a decent slugging...
