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.

Kitchen ad on Indians' outfield wall creates crazy optical illusion

Well that’s, um, odd. 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.

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.
