News
Clevinger is a candidate for a bullpen role, but is more likely to begin 2017 as a starter for Triple-A Columbus, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Indians' manager Terry Francona said Clevinger arrived this spring with a much stronger lower half. There have been multiple reports that the 26-year-old righty is already hitting 100 MPH with his fastball early in camp. Clevinger got his first taste of the majors last year when he appeared in 17 games which included 10 starts that garnered unimpressive results. However, as evidenced by his 11-1 record and 9.4 K/9 ration at Triple-A in 2016, Clevinger is not far from making an impact at the MLB level. He should be one of the first options to join the Indians rotation if such a need arises.

News
Santana and his manager Terry Francona have discussed getting the slugger some outfield reps later this spring, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

Santana, who's expected to split time with Edwin Encarnacion between first base and designated hitter, reached out to Francona to express his willingness to play outfield. Under the current arrangement, Santana would be the odd-man out when the Tribe visits NL parks for interleague play. His at-bat total would get a slight boost if he can manage to play outfield during the team's four stops at NL venues in 2017.

Injuries
Shoulder - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 11/4/16)
News
Sources say the Indians have no certainty for when Brantley (shoulder) will debut this season, despite the optimism offered by general manager Mike Chernoff and other officials, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Heyman suggests 2017 is a lot like 2016, in that Cleveland is hoping Brantley can make significant progress. His complex surgeries and recovery should force fantasy owners to express similar caution, though as his price craters, it'll be hard to pass on the talented bat, for whatever portion of the season he plays.

News
The Indians' medical and training staff has incorporated a shoulder-strengthening program into Kipnis' spring routine, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Kipnis did not participate in fielding drills during Monday morning's workout as the team decided to give him a lighter workload. Although the All-Star second baseman wasn't hindered last year, he has dealt with nagging shoulder woes in previous seasons. There's been no official word that Kipnis is experiencing any shoulder issues now, but it's worth noting this new maintenance program.

News
Kluber said he's planning to take the mound on Opening Day, though manager Terry Francona said if Kluber isn't ready, the Indians might delay his debut, Chris Assenheimer of the Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Kluber isn't injured, but Cleveland wants to limit him this spring considering the right-hander has logged more than 700 innings in the last three years, including the postseason. Perhaps he'll miss a handful of starts during the season even if healthy, though despite concerns over his recent workloads, he's still one of fantasy's best starting pitchers.

News
Anderson, who underwent an arthroscopic debridement of his right elbow in November, is in the race for one of the last remaining bullpen spots on the big league roster, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

Anderson appeared in 19 games for the Tribe last season, in nine of which he was the starting pitcher. He struggled his way to a 6.68 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 60.2 innings while opposing hitters racked up a .333 BAA. Nearly all of Anderson's professional career has been spent as a starter, and the righty has proven he can deal effectively. In 468.2 minor-league innings, the 26-year-old who was drafted by the Indians in 2011, owns a solid 3.46 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 7.1 K/9. Although he's being considered for a relief role, Anderson is best-suited to begin the season in the rotation at Triple-A Columbus while serving as depth for the MLB starting staff.

News
Carrasco will receive a heavy workload in the upcoming Cactus League, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Carrasco missed the postseason after sustaining a fractured right hand last September. Due to the time missed down the stretch, combined with the righty's stint on the disabled list between May and June (left hamstring), Carrasco was limited to 146.1 innings in 2016. This spring, Cleveland plans on being aggressive with Carrasco's Cactus League workload. Manager Terry Francona said the plan will be to ramp up his innings quickly to make up for lost time. "You'll probably see him lead our team in innings [this spring]," Francona mentioned. This latest development is a shift from the cautious approach the team was originally scheduled to take with the 29-year-old, but it sure sounds like fantasy owners will get a good look before deciding whether or not to invest in Carrasco this season.

Injuries
Knee - Probable for start of season (Updated - 2/20/17)
News
Jackson (left knee) is no longer restricted with his hitting, but is still gradually working his way up to outfield-specific agility drills, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The thought has been that Jackson could be ready to race for an Opening Day roster spot, but that looks cloudier each week he continues to lag behind the other outfielders in camp. Manager Terry Francona said the veteran still has a ways to go before he'll be ready to compete with the group. "The biggest thing is he has to be able to make his cuts -- reacting," Francona said. "He's a good center fielder. That's part of his skill set. So, asking him to do it before he's ready isn't fair to anybody." Even if healthy and on the 25-man roster, Jackson is best-suited for deeper leagues at best.

News
Merritt will likely begin the 2017 campaign as a starting pitcher for Triple-A Columbus, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Merritt appeared in four regular season games for the Tribe in 2016, but only one of those was as a starter (he also picked up a start in the post season). With no open spots in the rotation, the only option for Merritt to make the Opening Day roster would be as a reliever. However, the 24-year-old southpaw is a natural starter, and the wise decision is to not derail him from his projected path. Merritt will almost certainly pick up a handful of spot starts for the Indians in 2017, but projects to have a much bigger role in the foreseeable future. The crafty Merritt is well-suited for dynasty drafts.
