Indians' Jason Kipnis: Participating in shoulder-strengthening program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Ronny Rodriguez: In hunt for utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is one of three candidates in the race for the team's utility role on the bench, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Rodriguez is competing for the job against Michael Martinez and Erik Gonzalez, both of whom had stints with the Tribe last season. Although the 24-year-old Rodriguez is the long shot, the coaches are reportedly keeping a close eye on all the possible options. Rodriguez hit .258/.293/.400 with 10 homers, 59 RBI and scored 48 runs for Triple-A Columbus last season.

Indians' Austin Jackson: Hitting without restrictions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Carlos Carrasco: Will get heavy dose of innings this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Greg Allen: Gaining valuable experience at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is at big league camp solely to gain experience, and will be begin the 2017 season in the minors, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Allen stole 45 bases, scored 119 runs and posted an .830 OPS between High-A Lynchburg and Double-A Akron last season. While considered an important part of Cleveland's future, the 23-year-old still has a few steps to climb before he makes a splash in the fantasy world. Allen should garner attention in dynasty formats, and is worth watching as a possible late-season add in standard leagues.
