Indians' Boone Logan: Finds new role in Tribe bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Logan will be used to lighten the load on fellow lefty Andrew Miller and limit the latter's exposure to right-handed hitters, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Logan gives Francona an experienced southpaw who held left-handed batters to a .142 average (.477 OPS) last season with Colorado. The veteran is entering his 12th major league season after notching a career-high 27 holds with the Rockies last year. He's expected to handle a heavy workload for the Indians in 2017, but with Miller in the way, Boone, who has 50 holds over his last 126 appearances, may see a slight dip in hold opportunities.

Indians' Mike Clevinger: Not in mix for bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager Terry Francona says Clevinger is not in the mix for a bullpen role and that his development as a starter is more important, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Francona previously stated that Clevinger was a candidate for the bullpen, but more likely to open 2017 as a starter with Triple-A Columbus. Nonetheless, it appears the 26-year-old righty will be exclusively developed as a starter this spring and serve as rotation depth going forward. Cleveland has a strong rotation heading into the season, but any injury could open the door for Clevinger, who went 1-3 with a 5.93 ERA in ten major league starts last year.

Indians' Bryan Shaw: Tossing football to refine cutter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Shaw has been throwing a football to help reinforce his mechanics for his cutter, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Over the past two seasons, Shaw has completely ditched any type of fastball other than his cutter. According to FanGraphs, he threw it on a career-high 81.5 percent of his pitches (by far the most of any pitcher in MLB) last year with an average velocity of 93.4 mph. The Indians' reliever appeared in 75 games last season and his career-high 25 holds left him just three shy of tying for the AL lead in that category. Shaw is in line for another hefty workload in 2017, and owners can expect fantasy-worthy numbers similar to those he's put up over the past three seasons in Cleveland.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Taking BP indoors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley (shoulder) is taking normal batting practice pitching at an indoor cage Friday after previously being restricted to a soft-toss program, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The outfielder's timetable remains up in the air, and a need to rehab into the season looks highly possible. Still, the fact he's taking cuts off live pitches offers a step in the right direction. In the waning rounds of a mixed fantasy draft, owners still can take a logical chance on at least a partial season from the 2014 AL MVP candidate.

Indians' Tyler Krieger: Chooses WBC over spring camp with confidence
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Krieger believes playing in the World Baseball Classic will be more beneficial to him than remaining in Arizona for spring training with the Indians, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports

Krieger will miss valuable spring training time while playing in the WBC, but he believes the experience of playing alongside some of the world's best baseball players will be worth it. "I'm going to be getting good at-bats out there and getting ready for the season," Krieger said. "So once I get back from the tournament, which could be any time, I'll be prepared for the Indians just as well as if I was here." Selected by the Indians in the fourth round of the 2015 draft, Krieger began last season at Low-A Lake County and at High-A Lynchburg. For the season as a whole, the organization's No. 18 prospect batted .299 with five home runs, 58 RBI and 21 stolen bases.
