Clevelinks, February 4: Pronk Fallout and Canzler DFAed Again

Welcome to Clevelinks, a new feature recapping the previous day or weekend’s Indians news and Wahoo’s on First commentary, as well as the best Tribe analysis from other sites.

Indians News

  • Could the Indians’ streak of arbitration settlements be coming to an end? Hearings begin this week, and GM Chris Antonetti isn’t sure if the Tribe will be able to settle with Mike Aviles to avoid the team’s first arbitration case in 22 years.
  • Poor Russ Canzler has been designated for assignment again. This time the Yankees DFAed him to make room for the just-signed Travis Hafner. Will he end up in Cleveland again?
  • Former Indians pitcher Kevin Millwood is calling it a career. Millwood, 38, went 9-11 with an AL-best 2.86 ERA with Cleveland in 2005. He’ll make an interesting candidate for the Hall of Fame when he reaches the ballot in five years.
  • Canzler wasn’t the only former Indian to find a new home this weekend. Lars Anderson, whom the Tribe acquired for Steven Wright in July and flipped to the Diamondbacks in the Trevor Bauer trade, has been claimed by the White Sox after Arizona DFAed him.
