Clevelinks, Nov. 22: Indians Adding and Subtracting


The hot stove season is in full swing and the Indians have begun making moves to prepare for 2014 and beyond. They’ve signed players, released players, and even added players to the 40-man roster to protect from the Rule 5 Draft. In today’s edition of Clevelinks, we take a look at some of their most recent moves, among other things.

Indians Links:

  • The Indians added five players to their 40-man roster to protect from the upcoming Rule 5 Draft. Some of the choices were obvious while at least one other was a bit of a head scratcher.
  • To help make room for the additions, the Indians had to make a couple of adjustments. Chief among them was the DFA of utility infielder Cord Phelps.

    As we here at Wahoo’s on First have been saying for quite some time now, the Indians will listen to offers for shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. In return the Indians will prioritize pitching in return for any deal involving Cabrera.

  • Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports via Twitter that the Indians have come to agreement with Mike Zagurski. The left reliever will receive an invitation to big league camp this spring.
  • Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 in Minneapolis reports that the Twins once had interest in former Indian Grady Sizemore, but have since moved on. This is the first time in a long time that Sizemore has been potentially linked to another team besides the Indians.
  • Prospects Joe Wendle and Cody Anderson were honored by the Indians and named the top position player and pitcher in the Indians minor league system for 2013.

    Adding and subtracting? Who?
    WE have watched some of our best pitchers walk and the signing of a cast off.
    But, we resigned old man Giambi. That will get us back in the Playoffs.
    It’s getting exciting in Cleveland
