Piecing together various reports around the Tribe beat reporter universe, it appears that OF Russ Canzler, RP Nick Hagadone, C Luke Carlin, INF Andy LaRoche, and pitchers Chris Ray, Chris Seddon and Robinson Tejada have been sent back to the minor leagues. OF Felix Pie and C Matt Pagnozzi will remain with the team until the end of spring training, but will not be on the big league club.
GM Chris Antonetti said today that INF Jason Donald and RP Dan Wheeler have made the club. Additionally, the proposed trade between the Indians and Angels for OF Bobby Abreu has hit a snag according to multiple reports. Antonetti said Shelley Duncan will be on the team, and the final OF spot is down to Ryan Spilborghs and Aaron Cunningham.
The three pitchers still in the mix for the final bullpen spot are Jeremy Accardo, Frank Herrmann and newly acquired Jairo Asencio.
Of course, these position battles are just for the Opening Day line-up. The shuttle between Columbus and Cleveland will likely thrive again this season.
