The Indians optioned OF Trevor Crowe and C Chris Gimenez to Columbus, dropping the number of players in Major League camp down to 32.
The Clippers roster is almost set:
C – Chris Gimenez, Wyatt Toregas
1B – Jordan Brown, Michael Aubrey
2B – Luis Valbuena
SS – Wilson Valdez
3B – Wes Hodges
OF – Trevor Crowe, Matt LaPorta, Michael Brantley
SP – David Huff, Jeremy Sowers, Aaron Laffey, Kirk Saarloos (maybe Jae Kuk Ryu?)
RP – Greg Aquino, Ryan Edell, Jack Cassel, Tomo Ohka, Tony Sipp, Juan Salas, Rich Rundles, Frank Herrmann?
Questions still to be answered:
1) What will happen Andy Marte and Tony Graffanino? Are they both headed to Columbus?
2) Who is the fourth outfielder? (George Lombard, Mickey Hall, Stephen Head?)
3) How does the middle infield shake out? (Where do Andy Cannizaro and Jesus Merchan fit in?)
4) Who wins the final Indians bullpen spot? (Vinnie Chulk and Zach Jackson are favorites)
5) Who is in the Clippers bullpen? (Still several names in the mix)
