NEOSI Indians Spring Training Roundup – Sunday March 4th 2018

** Sunday was a good day for the Tribe, as they topped the Milwaukee Brewers in spring training play 6-2 in Maryvale Baseball Park. The win puts the Indians at 7-3-1 thus far in the spring.

It was another big day for second basemen Jason Kipnis, as he homered for the 5th time in as many spring contests to up his average to .571 (8/14) with 10 RBI on the spring.

Two-time A.L. Cy Young-winner Corey Kluber made his second spring start and fanned 5 over 3.0 innings to record the win. Francisco Lindor recorded a pair of hits in 4 plate appearances, including an RBI double in the 6th inning.

The Indians will visit the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. Mike Clevinger goes for the Indians against Rich Hill for the Dodgers at 3:05pm.

** The AP wrote a piece today on Indians outfielder Michael Brantley, who still is working his way back to the team from an ankle injury.

“I think I’m getting older and I think I’m starting to understand it more, that I need to make sure that I’m 100 percent healthy when I come back,” Brantley said Sunday. “It takes time. It’s not going to happen overnight, but put in the hard work that you need to get done and everything comes out good in the end.”

** This young lady got a little gift today at the Indians-Brewers spring training game, thanks to the Tribe bullpen.

** You have one choice to make – Jose Ramirez or Mike Trout? Seems like a slam dunk for the most part that Trout would be the player everyone would take, but there’s an interesting story on the subject at SB Nation’s Indians site – Let’s Go Tribe.
