In case you missed it, this week the Indians started the process of cutting the Spring Training roster.
On March 17:
RHP Cody Anderson, LHP Ryan Merritt and catcher Tony Wolters were optioned to AA Akron.
RHP Shawn Armstrong, RHP Charles Brewer, and infielder Giovanny Urshela were optioned to AAA Columbus. (I’ll admit to an inexplicable soft spot for Urshela–he made the jump from AA to AAA in 2014. Maybe he’ll be a September call-up this season.)
And catcher Jake Lowery, outfielder Tyler Naquin, RHP Will Roberts, and outfielder Jordan Smith were reassigned to minor league camp.
On March 20:
Infielder Erik Gonzalez was optioned to AA Akron
Outfielder Carlos Moncrief was optioned to AAA Columbus
LHP Nick Maronde and outfielder James Ramsey were reassigned to minor league camp.
