News: Raburn will enter camp mostly unrestricted, but the Indians will monitor his workload early as his knee adjusts to increased volume and intensity, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Impact: It sounds like the team will be cautious with the 33-year-old early on, but Raburn is fully expected to be available for games when the Cactus League slate begins. Raburn has completed his rehab from September arthroscopic surgery.

News: Raburn (knee) won't face any restrictions at the start of spring training, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Impact: This doesn't come as a surprise, as a full recovery from September knee surgery was estimated at just 6-to-8 weeks, but it's reassuring nonetheless. Raburn also missed time with neck and wrist injuries last season and struggled mightily when on the field, posting a .547 OPS in 212 plate appearances. He'll have to fight to maintain a roster spot this spring.
