Indians announce signings ahead of spring game vs. Sox
MAR 04, 2014 1:13p ET
It is a busy day with a B squad game, some transactions and this afternoon's main game against the White Sox.
First for the transactions. The Indians have signed pitchers Austin Adams, T.J. House, Colt Hynes, Corey Kluber, C.C. Lee and Bryan Shaw along with infielder Lonnie Chisenhall to one-year deals. All have three years or less of Major League service.
The Tribe has also announced that Gregg Langbehn will be the replay coordinator. Manager Terry Francona told reporters today that Langbehn interviewed last week.
Said Francona on how the replay process will work: "He'll be in the clubhouse somewhere and there will be communication to the dugout. I would assume it is a hardwire so that there are no snafus. It will be our responsibility to communicate in a timely fashion. He'll call us because if there is something going on, I'm going to have to go out on the field. There's some learning to do for sure."
IF Jose Ramirez was in the starting lineup for the B game against the Angels today. ... P Matt Capps (right shoulder muscle strain) is approximately 7-10 days from initiating return-to-throwing program. ... IF Bryan LaHair is taking batting practice. ... P Frank Herrmann will have a bullpen session today before throwing in a simulated game on Friday. ... P Shaun Marcum will have his next bullpen session tomorrow and then one on Saturday.
