Indians trim roster
The Indians made their first roster cutdown of spring training on Wednesday morning as they made moves with 12 players.
Shortstop Francisco Lindor is one of six players who have been re-assigned to the Indians’ minor-league camp. Lindor, who is widely-regarded as the organization’s top prospect, had a solid spring as he went 4 of 15 with a home run and four RBI.
Also re-assigned were catchers Jake Lowery and Roberto Perez, infielder Joey Wendle, catcher/infielder Tony Wolters and outfielder Tyler Naquin.
In other moves, the Tribe optioned pitchers Austin Adams and TJ House, infielders Jesus Aguilar and Jose Ramirez along with outfielder Carlos Moncrief to Triple-A Columbus. Infielder Erik Gonzalez has been optioned to Class-A Carolina.
The Indians now have 53 players on their Major League roster.
