Tomorrow I head out of town for two weeks as I will be making my annual summer trek to Florida for a family trip and then will be doing baseball related stuff at the tail end of it in Kinston.  With that in mind I felt it best to clear out the inbox before I go and post some answers to questions I have received recently regarding the Indians and their minor league teams/players.

As a reminder, while I am away things will be business as usual at the IPI with the only small exception being I may be a little slower in getting updates up right away.  Also, feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding the Indians.

Onto the Inbox...

This is tough to say right now as compensation is based on Type A or Type B status, but according to MLBTradeRumors.com Kearns pretty much has no shot at Type A or B so the Indians should not be in line for any draft pick compensation for him this offseason. He has a very long shot at being a Type B, but if you look at the listing he has a lot of players to jump over to fall into that bracket. As a Type B, the Indians would get a sandwich pick between the 1st and 2nd round.

At this point, really none of the Indians
