Here is a free preview of the daily game reports provided from minor league camp. On Tuesday the Indians minor league teams played the Dodgers’ affiliates, and here is the recap of each game:


Ezequiel Carrera (CF): 1-for-3, R, K, CS
Tyler Holt (CF): 1-for-1, BB, SB
Tim Fedroff (LF): 0-for-3, R, 2 BB
Thomas Neal (RF): 2-for-5, 2 R, 2B, K
Beau Mills (1B): 2-for-4, RBI, BB
Jared Goedert (3B): 2-for-3, 2B, 2 RBI
Justin Toole (3B): 1-for-1, RBI
Ryan Rohlinger (2B): 1-for-3, R, K
Karexon Sanchez (2B): 0-for-1
Ben Copeland (RF): 2-for-4, R, 2B, 3B, RBI
Roberto Perez (C): 1-for-2, RBI
Doug Pickens (C): 0-for-2
Juan Diaz (SS): 1-for-2
Chin-Lung Hu (SS): 1-for-2, K
Adam Abraham (DH): 0-for-2, 1 BB, 2 K
Ralph Stoneburner (DH): 0-for-1

Paolo Espino – 3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K
Matt Langwell – 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K
Jose De La Torre – 1.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Toru Murata – 1.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R/ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Preston Guilmet – 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
Bryan Price – 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Notes: Neal has only been down in minor league camp for less than a week, but he has already settled in nicely and is putting some good swings on the ball. This is his second straight multi-hit effort. … The new guy Ralph Stoneburner arrived at camp yesterday morning and the Indians threw him right into the fire with his first plate appearance as an Indian on the first day as an Indian. … Espino is being built up to start, but he will likely pitch out of the bullpen and be a swing starter for Columbus this season.


Tony Wolters (SS): 1-for-1, R, 2B, 2 BB, SB
Argenis Martinez (SS): 0-for-2, RBI, K
Todd Hankins (2B): 1-for-3, K
Kevin Fontanez (2B): 0-for-1, K
Kyle Bellows (3B): 0-for-2, R, 2 BB
Jeremie Tice (DH): 0-for-3, K
Jordan Casas (DH): 0-for-1
Chase Burnette (1B): 1-for-4, K
Carlos Moncrief (RF): 0-for-3, K
Brian Heere (RF): 0-for-1, BB, K
Alex Monsalve (C): 0-for-1, BB
Dwight Childs (C): 0-for-1, BB
Anthony Gallas (LF): 0-for-2, K
John Barr (LF): 0-for-2, 2 K
Delvi Cid (CF): 2-for-2, 2 R, 3B, SB
Tyler Cannon (RF): 0-for-1, K, E

Clayton Cook – 2.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R/ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Brett Brach – 2.1 IP, 6 H, 7 R/ER, 4 BB, 1 K
T.J. House – 3.0 IP, 2 H, 3 R (1 ER), 2 BB, 5 K
J.D. Reichenbach – 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K

Notes: Not a good day for Akron hitters as they managed to put together just five hits combined as a team. … Cid still shows flashes of his ability to impact a game on the bases, but you have to wonder if this year is it for him as the bat just has not improved much the last two years. … Cook and Brach combined to go 5.0 innings and allowed 11 runs on 10 hits. Thank goodness spring training stats don’t mean anything, right?


Luigi Rodriguez (CF): 1-for-3, R
Mark Bradley (CF): 0-for-1, K
Bryson Myles (LF): 1-for-3, R, 2B, K
Aaron Siliga (LF): 1-for-1, CS
Jesus Aguilar (1B): 1-for-2, RBI
Robel Garcia (DH): 0-for-0, BB
Chun Chen (C): 0-for-2, K
Jake Lowery (C): 1-for-2, R, RBI
Alex Lavisky (DH): 0-for-2
Patric Tolentino (DH): 2-for-2, 2B, RBI
Jordan Smith (3B): 1-for-3
Evan Frazar (3B): 0-for-1
Giovanny Urshela (DH): 1-for-1, 2B
Ronny Rodriguez (DH): 1-for-2, 2B, K
Cody Elliott (RF): 1-for-3
KC Serna (SS): 0-for-2
Jairo Kelly (SS): 0-for-1, BB
Aaron Fields (2B): 0-for-4, 2 K

Felix Sterling – 2.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R/ER, 2 BB, 3 K
Enosil Tejeda – 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Kirk Wetmore – 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R/ER, 2 BB, 1 K
Ramon Cespedes – 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R/ER, 2 BB, 1 K
Jordan Cooper – 1.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Notes: Chen was playing his first game at catcher this spring as he had been limited to designated hitter duties the past week or so because he rolled his ankle and suffered a minor sprain. … This just in, but Lowery is a machine. This guy has a chance to be a very good offensive player and with very good power. I can’t wait to see what he does in his first full season at Carolina this year. … Wetmore was not sharp and his velocity was down considerably as he was topping out at 87 MPH and averaging 85 MPH, which was down from his normal 87-91 MPH velocity.

Lake County:

Zach MacPhee (DH): 2-for-4, 2 2B, RBI, K, SB
Jose Ramirez (2B): 0-for-4, RBI
Francisco Lindor (SS): 1-for-3
Yhoxian Media (SS): 0-for-1
Leonardo Castillo (3B): 1-for-4
Andrew Campbell (CF): 1-for-4, K
Jorge Martinez (3B): 0-for-3, BB, 2 E
Hunter Jones (RF): 0-for-1, R, BB
Brian Ruiz (RF): 0-for-1, K
Ryan Battaglia (C): 1-for-2, R, 2B
Eric Haase (C): 0-for-1
Erik Gonzalez (1B): 0-for-2, R
Jerrud Sabourin (1B): 1-for-1, R
Mark Brown (LF): 0-for-2
Chia-Ching Lin (LF): 1-for-1, 2B

Ryan Merritt – 3.0 IP, 6 H, 6 R/ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Josh McKeon – 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 K
Jeff Johnson – 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Xavier De Los Santos – 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K
Matt Curtis – 1.0 IP, 2 K, 1 R/ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Will Krasne – 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Notes: Battaglia has been a nice find for me this spring. I had previously seen him play very little, but in the three games I saw him play he hit three bombs. He hit a tape measure shot to left that hooked foul, and has really shown a lot of raw power this spring. … A forgettable outing for Merritt as in addition to the 6 hits and 6 runs he also served up two taters, one of which was a moon shot to dead center that hit the top of the green screening behind the fence that runs 20-30 feet high. … De Los Santos had the place abuzz with his electric arm that consistently popped in fastballs at 95-96 MPH and with good life. He is a converted catcher and could be a guy to watch this year.
