Man!  It's good to be back at the Transactions Log!

Welcome to the 2013 Edition of The Transaction Rundown!  Your weekly source for transactiony goodness from all levels of the Cleveland Indians organization. As always, you can get your daily fix of roster movement anytime by checking out the Transactions Log.  Just click on "2013" under the "Transactions" tab.

To recap where we stand after four days of meaningful baseball and, therefore, roster-limit compliance, Ezequiel Carrera is now a Philadelphia Philly, the Columbus Clippers are a MASH unit, Brett Brach is a "Mahoning Valley Scrapper", Robert Whitenack is the season's first inhabitant of "roster limbo" as he awaits formal assignment to the Akron Aeros 25-man roster, and the Big Club's roster stands at only 24 as we await the official call-up of tonight's starter Trevor Bauer (you may have heard of the guy).

It's a long season and we've got at least six months (hopefully seven - seriously, how cool would it be to have an edition of the TR detailing roster moves made by the Tribe between the ALCS and World Series?) of these updates to go.  This by no means will be the longest or craziest of weeks in Indians organizational roster movement, but it does get us underway.

I leave you with, as usual, the past week's roster movement laid out in it's totality in, of course, convenient list form:
