The Indians are a team w/o many battles going on this spring. In the few that they have, the choice will affect how well they can do in this deep division.
3rd/4th/5th SP Carl Pavano vs. Aaron Laffey vs. Jeremy Sowers vs. Tomo Okha vs. Zach Jackson vs. Anthony Reyes vs. Scott Lewis Lewis pitched well last year. Laffey is more of a reliever. Pavano needs not to be injured. I do not think Lewis really has a chance at this job even with how he pitched. Okha has had too many chances. Anthony Reyes will get a spot with Pavano and Laffey. Jake Westbrook will eventually be back for one spot.
8th RP/4th Bench Player: Andy Marte vs. Josh Barfield vs. Vinnie Chulk vs. Kirk Saarloos vs. Greg Aquino vs. Edward Mujica vs. Jeremy Sowers I have to gowith Marte here unless Chulk/Saarloos has an amazing spring.
Notable players not on team: Tomo Okha, Josh Barfield, Vinnie Chulk, Kirk Saarloos, Greg Aquino, Edward Mujica, Jeremy Sowers, Zach Jackson, Scott Lewis
