The final day of the virtual Indians Radio Week is upon us. Ray Horner conducted these interviews in Akron, though, which the vaccine, he wishes he is back in Goodyear, Arizona for 2022.
Carter Hawkins is the assistant GM of the team, which is loaded with plenty of young talent due to his years in player development.
Franmil Reyes has been with the organization since 2019, and he is the booming bat the Indians need.
Hard-throwing James Karinchak looks to be the closer this season.
Nolan Jones has had a nice spring, and he’s looking to make the club as a rising prospect.
Phil Maton is another former San Diego Padres member who’s now pitching for the Tribe.
Day 3 of Indians Radio Week is here, though the interviews are conducted on one end from the Tribe's spring training facility in Goodyear, Arizona, and the other end on West Market Street in Akron, Ohio.
Ray Horner had a good chat with hall of fame broadcaster Tom Hamilton about the stiff competition in the outfield, middle infield, and first base, and who will be the defacto leader of this team.
Logan Allen is a young arm that has been with the ballclub since 2019, and he's one of the few southpaws on the squad.
Paul Quantrill played 14 seasons in the big leagues, and now his son, Cal, is in the bigs. Like Allen, Quantrill also came over to the Indians from the San Diego Padres two years ago.
It's Day 2 of Indians Radio Week, and unfortunately, Ray Horner is unable to be in Goodyear, Arizona for spring training due to the pandemic. But it does not mean Ray won't bring you the latest on the 2021 Cleveland Indians, even if it is over the phone.
VP from the Tribe, Bob DiBiasio, talked about a very different feel to spring training, from the setting itself to player development.
Tribe broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus covered some of the question spots on the team. Who will be the utility man? How about the fifth starter? Who is in centerfield?
One of those outfielders is Josh Naylor, who proved himself worthy of being an everyday player last season after his trade from San Diego.
One of the rotation spots the Indians will not have to worry about it Zach Plesac.
Indians Radio Week in 2021 is much different, as Ray Horner is not out in Goodyear, Arizona with the Cleveland Indians. But Ray, the Indians, and everyone else has had to make adjustments, so radio week will be virtual this year.
Curtis Danburg is part of the Indians' marketing department, and he talked about the capacity Progressive Field will allow for games this year, which is about 11,000 fans.
Austin Hedges is a fairly new member of the Tribe, coming over from the San Diego Padres last year.
