This article will be used to keep an updated version of the 25 man roster on the site at all times until the official roster is released. As changes are made, it will be reposted to the top of the site with the updates. At the start of Spring Training, every player in camp will be listed along with their chances of making the team. As decisions are made and players are cut, this page will shrink down until there are only 25 players left. Changes will be marked in red. Last Update: Feb 1st
C: Carlos Santana (1) - Set
Santana, Kipnis, Chisenhall and Cabrera are the only players that are guaranteed to play their respected positions as of this point. Only injury or an unexpected roster move could change any of these spots. Santana will likely play first or DH once or twice a week as he has the past few seasons in lieu of the customary catcher off days.
1B: Mark Reynolds (2) - Favorite
Other options: Nick Swisher, Chris McGuiness, Santana, Yan Gomes, Mike McDade, Matt LaPorta
Reynolds is the default first baseman at this point and will definitely make the team as a starter, but he may be the DH depending on who else the Indians are able to obtain to play first. He will likely spend some time at DH no matter who starts at either position.
2B: Jason Kipnis (3) - Set
Kipnis will be starting his second season as the starting second baseman for the Cleveland Indians and looks to be one of the most important parts of the offense as he continues to improve.
