The Cleveland Indians completed a dreadful spring Monday at Goodyear Ballpark, defeating the Cincinnati Reds, 2-1. Right-handed pitcher Josh Tomlin pitched five innings, allowing one run on three hits.
The spring season was highlighted by injuries, the suspension of Ubaldo Jimenez and a 7-22 record good enough for last place in the Cactus League. The Indians have one more exhibition game before Opening Day on Thursday. Via Jordan Bastian of MLB.com:
Indians up next: With the Cactus League schedule complete, the Indians will travel to Zebulon, N.C., for a 2 p.m. ET exhibition contest against high-Class A Carolina, a new affiliate for the Tribe. Veteran sinkerballer Derek Lowe, who will enter the year as the No. 3 starter, is slated to start for the Indians. Left-handed pitching prospect Scott Barnes -- ticketed for Triple-A Columbus -- will get the nod for the Mudcats.
