Another day and another Indians pitcher dealing with an injury. Adam Cimber is dealing with some side tightness and that is hardly what the team needs right now.
Cleveland is expected to handle Adam Cimber carefully and not risk further injury. This is usually how teams handle relatively minor injuries such as this one. The Indians know how valuable he is and want to make sure he is available for when games actually count. Adam Cimber is one of the key relievers for the Tribe. Luckily it is only Spring Training. If this was the regular season this would be a huge blow to the Cleveland bullpen.
This is just the latest pitching injury for the Cleveland Indians. Mike Clevinger suffered a meniscus injury and is expected to miss the start of the regular season. Emmanuel Clase is out 8-12 weeks with a teres major injury. Carlos Carrasco is just now stating to pitch again after experiencing leg tightness.
The goal for the Indians with their pitching should be to make it to the opener with as many healthy arms as possible. Cleveland is going to need their best pitchers, (starters and relievers), in order to take back the division from the Minnesota Twins this season.
