On Saturday Francona revealed that both sides have discussed about a possible stint on the disabled list, but "no one thinks it's needed," per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians OF Jerry Sands still might be long shot to make roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Indians outfielder Jerry Sands is having a pretty productive spring coming off wrist surgery last summer. He is batting .387 (12 for 31) with one double, one home runs, five RBI, five runs, four walks and six strikeouts in 13 games.

Sands is vying for a spot on the team's bench, but he is aware he might also have to start the season in the minors.

"I understand where I'm at," Sands said, per Cleveland.com. "They have a pretty stacked roster right now. Tito was straightforward with me. There's obviously an opportunity for a right-handed bat, but with the wrist (manager Terry Francona) told me, "Don't take every at-bat to heart.'

"He just told me to get my work in and get back going. If I don't make the opening day roster, OK, but hopefully I can impact the team at some point."

Sands hit a mammoth home run Tuesday, which traveled 480 feet and cleared the batter's eye at Goodyear Ballpark, which is an estimated 55 feet in height. Still, it doesn't appear a Herculean effort will get Sands on the Opening Day roster.

"I don't know if Sands fits yet," Francona said. "But you have to believe that a guy that can do what he does at some point is going to help us. Is it Opening Day, we don't know yet. But we're glad he's here."


Indians' Francona: 'Jerry Sands had had a really good camp'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Sands saw his 2014 season end prematurely due to wrist surgery and signed a minor-league deal with the Indians this offseason. He is 10 of 26 with one double and four walks this spring.
