"That's the second time now [this year] he's made like an immediate impact," manager Terry Francona said, per MLB.com. "That's a big, strong kid. … That's what we had him here this weekend for, was to try to help us win a game. And he sure did."

RHP Ryan Webb up, OF Jerry Sands down for Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) The Indians have announced the promotion of veteran right-hander Ryan Webb in an attempt to bolster their battered bullpen. Outfielder Jerry Sands has been designated for assignment to create a roster space.

"We just got to the point because of some early exits (by our starters) and some inconsistencies in our bullpen that we felt we needed another arm," manager Terry Francona said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "We did not want to designate Jerry. He kind of grew on everybody. But the fact of the matter is we needed the arm and Swish (Nick Swisher) is on the horizon. I'm not talking about tomorrow, but sometime we need to look at the big picture when it comes to making decisions and we did. It was not a lot of fun telling Jerry that because he's such a good kid."

The 29-year-old journeyman pitcher has been impressive at Triple-A Columbus with one run and four hits allowed in 8 1/3 innings.

The latest disaster by the Indians bullpen was Tuesday night when it gave up eight runs from the sixth inning on to blow a 5-3 lead.

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."

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.
