by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Indians' Shaun Marcum may not make final roster for opening day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) Indians pitcher Shaun Marcum has not pitched in a major league game since July 2013 and it may be what keeps him from making the final roster this spring, reports Cleveland.com.

Manager Terry Francona likes what he's seen from Marcum, including two scoreless innings Friday.

"I think he was probably pretty excited," said Francona. "It's been a long haul for him back. He's never been a guy who lights up the radar gun, but I thought he threw some really good change-ups."

However, it may not be good enough for him to make the team.

"To be totally honest, that's a difficult evaluation," he said. "It's spring training and he hasn't pitched for a while. We told him we'll be honest and conscientious because it's not an easy one to do."


Indians' Francona comfortable with battle for No. 5 in starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) With Josh Tomlin, T.J. House, Danny Salazar, Shaun Marcum, Bruce Chen and Zach McAllister all competing for the final spot of the Indians' rotation, manager Terry Francona told reporters that a few players may end up going to Triple-A or moved to the bullpen once camp breaks, per the Plain Dealer.

"At the moment, we're comfortable," Francona said. "We've all seen where you look up a month later and things happen. The one thing you don't ever want to have happen is have your season derailed because guys go down. You try to come to camp with not only who you think are going to be your five, but you have to have some depth. We have some guys who will probably end up going to Triple-A. Maybe a guy or two ends up in the bullpen. You never know."


Indians' Shaun Marcum healthy, ready to contribute


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Manager Terry Francona said Marcum will determine his own workload this spring. "He really hasn't pitched a lot in the last couple of years, but he is competing like everybody else," Francona said. "We told him that if he needs extra days to tell us. But in fairness to him, treat him like everybody else and we'll be really honest with him where we think he stands."

Marcum, however, is just happy to be competing. "I'm 100 percent. Everything is full go," he said. "I have a full camp, just like everyone else here. We'll see what happens."

The 33-year-old posted a 5.29 ERA over 78 1/3 innings back in 2013.
