- In his latest mailbag, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is asked about the Tribe's inactivity this winter. Hoynes says that there are two reasons for this. First, the team is rebuilding.

Hoynes says to look for the Indians to do something in January and February after the first and second-tier free agents have signed.
- Cuban pitcher Yuniesky Maya put himself on display in the Dominican Republic last week. Jorge Arangure of ESPN spoke to a scout in attendance who said the 28-year-old threw in the range of 88-92 MPH while showcasing a fastball, two-seamer, slider, curveball, and changeup. According to a report from Globedia.com, passed along by Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog, the Mets and White Sox are the frontrunners to sign him. Arangure notes that Deinys Suarez, who was also on display, has not generated as much interest as Maya.
