The Indians are the only organization that Jason Kipnis has known. Cleveland drafted him eight years ago, developed him as a second baseman and watched him turn into a two-time All-Star, a clubhouse leader, fan favorite and one of the faces of the franchise during its recent run of success.

For the past couple of seasons, Carlos Santana would look for Indians manager Terry Francona in the dugout before games. Santana would walk over and plant a kiss atop Francona's bald head before preparing for his first at-bat of the day. That memory made Francona crack a smile earlier this week at the Winter Meetings.
On Friday morning, sources confirmed to MLB.com that Cleveland agreed to a Minor League contract with veteran outfielder Melvin Upton Jr., who will receive an invitation to attend Spring Training with the big league club. MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reported that Upton will receive a base salary of $1.5 million with incentive bonuses available based on plate appearances. The Indians have not confirmed the deal.
The Indians have not needed the podium at the Winter Meetings for several years. In recent history, the annual event has served as a forum for building a foundation for transactions deeper into baseball's offseason. That continued this year at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort.
It has almost become a Winter Meetings tradition for the Indians. At some point, usually after a day or two of closed-door discussions have taken place, one of the club's starting pitchers pops up in a trade rumor.
Indians manager Terry Francona loves versatility among his players. Right now, though, the amount of versatility on his roster, combined with the club's offseason needs, has created a situation where there are multiple positions with no cemented solution.

The Indians are in the market for bullpen help this winter, and that became even more of a necessity following a trade made on Wednesday at the Winter Meetings. Cleveland announced that it dealt right-hander Shawn Armstrong to the Mariners in exchange for $500,000 in bonus pool money for the 2017-18 international signing period.

On Tuesday night, multiple reports indicated that reliever Bryan Shaw reached a three-year deal with the Rockies, pending a physical.
For anyone who knew Matt Pruzinsky, the clubhouse manager for the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, the past few days have been stunning and hard to stomach.
After 33 seasons of covering the Indians, Sheldon Ocker is the 2018 winner of the J.G. Taylor Spink Award, one of the highest honors in baseball writing.
The Indians have told Michael Brantley to sit tight. When the team is clear on what position he will be playing next season, it will communicate that with him.
On Monday at the Winter Meetings, the Indians announced that they have hired Brian Sweeney and Mark Budzinski as Major League coaches.
For most Indians fans, Michael Martinez is known as the hitter who chopped a pitch for the final out of the 2016 World Series against the Cubs. Cleveland views him as a great teammate, a good veteran voice for younger players and a versatile defender for the organizational depth chart. Those are the reasons why Martinez will be back in a Tribe uniform this spring.
The smoke cleared from the Opryland Hotel room long ago, but the impact of the trade made between the Indians and Padres nearly three decades ago can still be seen at Progressive Field. During Tribe games these days, Sandy Alomar Jr. takes up residence in the first-base coach's box.
The book is out on Jose Ramirez. The energetic infielder was a suprising success story two years ago and a breakout star just a season ago. Those kind of labels can no longer apply. Ramirez is now a known commodity and the expectations will remain at a high level going foward.
The Indians have joined the growing list of Major League teams to announce plans to expand their stadium's protective netting for the 2018 season.
Indians manager Terry Francona has called Dan Otero his wild card in the bullpen. No matter the situation, inning or score, the manager has trusted the veteran right-hander to come in and do the job. Otero has been called upon for one batter or parts of three innings.
Corey Kluber has rewritten several sections of the Indians' record book with his pitching prowess over the past few seasons. His latest campaign led to his second career American League Cy Young Award -- something no player had achieved before in Cleveland's long, storied history.
For the first time in three years, the top spot on MLBPipeline.com's early Draft Top 50 list is not topped by a high school pitcher. It should come as no surprise that the top guy is still a pitcher, and one from the 2017 College World Series champion Florida Gators. Right-hander Brady Singer, who helped pitch them to that title as a sophomore, is the clear choice as the best overall talent in the 2018 Draft class.
Brad Grant has spent the past decade overseeing all elements of the MLB Draft for the Indians, helping the club strengthen its farm system and making several selections that have played a role in Cleveland's recent success at the big league level. Now, Grant is moving up in the team's front office.
The Indians have a solid history of finding diamonds in the rough when it comes to non-roster invitees. Last year, Austin Jackson capitalized on that kind of spring opportunity and became a key part of Cleveland's roster. A handful of pitchers have won Opening Day jobs on invites with the Tribe in recent years, too.
Omar Vizquel was a wizard at shortstop for the Tribe, and there is no denying his place as one of the greatest players in franchise history. Now, select voters from the Baseball Writers' Association of America must ask themselves this question: Is he a Hall of Famer?
The Indians began chipping away at their arbitration cases on Friday night, signing veteran reliever Dan Otero and outfielder Abraham Almonte to contracts.
