Tomlin fifth starter; Duncan, Buck reserve outfielders

By Sheldon Published: March 25, 2011

GOODYEAR, ARIZ.: The Indians announced that Travis Buck and Shelley Duncan officially have made the team as reserve outfielders and that Jack Hannahan would open the season at third.

The Tribe also reduced the training camp roster to five, leaving 38 players. Left-hander David Huff, right-hander Jeanmar Gomez and outfielder Ezequiel Carrera were optioned to Columbus. Right-handers Anthony Reyes and Doug Mathis were re-assigned to the minor-league camp.

Reyes' bid to win a job in the rotation hit a snag because of a sore elbow. He has returned to the mound but did not have enough time to contend for the 25-man roster. Mathis, signed to a minor-league contract, has an out-clause in his deal. He will take a day or two to decide whether he wants to accept the assignment to Triple-A or become a free agent.

As a formality, General Manager Chris Antonetti announced that Orlando Cabrera would be the regular second baseman, which isn't exactly news. He also said that Josh Tomlin has made the club as starter, which was expected.
