Our mulitpurpose beat reporter James Rapien joined Ken Carman and Anthony Lima to talk about the latest with the Indians at Spring Training and the Cavaliers win over the 76ers last night.

James talked about the walking wounded in Goodyear and what we know about the injuries to the pitching staff, if Franmil Reyes is ready to play in the outfield as a platoon player, if we should put Francisco Lindor in bubble wrap until the season starts and if the Tribe will still bring Yasiel Puig back.

James also gave his thoughts on the Cavaliers and their mini win streak with JB Bickerstaff as head coach.
