I got a chance to talk to Rob Neyer today, and he told me he recently spent a few days with the Indians, talking to them about their plans for this season. I asked him what he had heard about Brandon Phillips and Jason Dubois (asking about his possible playing time). He laughed and said something like this (I'm paraphrasing): "I wish I would have remembered to ask about them. The bad news is I heard zero information on them at all, leading me to believe that Phillips is not in their plans and Dubois won't get many at bats." The audio for this chat won't be up for a day or two, but when it gets posted, I'll post my question and his response verbatim. It was pretty interesting, though, and it certainly doesn't sound good for either player.
