Jimenez was throwing mainly fastballs and cutters today in his start, so it wasn't that surprising that he allowed two runs in his second spring start. Josh Tomlin went three innings, and he was hit around as well, allowing four runs. I'm a bit more concerned about Tomlin's outing than Jimenez's, but again, there's four weeks until Opening Day.
The most interesting decision of the spring for the Indians is at third base. Jack Hannahan will make the club as either a utility infielder or the starting third baseman, while Chisenhall will go to the minors if he isn't the starter. But it's more than just a battle for third base, for if Hannahan is a utility guy, that means the Indians will likely go with only four true outfielders. So although the Indians would be sacrificing offense if they send Chisenhall to Columbus, they'll have a much better infield defense as well as much more useful bench. And if Hannahan is actually productive at the plate, they'll have a good problem on their hands.
