the winter-ball reviews were much more positive on Indians reclamation project Fausto Carmona. The big stat: In three starts in the Dominican Winter League, Carmona walked a total of zero hitters. You might say that's a slight departure from Carmona's recent work in the big leagues.
He issued at least one walk in all 24 starts for the Indians last season -- even a couple in which he didn't get past the second inning. And over the past two years, his walk-to-strikeout ratio is a gruesome 140-to-137. Carmona and Jake Westbrook loom as two humongous figures for the Indians this year.
