The following reserves did not make a plate appearance:
Will Benson (RF)

Logan Allen: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 7 K – A spectacular outing that likely eliminated any doubt that Allen will start the season as the Tribe;s fourth starter.
Cal Quantrill: H (1), 1 IP, 1 K – The most notable aspect of this outing is that Quantrill was suddenly shifted to a relief role this late in Spring Training. Might this be a sign that Quantrill will fill the reliever transitioning to fifth starter role and Triston McKenzie is headed to Columbus?
