Matthew Emmons/US PresswireCleveland is optimistic that the groin injury that plagued Ubaldo Jimenez in 2011 is behind him.Cleveland Indians general manager Chris Antonetti sounded cautiously optimistic over the phone early Thursday afternoon, answering questions about the work that Ubaldo Jimenez has put in this offseason, about the rotation, and about how the Indians could see the evolution of their young team.
But it wasn't long after that conversation that news broke of the arrest of Fausto Carmona, who may or may not be Fausto Carmona, and may or may not be 28 years old. There is still a lot that the Indians don't know about this case, including whether Carmona will pitch for them in 2012, or ever again.
