Indians Pitching Coach Out

The Cleveland Indians have been struggling to put the ball in play as of late. The result of that? Their hitting ocach just got whacked.

From WFNY:

"The Cleveland Indians’ struggling offense has finally caught up to someone, and that man was hitting coach Jon Nunnally. The Tribe informed the 39-year old former Indians’ draft pick that he was relieved of his duties yesterday afternoon. Minor League Hitting Instructor Bruce Fields will take over for the rest of the year."

He has been replaced by Bruce Fields. More updates later.

No To Vessly at Four For Cavs?

Kyrie Irving Appears to be a lock at number one, and the speculation is now at pick number 4. Names rumored about at Four include Enes Kanter, and Jan Vessly from Serbia, as well as others. As far as speculation the Cavs will take Vessly at Four goes, Cavs the Blog says No!

From Cavs the Blog:

"ESPN has moved him to 4th on their list of top prospects and 5th in their most recent mock draft. I’ve researched what Vesely has done through the years, watched what video is available to me, and I don’t understand the infatuation with him. A top 5 pick should become a top contributor on a playoff team, and I don’t see that. I view Vesely as a great fast break finisher and high energy player; not a player that will be a star."

Let us know what you think! Draft is Thursday
