Aubrey knows his fate

Cleveland optioned former Southwood High star Michael Aubrey to Double-A Akron on Thursday, meaning the first baseman will likely start the season at what has become a bump in the road for him.

This marks another year Aubrey will see time at Akron. He hasn't reached Calvin Murray levels there yet, but he could probably run for a seat on the city council.

Whatever analogy you want to draw, this could be a make-or-break year for Aubrey as far as injuries go. They have continually short-circuited what once was a career on the fast track.

If Aubrey can stay healthy, he could be in for a big season, making a name for himself in the Indians' organization or becoming a valuable piece of trade bait.
