Minor League Releases 3-24-15

On Tuesday, the Cleveland Indians announced the first round of releases from the minor league side of the organization. Seven men were released as the organization begins to shape up the rosters for the affiliates as camp breaks in less than two weeks. Six of the seven men were members of the Captains at one point. I wish the best of luck to these guys and I hope they can catch on with another organization.
