Thursday Tribe Notes: Tito on Mickey, clubhouse keys winning


Terry Francona is one of the best managers in the game. If you ask him, the Tribe also has one of the top pitching coaches in the game- Mickey Callaway. "He's really good, he's prepared and he's confident. The pitchers like him." Francona said Callaway looked like a savvy veteran last year, his first year as a pitching coach. "...the way he carried himself, nothing ever sped up on him."

The Indians also have great chemistry, something a team needs to win. "This is a great clubhouse," said Michael Brantley. And that is critical in baseball. "It's just a matter of having fun, being out here and making it a good environment, said catcher Yan Gomes. "It makes it really easy to come out to the field, that's a big thing for us and the success we had last year."

Reliever Matt Capps has been shut down for a couple of weeks after experiencing shoulder pain. He suffered the injury a few days ago in a long toss session. Capps is in camp on a minor league deal. The right-hander missed most of last year with a shoulder injury.
