However, the team’s “Summer Camp” is already under way as Indians players convened at Progressive Field on Monday morning for training.

Meanwhile, the Indians front office is considering changing the team name as calls grow for Native American references and mascots to be removed from franchises.

Indians Manager Terry Francona on Sunday said he would support a name change.
