CLEVELAND — Pitchers and catchers have been in Arizona since Monday, preparing for the return of baseball.

Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger said it's very exciting to be back on the field.

"It's almost like we know we're going to be good, but we don't know how good we are going to be, " Clevinger said.

The Indians are projected to be one of the best teams in the league this year.

"It's cool to still see that we aren't completely the underdogs. But I still feel like teams are looking at us like we aren't complete anymore. I think we're excited to go out there and show what kind of team we're going to be," Clevinger said.

What's Clevinger's favorite thing about being back?

"Just making fun of Trevor Bauer, probably," he said.
